Kwasi Aboagye and Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo have chastised Lydia Forson for what they described as an act of pride.

The host of Peace FM’s Entertainment Review and the regular panellist expressed their confusion about the comments the actress made about an unidentified man who supposedly sent for her number.

She uploaded a video clip to say that she would never honour an invitation from a man who sends another person to get her number instead of coming for himself.

"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. Don’t ever sit in your car and send someone to come for my number. Who do you think you are?” She said.

According to Kwasi Aboagye, he does not see anything wrong in the action.

He cannot understand why Lydia Forson would choose to make something out of nothing.

“How many people have done that to have triggered her decision to do makeup, apply lipstick and record a video?” he asked. “I’m sure if indeed this happened to her, she addressed the issue there and then so why the video? Is it that she wants us to know she is Lydia Forson and is not cheap? Lydia, what is your problem? I don’t really get it. Or you need attention? I think you need attention otherwise you’ll not do this video.”

Initially, Arnold Disagreed with his view that Lydia Forson is seeking attention on the basis that she is known to be very outspoken and opinionated.

He, however, questioned why Lydia Forson would do such a thing.

Essentially, what is she trying to say?” Asamoah-Baidoo wondered as he garnered more arsenals. “At the end of the day, what is the end result? Everyone and their personality. Some people lack confidence. Perhaps your status makes it difficult for the person to approach you. There is some sort of timidity and they’d want to go through someone but at the end of the day, what are we looking for? We’re looking at establishing an acquaintance, then to friendship and possibly to a relationship… So, it is the end results that matter.

“She spoke about respect, courtesy, class, decency… How is this disrespectful? How is this indecent? How do you record a video over this? You refused to honour people’s invitation in JSS and so what? What is this? Maybe she feels she wants to be approached; fair enough. But don’t make it seem as if it is disrespectful, it doesn’t show decency… Don’t come and disturb us. Do you know the number of people who went through this process and have subsequently been married for years?”

"For all you know, you have no idea why the person sent for your number. There could be a thousand and one reasons so don't sit in your car and claim status. You don't know the situation of the one who sent for your number. You have no freaking idea so you too, show courtesy; show respect," Arnold added.
