Veteran Ghanaian actress Belinda Naa Ode Oku aka Adwoa Smart has debunked news that, she once upon a time threw her panties on former president Jerry John Rawlings whiles on stage performing.
Somewhere 1998 and 2000, the veteran actress was detained after her performance on aspect of throwing what many termed as her panties on the former president at the State Banquet hall.
Maame Dokono was assigned as one of the performers at the function and she didn’t disappoint. She attended the program with some dancers which Adwoa Smart was part to add spice to the already reigning show.
Dancing in front of the former President, Adjoa Smart started removing her outfits and flipped one towards Rawlings while still dancing. The whole room was yeeeeeeee.
However reacting to this in an interview with Halifax Ansah-Addo on the ‘Best Entertainment Show’, Adwoa Smart said the accusation which was placed on her personality then was false.
According to her, Papa Jay even knew it was not her panties which was thrown on him.
”It was not true, Papa Jay himself knows I can’t throw my panties on him. I use to wear a lot of things during my show performance, so I throw more of it to the crowd for my fans. It was a sign of appreciation moreover what feel on Papa Jay was my shirt and not pant as it was speculated.
”It was not possible to see my pant removed on the stage of performance and see, the man himself was cool but the crowd and certain aspect of the media took it out of context. I heard a lot at then. I didn’t do such act on a bad taste so was not bothered that much. It was a normal practice to dance on stage and throw things to the public” she said.
Adwoa Smart became famous as a cast of popular Obra Drama group as well as popular for her role in Efie Wura TV series.
She has performed in a number of television dramas and stage productions for Obra and also featured in a number of films.
