Lord Paper who recently gained public notoriety with the release of his sexually explicit video titled Awurama has come out to apologise to Ghanaians for the release of promo pictures for a new song titled, Pono. 

One of the pictures which were released earlier this week features a nude Lord Paper in a hug with an equally nude female.

 The audio for Pono was released on Monday without the much-expected accompanying music video which left many fans asking questions. 

In an interview with Showbiz on Tuesday, Lord Paper said the explicit music video for Pono had been shot and was all set to be launched but had to be called off due to pressure and advice from his family.

In an earlier interview with Showbiz about two weeks ago, Lord Paper, real name, Michael Takyi Frimpong, assured Ghanaians that he would be releasing a sequel to Awurama which would be even more explicit than the first video but it now appears this is no longer the case. 

Lord Paper said he had been advised by his family to tone-down the sexually explicit content in his music for the sake of public decency. 

“I wish I could depict everything as real as I want but as it stands, I am a Ghanaian and I have been told I am going against the moral fabric of the country. 

“ I have to listen to my family and this was the reason I decided not to release the video for Pono as planned,” he said.

“This does not mean I would not be releasing any hot videos; for instance if I sing about sex, the video will depict this but it would be watered down. I will no longer release any video as explicit as Awurama,” he said. 

Lord Paper said the video for Pono would be released much later but without explicit scenes.
