Veteran Highlife musician, Akosua Agyapong has stated she blames artistes managers for the provocative clothes some female artist in the country wear.

Speaking on Success Story on Hitz FM, Akosua Agyapong said the managers when trying to make their artist well known, they encourage them to dress in scanty clothing.

“When I ask some of these artistes why they dress the way they do, they say ‘our managers said we should dress that way so that we will look good and sexy,” she told Mercury Quaye.

Akosua Agyapong explained when celebs keeps dressing in revealing clothes, they become popular alright but in a negative way, “the funny thing is those dresses do not make the popularity last.”

“I have been doing music for 30 years and I did not succumb to any of those but I still have some of the young ones as my fans,” she added.

She stated, “for my first performance at Art Center, the leader of the group that were going to back me up had a bottle of some substance and poured it for them to drink. When it got to my turn, I asked what it was, I was told it will keep the edge off and give me the confidence to perform.”

“What you start with, if God is not by your side, is what you’ll end with, so I refused the drink. If I had taken that drink, I might have gotten addicted to it and take it to perform every time,” she added.

The celebrated Highlife musician said when she began her career, she made a promise to dress well and respect herself “because if you don’t respect yourself, no one will respect you.”

Akosua Agyapong said the artiste should focus more on creating works that will live on even after they are gone.

Many celebs including the late Ebony, Sister Afia, Wendy Shay, Eno Barony, Moesha Budong, Efia Odo and Princess Shyngle have all been condemned on several occasions over the way they dress.

Social media has gone hard in bashing these ladies for not setting a good example for the young ones that look up to.

“Today, most of the songs that people create die after three to four months. Even though the person is still living, the song will just go off air. You should do things that will live long so that when you are gone, we’ll still remember you for it,” she explained.

She added many people will see these artistes and use abusive words on them which in the future will hunt them.

“None of my four girls, can point to my past and tell me I dressed that anyhow so they’re doing same,” she stated.

The singer said some parents have complained to her they are having challenges with their children because whatever they tell the kids, they refer them to the things they did in the past.

“I’m begging the musicians, the actors and actresses, don’t let anybody tell you what to do to become famous or liked. Look in the mirror and tell yourself you are beautiful, advise and encourage yourself because nobody out there will encourage you,” she added.
