Ghanaian Twitter influencer and critic, Bongo Ideas, has sparked controversy online after his comments on the marriage of Ghanaian actor Harold Amenyah. Bongo Ideas, known for his bold and sometimes controversial statements, tweeted about Harold Amenyah’s wife, suggesting that she did not match up to the actor’s good looks.
“I expected the handsome Harold Amenyah to have better taste than this. Maybe she’s rich. Because, even with the makeup, her looks do not match up with his in the least. Offside. Maybe this is another classic case of “love is blind” because, in terms of aesthetics, he made a poor choice. His crushes must be disappointed right now,” Bongo Ideas tweeted.
The comments have since caused a stir on social media, with many users condemning Bongo Ideas for his derogatory and offensive remarks. Some have accused him of body-shaming and promoting negative beauty standards, while others have called for him to apologize for his remarks.
Harold Amenyah, who has not publicly responded to Bongo Ideas’ comments, has been praised by some for choosing his partner based on more than just physical appearance.
“Love is more than just looks, and I think it’s great that Harold Amenyah chose a partner based on who they are as a person, not just their appearance,” said one Twitter user.
Others have criticized Bongo Ideas for trying to bring down another Ghanaian celebrity and questioned his motives behind the comments.
“Who is Bongo Ideas to judge someone else’s choice of partner? It’s not his business, and he should focus on promoting positivity instead of tearing others down,” said another Twitter user.
The controversy surrounding Bongo Ideas’ comments highlights the importance of promoting positive body image and accepting people for who they are, regardless of their physical appearance. It also serves as a reminder that celebrities, like anyone else, deserve respect and privacy in their personal lives.
