Ghanaians do not accord me respect – Kweku Darlington

Onipa, his most recent song with Okyeame Kwame and Fameye, is receiving overwhelmingly positive reviews from the music community.

Ghanaian musician, Kweku Darlington has accused Ghanaians of not according him due respect as they should, even though he is the best.

Ghanaians, according to Kweku Darlington, do not value his skills and contributions to the sector. Among his contemporaries, he asserts to be the best lyricist and songwriter.

“I just feel that Ghanaians don’t value me as much, even if I’m currently the finest composer, in their opinion. Take a look at the young people—I mean, the young men who are popular right now. When it comes to songwriting, no one comes close in my opinion.

Kweku Darlington thinks he’s possibly the best songwriter. “Just scan the folks around you, he advised. Just being sincere here. This isn’t bragging or anything when it comes to lyrics writing. No one in the younger age, in my opinion, comes close when it comes to songwriting.”

Sugarcane crooner, Camidoh has reacted angrily to those who claim he is trying too hard to sound Nigerian.. The singer has stated it is a shallow way of looking at things.

In an interview with Joy Prime’s Noella Kharyne Yalley, the singer of “Sugarcane” was asked, “A lot of people think you sound extremely Nigerian. What are your opinions on it?” “It’s their opinion, which they are entitled to,” Camidoh retorted.

“With time, people will get to understand that we were never meant to be just Ghana. We were meant to be Africa. I’m Ewe, if I chose to go by that mentality, I’ll be doing music solely in Ewe. And if we think like that, then we will be encouraging boundaries,” he stated.

“It’s 2022, and a time the world is trying to be one. So if we’re going to sit here and allow Nigerians, South Africans, come to Ghana, borrow our words, make music with it, and we jam to it, yet when we (Ghanaian musicians) borrow their words and make music with it, we (Ghanaians) criticize it, then we’ve erred. So whoever thinks that I’m shining in the shadows of another country, it’s a shallow way of looking at things.

“it’s not like it’s deliberate to sound Nigerian, am I only going to make my money in Nigeria? No! Is the Nigerian sound the sound of the world? No! The world is open to listening to every sound that’s quality. So let’s not make it seem like I’m trying to deliberately sound Nigerian, so I can tap into their market”.
