In the ensuing controversy surrounding Afro pop singer, Becca’s prevention from giving a live rendition of the national anthem at the Ghana-Zambia world cup qualifying game in Kumasi, the Ghana Football Association has indicated that they were not aware of any such arrangement.
A couple of days ago, it was made public that Becca was contacted to perform the National Anthem at the Ghana-Zambia game in Kumasi but at the 11th hour, the performance was cancelled.
According to her, the only reason she got was that authorities have given a directive to stop her from performing since she is a woman and that could spell doom for the Stars.
However, in an interview with the Graphic Showbiz, a spokesperson for the Ghana Football Association (GFA) who was part of the planning for the Ghana-Zambia match indicated that it never cropped up in any of their pre-match meetings that Becca was to sing the national anthem.
“What we knew all along was that the Ghana national anthem would be played over the stadium public address system. If some arrangements had been made is some quarters for Becca to sing live, the GFA was definitely not aware of that,” the spokesperson said.
We are still not sure who is speaking the truth in this issue but we will keep you posted on any development from the two camps.
