Ghanaian socialite and owner of the Pot of Shuga restaurant, Abena Serwaa Frimpong, popularly known as Shugatiti, has filed a defamation lawsuit against popular man of God, Frank Gogo, and two others.
This comes after Gogo, also known as Prophet Ekatso, allegedly referred to Shugatiti as a demon of the sea known as “Mami Wata.”
The pastor made these allegations during an interview on Oman Channel with host Msomfo Efia Empress.
He claimed that Shugatiti was using exoteric powers to lure people to buy her food and that she was possessed by a marine spirit. He also alleged that anyone who visited her restaurant would end up being possessed.
In response to these claims, Shugatiti vehemently denied them and filed a lawsuit against the pastor, the media establishment, Mama Radio GH, and host Msomfo Efia Empress.
According to her, the allegations have caused irreparable damage to her reputation.

In court documents obtained, it is alleged that the plaintiff is a demon-possessed person of questionable character and means and hence it is dangerous for ordinary right-thinking members of society to be associated, acquainted or have any contact whatsoever with the dentist.
Shugatiti’s lawyer in her statement of claim is asking the court to declare that the words uttered by the defendants on Oman Channel, which was published on 16th April, are defamatory.
The lawsuit also seeks a number of claims, including general damages for defamation of character, punitive damages, and four other claims.
Shugatiti has taken to Twitter to express her readiness to meet the man of God in court for him to prove the allegations.

The case has generated a lot of interest on social media, with many people expressing their support for Shugatiti.
Some have also criticized the pastor for making such allegations without any evidence to back them up.
The case is expected to be heard in court soon, and many are eagerly waiting to see how it will play out.
