Actress Akuapem Poloo has revealed a story of how Lydia Forson treated her like she’s not even a human being at the first time they met.
According to Poloo, she was left devastated after Lydia’s treatment, and her story, if true, paints the actress in a really bad light especially considering her endless advocacy online for gender equality.
Akuapem Poloo in an interview on Kantanka TV narrated how Lydia treated her like dirt at an awards show.
According to her, she was supposed to present an award but Lydia Forson upon hearing that said she will not deliver an award herself if Akuapem Poloo was going to be on the same stage as her.
True to her word, Lydia left because apparently Akuapem Poloo is too beneath her to share a stage with.
The incident appears to have left a deep mark on Poloo who was approaching tears as she narrated it.
She said she used to idolize Lydia so she couldn’t fathom why Lydia would treat her that way.
Assuming Poloo isn’t lying, that was a horrible move from Lydia. You can’t always shout for female empowerment but then treat a fellow lady trying to make it in the industry in such a cruel manner.
If a so-called gender advocate can treat ladies this way then she can’t be surprised when others treat ladies the same way.
Poloo said the mistreatment didn’t end there, alleging that Lydia Forson on other occasions has turned down scripts so that she doesn’t have to work with half human being Akuapem Poloo.
