Experienced Ghanaian musician and television personality, Akosua Agyapong, has sent a word of caution to young female musicians and actresses in the entertainment industry over what she describes as ‘nudity for money’.
According to Akosua Agyapong, Ghanaian female entertainers must shun trading sexual favours in exchange of material things and their bid to push their brands.
Speaking at the final funeral rites of veteran Ghanaian actor, Super OD at Agona-Abodom in the Central Region on Saturday, Akosua Agyapong who was clearly not happy bemoaned the spate of sexual scandals that have bedeviled Ghana's entertainment industry.
To her, the rate at which upcoming musicians and actresses are giving in to men in order to be ‘successful’ is appalling and calls for a halt to the shameful practice.
The veteran musician in her interaction with Adom TV stressed that no upcoming actress or musician must sell her body in order to be famous if they are really talented.
“You don’t need to look naked to prove your talent. It is only God that can make you famous. We can use my career as an example. Now they want the money and a lot are greedy wanting to lead the competition. Don’t let someone sleep with you for acting role. Go through the hard way,” she said.
Akosua Agyapong in further comments described the late Super OD as a man who was full of life and loved everyone equally.
The ‘evergreen’ musician also urged her fans to look out for her next album dubbed: 'Ye Wani na Gye Wani'.
