“I have not bleached my skin. Anyone can go and ask about me at Mfantse New Town in Kumasi. Because of my fair skin, I was nicknamed Libya Broni’. You can call Emmanuel Agyemang Dua and, Samuel Osei kuffour. They all know I was a fair person.

What happened was that, someone poisoned me and my condition became very serious. I lost consciousness and that took me to Korle Bu Teaching Hospital. That is when my skin color changed. Everybody thought I was dead, because my skin became like a charcoal. I was sent to the UK later and when I came back to life, my skin had changed to something else. So, it is not bleaching, those who don’t know me, should stop spreading false allegations about me”. Apostle Dr. Isaac Owusu Bempah indicated.
