The debates, rifts and continual beefs amongst musicians on WHO OWNS TONGUE TWIST RAP IN GHANA took over the music scene causing panic between fans of these musicians.
The likes of Sarkodie, Secure Pabene and Quata Budukusu who were furiously at each others’ necks proving ownership of the said genre with wild songs such as S.H.O.U.T, DEATH TO SARK amongst others brought confusion to music aficionados as each one of them made a lot of sense of what they said in their beef songs.
The man was however separated from the boys when the CEO of No Trespassing Family (NTP) Sweenity in an interview with Davcadopromo.com stated that, Quata Budukusu is the real originator of tongue twist rap in Ghana and that, he is forced to believe people don’t know their history and aims in music whenever they try claiming ownership of tongue twist without giving credit to Quata Budukusu who happens to be the real originator. This comment has raised a lot of controversies between fans of the said musicians.
In a chat with Flex newspaper, the BABY hit maker had this to say when reporters of Flex newspaper engaged him in a conversation with these questions.
How was the feeling like when you heard this statement from Sweenity?
“I was very happy because, it takes few people to recognize what somebody is doing or what somebody has actually done. We also thank the people for realizing that, somebody started this and we are being acknowledged for something like that. This means we are working hard and actually establishing ourselves, people sometimes know the truth but always tread on propaganda to sell other people and will always dispute the fact that you are the one who started this.
We thank God and people in the media who already know what we started back then and we also say big ups to Sweenity for recognizing us to be the pace setters of tongue twisting,” he said.
Why do you think people will claim ownership of tongue twist knowing very well you are the real originator?
“Music is marketing. It takes your team to establish what you are building and people are always looking for short-cut to sit on what somebody has done, it’s been in history where people steal others people’s vision and make it popular by putting their stamps and put it out there. Your hard work will be someone’s legacy, if you don’t work as much as possible to establish it and put it on pupils mind, they will try to dispute that fact until you stand and give them what you have built which includes time and dates.”
“People will always try to steal something from somebody because, they want to use that legacy for themselves and I am not ready giving up on the legacy I have built over the years. My legacy is an established fact, everybody including the media knows it except for some few people out there who are trying to do things to tarnish that image and make bad name for you.”
“When we started, most of these media people were still in school and were not following music as at that time and so they started following what is out there today. Most of these media people don’t even do their research because I have been to a couple of interviews and they always ask: who is Quata? This means you are not even a media person because media people always do their research to know who started what and from what time.”
“This has made me believe that, most of these media people came in at these era and therefore look at things from this era and haven’t done any research to know where it started from.”
How do you feel going for an interview without you being recognized?
“I feel Hip-Life has failed, because we have no data base which actually puts people on records, I think hip-life hasn’t done much and the media haven’t done much to help either.”
What should your fans expect from you this year?
“My fans should expect a lot of international collaborations from me. I am about establishing a legacy no one has done and that is my quantum rhythm which has thirteen songs all with one beat including videos for banger, Fake Royalty, Yaye Shi, will all be dropping next month including the Quata outdooring which will also be happening this year.”
