Ghanaian Hiplife musician Patapaa christened Justice Amoah has dismissed the assertion that he married his German girlfriend Liha Miller so he can secure his documents to stay in Germany.
“Why will I marry a white woman just for a green card or papers to live in Germany? Why if you are given such opportunity to live in Germany will they be putting money into your pocket,” he asked show host Amansan Krakye.
“You can stay abroad for 100 years if you don’t work hard you’ll go hungry. There are people who also live in Ghana but refuse to do any menial job such people will also go hungry,”
“So when you live in Ghana and God will bless you, you’ll surely receive your blessings. Even in Germany if you don’t take care you’ll get pneumonia because the weather is very cold over there,” he continued.
Patapaa and Liha Miller’s wedding ceremony happened at Agona Swedru in the Central Region last weekend, but his former girlfriend, Abena Thickness has accused the artiste of marrying for ulterior motives.
However, the artiste debunked her claim saying: “When I go to Germany I don’t keep long just after my shows I do return to Ghana. So what papers are people saying is the reason why I married my wife?
“When you ask the blacks in Germany they’ll tell you it’s not been easy for them over there. But I’m an artiste and I continue to do shows in most countries abroad so what do I need a German citizenship permit for,” he quizzed.
He continued his statement: “You can stay abroad for so many years and you won’t make it so I do advise people who think it’s all rosy in abroad. My marriage with my white woman is not about papers because we’ve been together for the past three years.
“This is not a scam and it’s not a business venture as some people say so my love for her is for real. Why, papers for what, am I a lawyer to be reading papers,” – he concluded.
