Highlife singer K. K. Fosu has taken a swipe at the National Democratic Congress (NDC) General Secretary, Asiedu Nketia urging him to apologise to all Ghanaian musicians for his ill-fated statement made over Sarkodie and M.anifest issue.
K K noted that the NDC General Secretary played a political gimmick on the public to believe his ‘deliberate’ comment claiming that he’s not familiar with the two Ghanaian rappers.
Speaking with Pluzz FM Tuesday, emphasized the importance of music in Ghana’s political campaigns as politicians hire the services of musicians to get the needed crowd at a campaign grounds, hence musicians must be respected.
Asiedu Nketia recently denied on Asempa FM, ever making any comment about Sarkodie or M.anifest.
“What is called M.anifest…I don’t know anyone by name Manifest and I don’t know anyone by name Sarkodie too…I don’t know them…is it the manifest they look on to write people’s names for them to board planes or what..?” he responded sarcastically to the question of whether indeed he said those things about Sarkodie.
A manifest is a document listing a ship’s contents, cargo, passengers, and crew, for the use of customs officers. It includes a list of passengers or cargo in an aircraft.
The NDC scribe further said that he had no idea why people would want to claim he is a lover of rap music when clearly he is not a fan of hiplife genre of music.
He claimed he has never been interested in rap music because he hardly hears and understands the lyrics in them.
“Have I not been telling you the kinds of music I like, I love Adowa and Yaa Asantewaa kind of music…the songs by Ampofo Adjei, Konadu and even Reggae…if you want to know my friends then they are Naa Konadu whose funeral I even attended, Adofo and Amakye Dede…,” he said.
According to Asiedu Nketia, he became their promoter at a point in time when he was finding things difficult in life.
