Highlife, Kojo Antwi has accused Dancehall Diva, Ebony’s managers of leading her in the wrong direction as regards to her branding.
The ‘sponsor’ crooner has come under heavy flak from a section of the public for her outfit to shows in which she shows a lot of skin, sometimes almost showing her private part.
She’s undoubtedly the female musician in Ghana in recent years who has generated so much talk and instigated so much controversy for both her artistry and branding.
Private legal practitioner, Gary Nimako while commenting on Ebony’s choice of clothing in public argued it can lead to her arrest by the Ghana Police Service, if the police are confident she has a case to answer.
Speaking to Gatuso on Aben Wo Ha on Kasapa FM, the Highlife legend, Kojo Antwi, noted that the direction in which Ebony is going if not check will not ensure her relevance and longevity in the music industry.
“I’m a leader in the Music industry and so I always try to choose my words carefully to encourage the young ones because I want them to come and do bigger things than what our generation has done.
I’ve read and heard about Ebony and people have ways of marketing themselves, I think her think thank, I mean her managers are trying to give her a direction which may not help her in the long run.
Every artiste what you know to do best must sell you as a person. In the west, sex sells, that is why almost everything sold including deodorant people will like to shape it like something, because it will sell.
If you’re an artist and you want longevity in the industry, and you’re working on a song, the kind of things you talk about, you let people know what you stand for and must add value to peoples lives.
I’m known for composing love songs which people listen to enrich their love life and solving marital problems”.
Kojo has however indicated that he prefers to advise Ebony indoors rather than publicly criticize the musician whenever he has an opportunity.
