Is Sister Deborah’s 'Uncle Obama' proving too controversial?

“It has nothing to do with the president, no and nothing to do with politics. I know he (Obama) is a cool person and I don’t expect him to get offended. But if he is offended in anyway, I do apologize. It’s not about him.” Deborah Vanessa Owusu-Bonsu aka Sister Deborah



I’ve been blogging at Ghana Rising for just over three years -and most of you have worked out that ……what I choose to leave off La Blog is sometimes more powerful than what I choose to blog about!!!

And Deborah Vanessa Owusu-Bonsu aka Sister Deborah’s mega hit, 'Uncle Obama' is no exception!!!

That I chose not put Ghana Rising fave and uber fashion icon/ socialite, Sister Deborah’s mega hit, 'Uncle Obama' on La Blog is very telling!!!

Its not that I don’t like said fashionista, no way, because I still think Ms Owusu-Bonsu is pretty fabulous but …..I’m a big fan of President Obama and find said tune -somewhat disrespectful….

Still….'Uncle Obama' is proving very popular (it is very catchy after all) -and its somewhat risqué, nudge-nudge-wink-wink verve is proving very controversial … much so that….CNN felt the need to call Sister Deborah -to find out more about said song and the meaning behind the lyrics…

….I don’t know, but I feel….Sister Deborah handled herself very well on CNN (above) …… What do you think?

  1. Sure she did. She obviously wasn't talking about Obama. But she hasn't said if the lyrics are to be taken literally or there's something else. It sounds like a nursery rhyme but if you play it a few times u may find yourself repeating it against your wishes x_x
