Mildred Ashong known in showbizness circles as Eazzy the first lady has touched on how the media with people in the industry and how pretentious they can be with them. According to her, it as bad and often times, they are chastised for the same reason that they would praise foreigners for.
In an interview with Lexis Bill, the Wengeze hitmaker said; “We like to hide behind the whole African culture yet still we like certain things. I feel artistes in Ghana should be allowed to explore and do what they are comfortable with.”
She adds that Ebony and Mzbel were shamed and chastised for the same things that they would readily praise and honour Beyonce’s and Rihanna’s for.
“Sometimes the media penalises us a lot and we can use that in relation to the late Dancehall artiste Ebony Reigns. They were not very nice with certain things concerning her meanwhile they went behind and enjoyed her music and shows a lot.
“Mzbel was also very enlightened and ahead of our time. I watched her outfits when I was growing up and it was nice because I watched Beyonce and the likes of Jennifer Lopez do it but people penalise us so much,” she said.
