Dr Richardson Commey Fio, the Director for Policy Planning, Research, Monitoring and Evaluation at the National Commission on Culture (NCC), expressed strong disapproval of profane songs. He cited them as a catalyst for the increasing prevalence of unethical behaviors in society.
In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, Dr Commey highlighted the recent trend of musicians producing morally offensive tunes. He further expressed a firm stance against tolerating such music.
He emphasized that society tends to adopt the behaviors it is exposed to, and the content of music can significantly influence people’s actions. Dr Commey added that immoral songs lead to a decline in moral standards.
The NCC has expressed concern over the abundance of songs and musical content that fails to promote positive human behavior. Dr Commey questioned whether music is being created solely for the sake of it or if it is being utilized to address behavioral issues in society.
He urged parents and music consumers to be mindful of the music their children listen to. He also emphasized that music can shape their behavior, either positively or negatively.
Additionally, Dr Commey called upon music associations to collaborate with their members in discouraging the creation of immoral songs.
The NCC has initiated a campaign to secure funding from external sources. It aims to educate artists nationwide about the significance of their creativity in the industry’s growth.
