Dance hall and afrobeat artiste Ebony in a recent radio interview said Ghanaians will soon get used to her style of dressing.
She said she is not bothered about what comments people make about her dressing. The Sponsor hit singer, has come under attack many times over issues relating to her style of dressing. Celestine Donkor and Manasseh Azuri were the recent to have commented on her style of dressing.
The Gospel songstress has advised dance hall and afrobeat artiste Ebony in an open letter to watch her style of dressing.
Celestine in the letter she posted on Facebook, commends Ebony for her talent and style but advises her to be decent in her dressing.
Her letter comes few days after pictures and videos of Ebony’s costume to the 4syte Music Video Awards ‘broke’ the internet.
Below is Celestine’s letter to singer Ebony:
I have taken time to listen to your songs, and watched most of your live performances on youtube [sic]. I must say you are a very talented artist….actually.
#YourTalent&Style: weight for me, is like combining 3 secular female artist [sic] whom I don’t want to mention their names here.
#YourLyrics: are very smart and takes a very strong feminist disposition- Empowering women and bringing out challenges and Delimer [sic] that young ladies face.
#YourVoice: is simply amazing! Very strong and catches attention instant attention without negotiation.
#YourBrand: though still developing Is a contageous fever that can’t be ignored. With a strategic management team, you are capable of contending with any Competitor.
Now the contradiction about you is how you interpret all these great qualities on stage….. My point is with all these….. Is ‘nudity’ necessary? I really want to know, what value does exposing your nakedness to the public add to your brand…. Because actually, it’s not Like going nakedly wild on stage is something new……. Mzbel did that before….”
However, some have described Ebony’s style of dressing as a brand positioning for the songs she does.
Ebony has hit songs like ‘Kupe,’ ‘Poison,’ ‘Sponsor,’ Date r Fada’ and the recent controversial ‘Hustle.’
