Shaida Buari Nubi, winner of Miss Ghana 2002 has revealed she is planning to work together with award winning investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas to expose men who demand sex in return for favours.
The sister of actress Nadia Buari in reaction to men who incessantly pressure women for sex, said she has once been a victim of such act when she contested for the crown in 2002.
According to her, when she emerged winner of the beauty pageant in 2002, she never had it easy.
Speaking on Queens Arena, on Angel TV on Saturday, June 30, Shaida said that it took the intervention of God for her to skip the net of men who wanted her on their beds.
“I came across a lot of men who said if you want to get sponsored, let me sleep with you. The sex-for-favour phenomenon abounds. Till today, even within the oil and gas industry [where she works] it’s prevalent,” she said.
The sleek queen who repeatedly professed her Christian faith, on the show, indicated that: “It all boils down to morality. Thankfully, I can beat my chest that I never allowed myself to be used by any man. No man had sex with me in the name of Miss Ghana.”
Shaida Buari’s revelation corroborates what in recent times, former beauty queens of the Miss Ghana pageant have disclosed about the disturbing experiences they were allegedly made to go through by organisers.
The beauty queens have complained of assaults, abuses, exploits and how they are pimped out to preying men, in return for sponsorship deals and monies.
