Fashion designer Patricia Poku Amankwah has had enough of Ghanaians mistaking her for Patricia Poku Diaby, Ghana’s richest woman.
For a while now, the fashion designer who graduated from the Joyce Ababio Institute now JACCD Design Institute Africa has been frequently mistaken for Patricia Poku Diaby, Ghana’s wealthiest woman.
Tired of this mix-up, Patricia recently took to social media to address the situation.
Speaking to Pulse Ghana at the just ended Emy Awards 2023, Patricia cleared the narrative that she is Ghana’s richest woman.
She said; “Mind you, Ghanaians! Iam not the richest woman in Ghana, I am so tired of it, you know what ever rumours, what is happening . It’s been a while but I have decided that I have to come out and let all Ghanaians know that I am not the richest woman in Ghana. I am Patricia Poku, there is a difference between Patricia Poku and Patricia Poku Diaby.”
Patricia Poku and Patricia Poku Diaby have been confused with one another for the longest time now.
