Ghana music industry is one sided – it lacks creativity – only copycats pretending to be who they’re not.
You can tell from the way every artiste jumps on a trend and basically becomes valueless after the trend fades away.
The issue of the music “Nations” is one that readily comes to mind. About 90% of Ghanaian musicians – from upcoming to mainstream now have music “Nations”.
The latest trend is the addition of the number 1 to a name just to prove some imaginary supremacy in the industry.
Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy are referred to as the 1Don and 1Gad respectively and they’ve both dropped songs named after their new alias. Well a lot of others are beginning to add 1 to their new names.
Samini described himself as 1King and the latest to join is singer and rapper, Patapaa Amisty. He has attached to his name, 1Hero.
Well most of the names are not really funny again but nonsensical. Patapaa took to his twitter handle to announce his new alias.
