Reports suggesting that Nana Aba Anamoah denied the father of her son access to the boy may not be true. Mynewsgh.com has reported that Nana Aba’s baby daddy, Richard Brown actually denied responsibility for the pregnancy when it happened.
Recounting the whole pregnancy saga as told by Nana Aba’s close friend, the report stated that it was an afternoon in the early part of the year 2002, and there at a pub in a suburb of Accra was a cute pregnant young girl who was seriously wailing and crying her heart out about what ‘Richard has done to me’.
She was just an innocent lady, then in secondary school. According to her, Richard, whoever he was to her, owner of a boutique (247 Boutique at North Kaneshie) has impregnated her and refused to take responsibility for it.
She maintained to her friends who had come to listen and help her out, that Richard is the only man she has ever known up to that point but he said he is not responsible for the pregnancy.
He sacked her from his place when she went to inform him, vowing to deal with her if she ever mentions his name in relation to any pregnancy again.
The girl, was Nana Aba Anamoah, the mother of the now handsome son Paa Kow, who Ghanaians saw for the first time in 2012 at the RTP Awards– and the man, is the same man who a week ago emerged on Facebook, claiming paternity of his child on social media.
It was at the pub, where Nana Aba was crying and wailing that some of her friends suggested abortion to her while one particular friend kicked against the idea.
According to the anonymous source, Nana Aba Anamoah herself told them how scared she was about abortion and would want to keep the pregnancy to prove a point in future, if she gets her parent’s support. She needed someone to lead her parents to explain.
According to this unnamed source, the then SSS girl Nana Aba made several efforts to let Richard Osebo know he is responsible for her pregnancy and own up to her parents, and she maintained that he knew it was his, but on all occasions he refused, even allegedly assaulting her on occasions when she persisted and came to him crying.
“It was after all that that failed that she had to fall on us (friends)”.
Mynewsgh.com further reported that it was one of Nana Aba Anamoah’s friends who kicked against the abortion option who, knowing Nana Aba’s passion for ‘talking’ and journalism and how bright she was, promised to help her get into the media and work only if she is able to keep the pregnancy. The friend kept her word.
Nana Aba Anamoah’s friend made a point that “the man claiming to be father of the son doesn’t even know the hospital his “son” was born in”. “Can he show any picture with his “son”?, she asked.
“These are the men who impregnate young girls and deny responsibility only to turn up when they see a promising child,” she said.
But a lot more happened in between when Mr Richard Brown, popularly known as Osebo the Boutique owner, saw the same girl he impregnated and refused to accept, making waves on TV.
Forward to the present and Richard Brown, following Nana Aba’s Instagram post about her son, emerged on social media claiming to be the father of the boy and professing how much he loves the boy.
Since Brown’s claim, there have been news stories flying back and forth with the latest being that Nana Aba had shut him out because he could not give her some money she requested.
Though the latest report that Brown had impregnated Nana Aba and abandoned her is not coming from the popular broadcaster herself, it must be noted that she stated somewhere in 2016 that she had not had contact with her baby daddy in about 16 years.
