By the time you read this, you may have already seen Number 12.

But it looks like Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ latest investigative work on corruption in football (as the promotional material suggests) is a box-office hit even before it would be screened at the Accra International Conference Centre yesterday and today.

There has been so much talk, drama, allegations, counter allegations, attempts to unmask Anas, other attempts to expose him as a corrupt person and the whole nine yards of trying to ensure that the show would not happen as planned today.

The biggest sideshow to this was when the President of the FA, Kwasi Nyantakyi was invited by the police, upon a directive by the president, as a result of what he was purported to have said in the yet to be aired investigative piece.

Following that incident, the member of parliament for Assin North, Kennedy Agyepong has gone to town to scream blue murder and so have others who feel that Anas has not been truthful about his own dealings and thus should be investigated just as he investigates others.

The MP has been to one radio station after another and gallivanted from one television station to another to drum home his point of making sure that Anas is exposed as a fraudulent person.

He has released photos that he claims are Anas and has said things that suggest that the investigative reporter has no locus to judge others both morally and legally.

Despite this campaign, or rather as a result of this negative campaign against Anas, the planned showing of the report has gained so much popularity.

The number of people asking for tickets have soared and it appears, at the time of writing this on Wednesday morning, that the AICC would be tested to its seams with huge attendance.

Many people just want to know what’s in the report that many forces have lined up to ensure that it would not be broadcast as promised. In any case, the BBC have been promoting a showing this afternoon to audiences across Africa and the world, which makes the airing at the AICC a very small event relative to the audience that would see it on the Beeb and other media platforms afterwards.

By the time you read this however, some of us would have seen it and known what it was that got people foaming at the mouth in their attempt to ensure that those who desire to see #Number12 would be deprived of it.

To many people on social media, the detractors should try stop a moving train, because come hell or high water, Anas Aremeyaw Anas is their hero and his new investigative piece would show!
