There is a saying that everything under the sun that has a beginning has an end. And life’s cycle consists of the old order giving way to the new.
But when the new want to take over from the old when the old haven’t given way, it becomes a struggle. And that is what Ghana music’s emerging “K” quartet of Kuami Eugene, King Promise, Kwesi Arthur and KiDi are doing; trying to take over by force.
But then, the “S” era which consists of heavyweights Samini, Sarkodie, Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale are not easy walkovers. They have been in the game for a long time and have seen it all; the pains, the failures, the disappointments and the successes. So they definitely won’t give way just like that. And mind you, they are still standing tall and holding the flag of Ghana high on the international level.

It will take more than just a hit song to topple them over. Yes, the “K’s” have done their best in producing very good songs like “Angela”, “Woara”, “Odo Ye Wu” and “Oh Yea”. Unfortunately for the K’s, their songs only get hyped in the beginning and dwindle with time. Their songs don’t last for more than 3 months.
And one thing to note is that one thing that the “S” quartet thrive on is beefs. Majority of beefs that occurred in Ghana’s music industry was either between themselves or between one of them and another artiste.
They are due for take over but they will need to up their game if they want to fully take over and maintain.
