When Yvonne Nelson started the #DumsorMustStop campaign, GhanaCelebrities.Com and almost every Ghanaian on social media supported her. We wrote dozens of articles and gave the campaign all the needed social media publicity.
Behind the veil, there were serious conversations going on—and personally, I spoke to about 6 top Ghanaian actresses who said Yvonne Nelson was just looking for attention to promote her soon to premiere movie. And that, she was just using the #DumsorMustStop campaign to gain more followers on social media as well as offline so that she would ride on the “true need of the people” to launch her movie promo.
As much as I am not a big fan of Yvonne Nelson, I defended such arguments and tagged them as mere speculations. But today, I feel ashamed because Yvonne Nelson is doing exactly what these actresses highlighted and said she would do.
The actress took to twitter a few hours ago to promote her soon to be premiered movie—and had the audacity to use the hash tag #DumsorMustStop in that tweet.
What this means is that, though her movie has nothing to do with the DumsorMustStop campaign, she is stealing or abusing the #DumsorMustStop hash tag for personal gains. It’s this same cunning act, dishonesty and opportunist conduct by our leaders which has fetched us this Dumsor.
Offline, this is the same as being given a State car for a state responsibility and then at night, you turn it into a taxi for your own financial gains.
It’s insulting to all of us who supported the campaign and made the hash tag popular for Yvonne Nelson to turn around and use it in such a dishonest way to promote her movie…
WTF! Girl, remove that tweet…Stop stealing from the public!
Dumsor is truly affecting Ghanaians and here you are abusing the campaign for personal gains?
