Ayo Orobiyi, a folk-singer and writer has condemned nudity and other obnoxious appearances in most contemporary musical-videos being produced and sold in the country.
Orobiyi, leader of Adunni Nefertiti; a five-woman-folk singer, told the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Lagos that indigenous musicians should be cautioned against these oddities.
She said that they should, rather, see themselves as role models to the youths and the up-and-coming musicians; and hence, cultivate decent dress-code.
According to her, a good music must teach and preach morals that can be learnt by the listeners and add value to the society at large.
‘’ These morals should be channelled toward healing the ills of the society,’’ she said.
Orobiyi said that she delved into the folkloric music because it was teaching African traditional and local stories, cultures and morals.
She said that at this age of moral decadence, artistes ought to present evergreen records and not obscene ones that would not stand the test of time.
Orobiyi urged the Federal Government to rescue the youths from these social vices which he said were becoming the vogue through appropriate legislation. NAN
