Kumawood actress, Christiana Awuni has said that she feels ashamed for her colleagues who have joined the campaign of the Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Lydia Alhassan.

She stated that after the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration supposedly insulted creative persons, she didn’t expect her colleagues to campaign for the ruling party.

while campaigning for Lydia Alhassan, the Minister took a swipe at actor John Dumelo indicating that Parliament is a place for serious business and not for movie actors.

She said “parliament is for serious minded people and not people who have done some movies and think they are popular”.

She continued that “The place is not for those who think they can heal the sick. No! No! No! No! No! Do not let that happen. It is a serious place,” the MP for Anyaa-Sowutuom said, adding: “If you mistakenly vote for John Dumelo instead of Lydia Alhassan, you’ll always be watching movies at the movie theatre.”

In response, the actress said that even though the minister was just “expressing her opinion”, “it’s a bit painful because it means they don’t respect us, they don’t take actors and actresses for anything, we don’t matter to them that’s why they keep repeating those comments but I would plead with them to stop saying those things because they are the same people who use artistes to campaign in times of election.”

So, why do you come looking for us to boost your campaign when you don’t respect us? What do you take us for? You don’t respect us, you deem us unworthy of being in parliament yet you want us to be the ones to campaign for your election. She spoke badly,” Christiana Awuni said on Accra FM.

She also commented on the viral photos of Kalybos, Bismarck The Joke, Prince David Osei, Bibi Bright, Jessica Williams, and gospel musician Cwesi Oteng who are campaigning for Lydia Alhassan.

I feel ashamed for all the stars who posed with the MP to campaign for her after her colleague insulted us”, the actress stated.
