Actor John Dumelo, one of the celebrities sent to Brazil to champion Ghana’s off-the-field campaign at the 2014 World Cup has said their main purpose of promoting Ghana at the tournament was achieved greatly.
He said as far as he was concerned, their job of promoting Ghana in Brazil as part of a volunteer work was done.
Speaking in an interview on Peace FM Wednesday morning, Dumelo denied reports that each ambassador received US$20,000 as reward.
He confirmed though that they received per diem, refusing however to state how much each ambassador received.
The Ministry of Youth and Sports in May this year unveiled a number of celebrities including ex-football stars as ambassadors who were going to champion Ghana’s off-the-field campaign at the World Cup.
They included musicians Shatta Wale, Becca, Gyedu Blay Ambolley and Amandzeba Nat Brew alongside actors John Dumelo, Nana Ama McBrown and Jackie Appiah.
