These Young Rappers Are Better Than Us – Okyeame Kwame
Okyeame Kwame has sung the praises of young rappers in Ghana.
He stated in an interview with Joy Prime‘s Ibrahim Ben-Bako that the current rappers are doing very well.
Without mincing words, he stressed that they [young rappers] are way better than them.
“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,” the Rap Doctor stated.
He made the statement at the Grand Cassamora hotel at Adjiriganor where he went to support Kwame Yogot for the premiere of his ‘Nobody’ music video.
“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,” said Okyeame Kwame.
He added: “There is competition from the US, Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa but still, these young rappers can be heard.”
