Why Okyeame Kwame has been trying to ruin my career - Guru NKZ
Artiste says Ghanaians are motivated by negative competition, gives example of artistes trying to ruin his life because of unfair competition
Ghanaian artiste, Guru has claimed that the Lynx Entertainment team and its affiliates, especially Okyeame Kwame, have been trying to ruin his life for the past ten years.
He explained while speaking with Abeiku Santana at the Okay FM studios that most Ghanaian artistes unreasonably look for fight and competition with their colleagues just to feel better about themselves. This, he said, is the cause that "his enemies" have been trying to end his career.
According to him, Okyeame Kwame had wrongly sought out competition in one of his own songs 'Obrafour'-Kasiebo". He claimed that his colleague had mistakenly taken a line in his track as an insult.
”Okyeame Kwame made inferences from my hit song with Obrafour- Kasiebo and thought my line about a musician named OK raping a girl in Kumasi was directed at him. I recorded a song with Lynx 10 years ago that featured Asem, Eazzy, and the likes that are yet to be released. Since that incident, the clique made up of Obour, Richie and Okyeame Kwame schemed to impede my career and the signs are all bare and clear”, he narrated.
The 'Al Quaeda' hitmaker further generalized his point by claiming that the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards(VGMA) will be terrible as long as Okyeame Kwame, Obour and Richie are on the VGMA board of directors. He opined that they would continue to favor Lynx signed artistes over all others.
Guru made his claims right in the presence of Lynx Entertainment’s General Manager, Albert Mensah who was unable to refute the allegations against his establishment.
The rapper then advised Ghanaian musicians to stop trying to get at each other, to target the world market instead of engaging in petty local competition.
“The competition is not in Ghana here…it’s out there in the world. We have to start looking beyond Ghana else Ghana music will remain only in Ghana,” he said.
He finally concluded by hailing Samini, as the legend he respects very much.
“Samini is a legend and he isn’t celebrated often as he should. He has been undermined for too long…no artiste can perform better than Samini when it comes to live shows…he can just look at my shoes and create a perfect lyric with it,” he concluded.
