Ghanaian lawyer, TV host and entrepreneur, Sandra Ankobiah, has addressed those jabbing her for being part of a long list of people who tried to meet American rapper, Cardi B.
In a series of Tweets by the famous actress, she laid the blame at the doorstep of the organisers of the Livespot X concert.
Read her tweets here:
“This could have happened to, and can happen to anyone invited to any event. And so I would imagine that the blame of the entire fiasco would be laid at the doorsteps of the organisers.
“We didn’t leave our homes to go to Kempinski on our own accord to meet Cardi B. Someone invited us there. The organisers (trusted industry people) invited us. And I would have thought the conveners of this “private lunch” would be the ones to whom all this would be directed at.
“I was invited to a “private lunch of a few selected people with Cardi b”. Time given was 1pm. I got there just after 2pm knowing how these things can get off to a late start. After about half past 2 I started asking why the event hadn’t begun.
“I was told Cardi b just arrived in Ghana a few minutes ago and so was tired and needed to freshen up for the event. She would be there at 4pm. I wasn’t happy about this but it was around 3pm by then and they ushered us into the venue to have something to eat whiles we waited.
“I had seen some friends and so wasn’t too bothered thinking we could talk and chill for about an hour whiles we waited. At 4pm when Cardi b hadn’t showed up I asked why and was told she would be there at 5. I left at that point.
“All this energy used in ridiculing the invited guests should be channelled into asking pertinent questions, especially of the organisers.
“And to all the people, especially industry people who find this humorous and have jumped on the ridiculing train, I pray if/when something like this (or anything) happens to you, people and the universe, are kinder.
Love and light.”
Some Ghanaians celebrities including Moesha, Afia Schwarzenegger, Efia Odo and Sandra Ankobiah, among others who said they were invited to meet Cardi B, were disappointed when the rapper failed to show up for a supposed ‘meet-and-greet session.
To add insult to injury, the celebrities found out the American rapper was having a good time while they waited for her in vain.
Many of them such as Victoria Lebene, Afia Schwar and Akuapem Poloo vented their anger in videos on social media, saying the rapper’s action was disrespectful.
Cardi B who got to hear of the issue said her promoters didn’t inform her of the meet-and-greet session that the Ghanaian stars were invited for.
