The Ghanaian sultry media star, Efia Odo says that criticism on her personality doesn’t faze her at all, reports Ghanaguardian.
Odo, born Andrea Owusu has suffered a lot of trolls in the Ghanaian media landscape. She said staying positive and thick skin kept her going.
In an interview with Citi tv, the Kwese presenter addressed her views on the issue saying:
“I am a positive person and I don’t allow anything negative to come around me so the backlash I get on social media I don’t see it. I have turned a blind eye to it. It didn’t just happen it has taken some time, I had to get used to it and know myself. When you know yourself as an individual there is nothing an outsider could say that could even touch you.
“Anything negative is not me and what your thoughts of me are has nothing to do with me, it is who you are and how you think.I have come to understand who I am my values and my qualities. It’s the job of the people who write our stories to highlight the positive things we do. We need to change the stories being written about the people in the industry”
Efia was born in Ghana but left for the United States at the age of five until her returned to the country a couple of years ago to pursue her passion for acting.
