Born Justice Amoah, popularly known in the showbiz circles as ‘Patapaa’ has said great highlife musicians have inspired his tunes, as he is focused on promoting Ghanaian music.
Speaking in an interview, the ‘One Corner’ hitmaker said he always wanted to produce songs that Ghanaians could better relate to and not imitate foreign genres.
“My songs are danceable because you can feel the Ghanaian vibe. Something I learned from past high lifers such as Nana Ampadu, J. A Adofo, Gyedu Blay Ambulley Amakye Dede, among others, that’s why people from all over the world enjoy my music,” he stated.
”When I started music people taught I was joking but my objective was to be different from other artistes and brand myself well, he added.
“I knew one day God would help raise me up, so I never gave up on my dream of becoming a musician.”
”I have been criticized by lots of people with regard to my style of music and I take them in good faith and continue to work on them to make me a better artiste,” he said.
He also advised young talents to be humble in their respective endeavors, as well as adopt different styles to make them easily noticeable as they look forward to stepping into greatness in the music industry.
Patapaa is expected to debut his first album on August 16 with a massive concert set to be staged at the Swedru Sports Stadium with artistes such as Wendy Shay, Kwaw Kese, Kofi Kinataa, Fameye, Fancy Gadam, Article Wan among others, expected to perform on the night.
Patapaa shot to fame after releasing his single ‘One Corner’.
