Asamoah Gyan Only Married His Wife Gifty

Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan, has finally broken his silence about the discourse over his marriage which has been in the news and public domain within the past week.

Gyan has admitted that his marriage is on the rocks but clarified that the process that is ongoing at the Accra High Court is not a petition for divorce but an annulment process.

What’s the Legal Difference Between Annulment and Divorce? 

There are two ways to legally end a marriage – annulment and divorce. An annulment is a legal procedure which cancels a marriage between a man and a woman. Annulling a marriage is as though it is completely erased – legally, it declares that the marriage never technically existed and was never valid.

A divorce, or legal dissolution of a marriage, is the ending of a valid marriage between a man and a woman returning both parties to single status with the ability to remarry.

An annulment case can be initiated by either the husband or the wife in the marriage. The party initiating the annulment must prove that he or she has the grounds to do so and if it can be proven, the marriage will be considered null and void by the court. The following is a list of common grounds for annulment and a short explanation of each point:bigamy, forced consent, fraud, marriage prohibited by law, mental illness, mental incapacity, inability to consummate marriage, underage marriage, adultery, desertion and physical/emotional abuse.

He also cautioned media outlets and members of the public against the misinformation being peddled about his marriage.

A statement signed by his lawyer Mr Edwin Kusi Appiah and made exclusively available to Graphic Online today (November 2, 2018) said, “Our client has noted the level of misinformation as well as the veiled and sometimes open attempt to discredit him, his family and or his friends and therefore we write for and on behalf of Mr Asamoah Gyan on matters that have come to his attention because they have been largely publicised and talked about within the media space across the country.”

Background 

There has been much talk about the Ghanaian international footballer and Turkey-based Kayserispor attacker in the Ghanaian media space throughout this week that he has sought a divorce from his wife who he married over the past thirteen years and had also asked that a DNA test be ran to determine the real father or otherwise of his children.

Statement 

The statement said: “Our client has no interest in discussing his marriage in public but the only correction he wishes to make on the foregoing is that the process that is ongoing at an Accra High Court is not a petition for divorce but an annulment process.”

The statement, therefore, asked the various media houses to be careful about what they publish on the subject in order that the children at the centre of the issue are not stressed.

It further stated that “much as our clients has no interest in discussing his marriage in public, he will hold any person, media or otherwise, to strict account on any or all things that are published about him or his children which are untrue or unpalatable.”

“For all those sections of the media and faceless outlets that have begun some sort of vendetta against our client and his ilk, please consider this letter as one, before action. If you feel inclined to test our clients resolve, then prepare yourself to do as much in the court of law,” the statement added.

Well-wishers 

The statement also expressed gratitude to all of Gyan’s well-wishers urging them to desist from commenting about his marriage.

“To those with good intentions and loyal fans of our clients, to persons who on their own begun an effort to redeem our client’s name, our client expresses his sincere gratitude but will plead nonetheless for them to stop any publications of what is, or not about our client’s marriage.”

Adom FM presenter, Captain Godsbrain Blessed Smart ignites controversy. He is the host of the station’s socio-political talk show “Dwaso Nsem”.

The controversial morning show host amidst some beautiful songs and surrounded by family and friends, went down on his knees beautifully and placed the beautiful ring on the hands of the lucky lady.

However, this move by him has tongues wagging. Many people question whether it was a stunt to add spice to the award ceremony. This is because Smart is married.

Moreover, Member of Parliament, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong last week revealed that the relationship Captain Smart had with a married woman in Germany resulted in the death of the woman’s husband.

According to Mr Agyapong, Smart had an amorous relationship with a married woman (Afia Pokuaa) in Germany and the husband of the woman later passed away due to a broken-heart.

$100,000 ‘bribe’ we paid to stop Anas video was returned – Nyantakyi’s wife

Published

The wife of embattled former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kwesi Nyantakyi has confirmed that her husband did pay to prevent the screening of the documentary that has become the downfall of the once football administration ‘tycoon’.

Christine-Marie Nyantakyi told Metro TV’s ‘Good Evening Ghana’ show that, before the screening of the investigative film, “Number 12,” some persons approached them with the demand to pay $150,000 for the film to be tossed.

She added that Mr. Nyantakyi could not afford the figure and paid a bargain, $50, 000 less to the persons they believed to be from the camp of the undercover journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team.

Tiger Eye on June 5, however, went ahead to air the documentary that brought the nation and the football community worldwide to a standstill. British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) also aired the documentary few days later.

The Number 12 film revealed how Nyantakyi had misconducted himself and engaged himself in acts of “bribery and corruption,” for which the world football governing body, FIFA has banned him for life.

He also faces a possible prosecution in Ghana.

Anas has denied that he or his Tiger Eye team ever approached Mr. Nyantakyi for a bargain.

Speaking to Paul Adom Otchere on the GEG show, Mrs Nyantakyi revealed that the money her husband paid to stop the airing of the documentary has since been refunded.

They brought $40,000 first; and then later on, they brought $60,000 dollars,” she said.

“I have not gathered the courage to watch the full video, because the small that I watched, I knew that the way he is talking; that is not my husband; something might have gone wrong,” she revealed.

The Number 12 video also highlighted other football administrators including referees and National Sports Authority (NSA) officials, most of whom have already suffered fates similar or equal to Nyantakyi
