In an interview with Pulse, eShun noted that the trend is worrying because some of the victims she has interacted with told her they were less than 18 years.
“After speaking to many of the ladies, I discovered that several of them are Nigerians,” she says. “The sad part of this is that most of them are very young girls between the ages of 15 and 16, maybe 17 years old.
“Sometimes you see the policemen around but the ladies continue their solicitation as though they were not around. I feel if the police were doing their job well, we as a nation may be able to curb this problem,” she mentioned, adding that “I once asked a woman who sells food near one of the solicitation hot spots about the situation and she said even the police patronize their services.”
eShun stated that it would be a great relief to see an end to commercial sex. According to her, she would not be excited to see her sister engage in it hence, she’s unhappy seeing several ladies sell their bodies.
She said: “Anytime I see them, I sometimes approach and talk to them, realizing how young some of them are… I imagine them being in school and doing something better with themselves.
“Even if it means going from door to door to do laundry, being a domestic worker to earn an income and start something on their own, perhaps even learn a trade to equip themselves for the future.
“This would be much better than engaging in commercial sex activities. I have younger sisters and seeing these young ladies is heart-breaking.
“I have learned a lot from the Nigerian music industry, been there countless times and Nigeria is and will always be a part of not just me but many Ghanaians.
“It is a beautiful country so it hurts to see these girls, especially at such a young age being involved in such activities.”
