“I wasn’t paid to be an influencer for coronavirus vaccination exercise” – Diana Hamilton rubbishes claims
Ghanaian gospel singer, Diana Hamilton has rubbished claims of receiving money behind closed door to be an influencer for the coronavirus vaccination exercise because she was the first Ghana to take a jab of the drug although she was in UK at that period.
According to the The ‘Mo Ne Yo’ hitmaker, no government official has approached her not to talk of paying her to campaign for the success of the vaccination exercise.
Talking on Kastle Entertainment Show in Cape Coast, Diana Antwi was questioned as to why she shared a video of herself taking the Covid-19 vaccine and why she clarified in the video that no one has paid her to do that.
To be honest I didn’t really think someone will doubt but nowadays due to social media we’ve become influencers and people will approach you to be an influencer.”
If you’re not careful your information to the public will be skewed so in that case if an influencer is marketing a product you will surely think that person has been paid for sweet-talking,” she remarked.
When it happens like that it makes people switch off straight away so I just thought that I should say it on record as a fact that I haven’t taken money or planned with someone to come and give a testimony about the Covid-19 vaccine jab neither did I speak with any government officials
I thought that I’m a nurse and I had COVID-19 so I’m in a better position to explain myself that’s why I said on authority that no one has paid me to campaign for the Covid-19 vaccination,” she continued.
Let me wipe away the idea that I’m speaking for a company or an organization so that people will know that I’m speaking from an unbiased position
