In a Facebook post sighted by, Nana Aba Anamoah posted "I’m willing to help you speak sensibly next time about a country that’s been kind to your ilk, church and any other organisation from your country. To be honest, they’d be shocked to the marrow to hear you speak this way about Ghanaians"

"You lot need to stop making Africa a victim of your incredibly dumb agenda"

"Here you are, Jessie Funk. I knew I’d find you.

Those lies you spewed about Ghana made you look less intelligent. That we hate the Mormons? Madam, are you okay?

No one resents your temple"

"The area your temple (the church of Latter Day Saints) stands in Accra (Ridge) is one of the richest, most peaceful and pristine neighbourhoods"

"I’ll forgive your imbecilic comments about the poverty stricken and hungry people you claim you saw around that temple and assume you just wanted to appear relevant. You looked pathetic instead"

The Celebrated Ghanaian Journalist further reminded the American Musical Artist that just as Ghana does have poor people, there are equally same people also living in America.

"There are so many Americans who call cars, shacks, tents and boxes their homes. It’s 2023. Grow up. Have a wonderful day"

It will be recalled that Jessie Funk in an interview on an American radio station described Ghana as dirty, a country with poor roads and also poor.
