Amarachi Amusi, also known as Ashmusy, a Nigerian content producer says that after being mistaken for a runs girl, she modified her appearance and stopped wearing skimpy attire.
The actress revealed in a podcast interview with Phyna that because she would frequently flaunt her body in her videos, people began to think of her as a kind of runs girl.
Ashmusy continued by saying that she needed to stand back and try to understand why people had such negative opinions about her. She realized that it was because of her skimpy clothing after seeing her recordings.
She claimed that while she was entertaining and cracking jokes, she was unaware that her audience was considering other things.
In her words;
“Before I rebranded a few months ago, I used to wear sexy outfits. As a young girl, one would want to show one’s body. I did not know that I was being perceived as a prostitute. Meanwhile, I knew how much I was working behind the camera, running a business, and shooting adverts every day. With all of that, I was able to buy a car and house. It pained me when people insinuated that those things were bought for me by a man.
I was later in my quiet zone, thinking about why I was being judged that way, despite all my works that they people were seeing. I then started watching my videos, seeing that most times my body was exposed, with my nipples even showing. I was being goofy, but I did not know that people had been looking at something else. I have realised that if one wants to be seen as a prestigious woman, one has to dress accordingly. One cannot be showing (sensitive) parts of one’s body.”
