Ghanaian celebrities seem to have a problem with the media and they are not hiding their frustrations, with ace actress Nadia Buari being the latest to join the complaints wagon. The beautiful actress, over the weekend, poured out her heart on how she feels about journalists and how they handle her stories when NEWS-ONE attempted to speak with her concerning her latest movie ‘Heroes & Zeroes’.
“You are probably going to twist whatever I’m going to say. Journalists are always waiting for one bad news to sell their papers.Journalists are not willing to tell the truth. They are only willing to sell their papers.” The actress however failed to point out a particular instance when she was misquoted or her interview was twisted.
Rather, she said she would not go into details but claimed there instances where a single sentence or comment from her was blown out of proportion. Actor Majid Michel recently expressed similar frustrations when he met Nigerian journalists during the 2012 AMMAs.
The Nigerian media had reported that American actor Morris Chestnut had passed derogatory comments about the Eko Hotel in Lagos and Majid attempted defending his colleague actor.
“Journalists are always writing stuff, we can’t stop them. Keep writing until the day you die. Write what you want, make your money; bring twenty percent to us if you make the money.
Nothing is wrong here, this is a wonderful hotel. I don’t know what they are writing about the hotel. They are always writing fake stories, fiction, negative stuff, I don’t know why but be careful,” Majid warned.
Nadia, in her interview with NEWS-ONE, denied media reports that she was taking acting lessons in the United States of America to pave way for her to get into Hollywood. She said it was not true and if such a thing was happening, she wouldn’t hesitate to let her teeming fans know about it. “I don’t know where they got the story from,” Nadia noted.
According to the beautiful actress who graduated from the University of Ghana with a degree in Fine Arts, she studied a similar course while in the university. Therefore even if she would be studying in Hollywood, it would not be acting as circulated by a section of the media.
