Kontihene fires Obour you also have a profane song

Hiplife musician, Kontihene, has expressed his
disappointment in Bice Osei Kuffour (Obour),
President of Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA),
over a statement he issued which suggested that
musicians desist from the use of profane lyrics.
In a statement released on Wednesday, the union
urged Ghanaian musicians to put together lyrics
which can have a positive impact on the listener
than one punctuated with profanity.
The union further called on the National Media
Commission (NMC) to check such songs which
are sometimes played on air during primetime.
The statement also asked media houses to do
well to ensure that such practices are
discouraged by not giving it rotation.
In response to the statement, Kontihene rather
asked Obour to apologise to Ghanaians over the
profane lyrics he used in his songs when he
reached the pinnacle of his music career.
Kontihene told Pulse that “Every artiste has his
own followers and the kind of music his followers
understand. Music is a medium through which
artistes communicate to their audience. There are
certain audience who understand certain kinds of
languages and there are others who don’t
tolerate such language. So if the artiste is
confortable, his fans also understand him best. If
they communicate through music and certain
languages, I don’t have a problem with it.”
Speaking about why Obour should apologise for
his popular song “Konkontiba”, the “Dedeede” hit
make disclosed that, the MUSIGA president has
no right to condemn the act since he once
indulged in it and has not rendered an apology
for that.
“Obour should come out and apologise to
Ghanaians about “Konkontiba” because of the
kind of (profane) words he used in the track.
Before talking about profane music in the
industry, he should first come and apologise.
“I think morally, Obour is not fit to condemn any
profane song. He championed a profane song
and he succeeded so at this time, he should
enjoy his tenure in office, loot all the money he
can and after his tenure, we can sit down and
talk about profane songs. For now, he is not fit
to talk about profane song,” he said.
Meanwhile, dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, has
also come out to react to the statement.
According to him, the statement is a “total
disgrace”.
He further stated that, MUSIGA should rather be
educating musicians on how best to be in
business instead of focusing on profanity in
music.
