A Kumasi-based Broadcast Journalist, Priscilla Sarpong popularly known as ‘Chickle 1’ has in a Live Facebook video pleaded as was ordered by Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) Circuit Court for defamatory charges to a tune of GHC65,000 to be paid within 30 days or in default serve a prison sentence.
The journalist in media interviews and on social media referenced herself as the ‘incoming girlfriend’ of popular musician, Jerry Johnson Anaba popularly called Okomfour Kwadee alleged in radio interviews that the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Hammer Productions and Media Personality, Hammer Nti has in connivance with a group of people shielded all efforts by people to come to the aid of the rapper, Okomfour Kwadee who was then in a difficult place psychologically for their own material gain.
This did not settle well with Hammer as he took to the law court to settle the allegation against him. In the turn of events, the court convicted Chickle 1 to a tune of GHC65,000 on the defamatory charges and demanded of her to retract and apologize on all the platforms including Peace FM, Fox FM, Kwaku Manu TV and Akan TV where she made the libelous comments against Hammer Nti.
This is the response of Chickle 1 after the court made its judgement;
“Hammer Nti, PRO of Okomfour Kwadee says I have insulted him and he has taken me to court for that. Please help me tell him and Kwadee family that I am sorry. As I use to say that I am the incoming girlfriend of Okomfour Kwadee, please I want to tell everyone that I am no more and I don’t want anything to do with Okomfour Kwadee.
The family should warn their relative that he shouldn’t mention my name anywhere or should he see me.
Chickle, as I am here, if you ask me to loan you GHC300, I wouldn’t even get so where am I to get GHC65, 000 to pay Hammer. Please help me beg him.
I am sorry.”.
