Beverly Afaglo, a Ghanaian actress and entrepreneur, has stated unequivocally that what she said in her viral ‘I am not broke’ video is the gospel truth.
The actress stands firm in her words, claiming she is a landlady, her father was wealthy, and she is not poor.
Beverly Afaglo, a guest on United Showbiz, reiterated her position on her viral video and yet explained the circumstances leading up to her uproar.
Although she did not lie in the video, the actress claimed that such bravado was out of character for her.
She explained that she had to take such drastic measures because her marriage was under attack.
“I will not retract this statement anytime, any day because I didn’t lie. So Ghanaians twisting this story saddens me. First and foremost, they didn’t even start the reason why I did this video. My marriage was on the attack. I went to a radio show, I can’t remember who, and the host asked me that nowadays I frequent London a lot. And rumors have it that I may have a boyfriend or lover there who pays for my ticket.”
Afaglo posted the following on her Instagram account, which has since been removed.
“I thought it was a joke. The next thing, it has been published on tabloids and everywhere. And I said, what kind of joke is this? How much is a ticket to London? They talk as if I am unemployed or I can’t afford a plane ticket. Why should a man sponsor me before I can travel? So I got angry, and I wanted to spell it out.”
Beverly cited examples of times when she had the opportunity to flaunt herself on media platforms, but she never took it seriously. Her 18-year marriage was on the line in this case.
And she is prepared to go to any length to ensure its tranquillity and security.
“I have been driving since I was 23. I’ve never shown my car. I have never shown my house. I have never worn something which was given to me as an influencer for promotion. I am not that type. So for me to even spell things out like that should tell you where I was coming from. You were attacking my marriage, and I was trying to tell you that I work hard.”
Beverly Afaglo, who appeared in the viral video, insisted that everything she said was true.
“I won’t retract that. I won’t change anything. If I said my father was rich, yes, he was rich. I never lied about that. My father has thirty children. So if I say he had properties and thirty people share them, how much would I even get? And if I say I am a landlady, I didn’t lie. Even if I own a single room and take rent from it, am I not a landlady? So I didn’t lie about anything.”
