Fast rising Ghanaian actress-Fella Makafui of YOLO TV Series fame has told GhanaCelebrities.Com that she’s livid and totally disappointed in Ghanaian rapper-Tinny, for betraying and exploiting their friendship for his unascertained selfish gains.
Makafui, 20, started as a model at a young age of 17 without any sense of direction or supervision—and it’s during these moments that she met Tinny who later became her friend, she told GhanaCelebrities.Com.
During this same period, she jumped into a raunchy music video of Tinny, of course, persuaded by the rapper. And soon after the shooting of the video, she scored a role in the hit TV series-YOLO and started shaping her brand and image as an actress.
With YOLO itself themed on advising the young against social vices, Makafui realised the video she shot for Tinny’s Baddest Girl song in 2015 contradicted not just her role but the sort of image she was carving for herself. And as such held series of conversations with Tinny, out of which the rapper agreed to not release the music video—promising there will be a reshoot, the actress said.
However, 2 years down the line and with an agreement to reshoot the video in place, Tinny has suddenly gone ahead to release the raunchy video in which Makafui goes topless in a scene.
“I see this as a total disrespect to what I stand for today, my brand and also a betrayal and exploitation of our friendship,” Fella Makafui told GhanaCelebrities.Com’s Editor, Chris-Vincent Agyapong Febiri last night.
She added that; “I was young, I didn’t know what I was really getting into and all that. As a friend, when things picked up for me, he seemed happy and even said it would be best to reshoot that video, not just for my sake but also for a lot of technical things that went wrong with the visuals and sound.”
Though Makafui considers Tinny’s actions as an absolute assault on her rising brand and a betrayal, the rapper has a lame excuse—claiming, the music video which he has been promoting on his own Instagram page was leaked.
GhanaCelebrities.Com has obtained audio and Whatsapp conversations between Tinny and Makafui, and also between the former and Makafui’s sister—all confirming that there was some sort of agreement that the music video does not sit well with Makafui’s brand and therefore wouldn’t be released.
