Bubbly dancehall artiste, Ebony Reigns, has become a household name in Ghana both the good and bad reasons. If you like, she’s the female version of Shatta Wale because of how she manoeuvre her ways to trend in our Ghanaian ShowbiZ industry.
Ebony Reigns is out with a banging tune barley five months ago titled, “Sponsor” with so many controversies. While some are of the view that the song is nothing but creativity at its best, some thought otherwise.
If you could remember, TV3 network censored some portion of the aforementioned song they deem it explicit. The controversial part of the song says; “me nkɔ te a ɛyɛ me” to wit, “he said it is paining me”. This, “me nkɔ te a ɛyɛ me”, according to some crop of music lovers in the country instigates promiscuity and that the song should not be played on both radio and television.
However, Baffour Kyei, veteran Highlife musician known for the hit songs “Adwoa Bene” ft B. B Collins and “Mɛkɔ Ama Obi Aba” ft Prof K. Gyan has jump into the defense of the misinterpreted portion of Ebony’s smash hit titled, “Sponsor”.
In a conversation with Adu Sarpeah/Ghbase.com, he stated that “me nkɔ te a ɛyɛ me” as used by Ebony is nothing but metaphorical display of wordplay. To him, Ebony Reigns deserves an applause for such an intelligent wordplay or better still pun.
“Ebony was making reference to his husband who happens to be a womanizer. So, after messing himself with other women, he comes back to the house at night and fails to service her (Ebony) because of the workload resulting in waist pains. This has nothing to do with genital pains as most Ghanaians have misinterpreted the metaphorical use of the Ghanaian language (Twi) employed by Ebony”, he quizzed.
According to Baffour Kyei, there’s nothing profane about the song. He justified his assertion by admonishing old men to desist from going after young ladies. Similarly, young ladies should stop the ‘sugar daddy’ movement if they desire to have sexual satisfaction in their love life. He added that, men should be faithful to their partners so that women can enjoy the oldest institution on earth; marriage.
Baffour Kyei recently released a sensational Highlife song dubbed, “Ɔtan Hunu”.
