American model Amber rose causes controversy in ghana by tweeting photos of deprived ghanaians


     American model Amber rose is presently in ghana to host Vodafone 020 live concert featuring Music stars Trey Songz , D banj ,R2 Beez and many others. 
  Amber visited  a villlage in Ghana  after arriving and tweeted the pictures that shows her and some deprived ghanaians . Ghanaians on social media  are  not happy with her for tweeting  pictures of only deprived people  and not rich people and  beautiful places in ghana.

The guys played the drums for me & said they wanted to Welcome me home, naturally I told them I wasn't from Africa & They said "We r all brothers & sisters everyone comes from Africa Welcome home Amber" #Deep

Amber visits an islamic school
     I went & spoke 2 young girls at an Islamic school in Ghana today about Girl Power education & not falling into the wrong lifestyle as I did as a young girl. I made a lot of mistakes in my life & they've come back to haunt me, but now I have the opportunity 2 talk to girls all over the world & to let them know that they should chose a better way & not follow in my footsteps. These girls are Awesome & it was a true blessing meeting them today they have inspired me! #InspireGirls #GirlPower :-)


See all her tweets below


She has apologized in an interview saying;
      “People have to understand that this is my first time in Africa. This is not my culture. I have never been here so if I said anything to hurt anyone’s feelings then I am very sorry. I saw that a lot of people on twitter said ‘don’t just show the poverty, show the rich people’. But for me, the rich people aren’t doing anything for the little kids and the people that are living in poverty so I don’t want to go hang out with the rich people.”
“I wanted to see the kids in poverty. I grew up very poor. So I wanted to go see them, help them, talk to them and inspire them to let them know they could possibly be somebody great. So I want everyone in Ghana to know that I wasn’t saying that Ghana is a poor country and no one should come here. Anyone that I have spoken to about Ghana since I have been here, I have been saying that it’s such an amazing place. And I’m sorry for not posting pictures of rich people, but it just wasn’t for me to do”
