Dr. Richardson Commey Fio, Director for Policy Planning, Research, Monitoring and Evaluation at the National Commission on Culture (NCC), has condemned the production of profane songs, which he says are contributing to rising unethical behaviors in society.
In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, Dr. Commey said he had observed a trend in recent years of musicians writing songs with morally offensive lyrics. He said this was unethical and undermined the proper values of the country.
“The NCC has noticed with worry the influx of songs and other musical contents that don’t promote positive human behavior,” Dr. Commey said. “The question that arises is, ‘Are we doing music for its own sake, or are we using our creativity to address behavioral issues in our society?'”
Dr. Commey said that music has the power to influence people’s behavior, and that the content of music can contribute to falling moral standards. He urged musicians to use their creativity to promote positive messages, and he urged parents to be mindful of the kind of music their children listen to.
Dr. Commey also said that the NCC is working to raise money to educate musicians about the value of their creativity to the growth of the industry. He said that the NCC hopes to work with music associations to reduce the production of profane songs.
Dr. Commey’s comments have sparked a debate about the role of music in society. Some people agree with Dr. Commey that music can have a negative impact on behavior, while others believe that music is simply a reflection of society and that it is not responsible for people’s actions.
The debate is likely to continue, but Dr. Commey’s comments have brought attention to the potential impact of music on society. It is important for musicians, parents, and consumers of music to be aware of the power of music and to use it responsibly.
