Family of the mystery lady identified as Janet Bandu who has disappeared with Hiplife life artiste Castro is shattered in disbelief that their dear sister and daughter has been missing since Sunday and feared dead.
As if the difficult in dealing with the disappearance of their daughter was not enough, the Bandu family also has to deal with some rumors about Janet suggesting that she is a sea goddess.
Gifty Bandu, Janet’s elder sister stated in an interview on Neat FM’s “Entertainment Ghana” that people should cease insinuating that her sister is a sea goddess and asked Ghanaians to stop referring to her missing sister as ‘Maame water’, also known as mermaid – a mythical sea creature that has the body of a woman from head to waist and the body of a fish from waist downwards.
Gifty Bandu, pleaded with the public to understand the pain and trauma the family was going through now and stop making things worse with allegations that Janet is a mermaid who has eloped with Castro to marry him under the sea.
“My sister is not ‘maame water’. She is a human being. She was in I’m in Love with Bomaye’ and people know her …When we hear such reports, it brings us a lot of pain. Maame (Jane) is not ‘maame water’. She is a human being like any other person. She is my sister. And we are praying that she would be found and Castro too would be found. People should stop saying she is ‘maame water’ and stop saying absurd things about her,” Gifty Bandu stated.
“The kind of weird stuff being said about my sister cannot be countenanced by the family anymore. I want people to know that my sister is a human being and she belongs to a family. I am pleading with Ghanaians that they should bear in mind it is an accident and we all need to pray for her life and that of Castro rather than spreading false rumors because I still believe my sister is alive”.
