Alleged KKD victim initially confessed she was not raped -- Mark Okraku Mantey
Mark Okraku Mantey, a close friend of embattled entertainment icon Kwesi Kyei Darkwa (KKD), says a rape charge brought against his colleague was made by two unknown guys over the weekend.
According to Mr Mantey, who is himself a stalwart of Ghana's music industry, KKD told him the unnamed 19-year-old lady at the centre of the rape allegations initially turned up to the police station to deny she was raped.
"The second day the same lady came back to the police and said she was [raped]", Mark Okreku Mantey told Joy News Monday.
According to Mr Okraku he [KKD] suspects one of the guys who made the complaint to the police is the boyfriend of the lady.
Meanwhile, the ace music producer said KKD's brand has been severely tainted.
"I think he will need some specialist who would direct him in getting the image back", he said.
Describing the situation as an image crisis, he said KKD will have to work a lot more to rebuild his image.
News broke out Sunday that KKD was picked up by police for allegedly raping a 19-year-old girl in a bathroom at the Africa Regent Hotel.
KKD insists he had consensual sex with the lady whose identity the police have been tight-lipped about.
KKD's Lawyer, Nana Asante Bediatuo, will be working assiduously to obtain bail for him at the Adjabeng Magistrates Court on Tuesday. Story by Ghana | Myjoyonline.com | George Nyavor | [email protected]
