Chief Executive Officer of Drumline Studios, Justice Oteng, has welcomed a statement by the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) against the incessant use of profane lyrics in songs.

Wei Ye Oteng, as he is widely known in showbiz circles, has asserted that the use of profane lyrics in songs needs to be controlled as it impacts negatively on the listener.

“I’m finally glad that this has come to play. When I read the statement, I asked, ‘what have we been waiting for?’ It’s been long overdue… But where does this thing start from? It first of all has to start with the people themselves. Where are you coming from? What target do you have? How do you see your future like? We’ve corrupted our language and now the people growing up think it is right… Lumba sings profane than anyone else but you can listen to his song and won’t notice it,” he said on Pluzz FM’s AM Pluzz.

The statement signed by President of the Union, Bice Osei Kuffour, otherwise known as Obour, urged musicians to put together lyrics which can have positive a impact on the listener than one punctuated with profanity.

“The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) has noted with concern, the rising incidence of profane lyrics in songs released by Ghanaian musicians. This current trend is particularly disturbing considering the fact that these songs are played without any radio edits on primetime radio and given wide currency on social media.

“In that regard, the Union is calling on musicians and song writers in Ghana to desist from writing songs with profane lyrics. As much as the Union appreciates the creative liberties of song writers to freely express themselves, it is essential that artistes appreciate the impact of their songs on the public especially in an era where technology has made it relatively easier for songs to be heard,” portions of the statement read.

The union further called on the National Media Commission (NMC) to check such songs which are sometimes played on air during primetime. It also asked media houses to do well to ensure that such practises are discouraged.
