A nude Ghanaian photo model, Bridget Ama Ampomah popularly known as Ama Richest says if she ever falls victim to rape, she would have no one but herself to blame.
She caused social media frenzy last week with nude painted pictures of herself, detailing the issues that dominated the headlines last year, on her bare body.
The pictures, taken by a photographer by name Kwesi Nikon, who describes himself as a nudist, stirred a lot of conversations on social media.
As some expressed horror over the images, others admired it simply as art.
Ama Richest, however, believes that if ever her nude pictures cause any man to commit the crime of rape, “well I’m going to blame myself,” she admitted.
She, however, added that “there is no way someone is going to rape me because I take very good care of myself.”
The model, who also owns and operates a pub, told Ady Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM that, despite the attempts to ridicule her, she is not ready to give up her career as a nude model.
She says she “will do more”.
According to her, it is the only job she knows, and she admits the income is good.
People have cursed, insulted, judged and questioned the mental state of this young lady.
Speaking about the photos, she said that she posted the nude photos herself online with her photographer.
Speaking about the motive behind it, “Ama Richest” said,
“that is my brand and who I am, I don’t pretend to be someone I’m not just to make people like me. That’s why I love Shatta Wale because he speaks his mind not caring about what people think of him thus the reason for his name also inscribed on my body”
She also spoke about the names and events written on her body saying, “I wanted to remind Ghanaians of particular happenings in the past year because they talk a lot about things that happen then forget easily in a short while.”
