First impressions they say, last long and musician Lord Paper is struggling to show Ghanaians his “other” side after he made his debut in the music industry with nude video for his song “Awurama”.
Even though the singer has come out to declare he has given his life to Christ, people are finding it difficult to believe him.
In, July, the “Fameye” singer, born Michael Takyi-Frimpong, visited the founder and leader of the Perez Chapel international, Bishop Charles Agyin-Asare for prayers and decided to cut off on nudity.
Speaking in an interview on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM with Andy Dosty, the musician revealed that some people, including radio stations, have refused to play his new songs, which are gospel.
According to him, the situation is so bad that his manager had to fight someone at a radio station in Kumasi because, he was described as a ‘porn star’.
When asked why he decided to turn a new leaf, he revealed that his mother had to step in to put him on the right track.
“It was a discussion between me and my mum. She likes my music”. Lord Paper added that his mother said, ‘your message is positive but you are not portraying that kind of positivity in you to people so you need to do something about it’.”
Lord Paper said he decided to heed to his mother’s advice and do something about that negative image by recording some gospel songs.
The singer is however worried because people are refusing to take him seriously. Lord Paper stressed that he is a new man and is urging the general public to accept his new personality.
His latest single is titled “Fameye”.
