But I feel it should be controlled because people will sit behind a computer and say so many derogatory words that can make one devastated…they boo people and all. There have been times people have committed suicide due to such remarks. Once it is controlled, it can be used for the greater good of mankind”, she told Pulse.com.gh while sharing her lifestyle, tips, and experiences.

“There’s never a moment when I can even walk down the street without being interrupted even if I’m with family. It’s okay, I’m not complaining, but that for me is a big challenge because we need to find a balance as celebrities and as fans so we don't step on each other’s toes”, she said in an elated manner.
