It has emerged that the controversial DNA test conducted by Dave Joy, the ex-husband of Gospel musician Joyce Blessing, which showed some foul play in the parternity of their kids was carried out without her consent.
This was disclosed by broadcaster Kwesi Aboagye who has grapevine information about the whole brouhaha that has raised suspicion that Joyce’s may have had an extramarital while she was married to Dave Joy.
Earlier, reports had it that results of the DNA test on all three children showed that two of them were not for Dave Joy. But this claim was later rebutted by the Peace FM presenter who clarified that only one child’s DNA came out “paternity excluded.”
Kwesi Aboayge, during an interview with Lawyer Tweneboah Kodua to uncover whether the conduction of a DNA test requires the consent of both parents, claimed that he has been informed that Joyce Blessing was unaware of Dave Joy’s action.
According to him, Dave Joy went for the kids under the pretext of taking them shopping, only for him to take samples of the children for the test.
“Our investigations show that the children were in the custody of the lady Joyce Blessing. The man [Dave Joy] went for them saying they were going shopping. That was when the sample of the children was taken for the test. So, per what we know, the lady never knew about the test. More or less, her consent was never sought”, Kwasi Aboagye said as he laid the premise for the interview.
Lawyer Tweneboah Kodua however decided to not address that matter especially because the issue is in court. Instead, he did a general education, stressing that, all parties should be aware of the test because, at the end of the day, every test has implications.
Besides that, he noted that it was imperative for all parties to be in the known because “if for nothing at all, it will take away doubts”.
He emphasized that “for one person to go and do the test, I do not think it’s the proper thing to do.. I don’t think it should be unilateral; I think it should be a bilateral decision. It’s either both of them have agreed to do the test or it’s a court
Kwesi Aboayge had said: “Indeed, a DNA test was conducted and it proved that it’s just one child that doesn’t belong to Joyce Blessing’s ex-husband out of the three children. You haven’t seen any DNA test yet you keep gossiping and spewing lies.
“Some of you are reporting that Joyce Blessing’s ex-husband has discovered that two of their children are not his,” he stated on his Peace FM Entertainment Review show.
He continued: “You’re lying. That’s not true. Stop the lies, it’s not a good thing. If you want to know the truth about the issue, you need to ask the people involved. You need to embark on thorough research. I know what I’m saying. These are sensitive matters so if you want to talk about it, you need to be sure.”
Meanwhile, former fetish priestess Nana Agradaa, now known as Evangelist Patricia Oduro Koranteng, has waded into the Joyce Blessing DNA saga that has gained public interest.
In a subtle reaction to the scandal, Nana Agradaa asked Joyce Blessing to realize her wrong and repent because her cup is full and there is no way she can hide.
She said this amid teasing.
