In the last couple of hours, the Ghanaian music industry, especially, the rap scene has been fascinating with music lovers engrossed in a conversation as to who ‘spits bars’ – Amerado or Obibini?
This conversation was birthed after Obibini hit the studio to record ‘Deceased’ – a song directed at Amerado. The Mic Burners artiste, without hesitation, initiated a counter-attack against the Zylofon Music signee with ‘The Throne’.
Who touched a lion’s tail?
While in the UK to perform at the ‘Ghana Party in a Park’ a few weeks ago, Amerado, Kweku Flick and Yaw Tog had the opportunity to feature on British presenter and disc jockey Tim Westwood’s show. Although all the three rappers expressed themselves through rap, Amerado became the talk of the town as music lovers were so enthralled by his performance.
Amerado, known to have excelled with his weekly ‘Yeete Nsem’ episodes, in his delivery sold Ghana to the world, projecting the natural resources the country has been blessed with. He also highlighted that Ghana has amazing talents – from football to music – citing budding musicians Kofi Jamar, seasoned acts Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale, KiDi, King Promise, Darko Vibes and calling on investors to do business in Ghana and reap mouthwatering benefits.
Amerado switched to talk about the ills in the Ghanaian music industry, touching on lack of unity and attempts by some individuals to thwart the efforts of budding musicians. As a typical rapper, he bragged and boasted! How about shades? That was an ingredient that was certainly not missing from his lines.
“Somebody claims he is rap ‘wudinii’… You’re not there yet, be humble,” he rapped – a line that broke the camel’s back.
How is that Obibini’s dig?
For close to two years, Obibini has touted himself as “rap mu wudini” – to wit – he is a murderer in the rap game. He is on top of his game and massacres whoever faces him to prove superiority. A few moments after the video went viral, Obibini was asked if he would reply. In his response, he said Amerado should write better songs if he knows how to rap.
Amerado’s performance begins from 10th minute.
While the industry munched Obibini’s comment, Amerado denied taking a dig at the Zylofon Music act.
