Award-winning musician, Rocky Dawuni has vented his anger at the rate Ghanaian musicians like to record diss tracks for themselves as well as get involved in musical beefs.
In an interview with Amansan Krakye on Radio Central following Sista Afia and Freda Rhymz brawl consequent on the recent beef.
In his view, Ghanaian musicians should do songs that portray the positive things in the country to the world and not be wasting their time to do diss songs.
“It is a waste of time, let’s allow our creative works to portray positivity about Ghana to the world. We don’t need to create a wrong impression among the youth that in music you need to fight and be against each other in order to get attention, it’s a wrong move”- he said
He also says it’s selfish if you try to usurp some in order to be ahead of him or her.
“Some people beef just to get attention and create hype in the press but let’s focus and sound positive in our songs. It’s more to do with selfishness and the desire to usurp someone in order to always be ahead”.
If it is arranged as a play for fun that both artistes agree behind the scenes that we are going to beef each other for competitiveness, then I don’t have any issues with it.
But when it becomes serious such that it turns to be full of insults and physical assault then obviously we would be badly influencing children who see these artistes as role models.
Rocky advice the media not to put their attention on such stuffs as it’s ruining our music in the eyes of the world.
“It works for some people to get attention but I think it is high time we put these things behind us and the media should not be buying into those stuffs and focus on things that are positive”
