Lydia Forson, KSM and Naa Ashorkor during the days of Perfect Picture
Popular Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson has broken her silence on claims that she pre-empted the marriage of her best friend, Naa Ashorkor Mensah, in her recent produced movie, A Letter From Adams.
According to the bubbly actress, the marriage was a case of “art imitating life,” in relation to her movie.
Naa, who just got married to her long time lover, Ahuma Cabutey Adodoaji, over the weekend, played a supporting actress in Lydia
’s new movie.
Her character name was Kabuki and she also got engaged in the movie and a lot happened around the engagement.
This has heightened speculations on some social platforms about the marriage, the new movie and perhaps what will happen next.  
But Lydia Forson told NEWS-ONE yesterday that she knew nothing about Naa’s marriage before she wrote the movie’s script.
Earlier on, she had also denied the movie’s story has got something to do with her personal life.
“I guess it’s just a case of “art imitating life” because I wrote the story in 2010 and even during the movie shoot we used to joke about how real her engagement scene looked. We had fun teasing her about it. “Little did I know she was going to get engaged months later.
“Even the name Kabuki was just purely coincidental. We decided to change the name a few days before the shoot because the initial name just wasn’t working for me. I came up with several names and Naa suggested Kabuki. It started off as a joke but eventually everyone on set caught on to it and it stayed.
“I’m really happy for her and glad in some way my movie will be associated with her special day. I probably will never forget this experience,” Lydia Forson insisted yesterday.
Asked when she heard of the engagement, she said, “let’s just say I knew they would get married someday; so when I heard it, it wasn’t too much of a surprise. But like everyone else the news came unexpectedly.”
The actress turn producer was among some Ghanaian entertainment industry names who attended Naa’s engagement last Saturday.
