Controversial Hiplife artiste, Sidney has confirmed to reports that he had to change his earlier outfit 10 minutes to his performance on TV3?s Music Music last Saturday, September 13, due to a ?ban on camouflage-like outfits worn by civilians? directive from the Defense Ministry the media house had received.

According to Sidney, ?I was told by the producer of the show, Iso Pele 10 minutes before my performance that I cannot mount stage in the camouflage jeans trouser and cap attire which had earlier been spotted by some patron at the grounds.?

?I wore the camouflage attire because my motive was to advocate, combat and also, educate patrons as well as viewers at home on the deadly virus, Ebola as the lead spear of the UN-Weah Project which took off last month but unfortunately, I had to change my outfit due to the producer?s order and frankly, I felt very uncomfortable in the changed outfit,? he lamented in an interview with GhanaWeb.

The ?Ayeka? singer indicated ?not just the patrons at the show were surprised at the big baggie jeans I wore; I received quite a number of interesting calls from close pals who kept lamenting on the changed attire.

I felt very uncomfortable wearing those outfit making me pull them up that often besides, they did not fit into my motive for the night hence, the kind of ?slow? interactive performance on the night as well as presenting my brief education on the Ebola virus which has been the bane in the world in recent times,? he lamented.

?With this directive from the Defense Ministry which is to restrain every civilians from wearing and also, ?tainting? the worth of its uniform; what happens to we artistes who need to be artistic and creative enough to send our messages across to the masses should the need to wear a camouflage attire arise?? Sidney probed.

Meanwhile, producer of the show, Iso Pele also confirmed to GhanaWeb that indeed the controversial artiste had to change attire due to the directive received from the Defense Ministry that nobody should be seen in camouflage-like attire on their platform.
