Gospel musician, Ohemaa Mercy has added her voice to a call by the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) entreating musicians and songwriters to avoid the use of profane lyrics in their songs.

The union after noting with concern, the incessant of profane lyrics in songs, released a statement signed by President of the Union, Bice Osei Kuffour, otherwise known as Obour, which urged musicians to put together lyrics which can have positive impact on the listener.

“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.
