Throughout the Liberian history, there’s a solid belief that music is supposed to bring joy, heal and soothe the mind, body, and soul. In the West, most comedians are known for making controversial statements and Quincy T is no exception.
In a recent Facebook posting, the comedian writes: “To my small brothers & sons that are Liberian artists; music has no borders. Let’s write & sing songs about relationships, love, nature etc…but the songs coming out in recent times, the lyrics are not ‘soo’ good to the hearing of other young artists coming after you; especially in singing about your girls/Liberian ladies. eg: I want eat something, you say you want knock me down but I will eat you first, I na eat the jue already then you say da your serious jue. Are we promoting or degrading our Liberian women?”
Minutes after his post, reactions were very swift. While the veteran comedian was widely lauded for his comments on this sensitive subject, others accused him of double standards.
“This man has told profane jokes on radio before. How can he be a player and referee at the same time?” Marty Kamara questions.
Quincy T is a Liberian comedian who has the ability to easily provoke flurries of arguments on Facebook inserting his overall views on Liberian social issues using one-liner jokes. But as a veteran comedian who is wittily cool, few can touch what he has managed to accomplish in this business.
He challenged Liberian musicians to do more meaningful love songs and called on disc jockeys to request for radio-edited versions so as to avoid explicit content playing on our airwaves to the surprise of some listeners especially the little children.
