Ghanaian songstress, Yaa Yaa, has replied to a suggestion recently proffered to her by actress and television personality Nana Ama Mcbrown.
On the back of complaints that her works have not received enough attention from the media, Nana Ama McBrown advised that she should show a bit of skin in order to gain more visibility.
“One thing I know about Yaa Yaa is that she believes in tradition. One thing I will tell her is that she can be herself in her personal life but for her craft, she needs to exaggerate a bit. She needs to do more of her videos. She should not go nude but when it becomes necessary to show a little bit of flesh, she should do it. It is all part of the job,” she said in an interview with Naa Ashorkor on Asaase Radio.
However, speaking to Kwame Dadzie on Citi FM’s ‘Celebrity Radar’, Yaa Yaa said in as much as she appreciates Mcbrown’s advice, she believes in driving her career with her talent and not with her skin.
“I believe in what I carry, and I believe there are a lot of young people who have amazing gifts, amazing talents, whether male or female. I don’t think anybody would have to be pushed to use their skin to sell their music. It is a game of talent, it is a game of ability. So that is what our focus should be on,” she noted.
Yaa Yaa, a few weeks ago, after her coruscating performance at the 3Music Women’s Brunch, lambasted the general public for not acknowledging what she did.
She said if it were negative news, it would have traveled faster than expected.
Yaa Yaa, an alumna of Stars of the Future has earned her place in the music industry as one of the finest vocalists in the country.
She released her maiden album titled ‘Agoo’ last year. The album has songs such as ‘Mmusuo’ which tackles domestic abuse.Other songs on the album include ‘Kɔkɔɔkɔ’, ‘No Gin’, ‘Time will heal us all’, ‘Kɔɔyɔ,’ Kɔnkɔnsa’ feat. Fra!, ‘No Running’, ‘E be money’ and ‘Back to You.’
