Gospel musician, Ama Boahemaa has threatened to sue anyone who accuse her of bleaching her skin.
She has also announced plans to take legal action against a journalist for allegedly distorting her image in order to put her in a bad light.
Social media was agog over the weekend when pictures emerged of a very fair looking Ama Boahemaa, she of the “Awurade wo ba 33ko” and “Bue kwan ma me”, looking very different from the black lady of the hit songs days.
In an interview with Nkosuohene of TopAfric Radio, Ms Boahemaa claimed her dramatic change in complexion was due to her love for milk. She also admits to ‘toning’ her skin.
Analysts and cosmetologists have however accused her of bleaching her skin to an almost white state for reasons best known to her.
Some media websites and blogs have posted ‘before-and-after’ photos of the gospel singer to prove she is bleaching.
While admitting that the person in the pictures is indeed the renowned Ama Boahemaa, she insists her facial expression has been touched up.
“I am not bleaching. I won’t deny the fact that the picture is mine but it does not look like me because the facial expression is different. I know that the person who took it has changed me totally. My lips have also changed.
“I don’t know why I should bleach. In fact I will sue the person if the picture is not removed from social media” she said on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem Morning show Tuesday.
Ama Boahemaa urged her fans not to be disappointed by the actions of her ‘detractors.’
