Backlash over my unclad picture didn’t affect me – Gifty
Big brother Nigeria 2017 contestant, Gifty Powers, apparently subscribes to the notion that there is no such thing as bad publicity. So long as she is talked about in the media, then it’s fine by her.
The fair-skinned beauty got tongues wagging when she recently uploaded a semi-unclad picture of herself on her Instagram page. In the picture, she only hung a towel on her shoulder, leaving the rest of her body to the imagination.
Explaining that she was unaffected by the reactions generated by the picture, she told Sunday Scoop, “The question is and will always remain, ‘did you see my face in the picture?’ I don’t blame some people when they condemn others because poverty is a disease. When a person thinks about the bills he or she has to pay to survive, and they’re not getting what they expected, then frustration sets in from different angles. That’s when you see distribution of madness everywhere. Everyone is sharing their wonderful piece of ‘holier than thou’ messages, yet what they condemn is everywhere on their own page. When I read the so-called backlash, I just take a sip of orange juice and laugh out so hard. Tell me, why should I be bothered? Jesus was the most talked about person, even before his birth; yet he is still special, so I don’t need to bother myself about what people are saying.”
