The Kaneshie District Court also ordered Benson to report to the Police twice a week.

The matter has been adjourned to November 24.

Benson has been discharged by the Accra Psychiatric hospital after undergoing two medical examinations.

He was expected to appear before the Court on November 10, this year. However, due to the discharge, the accused was sent to court today and a full medical report on him has been submitted accordingly.

The Court presided over by Oheneba Kuffour on October 20 this year, ordered a psychiatric examination on Benson aka Funny face at the Accra Psychiatric Hospital. He was also ordered to undergo substance abuse examination at the Police Hospital in Accra.

It urged Funny Face aged 40, to stay away from social media for a month.

Funny Face, a comedian, charged with threat of death, had his plea reserved by the Court.

Benson’s ex-wife’s name was given as Lizzy. His girlfriend is called Vanessa.

However, the facts of the matter were read out in open court.

Prosecuting Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Sylvester Asare informed the Court that Benson had been discharged by the Accra Psychiatric hospital and a full report submitted on (him) accused.

ASP Asare at the last sitting said “our suspicion is that accused’s action may be influenced by narcotic substances.”

The facts as narrated by ASP Asare are that accused is a comedian, actor, and musician residing at Millennium City at Kasoa(Odupon) in the Central Region.

ASP Asare said the accused was married to one Lizzy but they broke up in 2017.

In 2020, the accused got engaged to one Vanessa and they had twins.
ASP Asare said in February this year, Vanessa fled with their twins after they broke up, to an unknown destination.

Prosecution said on October 17, this year, the accused took to his Instagram page and threatened to kill his ex-wife, Lizzy, and girlfriend Vanessa and commit suicide.

The Prosecutor said the accused in his caution statement blamed his action on depression and his failure to take his prescribed drugs given by a psychiatric hospital.

“Prosecution suspects the accused person is mentally unstable and pleading with this honourable court to give an order for the accused person to be re-examined and report,” ASP Asare said.

“I received only Ghc 400 monthly” – Mary, former worker for Kumami Eugene reveals



Mary, a former personal assistant to popular Ghanaian musician Kuami Eugene, recently revealed in an interview that she was paid a monthly salary of just GHS 400 (about $50) during her employment with the singer.

Mary served as a live-in assistant, taking care of various household duties and personal needs for Kuami Eugene. However, despite the long hours and extensive responsibilities, she claims her compensation was far below standard wages.

“I was paid 400gh every month for my first years and they payment was increased to 500gh the next year, so it continued that way until recently when i was sacked he reduced my pay to 400gh for that particular month”

She went on to describe difficult working conditions and a lack of appreciation from her former employer. This has sparked a debate around the appropriate pay and treatment of domestic workers in Ghana.

Critics have accused Kuami Eugene, who regularly flaunts his wealth on social media, of exploiting his employee. But others have noted that low wages are common practice in the domestic service industry across the country.

Mary’s account has shed light on the broader issue of fair pay for domestic workers in Ghana. It has raised questions around the value placed on traditional “women’s work” and what constitutes ethical employment practices in private homes.

As Kuami Eugene remains silent regarding his former assistant’s allegations, many will be closely watching to see if or how the popular musician responds. In the meantime, Mary’s experience is fueling an ongoing public dialogue about labor rights and equitable treatment.
