Adom Fm news editor Samuel Dowuona, mostly known for being a member of the Alabaster Box gospel singing group, has lobbed a bunch of grenades at actress Lydia Forson for describing Ghanaian journalists as ‘stupid’ for discussing the assertion that a woman cooking for the husband is a slave.
In a riposte on Facebook, Dowuona described Forson as a ‘twerp’ who opened her foul mouth to tell journalists not to criticize the Pepper Dem gang after using that same mouth to call for journalists to discuss the issues being raised by them.
“What a twerp you are, using one corner of your foul mouth to tell us to allow these confused female species calling themselves feminist to express their opinion IN THE MEDIA FREELY, and then stupidly use the other corner of the same mouth to tell others they cannot express their opinion about an opinion that affects our socio-cultural fabric as a people?” he angrily noted.
Forson caused a storm Wednesday when she recorded a Facebook Live video and attacked Ghanaians in general and journalists in particular for taking time to discuss ‘cooking’ as raised by the pepper dem when there was so much more issues plaguing the nation.
“Do you see how stupid we seem?” A nonplussed Lydia said in the video.
“Do we see how unserious we are that seasoned journalists, radio presenters and proclaimed intellectuals are spending all their time and energy talking about someone trying to take away their rights? Are you stupid? Is food going to build roads, put clothes on your back or change the power crises? I am shocked that we have come to a standstill because of cooking. The fact that we reduced this discussion to food shows how far gone we are’’.
However, Dowuona was not having her foul mouth and struck back with his own.

Xexe, I just watched a 17 minute video by Lydia Forson insulting us for taking on the PEPPER DEM MINISTRIES. I have never commented on her post before, but since she chose to call journalists stupid and dumb for taking on the group, I have a direct response for her:
Lydia Forson, you are even more stupid and dumb that you found time as a supposed actress to do a 17 minute video talking about people who are talking about cooking. Would your stupid 17 minute video about people talking about cooking build roads, stop the power crisis (if indeed we still have one as of now; unless you are an airhead pretender).
What a twerp you are, using one corner of your foul mouth to tell us to allow these confused female species calling themselves feminist to express their opinion IN THE MEDIA FREELY, and then stupidly use the other corner of the same mouth to tell others they cannot express their opinion about an opinion that affects our socio-cultural fabric as a people? You must be a real tramp to think development is all about the hardware and not the software.
And indeed, only blockheads like you fail to realise that our society has a huge number or vulnerable people who can fall for this stupid comment if the enlightened ones don’t speak up boldly and strongly. So you are free to take a stance on the matter and suggest what you want. But only fools think they can make 17 minute highly-opinionated videos to rubbish other people’s opinions. What an irony. So sad you were not smart enough to realise your folly and hypocrisy within those 17 minutes. At least there should have been a moment; a split second within that period when you come to your senses and snap out of the dilusion. But as usual, you are the Lydia Forson. I cant blame you. Very difficult being you.
