GHone’s Digital Marketing Strategist, Kelly Nii Lartey Mensa has taken a swipe at Kidi for his current hit Send Me Nudes. According to him, the song promotes crime. Besides, it corrupts our heritage as Ghanaians too.
Saying this, he expressed that Ghana as a country has lost its culture. If not so, Kidi would not have had the chance to sing an explicit song on a public event live on TV, worldwide. Thus, during the just held VGMA 2021 Awards, Kidi performed the song at the event.
“If we hadn’t lost our culture, Kidi will never have had the chance to sing an explicit song on a public event live on TV, streaming worldwide.”
In February this year, 2021, Ghana passed a new law to punish persons that publish indecent images especially about children and women on the internet.
The law under the country’s Cybersecurity Act 2020 seeks to erase the culture of capturing and distributing sexual images of people.
“Sending of nudes is a crime in Ghana and he sang openly to encourage it at a public event beaming to millions.”
With the need for #fixthecountry to undo the harm that has brought the country’s economy to the state it is now, Nii Lartey Mensa called for Ghana to #fixthemusic as well because he believes the contents of music in modern times is robbing us of our decent cultural heritage.
“Indeed, we are using music to cause permanent corruption in our heritage. #fixthemusic.”
However, amidst all the discussions of his page, another commentator argued in favour of Kidi.
He said that the law doesn’t criminalize sending of nudes, but rather when you circulate or publish it openly. After all, you can’t tell lovers not to send sexy shots of themselves to each other. But it becomes a crime if one shares it in the public domain and circulate it.
