Even though Becca, real name Rebecca Acheampong, was the monarch of all that she surveyed by scooping the ultimate award at the just ended 3rd Edition of the 4Syte Music Video Awards, held at the Accra International Conference Centre on Saturday, November 19, 2011, the “Daa ke daa” hit maker went home very worried.
Her anxiety was borne out of the fact that moments after receiving the award for “Best Overall Music Video” and after giving her acceptance speech, the sultry singer returned to her seat only to realize that her hand bag had been stolen.
As a matter of course, Becca became very restless and with the help of her Manager, Kiki Banson, went asking round if anybody had chanced upon her hand bag. But unfortunately that was not to be. The MCs had already signed off by saying their goodbyes, and most patrons were already streaming out of the auditorium.
A shell-shocked Becca, confirmed this to Peacefmonline.com’s Entertainment Reporter, Eugene Osafo-Nkansah when he bumped into her, looking all forlorn despite winning the overall best award.
“Someone has taken my bag…It was right here. I am surprise I don’t even know what to say…i have my car keys, some amount of money, some important personal documents (ID and call cards)…but my biggest worry is how to get my car keys back,” she said.
Strangely, and in the twinkle of an eye, whiles good Samaritans went searching for the bag, onlookers were bemused to see Becca’s missing bag resting on her seat once again.
How it got there still remains a mystery. But the smile and relief on Becca’s face was short-lived when she realized that though her car keys and other valuables were intact, her money (unspecified) was gone.
Asked how much money was in the bag, the renowned songstress was not forthcoming with a figure, but only stressed that the most important thing was that she got her car keys back.
Becca was not the only celebrity to suffer this fate, as several other stars and some members of the general public also lost their mobile phones, hand bags, designer eyeglasses (shades), partly because of over-crowdedness and poor security arrangement especially at the VIP section, where all the music stars and other dignitaries were seated.
Becca won two awards on the night; aside taking home the“Overall Best Music Video for 2011”, she also won the “Best Female Video” for her song “African Woman”. She expressed her profound thanks to the Almighty God and also to her “Special 3 Fs” - Fans, Family and Friends – for the honour done her.
Special thanks was reserved for her manager Kiki Banson, CEO of EKB Records, for discovering her, grooming her and for the faith he has shown in her till date resulting in who she is now.
