Ghanaian rapper, Okyeame Kwame has opined that the new crop of rappers in the industry are far “better” than him and others who have been in the game for two decades.
In a recent interview with Joy Prime‘s Ibrahim Ben-Bako, Okyeame Kwame explained that despite the tough competition from around the world, the new crop of rappers are able to stand their ground and penetrate with their music.
“These guys are standing on the shoulders of giants like Reggie Rockstone, Lord Kenya; what people don’t know is these young rappers are way better than us. Kwame Yogot and the rest – they are much much better than us. There is competition from the US, Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa but still, these young rappers can be heard,” Okyeame Kwame stated.
The “Rap Dacta” who was out supporting Kwame Yogot at an event in Accra, explained that when he started out as a rapper, there was just a few of them, and the competition wasn’t tight.
“When we started rap, there were just a few rappers – Bright of Buk Bak, Exdoe, Chicago, Reggie Rockstone, VIP and Obrafour. We were just a few. Now, everyone knows how to rap and the world has become so small through the internet,” he added.
