It is a cardinal rule of journalism that ‘bad news sells’. The media knows it, the audience knows it, and the principal actors (public figures) in news stories themselves know it.
That’s how come some people build entire careers on controversy, you just have to look at Shatta Wale and Donald Trump who only get more successful after doing stupid things.
Ebony is another person who understands that very well, and has so far used the principle to make herself into one of Ghana’s most talked about stars. However, she has been dogged with immense criticism every step of the way.
Last week, she has carried out an album launch where she appeared ‘decently’ dressed, plus performed another show where she did not flash her goodies, and she claims nobody reported on those two events.
Taking to Facebook on Monday, Ebony ‘blasted’ the media for remaining quiet because she didn’t cause any controversy.
“So i had a succesful 16 track album launch on Wednesday 6th at the golden tulip hotel with a splendid live band performance. On Saturday, I organized my first concert at west hills mall, even though it rained thousands of my fans waited for me to perform. Ghanaian media won’t talk about it. They are waiting for me to show my distin before they talk about me. Positive news over negative news #SolokuBonyFiedConcert#RuffTownRecords
