It has been nearly a month since the Ghana Vodafone Music Awards (VGMA) took place, but Highlife musician Kwabena Kwabena is still facing criticism for his choice of attire at the event.
Despite the backlash, Kwabena Kwabena remains unapologetic and continues to defend his fashion style.
On the event night, the Aso hitmaker donned a wine-colored wide-neck top with flared long sleeves made from a ruffled fabric, paired with colorful bell-bottom trousers featuring zips running from the knees downwards.
While some critics accused him of going too far with his outfit, suggesting it appeared too feminine, others even went as far as labeling him gay and a member of the LGQBTI+ community.
In response to the criticism, Kwabena Kwabena has described his critics as miserable individuals who require prayers if they find fault with his clothing.
According to Kwabena Kwabena, as long as one is not naked, everyone is entitled to wear whatever pleases him or her.
In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, he questioned why anyone should have an issue with his outfit.
He explained that his outfit was inspired by fashion trends from the 70s.
He additionally pointed out that if iconic figures like James Brown dressed in a similar manner during that era, he sees no reason why he cannot do the same now.
Kwabena Kwabena asserted that the perception others have of him will not deter him from continuing to dress in a way that brings him happiness.
In his own words;
“Everyone is entitled to what he or she wants to wear so far as you are not naked so I don’t understand why anyone should have a problem with my dressing. It is better to keep quiet rather than to comment on something you don’t know anything about.
My outfit that night was inspired by what trended in the 70s. If the likes of James Brown were dressing this way back then, why can’t I do same now” he queried.
