Former Big Brother Nigeria contestant, Gifty Powers, is not new to controversies. The actress has been seen many times putting up nude photos of herself on social media and also lending her voice on trending issues on the internet.
But in a new interview with Sunday Scoop, Gifty Powers mentioned that the she deliberately create these controversies as she is not bothered anymore about what people say about her.
She told Sunday Scoop:
“I created controversy. I turn it on and off whenever I please. As a public figure, one eventually gets used to people saying all sorts. I am totally at peace. I love all my fans and that’s what counts. For the naysayers, thanks for hating me; keep the job hot. I play my roles. Besides, no one is good on this planet. If they see me as a bad girl, then I am the worst girl.”
On whether she feels the reaction of people to the picture was hypocritical, she said:
“Probably. It’s normal for celebrities to attract both lovers and haters. If an artistic image of me attracts more views and for that reason, some folks are hating on it, then let them have all the fun hating. They should continue if it feeds them in some way.
In my professional opinion, the artistic image of me was merely suggestive and not provocative; there is nothing indecent about it. It’s art in an idealistic form. I could even decide to sell the picture.”
