In an interview, Inna Patty reports that Miss Odei Amoani was “unhappy with demand required of her”.
She explained that the only expectation made on the first runner-up was the requirement for which winners work as Queens of Miss Ghana.
She further said “contestants are full aware of these requirement when they take up the mantle to be Queen”.
Exclusive Events hinted that the decision may have been catalyzed by “rather unfortunate circumstances”, on Miss Odei Ameoani part, to which management did not have the opportunity to remedy.
Inna Patty stated that “it was unfortunate that the queen could not continue with them but they wish her well”.
“We assure followers of the brand that all is well, we will still keep doing our possible best to work with winners who ready to work with us”, she said.
