Can’t we all just get along? Ghanaian actresses Gloria Sarfo and Yvonne Nelson have found themselves in a social media feud. It all started when Yvonne Nelson labelled some of her fellow actors as ‘haters and jealous’ for refusing to support her new Netflix streaming deal.
Yvonne Nelson called out Gloria Sarfo and claimed that she has been hating on her for a long time.
Well Gloria Sarfo has decided to respond to Yvonne Nelson’s claims. In a lengthy Instagram post, Sarfo revealed that she has ‘never hated on anybody in her life’ and that eventhough she has been ‘neglected, denied, ridiculed and underated’ in her career she ‘still gets roles from proper, genuine and discerning producers who believe in the abilities of a pure talent’
The AMVCA award winner went on to commend her Nigerian colleagues and friends saying: “they appreciate even the little things that you do for them. Unlike here in my beloved country, even a simple like, comment or support is termed as being a hypocrite. “
Read Gloria Sarfo’s entire reply below:
“Now let me SET the RECORDS STRAIGHT
First of all, I have NEVER HATED on anybody in my life, NOT EVEN my WORST ENEMY, or even THOSE WHO HURT, AND SPITE me IN MY FACE, NEVER! (That’s why I mostly pity those who think I would have issues with them, simply because of how they feel and act towards me)
HATE IS A VERY STRONG WORD, and ofcourse one of the POWERFUL TOOLS that contributes to FAILURE in life. So I always carefully try to AVOID the word HATE in my dictionary.
I would rather use that time to HATE on my fellow human being, to BETTER my PRECIOUS life
Secondly, I AM NOT IN COMPETITION with anybody, regardless who you are.
The ONLY PERSON I’M IN COMPETITION with is MY OLD SELF!!
I GROW through what I GO THROUGH
Thirdly, even though I’ve been NEGLECTED, DENIED, UNDERRATED, RIDICULED and CALLED NAMES, despite the fact that I’m good at what I do, I still get roles from PROPER, GENUINE and DISCERNING producers who believes in the abilities of a PURE TALENT and chooses PROFFESIONALISM over FAMILIARITY
So I dont WAIT for them, but rather I try to correct my mistakes, right my wrongs, research about my job, work hard, persevere, maintain a clean heart and mind, pray and earn it
Now, I HAVE NEVER BEEN A HYPOCRITE, not even in my HARDEST MOMENTS in life, NEVER!!!!
Just that my leniency and kindness are mostly taken for my weaknesses and for granted.
But you see, I’ve come to realize that, they’re all lessons and stages in life
So I usually ignore those unfortunate moments
That’s why I love my Nigerian friends and colleagues, cos they appreciate even the LITTLE THINGS that you do for them Unlike here in my beloved country, even a simple like, comment or support is termed as being a HYPOCRITE or nhwehw Eanimuu
Lastly, I HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN that HUMILITY IS ONE OF THE KEYS TO SUCCESS, regardless Its helped a lot of SUCCESSFUL people in the world, and sincerely, helped me too, and I hope that others will learn from it
And oh, I just admire the GOD FACTOR in my life, cos that’s the STRONGEST PILLAR that holds me
NEVER THINK ILL OF ANY MAN. NEVER UNDERESTIMATE ANY HUMAN BEING.
I REST MY CASE “
