on

The Studio B of TV3 was agog with excitement at the maiden shoot of its riveting dating and reality program, Date Rush. The audience at the studio were treated to a fun filled atmosphere by the bachelors and the 10 intelligent ladies who were desirous of getting a date.

Two eligible bachelors, Edem and Sparkles stepped up to the challenge to wow and rouse the ladies for a date.

Edem was the first to attempt to woo a lady out of the 10 bevy of beauties. However, he got lights turned off by six of the ladies signifying a rejection by them or simply put they were not ready for date with him. He was therefore left with the difficult task of convincing the four remaining ladies for a date. He then had to, through interactions and conversations with the ladies on their hobbies and lifestyles make the difficult decision of taking one of the obviously beautiful ladies for a date.

Sparkles had the difficult task of the two bachelors. He made a rather grand appearance on stage with a dance to the admiration of the date awaiting ladies. He is good looking, affable with a great personality. His dancing and other talents on display had all lights on from the ladies. This means he was in the driving seat since he had all 10 ladies to choose from. The burden now had to shift to the ladies who must display their talent, skill, personality to now convince him to choose one of them for a date. It was a pretty hilarious but difficult sight to behold with the ladies stretching out their hands and doing all in their power to catch the eyes of their potential date. He was finally able to get his date to the admiration of the audience in studio. This, however, was not without drama as one of the ladies burst into tears apparently for not being the lucky one chosen for the date. It was quiet an emotional moment for the audience whose simultaneous reactions was awwwww.

The maiden one-hour show was show on Friday at 20:00 GMT on TV3. The host of the show, Nii Kpakpo Thompson was in his usual joviality elements as he treated viewers to a fun filled night.

The show deals with bachelors who have to impress a panel of ten women through a series of videos about them, followed by the contestant demonstrating a skill. If the ladies like what they see, they keep a light on. If all lights go off, the bachelor goes home alone.

Published

The President of the Creative Arts Industry and entertainment critic, Mark Okraku Mantey, has slammed musicians for always using half naked girls in their music videos.Advertisement

According to Mark, he cannot comprehend why in most music videos, the men are fully covered while the females are practically naked.

He stated that such act is not right adding that musicians must portray the culture of Ghana in their videos and stop showing explicit content.

Mark Okraku Mantey further stated that there should be a system to check such things and how the youth also consume explicit content.

“Most of our videos, you will see the woman half naked and the man fully dressed. It sends a signal that the men are covering themselves and making the women be girls, and it’s not cool.

Sarkodie’s Lucky video, for example, Sarkodie was full dressed-all white but the ladies in Bikini exposing their parts, why?.

We must build our culture. We need to have a system that checks how young people consume sexual content”, Mark Okraku noted.

It is very common to see naked or half-clothed girls in music videos in recent times and musicians claim that such scenes make the video attractive and pleasing to watch.

Some musicians also claim that “sex sells” and having naked girls in their music videos also portrays the beauty of women.
