Few days ago, a video of Sista Afia’s performance at the just ended #YfmAreaCodesJam in Ghana’s second capital city Kumasi went viral.The video, which captured Sista Afia kissing 3 male fans on stage during her performance, has been making headlines and attempts to reach Sista Afia or any member in her team regarding her performance on stage has been to no avail.
However, the PR for StreamLine Records and acting manager for Sista Afia, Bossu Kule, says the singer may have done that out of so much excitement or perhaps to save the show from its boring state.
He said:”We never planned for her to be kissing on stage but as an entertainer, we need to understand what she did from that aspect. According to our representatives who traveled with her to perform that day, various circumstances occurred that left the crowd bored and dull. There were various performances by some male musicians before Sista Afia, yet, the crowd weren’t active. Sista Afia being an ‘up-comer’ and the only female musician for the show didn’t know how to deliver for the patrons so she had to keep them in the hyper state while on stage.
“If you should watch the video captured by Ebenezer Donkoh, you can tell that, Sista Afia was so excited to hear the fans respond to her song and sing along with her. Who can blame her because just like the feeling any up and coming musician gets seeing people in different cities adoring their music, Sista Afia is no different from them. Tell you what, right after her performance, everyone at the venue was in a better mood.
The PR for StreamLine Records also promised the management team for Sista Afia would try to avoid such awkward situations in future. “I do accept the fact that, morally, it wasn’t right for her to have done that. On behalf of the entire Streamline Records, we do apologize for exceeding her limit on stage. We promise to make sure nothing of that sort ever happens from our camp,”Bossu Kule said.
