If there are no women in your videos, I frown at it - Ikpe
Nigeria Music Video Awards, NMVA, will come alive again on December 17, 2015 at the Eko Hotel and Suites for the ninth year in a row. In what promises to be a night of fun, music and dance, Ghanaian actress, Jackie Appiah, and Nigerian humour merchant, Okey Bakassi, have been unveiled as hosts.
According to the initiator of the award, Cally Ikpe, this year’s theme is “A world without violence,’ seeks to preach peace.
When asked his opinion on flaunting women, money and luxury in music videos, Cally said as a matter of fact, “if there are no women in your videos, I frown at it. I like to see women in videos because it makes the video more interesting. It makes the world complete.
“Women are like flowers, colourful creatures. But what we frown at is using such videos to disrespect and denigrate the women, making them appear like they are just toys to play with. You can show off a woman’s sexiness without disrespecting her.
