Popular actress Lydia Forson seems to have replied Deputy Minister of Tourism Dzifa Gomashie on her recent facebook post directed at actress Nikki Samonas for exposing part of her boobs at the last 4syte Music Video.

Nikki proudly explained her dressing, saying: This is showbiz. In showbiz things like this are welcome. I am in showbiz so I dont see anything wrong with what I wore.

But the Minister took to her facebook page to lambast Nikki Samonas, saying: You can tell who had grooming and cared about their image and what they stood for. There are also some who were edgier than most.

Dont, out of ignorance, paint everyone in show business as you would Rihanna, who by the way, I am not a fan of. If you think because you are in show business you have a license to walk around with your boobies popping out of your dress and short enough not to make us curious, that is your understanding.

The Minister continued: It is not the case that because you are in show business you can wear anything without considering the cultural setting. Yes by all means express yourself in thought and indeed. But, do not forget your freedom and rights are not created in a vacuumand by the way, how do you expect us to know when you are acting and when you are not acting, when every space for you is a stage?

On Thursday, Lydia Forson also made a post on facebook with the title Make Up Your Mind. Its content looked like she was replying the minister.

She however didnt mention anybodys name but said she apologised to anyone who may find her post offensive.

Below is what Lydia Forson said:

MAKE UP YOUR MIND!!

It seems like whenever were confronted with a situation we dont like or feel its foreign to us or doesnt measure up to our standards we use the statement, Its against our culture.

Yet in a similar situation when its more favourable and in line with our standards and its something we approve we use, The world is a global village and things have changed.

Heres my thing, just make up your damn mind already!

Are we going strictly by culture or are we going to go the modernisation route.

Someone decides to celebrate Halloween/ Thanksgiving and suddenly its not our culture.

Meanwhile we can argue that Christianity and most other religions were acquired through colonisation and was never a part of our culture.

Whats it going to be?

Now, about the errr the err ok they mentioned it on day time radio so Im sure I can also say it hereabout the boobs.

Are we going to show it or nah?

On one hand, we say its not our culture and ladies are supposed to be covered up. On the other hand, Im watching tv and I see uncensored breast all over my screen celebrating the RICH DIPO culture.

So whats it gonna be Biko? Send us the memo because all of this is confusing.

Heres where the problem is;

People are constantly measuring others by their own religious, moral or cultural standards.

My standards arent your own, and neither should yours be mine.

If someones views, lifestyles and beliefs arent causing harm to anyone why should there be a problem?

If youre worried about your children and how peoples choices are not setting good examples for them then your problem should be directed towards your parenting.

Society shouldnt be raising your children anyway, you should. All society does is to come in and give their own ideas on how things should be done. And if you raise your child right he/she can always make the right decision.

It really boils down to having respect for one another. Respecting that all though I have a right to live a certain way, that right comes with a responsibility to take into consideration how that may affect others. And finding a common ground.

So, you getting High or nah?

And I apologise to anyone who may find this post offensive, from my heart I do. However as always if it does, well then, Im talking to you.
