Ghanaian rapper, Medikal has waded in on the never ending debate about Ghanaian music going on in the country.
Some music enthusiasts have been demanding the filling of large entertainment venues, winning international awards like Grammys, dominating international music charts and others.
The pressure arises from Nigerian music’s recent success and supremacy, with its singers selling out the 20,000-capacity O2 Arena, winning Grammys, and topping Billboard charts.
The “Omo Ada” hitmaker commented in a tweet that the emphasis appears to have shifted from entertainment to targets or goal-setting.
He highlighted that the music industry is not a competition, asking fans and industry stakeholders to keep pressure and expectations on the musicians to a minimum.
The “AMG” rapper believes the prime focus of music is for entertainment, however, that seems not to be the goal at the moment as the focus has shifted to a targeted goal.
“Ghana music is slowly losing its touch and sauce due to loads of pressure exerted by certain group of people. The focus of fun and entertainment is gradually being swayed from entertainment to a target/goal.N/B Music Nobi competition,” Medikal wrote.
The debate concerning the two West African countries’ music seems to have gained more traction following newbie Asake’s recent historic feat in London where he filled the 20,000-capacity O2 Arena and also entered the venue in a helicopter.
