Ghanaian-British recording artiste Fuse ODG has admonished colleague artistes to promote Africa in their music videos.
Fuse ODG who successfully held his maiden Tina Festival and climaxed it with Kente Party at the round pavillion of the Trade Fair centre in Accra made this statement in an interaction with the media.
“Our music videos need to come from a self-love perspective and our women need to be represented. It is our responsibility to showcase our women in our videos because they are beautiful. I recently shot a music video and i had dark-skinned women in it because they are usually overlooked and that is because of the western beauty standards”.
The award-winning artiste who has been using his music and influence to promote Ghana and Africa also added that it is the responsibility of artistes to showcase African women and culture to the rest of the world.
“We as artistes have a responsibility to showcase our women in our videos the way we see them because Ghanaian women are beautiful and we need to showcase them. Ghana in itself is beautiful and we need to showcase it”.
The Kente Party which climaxed the Tina Festival saw performances from artistes from Ghana and the Diaspora. UK artiste Stefflon Don, British rapper Lethal Bizzle, Sarkodie, Kuami Eugene and Kidi took turns to perform at the show.
Other artistes that mounted the stage to perform were Skepta, Joey B, Pappy Kojo and Feli Nuna.
