There is a new sting in the tale of the identity of Anas Aremeyaw Anas. A photo circulating purported to be of the journalist is actually being claimed by a Kumawood actor.
The popular actor, Davis Abraham, also known as Salinko, is claiming that one of the photos making rounds is actually of him. The photo was first shared by controversial MP, Kennedy Agyapong on his television network, NET2.
Right after the photos were broadcast on the station, the media airwaves of Ghana were sent into the mixed reaction. While some claimed that a well-connected politician such as Mr Agyapong could not have been lying about the photos, others did not care or believe it.
Indeed, the editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide, Abdul-Malik Kweku Baako, who is a mentor to Anas, has rejected the photos. According to the veteran journalist, the photos making rounds on social are not of Anas.
But in response to Kennedy Agyapong's release of the photos, Salinko has said that one of the photos is of him. The actor compared the said photo to another one he most recently took. Knowing that Anas' works in the past have gained him a lot of enemies, Salinko has expressed fears for his life.
Sports journalist Saddick Adams took the comments and the photo of the actor to Twitter. It has since generated a lot of debate as to whether Salinko is saying the truth. YEN.com.gh is of the view that the photos of the one purported to be Anas and that of Salinko do look alike. We, however, cannot confirm if both photos are of the same person.
