Hafiz tells Showbiz in an interview that even though he needed the money badly, he rejected it because shooting porn movies is not his style.
 
“I don’t want my brand to be associated with just anything. Honestly, that money would have helped me a lot but my aim is to project GH. artistes with good quality music videos and not porn,”
he said.

Another thing that has surprised him in all this is how much some Ghanaian ladies are actually ready to shoot porn movies knowing our culture does not accept that.
 

Hafiz also criticised some Ghanaian artistes for not investing in their own but rather employ the services of foreign music video directors.

“It saddens my heart when I see some Ghanaian artistes go to Nigeria and South Africa to get video directors to work on their music videos when there are equally good or even better film directors in Ghana.

The Ghanaian directors are better than some of these foreign directors who take huge sums of money and don’t even deliver,”
he said.
