Popular Kumawood film producer, Socrate Safo,has chastised, Actress Lyda Forson over her assertion that it is disrespectful for men to send someone to come for her number.
In a now-deleted video from her Instagram page, the actress said “even when I was in JSS when a guy calls me, I’ll still not go to him because if you want to talk to someone, you walk to the person. That’s what respectful people do; that’s what decent people do, that’s what people with courtesy do”.
She continued that ” don’t ever sit in your car and send someone to come for my number. Who do you think you are?”
However, in reaction to Lydia Forson’s comment, Socrate Safo is saying the actress didn’t speak well because it’s not wrong for anyone to send someone for somebody’s number.
In his submission on Peace FM’s Entertainment Review, Saturday, the movie producer expounded that granted the said man wanted to lure her into a relationship, the decision to not approach her should not be interpreted as disrespectful. According to him, it rather shows how the said man reveres Lydia Forson.
Socrate Safo emphasized that he expected Lydia Forson to handle the issue in a mature manner than go berserk in her quest to prove a point.
“You don’t talk like someone who is not enlightened. You don’t talk like that in the public,” he scolded.
“There is a way a lady is expected to talk so people take notice and learn from you. This is unacceptable. It’s never disrespectful for someone to send for you or for your number. On the contrary, it is a respectful approach.”
