YEN.com.gh has sighted some photos of respected highlife legend, Ben Brako, displaying the ‘raw’ beauty of his wife to the world at large.
Ben Brako shared these photos on his official Facebook page, claiming that the aim of leaking the photos was to celebrate the rich Ghanaian “tradition” .
The photos, as sighted by YEN.com.gh, have generated heated controversy and argument on Facebook between the fans and followers of the ace musician.
Explaining the rationale behind displaying those strictly private photos with the public, Ben Brako wrote as caption to one of his posts: "To Kofi Nyaako, and others who only see this as titillation and nakedness instead of the beauty, artistry and African high culture that it truly represents , this is for you as well. Nobody is flaunting any goodies. Take the higher ground."
In one of the photos, Ben Brako shared just his wife covered only with beads around her waist, while she remained seated with her hand covering her breasts with the caption: "My baby got swag".
Some of his fans and followers have shared the photos to their various Facebook pages, as YEN.com.gh has observed.
Many are those who do not agree with him on sharing the photos, while a few have supported his “tradition” agenda.
For instance, a Facebook user, Edmund Agyeman, believed the act was "absolute stupidity" on the part of Ben Brako "at his age".
David also described it as "nonsense".
Selasi has disputed Ben Brako's claims that the photo depicts the Ghanaian culture. To him, it doesn't.
Selasi again wrote that Ben Brako deserves to be lambasted on those photos as it was done to the late Ebony Reigns. He added that "Let's not pretend this style of dressing is OK.."
Meanwhile, another Facebook user, a female, who obviously admired Ben Brako's act said he is the kind of man she would want to date.
But she was slammed by a male user, Kwamena, for making such a confession.
Ben Brako is one of Ghana's finest when it comes to highlife music.
His contemporaries in music include Amandzeba Nat Brew, Amakye Dede, Daddy Lumba, Kojo Antwi, just to mention a few.
