A photograph of sexy songstress Rebecca Acheampong also known as Becca and renowned photographer Rodney Quarcoo have surfaced on the internet.
But the subjects in it say there is nothing to the sexually suggestive photograph.
Some faceless individuals distributed the image on the internet, claiming it was released by Quarcoo who sought to use it to blackmail Becca and make some cash. They said Quarcoo had threatened to release a video of a sexual encounter with Becca and another songstress, Eazzy, if they fail to pay an amount of GHS20,000.
But Rodney Quarcoo, the man at the centre of the controversy has dismissed the reports as laughable, saying it is a deliberate attempt to tarnish his image and that of the songstress.
Narrating his side of the story, Rodney Quarcoo said there was nothing lascivious about the photograph.
“It’s not something that is being hidden, is not like this person found it somewhere. ..I wasn’t hiding it. It’s on my blog … that’s where they found it and decided that they will write all those [stuffs] that they wrote. I saw it; I thought ok fine I mean this is what someday has time to say about me…I am flattered that somebody has the time and energy to write all sought of nonsense. If it was true, obviously I won’t be walking around here laughing about it … just the fact that it’s not true,” he said.
While denying the existence of a sex tape, Rodney said “I had a photo shoot with Becca at the studio with her manager and her assistant on Tuesday. Threatening to release a sex tape of Becca and I and Eazzy and then I am asking for GHS20,000. If I want money, it’s not GHS20,000, [that can’t solve] my problems. We were all fully clothed; there were people in the room. I know it’s not true, she [Becca] knows it’s not true.”
Eazzy has denied it adding she has only heard the name of Rodney Quarcoo but has never met him.
“I don’t know him, I haven’t met him before but I heard his name. I think he is a photographer…but I haven’t met him in person … I don’t know what he looks like so I guess this answers the whole calling and the whole intimacy … if I don’t know what he looks like then I obviously haven’t met him before to even have an intimacy with him or have a tape like that with him,” she denied.
“I don’t know where this is coming from seriously it is really funny,” the bubbly songstress said stressing, “Nobody has called me to demand for any amount of money not even one pesewa. My management team, they are so not even aware of what is going on.”
All attempts to reach Becca and her manager for their side of the story proved futile.
