Hajia4real has been extradited and is facing charges of fraud and money laundering

Mona Faiz Montrage, a well-known Ghanaian social media influencer and musician known as Hajia4real, has been charged and deported from the United Kingdom to the United States.

The artist has been charged with participating in a series of romance schemes as well as laundering the earnings from those schemes.

Montrage was apprehended in the United Kingdom on November 10, 2022, and extradited from the country on May 12, 2023.

Hajia4real will appear before U.S. District Judge Paul A. Crotty, who has been assigned the case, later today.

She faces one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, one count of wire fraud, one count of money laundering conspiracy, and one offence of money laundering, each having a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

Montrage is also charged with one crime of receiving stolen money, punishable by up to ten years in jail, and one count of conspiracy to accept stolen money, punishable by up to five years in prison.

Damian Williams, United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and Michael J. Driscoll, Assistant Director in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) New York Field Office, announced the unsealing of a six-count indictment charging Mona Faiz Montrage with participating in a series of romance schemes and laundering the proceeds of those schemes.

In the case of one victim, Montrage used her real name and called her multiple times.

Montrage provided the victim with a tribal marriage certificate claiming she and the victim were married in Ghana.

Montrage received roughly 82 wire payments totalling approximately $89,000 to ostensibly assist with costs linked with her father’s farm in Ghana.

Montrage had control over bank accounts that received more than S2 million in stolen funds from the Enterprise.

Nungua Stool summons Fella Makafui and Medikal to appear for land paperwork

This discovery occurs in the midst of the couple's widely publicised divorce. Fella Makafui and Medikal, previously regarded as one of Ghana's most gorgeous couples, have suffered through a tumultuous split. Their relationship, which began with a high-profile wedding in 2020, has begun to exhibit symptoms of strain over the last year. Despite their split, both partners continue to reside in the same home and co-parent their daughter, Island Frimpong. This arrangement has caused more issues, with Medikal apparently requesting Fella to expel her cousin from the home.

The Office of the Gborbu Wulomo-Shitse, Overlord of the Gadangme State, extended formal invitations to both persons, requesting that they appear at the palace for document verification.

Rev. Dr Gyasi Ankrah, Director of Administration at the Office of the Gborbu Wulomo-Shitse, issued the summons, which requires Fella Makafui and Medikal, real name Samuel Adu Frimpong, to bring their complete documentation to the palace on Friday, May 24, 2024, at 11:00 a.m. for verification.

This arrangement has caused more issues, with Medikal requesting Fella to expel her cousin from the home.

Fella has also asked the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) to examine Medikal, adding another layer to their continuing conflict.

Their current residence has been a source of contention.

Medikal maintains he paid for the property with his own money, but he signed the deeds under Fella’s name out of doubt and for their daughter’s welfare. “I built everything with my own money but only put Fella’s name due to uncertainty and for Island’s sake,” said Medikal.

On the other hand, Fella opposes this assertion, claiming that she helped create the house and can prove it in court, citing the financial and emotional contributions she made during their marriage.

Given the contradicting claims, the authorities decided to conduct an investigation.


The land records, which include both Fella and Medikal’s names, caused the Nungua Stool to intercede and confirm the validity of these claims.

“For my deep respect for our two families, for the relative privacy which the institution of marriage requires and, most importantly, in the best interest of our beloved daughter, I have decided to resort to only lawful and appropriate forums to address my grievances.

Actress Fella Makafui has disclosed why she has contacted the police regarding her marital issues.

Despite their amicable divorce agreement, the actress declared in a press release that she had taken note of her former husband’s social media comments regarding their four-year marriage.

As a result, she is unwilling to wash their dirty laundry in public, therefore she has decided to take the problem to police enforcement.

“For my deep respect for our two families, for the relative privacy which the institution of marriage requires and, most importantly, in the best interest of our beloved daughter, I have decided to resort to only lawful and appropriate forums to address my grievances.

“To that end, I have reluctantly initiated a legal process which I believe will ensure that my daughter and I are safe and also that l and my husband’s co-parenting duties are properly and sufficiently streamlined and regulated in accordance with law,” the May 18 release read.

In addition, the actress expressed appreciation for the support extended by her friends, family, and business associates. However, she pleaded for time to resolve the issues.

“I am sincerely grateful to you for the extreme support which you have given to me, my family, and my businesses and brand over the years. I, however, plead with you to understand the privacy which the difficult time that I am in now requires,” the release added.
