One of the feared and most powerful men in Ghana is the investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas. He has made a name for himself as one of the best journalists on the African continent.
For years, Anas has blown the cover of notorious ring taking bribe men and women in most of Ghana’s institutions. He has instilled fear and discipline in workers who would have otherwise taken bribes in any form to dispense unfair judgments.
Over the years, Anas has investigated institutions and such as the Immigration service, Judicial service, The practice of Galamsay in Ghana, social welfare (Specifically Orphanages), Mental Hospitals, The albino spiritual killings in Tanzania, Quack abortion clinics in Nigeria and his latest exposé in African football are some of his investigations that have shook institutions and has left many jobless and some even in prison.
What has made Anas’s work gained much attention is the fact that very few people in the world know who he is. He always appears in public with his face covered. Many people have tried to uncover his face but to avail.
With Anas being a lawyer and qualified journalist, the state has helped cover his true identity from the books in order to prevent disgruntled people with connections exposing his true identity.
Many people have been wondering how he got into the business of investigative journalism in the first place and what motivates him to do such dangerous investigative works at the peril of his life. Well, he has finally spoken up.
With the motivation to do something different that will affect society positively, he went to work to obtain evidence by disguising himself as one of the hawkers till he gathered all evidence to shame the officers. Some even lost their jobs. And that was when Anas Aremeyaw Anas was born!
READ HIS POST BELOW
“My journey started 17 years ago, I was a young reporter, I had just come out of college. Then I got a scoop. The scoop was quite a very simple story- Police officers were taking bribes from hawkers who were hawking on the street.
As a young reporter, I thought that I should do it in a different way, so that it had a maximum impact since everybody knew that was happening, and yet there was nothing that was keeping it out of the system.
So I decided to go there and act as a seller. As part of selling, I was able to document the hardcore evidence. The impact was great, it was fantastic. This is what many call immersion journalism, or undercover journalism.

VIDEO: Kumawood Actor Names Actresses Who Don’t Want To Kiss Him All Because He’s Scary
Kumawood actor Sumsum has revealed that female actresses do not kiss him in movies and he doesn’t know why they always deny his kisses even when directed by producers.
Speaking to Nana Romeo on Accra FM, he explained that “The only actress I have kissed wasn’t a star but I later had the opportunity to kiss Vivian Jill in a movie in which she needed a child and I had to sleep with her for her to conceive but she turned me down and dodged me when I tried to kiss her .
I did not ask her why she dodged me because I didn’t believe in myself. Perhaps they think since I have big eyes, I might knock them with it which scares them away”.
He later expressed his disappointment in discrimination from female actresses when it comes to kissing in movies. Sunsum revealed that most female actresses especially those based in Accra fail to kiss him and few of his colleagues in the Kumawood movie industry but accept kisses from Majid and co, an action he “cannot think far” about.
“ I watched a movie, Lilwin was directed to kiss Jackie Appiah but she denied him. Assuming it was Majid, she would have kissed him passionately with no qualms.The female actresses discriminate when it comes to kissing in movies especially the Accra actresses, What do they take us for ? or because we speak twi ?”, he quizzed.
However, reacting to whether an Accra actor has ever been rude to him, he said “yes, Van Vicker. I met him once and wanted to shake him by hand but he turned me down with a thumbs up, which clearly shows he has no regards for me and didn’t value the fact that I wanted to shake his hand as a colleague and when it happens this way the person doesn’t love you.”
I Will Continue To Invest In Ghana – Asamoah Gyan
Captain of Ghana’s Senior National team, Asamoah Gyan has disclosed to GhanaWeb in an exclusive interview that he will continue to invest in the country to create more employment avenues for the youth.
The Black Star captain who recently launched an airline, this week opened a new pub in Osu, named the BJ’s (Baby Jet’s) Sports Bar.
The event which was attended by both Ghanaians and non-Ghanaians was another history in the making for the versatile footballer cum businessman.
The Bar, adding up to Gyan’s multi-investments in Ghana including, Paradise Pac Mineral Water, Run Energy Drink, Baby Jet Boxing Promotions, Baby Jet Band, JetLink is located just behind the Osu KFC branch on the Oxford Street and also comes furnished with a restaurant, a standard bar, executive lounge and other entertainment centers.
Speaking shortly after the unveiling of the bar, Asamoah Gyan told GhanaWeb that he was bent on creating more jobs for Ghanaians and is ever ready to invest in the country.
“As a citizen of Ghana we always set up businesses to create employment for the youth who are less privileged so that is what we are doing. I want to invest more in the country, especially for the youth so they can get something doing.
All these businesses are just my way of giving back to the society. I have got a lot of investments which has got a lot of employees who are also working and getting ends meet to cater for their families, so I am also doing what I can do to help my country,” Asamoah Gyan noted.
‘Freed’ Nayele Ametefe Set to DROP names of BIG MEN who sent her
Earlier today we reported about the parole of jailed drug baron Nayele Ametefe or Ruby Gyimah who had been jailed for 8 and a half years in 2015 for trafficking drugs.
The lady, who traveled on an Austrian passport also had a Ghanaian passport which gave her ‘VIP’ treatment that made her walk with 12 kilograms of cocaine worth 3.5 million British Pounds at the Kotoka International Airport, only to be stopped by Drug Enforcement Agency at Heathrow where she was due to travel onward to the Dominican Republic.
Our checks revealed she held a Ghanaian passport with passport number G0364497 which was issued to her on 3rd August 2012. It is alleged the reason she had an easy pass at KIA was that her passport was a diplomatic one. Her Austrian passport number is P4187659.
We are picking up information that the drug baroness since her parole release has vowed to name names if certain things she was promised by the big men who sent her are not met.
According to a source close to her lawyer, who had been shuttling between Ghana and the UK since her arrest and following the confiscation of her assets, she is still “holding her cool” and observing parole rules while she hopes “the big men will keep their words, because she has lost almost everything”.
Ruby is allegedly angry that the “big men” failed to secure her family and properties even though she kept her end of the bargain by keeping her mouth shut throughout her trial. The only time she spoke was to tell the court what her lawyer had repeatedly said: “I acted alone. There was no one involved”. She told the court, even though it was obvious she had assistance at Kotoka International Airport.
Her lawyer will, later on, change his narrative to now tell the court in his final submission how “Nayele came from an underprivileged home and married a spare parts dealer at Ghana’s famous spare-parts market, Abossey Okai. She got three children, the first being 16 years old. Her marriage broke down and she has been a single mother”
The lawyer also told the court further that “Nayele came into contact with powerful people in 2004 and her life changed dramatically. She travelled extensively with influential people as their companion and has remained connected to powerful people in authority who are currently (2015) in power in Ghana.”
He pleaded with the court that his client was not cocaine baron as the media had painted, pointing out that “My Client was forced by circumstances to engage in transporting drugs to support her newly attained high-class lifestyle and to take care of her three children”, the lawyer pleaded in court.
Victor Smith as UK High Commissioner
Ghana’s then High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Emmanuel Victor Smith, over the arrest of Nayele Ametefe dispatched consular officers to see Nayele Ametefeh, a week of the night she was arrested with 12 kilos of cocaine at Heathrow Airport in London, UK.
Victor Smith said he had planned to visit the cocaine suspect himself, but later backed down and said he would rather send the High Commission’s staff to the detention centre where the cocaine courier was being held for an interaction with her. She refused to speak to anyone throughout.
Now it appears after three years behind bars and now on parole, she is ready to name names. We are following keenly.
