I’m irreplaceable - Iwan Declares
Ghanaian artiste, Iwan, brags that he is indispensable
Iwan has announced that he cannot be replaced in the reggae/dancehall scene.
According to him, no former manager or anyone else he has worked with in the past can have a replacement for him in the music industry.
The 'Who's Bad' hitmaker told Docta Kay on Accra FM’s 'Nkran Kwanso'.
“You cannot replace me. I'm a very original artiste and I don't believe that anyone can do what I do.
“In the past, they've tried a whole lot. Not only with the artiste that you just mentioned [Shatta Wale], there have been a lot of artists, who have passed through his hands [Bullgod]. If you look at the way they are dressed, the way they make them look on stage and, sometimes, they make them do songs like me. But, it didn't work. They were given many awards for them to look... it didn't work,” Iwan said.
"If someone is original, the person, indeed, is. If someone brings something in the industry, the person has brought it."
“It is up to people to appreciate. If they don't appreciate it, it doesn't mean that it will be short-lived. There are others who will appreciate and carry that thing to the next level”.
“So, I feel that the problem is that, the manager thinks that if you are no longer working with him, you become nobody, so, he can use another person to replace you. It can be any artiste but not Iwan. As for me, no one can replace me,” he noted.
“No one can replace me. Whoever is there having his fame is in his own line. But within the space that I have created, it is not possible because I sing about consciousness. I've done songs that are 10 years old that are still relevant,” the Gideon Force boss concluded.
