Ghanaian socialite, Afia Schwarzenegger has threatened to take the Ghana Army on if they fail to produce the man she slapped during her father’s funeral.
In a video that went viral during her father’s funeral held in Kumasi, the Ghanaian social media commentator slapped a 34-year-old man in a video that went viral a day after the much-talked-about funeral that attracted a lot of attention from the media as her friends and celebrities alike thronged to the grounds to mourn with her.
In one of the videos that have surfaced on social media, the actress is captured giving a hefty slap to a young man which netizens attributed to the fact that he tried picking the monies sprayed on her at the funeral.
According to her, she slapped the man because he assaulted her sister to collect money that was being sprayed on them during the funeral.
Recall the alleged victim of Afia Schwarzenegger’s ‘slap’ granted an interview to detail what happened at the occasion.
In his narrative, the victim claimed that he was an instrumentalist with the military band that performed at the funeral – a revelation that has attracted the legal threat from Miss Schwar.
According to Afia, she believes the man is an impostor because she did not hire any civilian band to come and perform at her father’s funeral.
“He admitted in his interview that he isn’t a soldier. I also employed the military band. So what’s your business there if you’re not a soldier? Civilians don’t play for the military band. I went to 4bn to employ the services of the Ghana armed forces,” she said.
Speaking on UTV as a guest host of the United Showbiz show, she continues that “W/O Agyepong has said not once, twice or three times that they don’t know the man. We had a security briefing before the event which was on Friday but in his interview, he said he started playing the band and picking the monies from Friday. There was no show on Friday“.
“There was no wake and the band did not even set up. On that Friday, there was a security briefing with the Police, Military and the KNUST security of which all these things were discussed.
“It was agreed that if the band is playing and monies are being sprayed without me dancing, they can keep it. If I’m the one dancing, everyone present can pick some of the money. Now you a total stranger, go on to pick monies. I have lodged a complaint at the military police against him and if he is not arrested, I will take the military band to court,” she said.
