Ghanaian reggae musician and radio presenter, Blakk Rasta, has teamed up with Shatta Wale to defend Meek Mill after his Jubilee House video caused many Ghanaians to criticize him online yesterday.
He believes that the American rapper even though young has a great influence than 99% of Ghana’s biggest artistes.
“Some people call him a dead horse, others call him a rapper who has gone downhill. My brother, my sister in fact a dead lion is not as good as a living dog. Meek Mill is still a man who has a lot of influence. Meek Mill is only 25 years old. Meek Mill has a lot of life. Dead as some people claim he is, he is more alive than 99% of musicians we have in this country in terms of patronage and in terms of influence.
He continued “we live in a country where music only trends after we have gone naked on stage. We live in a country where people do not believe in live music. Everything is computerized and they claim this is the computer age. We live in a country where music is so disrespected that musicians come on stage and do karaoke and there are people who clap for them. You expect your music to cross the borders of this country”.
“Sometimes I sit back and I blame the event organizers who book these people to come on stage and do the Karaoke. Let your fans do the Karaoke. Let them play back your music and sing along to the music, not you guys who sometimes even sing off-key.
Meek Mill has come under attack for shooting a freestyle video at the Jubilee House of Ghana when he was given the opportunity to visit the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
