The president of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bice Osei Kuffuor, has given the reasons behind his comments on music artiste, Ebony’s dress code.
The MUSIGA leader, better known as Obuor stated that contrary to allegations going round, he sought to given an opinion on Ebony’s choice of clothing.
He explained that he never criticized her, but rather cautioned her to be cautious of the environment in which she finds herself.
Speaking with Bola Ray on Starr Chat on Wednesday January 31, 2018, he said that “It’s very bad.
Again…as a union, as much as we will try to make the public understand the role that our musicians play, that they are in an acting role…they should be cautious of the moral values of the country that they are operating in”.
He went ahead to say that foreign musicians could dress as they wish and generate no backlash from people in their community, because of the values of the people.
The African’s moral standards, he stated, are however different and may be subjected to unique standards.
In an earlier report by YEN.com.gh, Obuor is reported to have described Ebony’s dressing style as bad.
The MUSIGA president however claims he was misrepresented by the media.
According to him, he was only advising the ‘Maame Hwe’ singer to be mindful of the environment she lives in.
