ACTRESS Victoria Lebene is no stranger to controversy. In her relatively young career, she has endured her fair share of them: from her relationship with veteran actor Kofi Adjorlolo to her bikini pictures and fake honeymoon pictures.
And while she may be over these scandals, the one thing that Victoria has learnt about it all is that Ghanaians are quick to judge should you falter in any way.
The young lady, who recently got married to Peace FM’s Eugene Osafo-Nkansah in a ceremony that attracted all the big stars one can think of said in an interview with Graphic Showbiz that, “Ghanaians talk without knowing the real truth. We judge based on what we see on social media, which is so wrong.
“For instance when it comes to my bikini pictures which a lot of people made a fuss about, I saw nothing wrong with them because I have always been a model. So why should people bring such pictures up when I was getting married?” she queried.
After Victoria and Eugene got married, broadcaster Abeiku Santana dropped a bombshell that the actress’ relationship with Kofi Adjorlolo was a publicity stunt he (Santana) engineered to bring her into the limelight.
However, when Graphic Showbiz quizzed her about the Kofi Adjorlolo debacle, Victoria was not ready to go into details. She only said if Ghanaians knew her well, they would not have made noise about it.
“My husband knew me inside out and that was all I cared about and not what Ghanaians were saying. I think it is about time Ghanaians understood showbiz stuff, there is a private life and the showbiz stuff, and that is what I want Ghanaians to understand. I only made Ghanaians aware of my showbiz stuff,” she said.
Asked whether she was bothered by all the things that had been said about her, Victoria Lebene said she was not and chose to focus on the positive things.
“I don’t worry myself with negative things but the positives ones. Once I know I am clean, I don’t care whatever anyone says about me. Whatever you do, Ghanaians will talk but when you know what you are doing is right why do you worry about what someone says,” she said.
Although she is not against celebs or couples posting their marital issues on social media and asking for help, Victoria said she would never do such a thing.
“Why will I put my marital stuff on social media? How will anyone help me on social media concerning my marital issues? You will just be mocked and gossiped about without getting the solution to whatever you need.
“There is no way I will do such a thing. Rather if I need to share my opinion on something related to showbiz, I will gladly do that,” she said.
She has featured in movies such as My Ramadan, Babani and Jackie Goes To School. Victoria said her husband would not have any problem with her if she kisses in movies, but she would not even do it.
“I know my husband will not have any problem with me kissing in movies but I am willing to take up challenging roles than to kiss. The romance scenes are so common in our movies. I want more challenging roles instead of just kissing in movies,” she said.
