Showbiz pundit, Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo, has admitted to lying in his recent claims that actresses Yvonne Okoro and Joselyn Dumas fought over a ‘big man’.
He has therefore retracted and rendered an unqualified apology over the statement, indicating he acted ‘irresponsibly’.
It may be recalled that Arnold while speaking on Peace FM’s Entertainment Review programme hosted by Akwasi Aboakye on August 8, 2020, stated without any caution that a certain ‘big man’ once bought a Mercedes Benz and Range Rover Evoque for Yvonne Okoro and Joselyn Dumas after one of them introduced the other to the ‘big man’.
The ‘big man’, he claimed, bought a bigger car for the actress who was introduced to him, and that led to a misunderstanding between the two celebrated actresses.
But he has made a u-turn to say he lied in his claim. He didn’t cross-check his facts before making those comments.
“I retract and apologize for comments I uttered about actress Yvonne Okoro during my contribution to a discussion on Peace FM’s Entertainment Review programme on August 8, 2020.
My checks prove that my commentary about Yvonne Okoro on the said radio programme were complete lies, defamatory and unfounded.
“The comments turned out to be injurious to the reputation of Yvonne and I sincerely apologize to Yvonne and her family for my irresponsible utterances,” Arnold said in his retraction statement to Yvonne Okoro.
