In my last blog, I talked about how the Chief Executive Officer of Consumer Rights Protection Agency, Kofi Kapito was exposed by the well-known TV host, Serwaa Amihere as a major harasser. However, to my surprise, some of the people have started thinking that Kofi Kapito has made Serwaa popular by talking about her butt in public.
As per early reports from Ghana News Online, it all started at the just-finished 2019 Radio and Television Presenter Awards (RTP), where Kofi Kapito made harassing comments about Serwaa Amihere and she didn’t choose to ignore it after the ceremony. Kofi being a personality on a higher place, got the privilege to present an award at the RTP 2019. While presenting the award for the ‘TV Female Newscaster of the Year’ category, Kofi highlighted how nice Serwaa’s butt is. Serwaa was also among the nominees and her name came up to which he made such comments. He left everyone in awe especially Serwaa so she couldn’t resist highlighting the fact that it’s not cool to talk about someone’s butt especially when you are an honorable personality and you are on the stage.
Serwaa took to her official Twitter handle and posted a video of the incident with the caption which says, “I had so much respect for Mr. Kofi Kapito. This is a classic case of sexual harassment. I’m appalled by his utterances. This was needless and completely disrespectful!” Her post went viral in no time which made hashtag Kofi Kapito and Serwaa Amihere on the second and third top trends of Twitter. A lot of celebrities and Ghanaians supported her however, some of them think it’s good for Serwaa as Kofi literally made her famous by making those comments, now that everyone is talking about her.
One of the FM presenters, Mike Two took to Facebook and literally fueled the whole situation in the worst possible way. The post says, “The Serwaa lady should rather thank Kofi Kapito that he gave her that hype…’look at ur butt, nice’ is rather now hyping that lady who many of Ghanaians did not know or hear the name before… Awura go thank Kofi Kapito coz he made the world come to know the name coz ur name was not known… ismike2baaby.”
It’s quite disturbing to see such comments from Ghanaians and the fellow presenter of Serwaa to say that Kofi made Serwaa famous by harassing her on stage. It’s high times that Ghanaians realize the fact that popularity is not everything and sexual harassment is a serious issue that needs to be addressed seriously. It’s no joke.
