GH₵50K Funeral Donation From Chief Of Staff: Afia Lied
Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa, popularly known as Afia Schwarzenegger, has been caught in a huge controversy concerning her claim that the Chief of Staff, Mrs. Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, donated GHC50, 000 towards the funeral of her late father held at Kumasi at the weekend.
It is however emerging that the Chief of Staff, on no occasion, offered her such an amount, and at no point did she facilitate the importation of the casket that was used to bury the deceased.
Probe by The Inquisitor into the claim by the bereaved comedienne has revealed that she is not close to the Chief of Staff as she wants the whole world to believe.
Flawless sources at the Office of the Chief of Staff told The Inquisitor via phone yesterday that at no point did Mrs. Osei-Opare meet with Afia Schwarzenegger over her father’s funeral because the two do not share any close association.
There are suspicions that Afia went out bragging with what she never received from the Chief of Staff just to spite certain personalities in the entertainment industry.
Apart from the Chief of Staff, Afia claimed in her thank you message that Fadda Dickson of Despite Media also made some huge contribution towards the so-called GHC2billion funeral she organized for late father.
The mere mention of that huge amount as monies spent for the funeral made lots of people to believe that the controversial comedienne was bragging and nothing else.
In an appreciation post shared on her Instagram page, Afia claimed that Mrs. Frema Osei-Opare contributed immensely towards giving her father a befitting burial.
“A good mother who provides for her children. What would I have done without you? Without you, I don’t even know how my father’s coffin would’ve been flown into the country. I’m on my knees and I want to thank you. Thank you, my mother. God bless you…you gave me GH¢50,000 and asked me to inform you about any extra cost…which extra cost after the huge sum you gave me? People said God will bless me for giving my father a befitting burial. I divide such blessings into two and give you half of it.”
Earlier, the controversial comedienne claimed that Fadda Dickson contributed immensely in the GH₵2billion worth of funeral she organized for her late father.
Afia disclosed that at a point, Fadda Dickson flew a specialist into the country to attend to her late father, whose health deteriorated at that time.
“Let’s give honour to whom honour is due. Father Dickson said I shouldn’t announce this but I cannot keep calm. Who should I praise? Patapaa? Or Tornado? When my father was alive, Fadda Dickson footed almost all the expenses. At a point he flew a specialist to Ghana to attend to my dad. He said he’ll do all he can to save my father because he doesn’t want to break my heart.
“Eii Ghanaians, help me thank Fadda Dickson. Where would I have gotten 2 billion cedis, a whopping 2 billion cedis to organize my father’s funeral? I mean where? The whole world tried to break my relationship with Fadda Dickson but it didn’t work,” she earlier stated in a video shared on her Instagram page.
Afia’s late father’s funeral, which was held at the KNUST poolside in Kumasi on March 12, 2022, witnessed a host of high-profile dignitaries. including politicians and showbiz celebrities.
