Ghanaian gospel artiste Hanna Marfo has appealed to Ghanaian musicians to stop promoting nudity in their music videos and performances.
The ‘Ye som obiara’ singer made the plea in an interview with Docta Kay on Accra100.5FM’s Nkran Kwanso on Thursday, 21 July 2022.
She called on Ghanaian musicians to dress decently and stop exposing their bodies in an attempt to promote their songs.
“Our mother, Ewurama Badu, was a highlife artiste but she dressed decently”.
“Akosua Agyapong, who sings and dances, dresses so decently”.
“We had other female singers: Lady Talata, Asabea Cropper, they didn’t expose their bodies”.
“I’m pleading with all musicians: heaping your boobs and exposing your body won’t be the reason for people to listen to your songs. Your songs are already pleasing to the ears that’s why people sing them, so, please, cover up”, she advised.
She added: “I can’t tell what will happen in 20 years, whether we’ll start going naked or what, I can’t tell, so, please, I plead with you all to cover up.”
