Budding rapper, Wisa, who is well known for his smash hit single ‘Ekiki Me’ has rendered an unqualified apology for showing his genitals during a performance on stage.
The rapper did the unthinkable while performing at this year’s Decemba 2 Rememba by Accra-based Citi FM Thursday night. He decided to strip on stage and show his genitals.
Midway through his performance on stage, the musician while wriggling his waist behind a voluptuous lady drew down his white boxer shorts which was already showing in his saggy jeans and pulled out his manhood.
To the dismay of many, Wisa, who clearly did not see anything wrong with the act, continued humping behind the lady. The act by the musician has been condemned widely on social media.
Jessica Opare Saforo, Programmes Manager of Citi FM, in a tweet apologised for the unfortunate incident. She said: “Pls accept our sincere apology about the unfortunate incident with Wisa Greid. Citi FM does not condone indecent exposure”.
Edward Nana Poku Osei (Hammer), Director of Hiplife and Hip-hop at the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) in a statement expressed extreme disappointment in the act by the young musician.
According to Hammer, Wisa “disgraced this entire organization and the Ghanaian Music industry with his indecent exposure.”
The musician reacting to the huge public uproar generated by the incident said in statement that he has regretted his action and is ready to “avail myself to all planned disciplinary actions in the coming week.”

Wisa Greid (Eugene Ashie)
BBK Entertainment (Management),
25 December 2015,
I fully understand the outrage that will greet this statement. And I want to begin by saying I am really, truly sorry.
In the early hours of Friday, December 25, I performed at the December 2 Remember Concert, organized by Citi FM. It was really my first big career live stage performance and the crowd had been amazing in the way they received me. Then, I did something disappointing. I showed my genitals while performing.
I cannot explain this rash and irresponsible behaviour, but I have been trained to acknowledge my fault and be responsible for my actions. That is why I want to accept every bit of criticism that has come my way in the ensuing hours.
I have disappointed myself, my family, my hard-working management team, Citi FM and the audience, who paid hard-earned money to be entertained but instead went away feeling anything but entertained.
Most importantly, I disappointed my God. I am exceedingly sorry for what I have done. I acknowledge the statement issued earlier from the Office of Hiplife and Hiphop at the Musician Union of Ghana and will avail myself to all planned disciplinary actions in the coming week. There are no words to describe how I feel about what I did. I hope the public as a whole and all industry stakeholders will find a place in their hearts to forgive me.
Thank you ver much.
