Some viewers of UTV’s United Showbiz have inundated social media platforms with reservations about Mona Gucci’s claim that she is an immigration lawyer.
The socialite on February 20, 2021’s episode boasted of being a lawyer who had her internship with Abigail Williams and Co in Worcester Massachusetts after schooling at Massachusetts School of Law in 2017.
“I did Immigration Law in America… I can’t practice it in Ghana,” she said, eliciting a subsequent question from the host Nana Ama McBrown as regards why she abandoned the law profession for showbiz in Ghana.
“I worked for some time before coming to Ghana. At least, for a few years. I worked with a firm,” she reacted.
The host and her panelists – Kwame A-Plus, Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo – appeared to have been taken aback as they pondered the motivation to relocate to Ghana.
Having been in the news for engaging in an altercation with comedienne Afia Schwarzenegger and accusing broadcaster Nana Aba Anamoah of an act without any proof, her brand was still fresh in the minds of the viewers as some faulted her immigration lawyer claim.
“I think Mona should explain… You can see I’ve been fidgetting my telephone. I’m getting a ton of messages that Mona is not a lawyer. She needs to clarify,” said A-Plus.
Mona in her attempt to clarify said “When I came into the industry, that was the time you [McBrown] and Suzzy Williams all started. Be that as it may, our family doesn’t uphold the craving to be an entertainer; you should make education a priority because we are brilliant. Thus, I was doing both simultaneously…”
The following are some reactions from general society after her account.
