Hiplife musician, Kontihene, has expressed his disappointment in Bice Osei Kufour (Obour), President of Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), over a statement he issued which suggested that musicians desist from the use of profane lyrics.

In a statement released on Wednesday, the union urged Ghanaian musicians to put together lyrics which can have a positive impact on the listener than one punctuated with profanity.

The union further called on the National Media Commission (NMC) to check such songs which are sometimes played on air during primetime.

The statement also asked media houses to do well to ensure that such practices are discouraged by not giving it rotation.

In response to the statement, Kontihene rather asked Obour to apologise to Ghanaians over the profane lyrics he used in his songs when he reached the pinnacle of his music career.

In an interview with Pulse.com.gh, Kontihene, stated that “Every artiste has his own followers and the kind of music his followers understand. Music is a medium through which artistes communicate to their audience. There are certain audience who understand certain kinds of languages and there are others who don’t tolerate such languages. So if the artiste is comfortable (with his lyrics), then his fans  will also understand him best. If they communicate through music and certain languages, I don’t have a problem with it.”

Speaking about why Obour should apologise for his popular song “Konkontiba”, the “Dedeede” hit make disclosed that, the MUSIGA president has no right to condemn the act since he once indulged in it and has not rendered an apology for that.

“Obour should come out and apologise to Ghanaians about “Konkontiba” because of the kind of (profane) words he used in the track. Before talking about profane music in the industry, he should first come and apologise.

“I think morally, Obour is not fit to condemn any profane song. He championed a profane song and he succeeded so at this time, he should enjoy his tenure in office, loot all the money he can and after his tenure, we can sit down and talk about profane songs. For now, he is not fit to talk about profane song,” he told Pulse.com.gh

Meanwhile, Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, has also come out to react to the statement. According to him, the statement is a “total disgrace”. He further stated that, MUSIGA should rather be educating musicians on how best to be in business instead of focusing on profanity in music.
