Actor and TV hostess Nana Ama Mcbrown has lamented about how the constant criticism she faces from Ghanaians hinders her from living a normal life.
McBrown, who recently got a body lift surgery, said that one of her biggest wishes is to wear a bikini and go to the beach to have fun with her loved ones, but she fears that as soon as she wears anything that shows off her skin, Ghanaians will descend on her.
“As a famous person, everything you do is scrutinized so you can’t even be yourself….You have to deny yourself a lot of pleasure because of the mean comments from Ghanaians. You can’t go to certain places, you can’t wear certain clothes because some people will bash you for not being the role model they expect you to be. You are forced to deny yourself a lot of pleasure to avoid getting criticized.”
McBrown acknowledged that as a celebrity many parts of her life are out in the open for the public to digest, however, she gets to choose how she reacts to them, which comments she lets in and the ones she discards.
“I can’t control what people say about me, but I can control how I react to it,” she said. “I choose to focus on the positive comments and ignore the negative ones.“
