His candidacy had been viewed as a joke by many. Afida Turner, real name Hafidda Messaï, announced on Monday on her Twitter account that she would ultimately not apply for the next presidential election in 2022.
The former reality TV actress and presenter who currently lives in the United States launched this cobblestone in the pond on May 31, 2020, still on the blue bird’s social network.
With this candidacy, she wanted in particular to show her support for the movement of the yellow vests, which she is defending.
Afida Turner was born on December 22nd, 1976 in Auchel in the Pas-de-Calais. She is a singer, media personality, and French actress best known for her participation in various reality shows. She specifically used the pseudonym Lesly during her participation in Loft Story 2, which aired in 2002.
After the show, she started singing and released records under the name Lesly Mess. She then emigrated to the United States to pursue a musical career there. She is also known in France for her somewhat imaginative interventions in the media.
Afida Turner kept the rumor of her running for president going for months.

The reality TV actress never hid her support for Trump’s guidelines on her Twitter feed. Like many of her followers, she believes that the election was stolen from her. Reason enough not to show up.
