Hip pop might have failed us in our quest for invading the western market, not particularly because we are not gifted but definitely because of sense of belonging . Hip pop when introduced in 1970’s has always been a product of the western world and that’s why rap music couldn’t do the trick for we us Africans. That is to say that the only way Africans could have broken into the foreign market was to present a product that represents them as a people . But these few months have been bright for African music with “afrobeat” gaining the needed recognition and registering imprint globally. The likes of Sarkodie ,stonebwoy, burnaboy,Shatta wale,davido,wizkid,mr eazi are all pushing individually to see the frontal of African music shaped properly.
Nigerians have played an integral part with reference to sold outs concert and big international features using works of wizkid,Davido,burnaboy as a measure . Ghanaians on the other hand are trying to deepen the depth of the movement. Shatta wale got featured on Lion King Album by Beyoncé . Stonebwoy also with recent project Anloga Junction Album featured Keri Hilson, all massive moves to get the genre popularized.
Ghana’s Dblack who copped himself a deal with Sony earlier this month seems to be prioritizing the “Afrobeat to world” campaign. In his address after the Sony deal, he wrote on Instagram “I want to put Ghanaian music on the forefront of the Afrobeats global and this is the first with song/ATV”
The Black Avenue CEO happens to be living his statement with a video of him self and The American rapper OT Genasis in the studio surfacing the internet earlier this week.
Dblack on Sunday 21st June shared photos of himself and the “coco” hitmaker, on set for the visuals of the upcoming jam. The record which is an Afrobeat has Ghana’s duo dopenation on the hook and is produced by Willis beat, Dblack disclosed via a caption of one of the videos that popped up on social media. If you know the leverage of OT Genasis then you will appreciate this step by the “VERA” hitmaker .
The last time a Ghanaian featured an American rapper was back in 2015 when Sarkodie featured Ace Hood. Major collaboration of such kind is long overdue and I think Dblack stepped in at the right time, especially at this moment Afrobeat is gaining global recognition. The release date of this jam is yet to be disclosed but we wait patiently for this banger. Congratulations to Dblack on this one.
Sidney Williams tells Hammer, “You Know Too Well Not To Kiss Shatta Wale’s Ass.”
Sidney A. Williams, a Ghanaian entertainment critic and former radio producer for Y107.9FM in Accra, is dissatisfied with the recent words of renowned music producer Edward Nana Poku Osei, also known as “Hammer.”
Sidney’s dissatisfaction comes at the back of Hammer’s recent utterances about Ghanaian journalist Arnold Asamoah Baidoo who described dancehall artiste Shatta Wale as the most “inconsistent and confused” artist.
In a post, Hammer shared a different opinion saying;
“I can’t believe people are celebrating you for being so disrespectful to another human being in the name of what, opinion?” You people live quietly behind closed doors with your imperfections and just because someone’s life is public you think you can have an opinion?
In a new video shared on YouTube, Sidney who feels disappointed at Hammer’s utterances is heard saying;
“The attack on Arnold is so unfair. It’s so uncalled for. Knowing who Hammer is and the kind of things he’s doing can only be equated to ass-kissing. When people go wrong, it’s only right you allow them to be straightened than to jump behind them for whatever reason.”
He went ahead to advise Hammer to protect his image than speak to kiss ass which will eventually open him up for attacks and insults.
“You only need to be protecting your legendary status and achievements at this time than opening yourself up for attacks for actually saying things that lacks credence.”
Watch Sidney Williams speak out on the Shatta Wale, Hammer and Arnold debacle.
