We are Entertainers, not Boxers – Ras Kuuku. Renowned Reggae artist Ras Kuuku has stated emphatically that, it’s about time industry players stop beefing each other and focus on making good music for their fans to enjoy.
The dancehall artist made this assertion in an interview with Bryt Tv, sighted by ghanaown.com
According to the ‘Wo’ hitmaker, people say beefing among others in the industry brings more money and makes one go viral which I disagree with. Instead of giving your fans what they want through good music makes one achieve success in the music industry. He added.
Ras Kuuku who was recently honoured in New York by 3G Awards board for his immense contribution to the reggae genre in Ghana went on and stated that music is food for the soul not unnecessary drama.
“Ghana music will keep sinking if we don’t desist from fighting each other and focus on the real job which is music. We don’t support each other here in Ghana, that’s how come we hardly get people to fill auditoriums when having a show outside the country. We need each other in this industry to go far. Nigeria musicians support each other that’s why they are where they are now. We need to put in more efforts in our work, we are entertainers but not boxers. The beefs won’t take us anywhere”. He averred.
He therefore added that, there must be a law that will ban an artiste who tries to beef his colleague. With that, he believes will curtail the misunderstanding that keeps surrounding the music industry in Ghana.
