Former first Deputy Speaker of Parliament Freddie Blay says he sees nothing wrong with eccentric afro music duo ‘Wanluv da Kubolor’ and ‘M3nsa’ posing nude for the cameras.
Blay told XYZ Breakfast Show that: “I’ve seen it [the nude picture] in the papers and so forth. They went nude. Fortunately not in Ghana [but] somewhere else – maybe at a nude beach. They had the pictures which they kept for themselves and maybe their close ones and it’s found its way in the public. I won’t condemn it because they’ve gone nude. What’s wrong with it?”
The leaked nude picture went viral on social media site facebook.
It shows the two Adisadel College old boys (Santa Clausians) standing side-by-side with their erect phalluses pointing right at the camera.
Wanluv and M3nsa, who shot into fame with their ‘kokonsa’ and ‘cos ov moni’ tracks, have, over the years, carved a niche for themselves as a ‘weird’ duo in Ghanaian showbiz.
Wanluv, who mostly walks barefooted in town without boxer shorts or any clothing, save his waist cloth, came under an avalanche of flak after exposing his appendage on national TV during an interview with entertainment show host ‘Delay’ in 2012.
FOKN Bois, as the duo are popularly known, were recently spotted in the US shopping half naked. They wore only their boxer shorts.
Freddie Blay, a three-time former Legislator of Ellembelle in the Western region and also an old student of Adisadel College (Santa Clausian) said: “They are stars. They are celebrities in their own way. They attract attention. They do things that they want to do in their own way”.
Asked if such behaviour wasn’t dragging the name of their alma mater in the mud, Blay said: “I don’t think so. On the contrary – not just because they have gone naked – the songs they are singing, the music they are playing, everything they are doing is bringing the name of Adisadel to [the limelight]. Adisadel people do things, sometimes, in a very unorthodox way. Maybe we shouldn’t condemn them for that”.
