Member of Parliament (MP) for Manso-Adubia constituency in the Ashanti Region, Mr. Frimpong Yaw Addo, has condemned the use of nudity to achieve stardom in Ghana’s entertainment industry.
According to him, the practice was “unacceptable” and must be condemned as Africa culture frowns on it.
His comment comes on the back of the release of nude photos by actress, Christabel Ekeh, and social media sensation, Rashida Black Beauty.
The nude photos of the actress, and porn video of Rashida Black Beauty, which have gone viral on social media, saw the country talking for days.
Speaking in an interview with the media, Mr. Addo advised young entertainers not to allow their love for money get them going nude.
“This latest nudity craze is all because of the love for money, and how we copy blindly,” he maintained.
“I read a story where Ekeh’s manager said the nudity was to introduce her new brand but it all has to do with the love for money. They believe they will get more money by going nude but going nude is unacceptable. We are not in a western society. What people should know is that we are Africans, especially Ghanaians,” Mr. Addo reiterated.
He cited a quote from late J. B. Danquah which reads: “the African is notoriously religious…our culture is an embodiment of our lives and our way of life is also embodied in our culture,” to buttress his point.
The Manso-Adubia lawmaker, therefore, cautioned entertainers to desist from using nudity to reach the pinnacle of their careers.
