|Rising Ghanaian superstar Raquel Ammah has said she simply does not care what type or style of clothes she puts on to public performances and also does not give a damn about reports that she showed her naked vagina during a performance in Accra last December.
NEWS-ONE recently reported that it had photographs of the naked hairy vagina of a very well-known Ghanaian female musician while she was performing on stage at the Accra International Conference Centre during the Christmas season.
Though the paper withheld the name of the said female musician, other media houses speculated a couple of names including that of Raquel's.
However, when NEWS-ONE decided to publish the naked photographs to end the speculations, the paper came under pressure from civil society, various groups and leading individuals in society to back down on its decision.
Ransford Tetteh, President of the Ghana journalists Association, Ambassador Kabral Blay-Amihere, Chairman of the National Media Commission (NMC), the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), former National Women's Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Daavi Ama, News Editor of Peace FM, Issa Monnie and Rev. Opambour Adarkwa Yiadom of the Ebenezer Miracle Worship Center were among several persons who pleaded with NEWS-ONE not to publish the said photographs.
Interestingly, Raquel's attitude to the entire episode makes nonsense of the persons and groups who called for a ceasefire on further publications.
“[This whole thing] is funny; it's just a big joke. I don't pay any mind to it and I have fans out there that don't pay mind to it. My only interest is my music and not what I wear or eat…There is never going to be a day where they are not going to say anything about a musician,” Raquel told Joy FM.
She added: “Nothing has changed, Raquel is still the same. I am still the same person. To my fans, there is no need to get offended because at the end of the day you are probably going to hear stuff about me every day but it is up to you to choose whether you believe it or you don't believe it.”
The UK -born Ghanaian songstress, Raquel, is currently lacing her boots for today's ‘Raquel Live on the Dodi Princess' which would be held on the Dodi Princess Cruise boat on the Volta Lake.
Meanwhile, there is a raging debate on whether or not NEWS-ONE should still go ahead and publish the photographs.
The said female musician mounted the stage of the Accra International Conference Center, dressed to kill, in a very sexy evening wear, with entirely no panties beneath. No panties means no panties, underwear, no slacks, no beads, just her naked hairy vagina.
During her performance, she positioned herself in such a way that the paper's cameras captured her sex organ which might also have been seen by a good section of the audience, especially those on the front row. It was quite sizeable, chubby, dark and hairy but appealing.
This is the second time NEWS-ONE's cameras have captured a top Ghanaian female celebrity at a public event without underwear.
The first was at a press conference of an all-female concert that was held a few months ago and one of the artistes at the conference sat in a way that exposed her naked sex organ.
What is not yet certain is whether, in the latest case, the musician deliberately used her naked sex organ as part of her stagecraft or she was doing something else back stage which could not give her enough time to put on her panties.
