A Ghanaian woman based in the US has sued comedian Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng, popularly known as Funny Face, for allegedly owing her about $53,105.53.
A writ filed at the Accra High Court on November 28, 2019, the plaintiff, Mary Ama Boansi, alleged that Funny Face took monies from her upon the promise that he would marry her but failed to pay back when the relationship turned sour.
According to the writ, Mary met Funny Face sometime in June 2016 and became friends with him.
It further stated that Funny Face later fell in love with the woman and proposed marriage to her.
In view of the love she had for him, she allegedly footed a lot of bills for Funny Face for his movie projects.
Even though Funny Face according to the writ promised to pay back the money, he has not yet done that.
The Plaintiff, is therefore, asking the court to among other things direct Funny Face to pay her $53,105.53 or its Ghana cedi equivalent being the total sum of money she allegedly gave the comedian.
She also wants the court to order Funny Face to pay interest on the said amount.
Mary Ama Boansi also wants the court to declare that Funny Face defrauded her by “false pretences.”
