Highlife Legend, Ben Brako has explained why he shared semi-nude (half naked) photos of himself and his wife on social media.
Over the weekend, the musician broke the internet by sharing a semi-nude photo of himself an wife which reminded us all of the biblical description that the Holy book gives about Adam and Eve.
The 66yr old Mek) Mekrom hitmaker and wife were captured in an xplicit shoot of themselves half naked sharing a warm hug with their most vital parts of their bodies covered with a colorful African cloth.
Mr Brako posted the picture on his facebook account with the caption; “To Kofi Nyarko and others who only”
But Ben Brako after his post has been criticized as not setting a good example for the youth and as expected he has responded.
According to the highlife legend, the photos were just to portray Ghana’s heritage in a tasty setting. In his rebuttal he said,
“Since some people have not followed the sequence of events that led to me posting the picture of myself and wife in an intimate pose. First I posted a beautiful picture of my wife in a classy traditional pose, somebody suggested that I was exploiting the feminism of my wife and that I should post a shot of myself in a similar setting. I obliged only because I wanted it known that I am comfortable in myself to project images that reflect my heritage in a tasty setting, let me clear.”
“In an era where we are fixed or we are so mixed up in our mentality that we accept English as our national language, where our national anthem is an English song with English lyrics, where our people are obliged to dress as foreigners to work and play, it is important that someone stands out to declare that our heritage and culture has an important place in our national discourse and should have the pride of praise in our lives, this I am doing in my own way which I am comfortable with.”
Ben Brako added that he is an African man hence the photos he shared were just to portray the heritage and culture of Ghana, concluding his defence he added that all who disapprove of what he has done can ‘burn the sea’.
