Ghanaian singer, Fantana suffered a wardrobe malfunction as she performed over the weekend and she has explained exactly what happened. During the singer’s performance, cameras captured a tissue-like object showing off from her panties, which many believed it was a sanitary pad.

The singer whose sanitary pad did not fit in well into her panties suffered a backlash after the video of her performance went viral. Fantana was slammed by some social media users for not wearing underpants when she knew her dress was skimpy.

The ‘SO WHAT’ singer has issued a press statement to address the issue.

According to Fantana, it was indeed a sanitary pad. She explained that her menses appeared 30 minutes to her performance, therefore, as an empowered woman, she had no option than to get a pad and mount stage.

The “Girls Hate On Hate Girls” singer added that she is not ashamed of menstruating and used the medium to encourage girls not be stopped by their period whilst pursuing their dreams.Menstruation is not a shame and I urge all young women take a cue from my actions and not to let it stop them from doing anything they want to do.” an excerpt of her statement stated.

Earlier on this year I read an article about the persistent harmful socio- cultural norms, stigma and misconception around menstruation which leads to the discrimination of women and girls in some parts of the world In some places, menstruating women continued to be viewed as contaminated impure and are often restricted from engaging in certain activities according to research by experts. The united nations report released on 5th march 2019 quotes ‘ the stigma generated by stereotypes around menstruation have severe impacts on all aspects of women and girls human right’ Despite a lot of awareness going on and efforts by the UNDP to end this discrimination and abuse against young girls and women I was surprised to see some bloggers and a section of the media high light and body shame me because i refused to let my menses stop me from performing when I felt it coming 30 minutes before I went on stage last Saturday at the fantasy dome. Regardless of my costume being transparent, my only option was to put on a sanitary pad and still go ahead to perform. I am a woman and I’m not ashamed of menstruating. I want to urge every woman to resist being discriminated against because of menstruation. I hope some people read wide and learn about menstrual health to stop the stereotype against young girls and women. Yes my menses appeared 30 minutes to my performance and I had to put on a sanitary pad and still go on stage. Menstruation is not a shame and I urge all young women take a cue from my actions and not to let it stop them from doing anything they want to do.
