After she received stiff public condemnation for the video where some called her a sexual deviant, while others suggested that she may have developed mental problems, Rashida recorded yet another dis video.

Now in an interview days after her release from jail, Rashida has given a tearful apology to Ghanaians and stated her reasons for recording such an explicit video.
"I met a white guy on Facebook a few years ago, he promised to marry me so he asked for my nude video and I did that video for him," she said.
According to her, video was shot three years ago, and was released by someone other than herself.
"I am sorry, it wasn’t my intention to release a naked video of myself on social media, like I said earlier, I am yet to know who is behind it”, she said tearfully.
