Burniton Music signee Barbara Naa Okailey Nyarko popularly known as Okaliey Verse (OV) has asked her critics to concentrate on her music and forget about her mode of dressing.

We should be allowed to do what will make us comfortable and when we are, it reflects in our delivery, as in the songs we churn out”, OV stated.
