The Acheampong family of Ghanaian songstress Rebecca Akosua Acheampong, popularly known in the music industry as Becca, has apologised to the musician’s Nigerian husband’s family and Ghanaians in general over an allegation made by Becca’s mother, Juliana Oti, against Dr Oluwatobi Sanni Daniel.
The singer’s mother recently accused Becca’s husband of destroying her relationship with her daughter.
She accused Dr Daniel of being a thief and a gold digger who is only married to her daughter for her wealth.
Additionally, she claimed her son-in-law called her a “witch”.
Reacting to these claims in a statement, the Acheampong family, led by Becca’s father, Mr Isaac Acheampong, described the allegations against their in-law as false.
“We, the Acheampong family, will like to sincerely apologise to all Ghanaians for the unfortunate incident that has occurred with regard to our daughter Rebecca Acheampong, our beloved in-law Dr Oluwatobi Sanni Daniel and Madam Juliana Oti. The dent created, we believe, paints a negative picture about Ghanaians, our culture and tradition. Our unqualified apologies further go to our in-laws in Nigeria and the world over,” the statement said.
Below is the full statement:
We, the Acheampong family, will like to sincerely apologise to all Ghanaians for the unfortunate incident that has occurred with regard to our daughter, Rebecca Acheampong (Becca), our beloved in-law Dr Oluwatobi Sanni Daniel and Madam #JulianaOti. The dent created, we believe, paints a negative picture about Ghanaians, our culture and traditions.
Our unqualified apology further goes to our in-laws in Nigeria and the world over.
We are fully aware of the fact that our actions or inactions are vital in this matter and, therefore, use this platform to stand strong to say that NONE of the speculations spewed by Madam Juliana Oti against our cherished son-in-law Dr Oluwatobi Sanni Daniel is true and shouldn’t be given any credibility.
His conduct as a very responsible young man in this crisis further convinces us that our decision to welcome him as an in-law was nothing short of right.
The open-internet approach of discussing family issues of Madam Juliana Oti is not a reflection of the character of our family and by extension that of our country and its beautiful culture and traditions.
This family is a respectable and loving one that welcomes people with open arms. We, therefore, state again that everything that was said about our daughter and our in-law IS NOT THE TRUTH.
Rebecca Acheampong (#Becca) is a respectful girl, raised with strict Christian morals and values and will not do any of what she is being accused of.
Our beloved in-law, on the other hand, is a respectful and humble young man who has added growth to our daughter’s life.
Tobi is not a thief. He has never called his mother in law a witch. He loves and respects his mother in law and has even contributed immensely to the growth of her family in this short period of marriage.
It is sad that the name of our family and that of our in-laws have been dragged into this otherwise unnecessary matter. It is very unfortunate how a family issue has become a public issue.
We apologise sincerely and ask the public to respect the family’s privacy as we work on our internal issues as custom demands.
Thank you all.
