The Cantonments residence of Pope Skinny, the famous Akuapim hiplife artiste and host of Adom FM’s ‘Kasahare’ programme was reduced to a boxing arena on Saturday, 11th September, 2010 when he threw caution to the wind and ruthlessly beat his girlfriend, Efua, who also doubles as his manager.

Checks conducted by the Today newspaper revealed that the two, who have been dating for some years now, have recently been on bad terms. In a telephone interview with the victim on Wednesday, which attempted to ascertain the authenticity or otherwise of the story, Efua corroborated the story saying “I was beaten severely by Pope Skinny and even sustained some varied injuries and bodily bruises.”

She retorted …..”As I am speaking to you now, I am even on my way to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU) to lodge an official complaint to them and I will make sure that he is punished.

The case is now with the police and he would soon face the court of law.” As if Efua’s reaction was not enough, she went ahead to threaten that she would take legal action against the paper should it go ahead to publish the story.“I have told you if you publish the story I will sue the paper. This is a personal problem so I don’t expect it t o be published,” she warned.

Attempts to reach Pope Skinny for his side of the story proved abortive as he refused to answer calls to his cell phone.

An anonymous source close to the Akuapim lyrical Rapper recalled in an interview with ‘Today’ that a little argument between the two flared up tempers, resulting in the brutal fight. The source indicated that Pope Skinny outmuscled his lover during the scuffle and beat her mercilessly, leaving her to bleed profusely.

“The incident happened when Pope Skinny returned home late after presenting his show ‘Kasahare,’ a three-hour hiplife show on the Tema based Adom FM that usually airs from 7p.m., to 10p.m. I can’t tell what exactly led to the fight. All I heard was a heated argument between t he two, after which Skinny pounced on Efua and even threatened to stab her,” the source told Today.

The source went on to state that but for t he timely intervention of some residents and good Samaritans in the area, who rushed her to the hospital, Efua could have died as a result of excessive, nasal bleeding. “The situation could have developed into something else if we had not rushed her to the hospital.

We saw her with a swollen face and a scarred nose. It is so sad that someone who should be a role model to his fans will behave that way, the source stressed.

When Ahoma Ocansey, aka Daddy Bosco, General Manager of Adom FM, was contacted to find out whether this nasty incident has come to their attention he confirmed and said “we are just discussing the issue now.” He however refused t o disclose any kind of action management will be taking against Pope Skinny.
