Ras Kuuku Fumes At Ghanaian Media …Says They’re Not Supporting Talent
Dancehall artiste, Ras Kuuku, has registered his displeasure at how the local media seems to be pushing just a few musicians, and ignoring the works of many others who are equally hardworking and talented.
According to the ‘Wo’ musician, media houses expect him to fight with colleague musicians before his works are ushered into the limelight.
“People want me to fight someone or create some mess. They ask why I am not in the news and why I don’t throw jabs. But, I can’t do that. Music is for the soul so I cannot waste time fighting people for hype,” he said in an interview on Hitz FM.
“Some GH artistes are hyped for no reason. Artistes such as Wiyaala, Myself, Osagyefo, Akwaboah and a host of others should be very big by now but when you talk about top 10 musicians in Ghana our names will not be mentioned,” he lamented.
According to Ras Kuuku, real name Kojo Korankye, if an artiste is not willing to pay huge amounts of money for promotion or create some controversies to be in the news, then he/she should forget about hitting the limelight.
“I don’t want to create unnecessary controversies to get me out there, I want my music to speak for me,” he said.
Apart from being a wonderful performer with great stagecraft, Kuuku gives his best anytime he mounts the stage. He recently launched his third album Kuntunkununku, which he collaborated with Samini, Stonebwoy, MzVee, Rudebwoy Ranking, Black Prophet and Yes Jah.
The 21-track album has songs like Almighty, Only You, Mama, Guitar, Do Wo Nua, Eye Red People, Jamming, One Africa, Your Eye Ball, My Holy Girl and Me Mpaebo.
