Nigerian music legend and activist, Onyeka Onwenu, has decried the spate of nudity and indecency in music videos of songs released by younger artistes in the country.
She expressed her disdain at the manner in which ladies today allow themselves to be paraded on TV in sultry apparels, in a recent chat with Hip TV.
Onwenu, who was an erstwhile Executive Director of the National Centre for Women Development, however, expressed hope that as today’s artistes grow older, they will experience a change which will transform their lifestyle and their music.
She said: “I feel sad when I watch and see all these videos that should not be shown.
“I hate what they are doing to the women. I hate what the women are doing to themselves – allowing themselves to play such roles.
“But I am consoled by one thing; the young shall grow. You can start-off singing all these nonsense and shaking ‘bum-bum’ and all that. But there comes a time in your life when you realize that there is more to life and that that talent that is given to you is meant for greater things, and that is when you have that switch.
“So, I am watching all these new artistes and hoping that at some point in their lives – in their young lives, they will come to that realization.”
