The Ghanama singer did nothing wrong, she was just performing but people went on to body shame her for the appearance of her dark inner thighs.

Was this “controversial” picture not for the photographer to apologise for?

“I would like to apologise to all my fans if only if you really dessaponted [sic] about this pictures [sic]… they [sic] were lot of beautiful pictures that a cameraman was gonna [sic] post but he choose to post this to promote his brand but forgetting the damage he is doing to my soul.”
