Unfazed by recent criticisms regarding her raunchy dressing, the ’90s’ Bad gal’, Ebony has responded to Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) president Bice Osei Kuffuor aka Obur, over the latter’s comment about the dancehall diva’s outfits for performances.
Reacting to Obour’s remarks in a Facebook post, Ebony sarcastically said that it is acceptable in the Ghanaian culture when one embezzles funds meant for the Musicians Union of Ghana.
She advised the MUSIGA President to rather focus his attention on improving the welfare of musicians.
“Ebony reigns dressing is very bad and is not our culture, but ‘chopping’ of musicians money is very good and I think that is our culture. some gh musicians are dying of hunger and what is ur union doing about that mr president?do you really care?#hustle.” Ebony posted on Facebook.
MUSIGA President, Bice Osei Kuffour (Obour), told Joy News that Ebony’s dressing on stage and in music videos is very ‘bad’.
“It is very bad. Again, in our vein 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… that they should be cautious of the moral values of the country that they are operating in” explained Kuffour to Joy News.
“Lady Gaga could wear it and nobody would cry, will scream foul about it because maybe the environment, and the moral values of the country they are in, is different from the moral values of the country we are in now. And so we are always advising our musicians to be quite decorous… in their way of dressing.”
Ebony has come under severe criticism from many people for her outfits especially after what she wore to the 2017 4Syte TV Music Video Awards.
Ebony is usually critized for what many say is her lack of talent, and believe her showing skin on stage and in music videos is to push attention from her untalented self.
In July 2017, her dad was forced to defend her daughter in an interview with Graphic Showbiz.
“I am supportive of anything my daughter does and anything she wears. I am not ashamed as a father, the truth is that, I choose what she wears and I bless her before she goes out to perform. Some Ghanaians are hypocrites and I am sorry but I am not one of them,” explained Mr. Kwarteng.
Born Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng, her song ‘Kupe’ helped her gain mainstream attention in the Ghanaian music industry.
