Yesterday, actress Kafui Danku picked up a fight with movie-maker Kafui Danku, and just like everyone, we were caught surprised.
Leila is not someone you can attack and expect to be left alone. She would not waste a minute to serve you with an overdose of your own medicine.
Kafui took a swipe at Leila for telling others that her (Kafui’s) husband is broke after she had asked her to talk to her husband to make a donation for a little girl who had to undergo an operation.
According to Leila, none of what Kafui said about her is true, insisting that it is because of some of these reasons why she left the Ghana Movie Industry.
Parts of her post reads;
“Welp. This is embarrassing. I might need to burn my Ghana passport after this because it is too much.
“I want to apologize to every respectable person on this my Facebook page. I wish I could insulate you and myself from this. it so embarrassing to say the least. But, since it already headlines in Ghana, it’s best I soil myself and redeem my image before you.
“There is a young actress in Ghana who I have always liked because we belong to the same tribe. In the past couple of months, I have been mentoring her and she has also gone above and beyond to support my cause to raise funds for Baby Doris.”
Read the full post below;
“Few weeks, ago, we were told Doris required another chemo round and we need 5,000 dollars. I was at the end of my rope with people to call for money. I had exhausted my own personal funds in the middle of a pandemic.
“I called Confidence Haugen and begged her to ask her husband to donate, big. He did.
“I reached out to most of you here to beg, literally beg for money. Many of you did.
“I called Ama K and gave my movie library to Dominion TV in exchange for 1000 dollars. I gave a list of names to Ama and asked her to hustle those folks for funds since I didn’t have a direct link except to one person who I was banking on as last resort.
“I called Kafui Danku and said to her: I have a friend who shares the same circle of friends with your husband, do you think your husband would be willing to share the fundraiser among his colleagues to raise the 5000? Her response in short was she would ask him.
“Two days later, my back up source graciously gave us the money and I sent Kafui a message and I quote “Norvi, we raised the 5k. So please don’t bother our husband”
“Apparently, someone had told someone, I had told them that Kafui’s husband is broke and doesn’t have money. Me, at my old age, will still be engaging in he said she said. No problem.
“I called Ama K and I called Confidence Haugen asking them, guys, did I tell you guys that I asked Kafui to ask her husband to raise funds? they both said no. We don’t remember you telling us that.
“I literally checked my phone log to see who I might have said that to.
“I honestly do not remember. Kafui is vehemently protecting her source. Which is all well and good. But, I am tired of the character assassination. One of the reasons I walked out of the Ghana film industry has been due to LIES. Fabricated stories. Things you’ve not said or done, you are accused of doing. I asked Kafui herself to repeat to me stuff she’s heard about me so I defend or accept. She told me some and I opened up to what was the truth or what triggered whatever. I ask that question of a lot of people. What have you heard about me?
“I have very few friends I discuss issues within Ghana. Zoree, Confidence, Ama K, Akofa Djankui, Ludwig, Maame, and Tina. Maame (previously) and Tina work closely with me. They know everything about me because they keep some of my property for insurance and my mother calls them if she doesn’t hear from me. Outside of these people, whomever I may have told that Kafui Danku’s husband is broke, please remind me. If I did I will issue a public apology to Kafui and her husband. I am very careful around Ghanaians because,in 2012, I had a very nasty experience when someone who was supposed to be my manager was gathering blackmail information on me.I am not going to sit here and say I do not engage in salacious conversation. neither can anyone else. BUT, I can beat my chest and say I do not have any conversation with anyone that does not involve something that has to do directly with me.”
