Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson is not happy after her name was dragged and hooked up with controversial Nollywood actor and politician Desmond Elliot on social media few hours after he submitted a petition to the parliament in Lagos State House of Assembly to regulate social media and hate speech.
The handsome actor caused a huge stir last week when he blasted Nigerian youths for being used as a puppet by Nigerian celebrities to start the needless EndSars protest which has caused many lives, destroyed many properties and caused havoc in the country.
It is not surprising that Lydia Forson obviously won’t keep quiet for her enviable brand to be dragged in the mud on social media after her name popped up in Desmond Elliot’s goof last week. The lawmaker representing Surulere constituency in his submission on the plenary session held by the Lagos state House of Assembly blasted Nigerian youths for being lazy which is why they found time for this EndSars protest which has continued for weeks unabated.
Desmond Elliot also gave Nigerian celebrities who started the ‘cold war’ in the first place a fair share of the blame. The lawmaker further called for more stiffer regulations to safeguard the way the youths use social media and ultimately asking the government to ban it outright.
According to him, the youth have a constitutional means to change government and it is called their ‘PVC’. A portion of his message reads; “Mr. Speaker, we need to address certain things. The Nigerian youth, the social media, the social influencers, all of these are making the narrative that we are seeing today, except we are joking with ourselves. Social media is good but it has Negative impacts.”
These words from the lawmaker have since been met with strong criticisms as Nigerian youth are not happy with him stating that he is among those that are looting Nigerian treasury. In furtherance to that, some Nigerians started digging up his dirty secrets in his closet to be used as propaganda against him. As a result of this, it was rumored that Desmond Elliot had been cheating on his wife.
One of such stories in that regard has to do with rumours that Desmond Elliot has been sleeping with Ghanaian actress, Lydia Forson. Upon sighting the frivolous rumours, Lydia Forson has come out to deny the report by saying; “So really, all it takes is for people to create fake accounts, make up a story and bloggers will carry it just like that?
And you people will be in my inbox and tell me to calm down, keep quiet, let it go and not waste my energy. Ok, I have heard you all, but the truth still remains, I have nothing to do with Desmond Elliot. Please stop destroying my name and the name of the innocent man, be warned.
