Controversial rapper, Pope Skinny, has pledged to revive the dying hardcore rap in the Ghanaian entertainment industry.
Speaking with Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM Tuesday, Pope Skinny said he’ll put measures in place to revive the hip-hop rap genre in Ghana.
“The rappers in Ghana are dead and not working because rap doesn’t sell anymore so everyone is singing. We’re trying to put the rappers on their toes. I am trying to tell all the sleeping rappers to wake up…” he said.
Asuoden further averred that, even Sarkodie, the acclaimed Ghanaian king of rap is unable to sell rap since rap in Ghana is no more.
The rapper added that, the current state of rap has caused talented rappers in Ghana such as Sarkodie, Kofi Kinata, Yaa Pono and others to resort to singing.
However, Pope referred to himself as the messiah of rap in Ghana, claiming he can bring rap back to life.
He says if he is reinstated as host of “Kasahare level” show on Adom FM, he will play a significant role in saving Ghanaian rap music.
The rapper is celebrated for his songs, which include, “Manta”, “Me di”, “One Man No Chop”, “Obinim Sticker” and many more
