The Industry Is For Talent Not Long Legs – Ghanaian Actress, Nana Akua Addo Blasts Yvonne Nelson
A recent call by Ghanaian actress turned producer Yvonne Nelson for movie makers, actors and actresses to concentrate on giving life back to the dying movie industry than concentrate on ‘slaying’ on red carpets seemed not to have gone down well with some people.
One of such persons who felt the heat by the comments of Yvonne Nelson is self-styled slay queen Nana Akua Addo whose presence at almost every red carpet across the world (including the 2017 BET Awards) has been captured and beamed by the media. This has been so because she has over the times endeared herself to the hearts of many for her exotic fashion sense.
In a sharp rebuttal on Instagram, the slay queen who was missing at the just ended Golden Movie Awards Africa 2017 due to her studies in America advised Yvonne Nelson to “either reinvent and help the industry grow or become a Commentator” just as she is doing now.
According to Nana Akua Addo, red carpets are a part of an industry called fashion and the earlier it is accepted the better. She also stated the industry was for talents and not “long legs” since “long legs” could “get weak with time”.
Her reference to Yvonne Nelson as long legs seem somehow harsh since Yvonne Nelson has over the years announced how much she is in love with her long legs.
“RED CARPET is an industry called Fashion(SLAY) YES!!Either reinvent and help the industry grow or become a Commentator Technology is making video and content the future. The industry is for the TALENT. TALENT will keep you relevant in the industry long LEGS may get weak with time. CHANGE is here if you can’t embrace it,join them “if you can’t beat them !!!!! IF slaying is not Working for you , have you tried running with those long legs? It’s called reinvent either ways Ghana is winning My break time is up back to class…. #WomenInFilm
