Actress Lydia Forson has responded to the purported leaked nude pictures of her circulating on social media.
Not one to bite her tongue, she took to her blog to slam those making up the rumors.
Read full statement below.
Usually, I don’t like to dignify stupidity with a response, but clearly not everyone shares the same sentiments.
For hours all morning I’ve been on the phone trying to assure people I’m ok and this isn’t me however the more calls I receive the more I realize perhaps people don’t know me as well as I think they should. And more than anything it is that that makes me sad.
See when things like this happen, I’m forced to believe that what’s wrong with Ghana isn’t its leaders, but it’s people. How easily manipulated we can be and how unwilling we are to search for the truth or even think for ourselves.
12am I got a message from a friend claiming there was a naked picture of me circulating, now you have to understand that each time I hear something like this I’m not too surprised. In 2010 a similar incident happened and nearly 5 years down the line we all found out on live radio that a few individuals thought it would be nice to defame someone’s character.
Anyway back to the message, I told her it wasn’t me and she was quick to say ” your breast are even smaller kraaa”, we laughed about it and moved on. Perhaps I was naive in thinking people were smart enough to know it wasn’t me.
Hours later my phone was bombarded with calls from family “friends” media and you name it, I went back to look at the picture and although the lady in question looked like me, I couldn’t understand why no one could tell it wasn’t me?? Seriously!
A friend attempted to say maybe the picture was photoshopped, but I refuse to hide behind that excuse because it will only encourage the notion that the picture is indeed of me.
So here’s the thing, the picture is probably real and the lady in question bears a striking resemblance to me, which shouldn’t be so strange because we all have a look a like or more somewhere. She has an amazing body and she has no problem flaunting it however, I wouldn’t want to take credit for her work.
But dear fellow Ghanaians, if this doesn’t say a lot about who we are as a people then I don’t know what does. We are so quick and eager to spread any story without stopping to think ” is this even true?”. The delight we take in tearing people down not only worries me but scares me a little.
The people who started this story clearly know what type of people we are and you all played right into their trap, they knew a lot of people would be all so eager to share the picture with their friends without so much of a thought. They know by allowing you to “Guess which Ghanaian Actress This Is” they can not be held accountable for your speculations.
This thing didn’t start with me, and it won’t end with me either, because as long as we refuse to think and allow ourselves to be controlled by our desire to tear people down the story will go on.
I DARE the site to name me as the lady in this picture, and I can bet my whole life that they can’t.
If we want this stupidity to end we need to stop being so gullible. To my REAL fans, friends and family thanks for the support through this to everyone else, if you didn’t like me then, nothing is going to make you like me now and that’s who the world goes. Still Like Air I RISE!!!!!!!! #missforson”
