DJ Azonto, a Ghanaian DJ turned musician, has defended his choice of clothing, stating that despite facing criticism, it is what enables him to earn a living.
After gaining widespread attention with his hit single “Fa no Fom,” DJ Azonto’s decision to dress in female fashion has become a never-ending hot topic on social media.
Despite the backlash he has received for his unconventional attire, DJ Azonto has boldly announced in a recent interview with Graphic Showbiz that he has no intentions of changing his style anytime soon, as it is his primary source of income.
During the interview, he acknowledged that while many may not agree with his fashion choices, he remains unapologetic, recognizing that it is what puts food on his table and sustains his career.
“As an adult who is a husband and father of three kids, I know the merits and demerits of what I am doing, I can distinguish what is bad from good, so there is no cause for alarm,” he said.
DJ Azonto added that his family are not enthused about his fashion choices either, but he isn’t fazed because he feeds them through the image he has created in showbiz.
“On Mother’s day for instance, I went to my home town to see my mother and she said the only thing she would want me to do for her is to stop wearing female clothings. She also added that even if I don’t want to stop, I should stop using handbags and wearing heels.
“I responded that if she wants to enjoy life by being well catered for, then I have to keep working and this is all part of it.
“I used to wear a brassiere but I stopped, the truth is that my entire family including my wife are not happy with the things I wear but they want money and this brings money,” DJ Azonto said.
