I regret bleaching my skin — Obuoba J.A Adofo

He may have enjoyed all the accolades and attention at the height of his career, but if there is anything that veteran Highlife artiste Obuoba J.A.Adofo has regrets about and cannot forgive himself for, it is bleaching his skin.

According to the man who blessed Ghanaians with great tunes such as Owuo Mpaso, Yaa Boatemaa, Ankwandobi, Kyerema, Odo Pa, Yebede Agoro, City Boys and Mukyea, he was pushed into the act through societal pressure.

“You know at that time, bleaching and having permed, curly hair meant a lot to people who thought they had arrived. As a musician at my peak, I wanted to feel that sense of belonging so I bleached my skin.

“I thought that that way, people would know that I was a big man, but later I regretted my actions having learnt of the complications of bleaching and the consequences people suffered.

“I even found out that it was difficult for surgeries to be performed on bleached skin. Till date, I feel guilty for doing that and really wish I could change the hands of time,” he told Graphic Showbiz after a group known as Lovers of Highlife Music made a donation to him.

Adofo, affectionately known as Black Chinese, also revealed that apart from the medical consequences, he also endured the shame of being seen as not believing in his race.

“As a Highlife artiste promoting my culture through my songs, it was my responsibility to project my roots as a black person but unfortunately, I was swayed by what the masses were doing and I still regret it,” he added.

Moving on to Highlife music, the artiste, who was honored by former President John Kufuor in 2008 for his contribution to Ghana’s music industry, said the genre would not die.

“Any mature person will prefer Highlife music because the words are always food for thought for any person,” he stated.

He also acknowledged that the current crop of musicians was doing well but pointed out that some of the lyrics were not good.

“In my era, before your song was played on radio or anywhere, it wasn’t supposed to be profane, but it appears now everything and just anything is played on air. Also, I think the media is doing well in the promotion of Highlife but can do better, and I want to challenge them to do more,” he stated.

Obuoba Adofo also had some advice for the young acts, urging them to be united. “If you are a Gospel, Reggae, Highlife or Hiplife artiste, we are all one and must understand that we have the same goal of blessing people with our talent.

“So we must work closely and support one another and not feel a genre is superior to another. This is my humble request,” he stated.

Ghanaian media personality and comedienne Afia Schwarzenegger has said that she fell in love with former President John Mahama and not the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

In a studio discussion on UTV ‘United Showbiz monitored by MyNewsGh.com,’ the loudmouth comedienne said she fell in love with the personality of the former President.

When asked by the host Nana Ama Mcbrown why she shuns the NDC to join the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Afia said” I fell in love with John Mahama, not the NDC, I loved the personality of John Mahama because he was the gym type. From Kufour to Attah Mills and now Nana Addo they were all old but Mahama looked energetic and worked out.”

“I switch because I love the policies of the Free SHS by Akufo-Addo and the NPP because my twins enjoyed the policies and if they mess up I will switch,” she added.
