Ghanaian music artiste Lord Paper, popular for his recent video for his song titled ‘Awurama,’ has rendered an apology to Ghanaians for using sexually explicit images to project his music career.
Born Michael Takyi Frimpong, Lord Paper said he did what he did out of “hunger” to succeed in his career even though he knew it was an immoral act, promising “it won’t happen again.”
On Monday, he released a song titled ‘Pono’. The song was supposed to be accompanied by another sexually suggestive video, but he called it off though its images were already released on Saturday.
“I changed my mind, I think it’s time I end it. I wanted to prove a point and I think I already have,” he said.
He went on to say that, “The industry should try and create a platform for the underground artistes, so we don’t have to pull stunts to get attention. I apologise to Ghanaians for the immoral act even though it’s art, I’m actually a good kid. I respect my country and the morality of the country… I promise it won’t happen again.
I was supposed to drop a video today but looking at the explicit nature of it, I personally think it’s enough.”
However, the artiste has promised to shoot a "mind-blowing" video for the remix to the song, Pono.
Lord Paper has been in the news for several days now following a rather bold and explicitly sexual video that sent the whole nation into roars, questioning where the morality of the youth today lay.
