DEFINITION OF SHOW BUSINESS?
I grew up learning under the feet of Efua T. Sutherland, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings, Grace Omaboe and Joyce Agyapong among others. My contemporaries are Gloria Ofori, Lys Hayfron Asare, Naana Dansoa, Kwame Sefa kayi, Edinam Atatsi and Mawuli Semevo.
Internationally Phylicia Rashad (Claire Hustible), Oprah Winfrey, Miriam Makeba, Angelique Kidjo, Anima Misa and many others were already in show business.
There was also Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Naomi Campbell and Madonna.
I have been in Show business for nearly 30 years. Most of the people listed here were also in show business.
You can tell who had grooming and cared about their image and what they stood for. There are also some who were “Edgier” than most.
Don’t, out of ignorance, paint everyone In show business as you would Rihanna, who by the way, I am not a fan of. If you think because you are in show business you have a license to walk around with your boobs popping out of your dress and short enough not to make us curious, that is your understanding.
It is not the case that because you are in show business you can wear anything without considering the cultural setting.
Yes by all means express yourself in thought and in deed. But, do not forget your freedom and rights are not created in a vacuum.
..and by the way, how do you expect us to know when you are acting and when you are not acting, when every space for you is a stage.
