It is an insult – Stella Aba Seal slams ‘disrespectful’ Obaapa Christy

While reprimanding her younger colleague, Obaapa Christy, for trespassing, seasoned gospel singer Stella Aba Seal has issued a warning to all parties involved in the gospel ministry to refrain from exploiting her image to market their events without her prior approval.

According to the celebrated singer who is famed for songs including ‘Gyem Taataa’ and ‘Okura Yen Mu’, she will take on anybody who flouts her directive.

“This goes to all stakeholders, pastors, bishops, archbishops, programme organizers, choirs, whoever you are. Do not put my picture on a flyer without my permission,” she said.

Obaapa Christy was recently criticized by Stella Steal in a Facebook post for ‘luring’ music fans to her 20th anniversary event by utilizing her. Stella Seal, who was furious, claimed that Obaapa Christy’s choice to use her without her consent on an official flyer was an insult.

In an interview with Ola Michael on OKAY FM, Stella added that certain musicians won’t attend Obaapa Christy’s event because they had other commitments on the same date, highlighting the fact that they also didn’t give their permission to organizers.

“I was even outside the country, just imagine a grown woman like me who has laid the foundation for you. I just said that I didn’t know anything about it so I have taken myself out of it. I never said her programme was fake. That particular flyer, Tagoe Sisters who has been advertised has a show on the same day at Akosombo.

“Personally, it is an insult, it is an insult to put me on a ticketed show without my concern. You are taking money and deceiving my lovers. Someone will purposely attend the programme because they want to hear my timeless songs or Daughters of Glorious Jesus and Tagoe Sisters. We the older generation of singers have a different clientele and just imagine them coming to the show and feeling disappointed because they didn’t see us. You lied to the public and it will go bad against me. I am speaking for myself…I, Yaa Henewaa, do not like that,” she warned.

On suggestions that Obaapa Christy’s intention was to honour her at the event, the veteran, without mincing words, said the approach was repugnant, to say the least.

“What the hell! How can you celebrate your veterans and be this rude and disrespectful?” she fumed with rage.
