Inna Mariam Patty, CEO of Exclusive Events Ghana, the organizers of the annual Miss Ghana Beauty pageant has said Ghanaians don’t appreciate her sacrifice.
According to her, she has put in a lot of effort to ensure that Ghana’s premiere pageantry continues to live up to expectations.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with MzGee, the 2004 winner of Miss Ghana stated that she is saddened by the negativity surrounding the Miss Ghana show.
“When I sit back and reflect, it saddens me because you’ve sacrificed a lot of time, effort, resources to impact society, to position your country out there and people do not appreciate it …but it is something that I am passionate about.” She told MzGee
Miss Patty added that the Miss Ghana pageantry is more than the prizes associated with winning the crown.
“Miss Ghana is not only about cash, car and crown. It is about service to the country. This vision has been carried through from when Reginald Laryea was running Miss Ghana, up until some point Shirley leased the franchise for five years and now we have taken over completely,” she explained
In December 2017, three former winners of the Miss Ghana pageant accused Inna Patty of pimping them to men.
The queens – Stephanie Karikari (Miss Ghana 2010), Antoinette Delali Kemavor Miss (Ghana 2015) and Giuseppina Nana Akua Baafi (Miss Ghana 2013) claimed they were sometimes pimped to raise money to support the pageant run by Inna Mariam Patty and Exclusive Event Ghana.
Inna Mariam Patty has however, denied all allegations describing them as baseless.
