Former Ghana Football Association (GFA) head, Kwesi Nyantakyi claims he shelled out a cool $100,000 to investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, in a desperate bid to suppress a scandalous video.

The explosive footage, which surfaced in June 2018, caught Nyantakyi and a host of football bigwigs in compromising positions, shaking the very foundations of the sport.

Following the debacle, Nyantakyi waved goodbye to his prestigious posts at the GFA, CAF, and FIFA, and faced a lifetime ban from the beautiful game, later trimmed to 15 years.

But the plot thickens as Nyantakyi alleges that Anas, through his legal team, demanded a whopping $150,000 to keep the lid on the story.

Despite coughing up $100,000, Nyantakyi was told it wasn’t enough, and the video hit the airwaves anyway.

In a tell-all with Captain Smart on Onua TV, Nyantakyi recounted how he was led to Anas’ lawyer’s doorstep, only to be told his money couldn’t buy silence.

‘I gave them $100,000, but they told me the amount was inadequate and later went ahead to release the video,” Nyantakyi said on live TV.

After the video’s release, Nyantakyi fought to claw back his cash, receiving it back in frustrating instalments.

Amidst the uproar, Nyantakyi is eyeing a political comeback, setting his sights on the Ejisu by-election, hoping to score a seat on the NPP’s bench.
