This is a craft that enhances the puberty rites for young girls performed by the Krobo tribe. It is known ‘dipo’ and it’s done to guide girls into womanhood.
Many might be wondering, what could push Mzbel to do this? On her waist are lovely hand-woven beads to the upper part of her thighs and a colorful Kente head gear. Her body soiled with oil brings out smoothness and nice feel on the skin.
There comes comments pointing at her of being ‘trapped’ by the same circumstances as Akuapem Poloo. Mzbel questioned her fans if she was too old for a “dipo’ rite.
She stated that she was denied an opportunity to be initiated into the dipo rite because circumstances changed.
“Am I too old for “Dipo”? I’m a last born of Seven girls and the only one among my sisters who was denied “Dipo” cos my mama found Christ 💔” she stated on Facebook.
But in response to her question, most people felt it wasn’t right. However, comments were indicating that, she is a mother and does not have such an opportunity to perform the rite.
Others also question what the true motive of the photos were. Aside the disagreement by others, a few fell in love with the art.
