After stating that flaunting her sanitary pad at two events was not a publicity stunt, neither is she ashamed of the incident, Fantana who intends to share sanitary pads to some school girls and educate them on menstrual hygiene says she does not know her menstrual cycle.
Speaking on Peace FM’s Entertainment Review, Saturday, the Blown GH signee noted that although people have chastised her for showing the world her sanitary pad, she cannot be bothered because she is a woman and women are supposed to menstruate.
Asked why she could not dress appropriately knowing she was in that state, the singer reiterated that she got to know her time was due thirty minutes to the performance.
“You don’t know your menstrual date?” a female panelist asked.
“Yeah, I don’t know my menstrual cycle,” the singer responded.
Fantana made headlines after she showed her sanitary pad during her performance at Shatta Wale’s ‘Reign Concert’ and Obrafour’s ‘Back To Taifa’ show in October.
In her quest to rationalize the incident, Fantana under the guidance of her management offered an explanation while expressing disappointment in websites which made the publications.
“Despite a lot of awareness going on and efforts by the UNDP to end this discrimination and abuse against young girls and women I was surprised to see some bloggers and a section of the media high light and body shame me because I refused to let my menses stop me from performing when I felt it coming 30 minutes before I went on stage last Saturday at the fantasy dome,” a statement from the singer, issued on Monday, October 21, 2019 read.
Her response was described as lame by a section of the public, including musician Epixode.
In an interview on Zylofon FM, the dancehall artiste said: “I think it’s a lame thing to do because I think it was all planned… I think it’s wise enough, she came on stage with dancers, right? So if you know that this had happened, it’s quite simple to say that ‘charlie swap- give me one of your (leggings or something) just to cover up’ because they were behind and you are actually a front girl.”
