Tourism Minister, Barbara Oteng-Gyasi has urged feuding female musicians to desist from trading subtle jabs and insults among themselves as it doesn’t speak well of them as women.
The Minister is concerned that such acts may negatively influence the younger generation and youth who take inspiration from the artistes.
She advised them to instead use their songs to promote positive narratives about women which will go a long way to impact generations.
Her comments are in reference to the ongoing battle between Sista Efya, Eno Barony and Freda Rhymz who have been engaged in an exchange of ‘diss tracks’.
The three have set social media literally on fire with their ‘punches’ directed at each other much to the excitement of rap lovers and entertainment watchers.
But the sector Minister, who wasn’t enthused with what is going on, said the ladies ought to be minded about their utterances and content of their song despite admitting that the industry thrives on such engagements.
Barbara Oteng-Gyasi noted, “That is unfortunate. we may be in an industry which thrives on showbiz and acting sometimes out of the norm and all that but we should also be cognisant of the cultural background and the fact that we are women and as women, we are expected to project ourselves in a certain way and that impacts our younger generation.
“So for our women artistes, I will plead with them, there are so many ways that you can project yourself positively and still make the impact that you need in the industry. You don’t need to become notorious in the negative sense.
“We are women, let’s project all that is positive about womanhood and carry our young ones with ones. because you are icons in the industry and you make a lot of impact on the youth” she cautioned.
