Ghanaian rapper and CEO of Asuoden Music Pope Skinny says he has what it takes to revive the dead rap music in Ghana if only he is reinstated as the host of the “Kasahari level” show on Adom FM. Pope Skinny made this statement during an interview on Zylofon FM, an Accra based radio station.
“Rap is dead in Ghana. We can no longer sell rap. Because of this, Ghanaian rappers have turned to singers.”, he said.
According to the road manager of Shatta Wale, the rap music genre is dead in the country and that is what has led to many of his colleagues including Sarkodie, Yaa Pono, Kofi Kinaata amongst others resorting to singing rather than rapping.
