He is controversial and it is therefore not surprising that Counsellor George Lutterodt has criticised nudity and exposure in the Ghanaian showbiz industry. He describes the trend as prostitution.
In an interview with Showbiz, Counsellor Lutterodt described the trend of celebrities exposing their breasts and cleavages on red carpet events and other entertainment platforms as insanity and called on women everywhere to rise up and redeem the image of feminism. “I believe our people are getting out of hand and it’s time someone let them know that nudity is prostitution. For me, whatever you show is advert and we only advertise for purposes of sales and marketing. Nudity should never be exchanged for fashion,” he said.
“We are role models, people wish to become like us, and once this is so, we have to bring some sanity in the way we dress. Our celebrities have gone naked in the name of fashion. You go for programmes and see people virtually naked just to be fashionable,” he added.
He mentioned that as role models and people in the public eye, celebrities have a duty to set positive examples in order to train the future generation.
“If you think empowerment of women means they have to go about showing their cleavages, then I beg to differ. If you are, you do not have to show your nakedness, rather you make people assess you based on your work,” he added.
The outspoken counsellor also criticised the increasing trend of leaked sex-tapes and pictures and warned couples to desist from the habit of making and sharing such content among themselves.
“Any man or woman who requests for your nude picture because they have missed you is calling you a harlot, prostitute and has disrespected you. If a man truly respects you, he will never ask you to send him a nude picture. This is disrespect to womanhood’. “If you miss your partner, you have to physically go to them, you do not request for a sex video, which will one day become a shame to them,” he added.
“All these distant relations that people request videos and pictures have led people to become lesbians and homosexuals because they begin to fondle themselves and this leads to other things,” he said.
He warned men to be wary of women who voluntarily record and send such videos to them .
“Only prostitutes will sell themselves for gain. If you are going out with her and she sends you such a video, then know that you are in the biggest danger of your life because she is not a woman but a prostitute in disguise,” he stated.
