“Creatives Need To Control Nudity In The Food Chain – J.Derobie Urges

Published

on

Fast-rising dancehall/afrobeat artiste signed on to eMPawa Africa, J. Derobie, in a recent interview on the Late Nite Celebrity Show with Foster Romanus, has urged his colleague creatives to control the explicit scenes portrayed in their music visuals as music medium people use to convey and disburse messages to a large audience.

According to him, “There are children coming up and it will help if the nudity is limited. During my childhood, you wouldn’t see such things. It was balanced. If you’re even watching a movie and there’s a kissing scene, you have to look away else the ‘cane will have your meat'”

“This is where we need to sit back or go to the drawing board and see which type of content we want to promote. Sometimes, it is what the director wants and sometimes, it is what the artistes themselves want.”

“Other times, the media houses also have no choice than to play it but when we go to the drawing board and decide to limit these things, others will also follow because everyone wants their songs to be played on Tv”. He reiterated.

J.DEROBIE, one of the rising stars of Ghana’s exploding music scene signed shares his debut EP, Nungua Diaries. The six-song EP, which takes its name from the Accra community where J.DEROBIE grew up, contains a mix of dancehall, afrobeats and afro-dancehall tracks with production from GuiltyBeatz, Uche B., UglyOnIt and BeatzFada.
