Just after we wrote about Goldie’s death, some photos were made available to Nollywoodgossip through email by a person who claimed to be very close to her.
We thought hard and long and decided against publishing the photographs. We felt that Goldie should be accorded the respect she deserved. Throughout her career, the press humiliated her, the masses revolted against almost every step she took. And now at death, shouldn’t we at least accord her two days respect?
When controversial American music legend Micheal Jackson died, the American press — which, for most part of his adult life, had turned him into an object of caricature — united in giving him some respect for almost a month or even more, before any negative or disrespectful stories were written about him.
We at Nollywoodgossip respect freedom of speech and the eagerness of some bloggers to publish anything just to make name, but we still believe that Goldie should’ve been shown a little more respect.
We felt the need to explain this to you, our awesome readers, and we pray you understand why we refused to publish the controversial wedding photographs.
Thanks for being with us through all these years.
