Female singers all over the world have championed or advocated for feminism directly or indirectly through their music.
Great singers like Madonna, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Mary J Blige, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, Rihanna and even in Africa, Mariam Makeba, Brenda Fase and our very own Akosua Agyapong, have several songs which glorify women and how powerful they are.
Ghanaian Afro Pop singer Becca is one female Ghanaian artiste known for projecting the female gender in her songs. Her first and biggest hit song “You Lied to Me” which featured Kwabena Kwabena and her latest hit single “African Woman” tells it all. Becca has always stood for feminism, but Peacefmonline.com can authoritatively confirm that the “Daa ke daa” hit maker has taken the whole women empowerment thing to the level of ‘discriminating’ against her male fans and well-wishers.
Peacefmonline.com investigations reveal that Becca is planning an all-female concert this Christmas for solely her female audience. According to sources, unlike the “Red Lipstick All Female Concert” which allowed both men and women to attend the show, Becca’s event forbids the presence of any man, be it a family member, fan or friend at the auditorium.
IT’S AN ALL-FEMALE AFFAIR.
Of course it has raised several eye brows with some of her male fans quite outrage (and particularly so, since they support her music by buying her CDs), when details of the upcoming concert leaked. Her male followers feel they equally deserve the chance of watching her perform on stage. No wonder some members of the male gender are threatening to buy tickets and storm the venue on that day to watch her perform, ‘ban’ or ‘no ban’.
According to deep throat sources, the said show is Becca’s own event being put together by her management, EKB Records, with support from other female artistes. The event is dubbed “The Becca Girl Talk Live Concert” and it is expected to come off at the National Theatre on Friday, December 23, 2011,.
“No Guys, No Boyfriends, No Men….This Is The Ultimate Girls Night Out”, is the programme’s catch-phrase, and information gleaned by Peacefmonline.com indicates that the show will feature an all-female Production crew including a female Events Director, Producer, female MCs among others.
In an interview with Peacefmonline.com, the sultry singer confirm the event but strongly refuted the accusation that she is discriminating against the opposite sex. Whiles lauding the role of men in her career and the support they have given her, Becca, also stressed that she could not have made it without women.
“We need to unite in thought and in spirit as women. I am just keeping the sisterhood alive and celebrating ourselves because it is not easy to be a woman in this part of the world. We will be sharing our strength whiles we have fun,” Becca said.
Asked if she really believed over 1500 women will be ready to purchase tickets to fill the National Theatre on the said night without the presence of their male ‘chaperons’, the sensational singer replied, “just wait and see how we women do our things. I know the place (National Theatre) will be jam packed with beautiful ladies.”
When Peacefmonline.com prodded for more details about the upcoming event, Becca simply remained tight-lipped saying more information on the event can be sourced from the various commercials being aired on Radio, Television and the other media outlets. She however added that detailed information about the event will be provided at a press conference scheduled to take place soon.
“The only thing I can say is that there will lots of Christmas gifts for everybody who will be present on the night,” Becca stated.
Meanwhile, Peacefmonline.com investigations reveal that Becca intends inviting great female musicians, female politicians, businesswomen, female Doctors, female Lawyers, among others from Ghana, Africa and other parts of the world to grace the occasion, which sources say will be a 2-hour non-stop unforgettable experience.
Becca won two awards at the just ended 4Syte TV Music Video Awards including the ultimate “Best Overall Music Video” award the “Best Female Music Video” awards. With just an album to her credit, Becca has won for herself several awards including: Ghana Music Awards “Album of the Year” for two consecutive times in 2009 and 2010, “Record of the Year” 2009 and 2010 and ‘Best Female Vocal Performance’. Becca also won the ‘Best African Prospect’ at 2010 Kora All Africa Music Awards in Burkina Faso.
