Winner of Miss Malaika 2006, Hamamat Montia, has been accused of stealing a $35,000 Toyota Hylander 4-Wheel drive and may soon appear before an Accra Fast Track High Court over the matter.

The accusation is coming from a certain Vesa Keskinen who is believed to be an ex-boyfriend of Hamamat Montia. Reports say Vesa has already filed a writ at An Accra Fast Track Court, alleging that Sometime last year, he had to travels to Finland for businesses but before leaving, he asked a man by name Seth Mensah to go for the Toyota Highlander from De-Gjando Compnay Limited.

Vesa alleged further that when Seth Mensah got to the company, he was told that Hamamat had already gone for the vehicle though he had not given her any authority to do so. Hamamat’s ex-lover noted that he left a clear instruction that the vehicle be registered in his name but he was surprised that the vehicle ended up being registered in the former beauty queen’s name. He said all attempts to get his car from her had proved futile as he could not even establish contact with her. He therefore filed a suit against her in court as Hamamat’s posture indicated that she was out to defraud him.

Vesa said he bought the vehicle for $35,000. Though Hamamat could not be reached for her side of the story, a source close to her told News One that Vesa was only out to tarnish her image and that there was more to the story. “Hamamat is not a thief and she would not steal a car. At the age of 18, she was driving KIA Rio and in some five years later if she wants to drive a highlander, she certainly knows how to work for one. She would not steal a car,” the source noted. News One gathered that Hamamat is pursing a Public Relations course and advancing her modeling career in the United States.


In 2008, she had a mouthwatering contract to model for Senegalese R & B singer Akon’s Konvict clothing line. She has also worked for Kikiriki ki New York and Baby Phat. Hamamat started modeling at the age of 10 and in 2006, she became the youngest person to have won the Miss Malaika pageant at age 18 when she had just graduated from Achimota School. Hamamat, the last born among three children, turned 23 in September this year.
