Minnie Marj has taken a stand against Maheeda, with a 556-worded open letter which criticizes her nudity, musical artistry, lack of lyrical content, and above all her refusal to conform to Nigerian societal values. Read the full letter below.
UK-based radio & TV presenter, Minnie Marj, has published an open letter to popular risqué singer, and self-acclaimed Naija Bad Girl, Maheeda.
A former gospel artiste, Maheeda, who re-invented herself last year, and invaded the Nigerian entertainment industry with a series nude and semi-nude photos, last week went a step further by releasing an X-rated video. The new video is aptly titled ‘Naija Bad Girl’, and shows multiple scenes of a nude Maheeda. One particular scene seemed to suggest that she was engaged in oral sex with an extra.
Minnie Marj has taken a stand against it though, with a 556-worded open letter which criticizes her nudity, musical artistry, lack of lyrical content, and above all her refusal to conform to Nigerian societal values. Read the full letter below.
Yeah it is about that time where I grab my laptop in order to do something that I am very passionate of: Writing and sharing my point of view.
Nope, its not about a big celebrity that misbehaved in one way or another. It is about this music video that is currently trending. That naked Lady showcasing her seduction skills rather than the usual dope, off the chain 16 BARS that we always expect a rapper to do, goes by the name of Maheeda.
This video is stirring up much controversy , due to Maheeda’s na_ked self frolicking around for some overly-hormonal Gentlemen who seem to enjoy the spectacle. It’s a shame nobody will actually really listen to the song and rate this artist according to her musical skills.
Aren’t musicians supposed to deliver vocally or lyrically? Lyrically speaking there are no punch lines in thissession. Sentences such as : Never find me in Okada…Me I break a leg BUT you break nothing…If you think sey you spoil Me I don rotten…
I’m a bad girl don’t need to be told … Ema Dami Duro… (No worries we aren’t trying to stop you) And the listgoes on and on…. I actually closed my eyes because I wanted to listen to the song and give credits where it is due but in this case I will have to pass.
Credits will go to the Beat maker for a nice beat and the director for a nice video. My opinion would be different if we had a special Adult Channel where this music video and other hard_core films would be pitched to.
This is the reality and we have none of this yet on our TV channels based in Africa.
So what is Maheeda’s market actually? Who is she targeting with her visuals? Does she intend to always drop her videos on Youtube? I guess this video would probably be banned from Media houses unless they re-edit the Clean Version because the existing Clean Version isn’t really Clean to be honest with you. I am not judging anything here but please bear in mind that I am just speaking from a professional point of view.
America would love and adore this video but this is Mama Africa. Ain’t Nobody got time for that?!? Well the statistics say something else: 7K +views for the Clean version and 50K + views for the Explicit version. What happened to the Born Again musician?? Temptations,Temptations…. I would call this a Reverse Reaction aka RR.
This is what happens when you slightly believe that something will change your life because someone told or convinced you that it will do so and NOT because you deeply had the faith that it will BE so. It is not easy to keep the faith especially when times are hard. You are a true Born Again If You survive all tests God puts you through with a bigger faith than you had before.
I don’t even want to discuss about the pyramid symbol she is dancing in.I know loads of you have concluded already but please give her the benefit of doubt. To everybody out there, please make sure you really become born again because you are ready for a change and not because someone told you that you have to change.
Cogito Ergo Sum. I’m out.
Do you think Minnie Marj is right to critic Maheeda? Tell us what you think!
