Two popular actresses Yvonne Okoro and Lydia Forson are said to have
declined to feature in a movie because Rosemond Brown would be starring
in the movie too.
Information reaching YEN.com.gh has it that two of Ghana’s top
actresses, Yvonne Okoro and Lydia Forson, have rejected a new movie role
because of Rosemond Brown.
The two initially had accepted the scripts to act, however, upon
discovering that Brown was part of the cast, decided to opt out.
The producer of the movie titled Away Bus, Kofi Asamoah, was said to
have hidden Brown’s identity, but when he later disclosed it to the
team, Lydia Forson and Okoro said they were no longer interested.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on a popular Instagram page,
Thosecalledcelebs, Lydia said her brand was too sophisticated to act
with the likes of Brown, also called Akuapem Poloo.
Okoro did not state her reason though, but she was reported to have screamed “hell no!”, and backed off.
Some social media users who commented on the issue have expressed disappointment in the two actresses.
Diana, for instance, wondered if Brown was not a human being too:
diana_darko: “Omg this so bad of them if that’s the main reason ???like
how on earth?? Is akuapem poloo not a human ?? Jezzz one reason y the
industry will forever be the same.”
Akuapem Poloo has been in the news mostly for the wrong and controversial reasons.
She has been tagged as uncouth, desperate for fame, which makes her behave in certain ways not expected of her.
She had even gone ahead to take off her attire in public all because she wanted to trend in the news.
It could be because of this and other reasons that Yvonne Okoro and
Lydia Forson have refused to act with her. Okoro was in the news
recently for rejecting a marriage proposal from a man who proposed to
her at 1 a.m.
