I wanted to prove myself to him – Maurice Ampaw on legal battles with Asamoah Gyan


Legal practitioner Maurice Ampaw has shed light on his ongoing legal conflicts with Ghanaian football star Asamoah Gyan.

Ampaw has often been at odds with Gyan on various matters, most notably the alleged rape of Sarah Kwablah.

Sarah Kwablah, a former University of Ghana student, accused Asamoah Gyan of rape and sodomy in 2015.

Additionally, Ampaw served as the lead counsel for Ghanaian journalist Osarfo Anthony in a malicious prosecution case.

These legal disputes persisted for six years until the court finally resolved them.

Ampaw explained that his involvement in issues related to Asamoah Gyan was not driven by personal animosity. Instead, he wanted to disprove Gyan’s dismissal of him as a mere social media lawyer.

“I don’t have any personal issue with Asamoah Gyan,” Ampaw stated.

“I just want to prove him wrong because he dared me. He was discrediting me, claiming I was just a social media lawyer and not among the top lawyers in Ghana.

“So I wanted to show him that I am indeed one of the top lawyers in the country,” Maurice Ampaw shared during an appearance on The Delay Show in July 2024.

Lawyer Ampaw emphasized that his legal battles with Asamoah Gyan played a significant role in establishing him as a high-profile lawyer, especially since many of his colleagues avoided taking on such controversial cases.

“The work I do in this country, no lawyer born of a woman can match it. I handle cases that others shy away from,” he stressed.
