Ghanaian actor and presenter, Lil Win apologizes to Dr Opuni on his ADOM TV show. On March 24th 2018, Lil Win made certain allegations against the former CEO of COCOBOD. In his comments, he alleged that Dr Opuni had stolen state funds to benefit himself.
Obviously, this was a statement that the former CEO felt was malicious. Hence, he sued both Multimedia and Lil Win for making such defamatory comments on the platform of Multimedia.
Lil Win was reported to have made these direct comments in Akan.
” One individual has packed all this money in his room and is spending it. He is building big houses while our roads are in deplorable states and we’re experiencing instability in our energy sector. God is our helper”.
In addition to this statement that was made in Twi, Lil Win also showed numerous metal boxes in rooms. While speaking on Adom TV, he alleged that those boxes were filled with money and belonged to Dr Opuni.
His claims, therefore, ignited Dr Opuni to sue him in court for defaming him and especially claiming part of the money was used to construct a plush tomb where his later mother was buried.
The actor was subsequently sued by Dr Opuni together with the Multimedia Group Limited (MGL), owners of Adom TV, for GHC10million for defaming him.

Multimedia Group thus made a retraction with Lil Win and pleaded for an out of court settlement. Appearing on the show today, he referred to Dr Opuni as Papa, asking for forgiveness from him. He played the devil’s advocate pleading on the religious inclination of Dr Opuni.
“Papa forgive us our sins and forgive all those who were part. We know you are a child of God and will give us the needed hearing, God bless you,”.
As we speak, we cannot ascertain whether Dr Opuni would continue or would heed to the plea of Lil WIn.
