Actress turned politician, and parliamentary aspirant for the Tema Central constituency, Ebi Bright has refuted all claims and rumors that there are nude photos of her in circulation, as her moral legitimacy for a political position has been questioned by a section of the public.
The doubts by the public stem from the photos of the actress in a bikini on the internet and this has made some public opinions question whether she has a chance at winning the political seat, she is vying for.
In an interview on Class FM on Monday, Ebi Bright emphatically stated that she had no such photos on the internet.
"I would like to make a little correction because I think that the more we say the wrong things, the more the perception persists. I do not have nude photos of myself in public circulation. I have photos of myself in swimming costume and these were taken within the context of a beach setting or a pool setting and these are normal attire for those locations. So, I just like to ask Ghanaians to be more critical about the general ways that we address things,” she said. .
She further stated, "I’m not going to wear a swimming costume here (in the studio), to the market place, or on the street. Neither am I going to wear my kaba or dress which I would often wear into the pool or into the sea. So, I ask people to be very critical, and besides if you are looking for me in my beach wear, I’m sure if you follow me to the beach you will get another shot of me, so I’m not going to promise Ghanaians that I will never wear a swimming costume again. They should get used to the fact that we have to be real."
Ebi Bright is currently contesting the seat of the NPP Tema Central candidate Kofi Brako, as the election period approaches.
