Ebony’s dressing on stage and in music videos “is very bad,” says MUSIGA President, Bice Osei Kuffour (Obour).
“It is very bad. Again, in our vein as a union as much as we will try to make the public understand the role that our musicians play, that they are in an acting role… that they should be cautious of the moral values of the country that they are operating in” explained Kuffour to JOY NEWS.
“Lady Gaga could wear it and nobody would cry, will scream foul about it because maybe the environment, and the moral values of the country they are in, is different from the moral values of the country we are in now. And so we are always advising our musicians to be quite decorous… in their way of dressing.”
Ebony has come under severe criticism from many people for her outfits especially after what she wore to the 2017 4Syte TV Music Video Awards.
Ebony is usually critized for what many say is her lack of talent, and believe her showing skin on stage and in music videos is to push attention from her untalented self.
In July 2017, her dad was forced to defend her daughter in an interview with Graphic Showbiz.
“I am supportive of anything my daughter does and anything she wears. I am not ashamed as a father, the truth is that, I choose what she wears and I bless her before she goes out to perform. Some Ghanaians are hypocrites and I am sorry but I am not one of them,” explained Mr. Kwarteng.
“I am not bothered at all. The reason is simple, I know my daughter than anyone else. What people see out there is what we want them to see and that is because she is an artiste and needs a brand that will sell. For God’s sake, she is a Dancehall artiste and she wears what will make her feel confident when performing on stage. Something that will depict the genre of music and songs she churns outs.”
He shared his thoughts on the the perception that his daughter is “bad” girl.
“My daughter is not a bad girl, she is very calm, loving and a respectful person. Whatever she does on stage ends there. She is a different person when she gets home.”
He also spoke about the relationship between himself and his “girl as I usually call her is close to my heart.”
“We are so close that I gave her the go ahead when she told me she wanted to do music. Initially I questioned her decision because, she is a very intelligent girl and was doing extremely well in school and every parent will want his or her child to get to the top of the highest academic ladder. But she insisted music was what she wanted to do. Music is where her heart is and I gave her my blessings. I couldn’t have stopped her because these children are smart.”
Born Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng, her song ‘Kupe’ helped her gain mainstream attention in the Ghanaian music industry.
She scored two nominations at the 2017 Ghana Music Awards: Dancehall Artiste of the Year and Best Reggae/ Dancehall Song of the Year .
Ebony is signed to Rufftown Records.

‘Olympus has fallen’ – Ghanaian blast actress Ahuofe Patri over sagging boobs
Seems like Ghanaian are more than capable of giving Nigerians a good run for their money in terms which country has the most ‘savages’ on social media.
Well, Ghanaian actress, Ahuofe Patri would definitely not appreciate this as she has just been slammed by a section of her followers for sharing a photo that showed her sagging boobs on social media.

Stacy Amoateng Is An Evil Woman Who Covers Her Deeds With Christianity – Mzbel
Mzbel was furious, I could tell from her mawkish voice.
Before my conversation with Mzbel a few minutes ago, the last time I spoke to Nana Ekua Amoah was when I was in Ghana in September. We planned to meet but that could not happen.
At a point in my online journalism life, Mzbel was a friend who could call anytime for great conversations and sometimes advice. She even had access to my private number. But things fell apart, over the usual—I wrote something she found unfavourable.
Slowly, we seem to be building our fallen friendship, one stone at a time and therefore, it was not much of a shock to have heard her raging voice at the other end of the phone when I answered a call from an unsaved Ghana number.
As the Igbos say, “the frog does not run in the afternoon for nothing, if something is not chasing it, then it is chasing something.”
Mzbel was wielding an assault weapon—she was looking for a credible and reliable platform to voice out her sentiments, following an Instagram post by Stacy Amoateng, host of Restoration with Stacy.
So she called GhanaCelebrities.Com, a platform she may disagree with on many levels but trust our reach and integrity to come to, when she needs to be heard—clearly and undiluted.
In celebration of the third anniversary of her TV Show, Restoration with Stacy, Amoateng took to Instagram to somewhat resurrect a defunct feud between Mzbel and herself.
She wrote: “Dear Lord, there are so many things I want to tell you. When this vision started, most people thought it was another tv show , but I always say NO, This is a ministry for God.”
“Elohim, Restoration has come with its own challenges, pain, tears, betrayal even from some people who I used the platform to promote but they turned around to paint me black. Through it all, you said BE STILL.”
“You told me how I felt was exactly how you feel anytime we let you down. This experience moulded me to be a better person and very careful of my relationship with you. I was hurt , I was broken and as much as I said it was okay, I wasn’t okay.”
“For the first time in 3 years I am talking about this because I have finally gotten over it. I never spoke I didn’t want to say things I couldn’t take back.Mzbel I forgive you,” she added.
Mzbel did not only find the fact that Stacy mentioned her name was unnecessary but also hypocritical–and didn’t hold back. In the about the 15 minutes’ conversation, she lashed out at Stacy, calling her a liar, an evil woman, a disease and a hypocrite.
Asked whether she would want to patch her relationship with Stacy, Mzbel said that would never happen—in fact, she does not even need such a hypocrite who covers her diabolical deeds with Christianity in her life.
