The Daavi Medekuku hit maker in an interview on Hitz Fm’s Showbiz Today programme hosted by Bola Ray, referred to Reggie Rockstone, the Grand Papa of hip-life’s tag line, as a “loose talk in the hip-hop world” who needed to be responded to.
According to Ex-Doe, “Hip-hop is hip-hop and you cannot change it. When you drop any loose talk, people will use it on you, you know what I mean, but it’s hip-hop. If you are living in Accra and you are saying you are Oseikrom President, it makes me feel like oh that’s a loose line…”
Re-living the song in question, X-Doe rapped the first verse which served as a response to, in his own words, the “loose line” often used by the originator of hip-life.
In the lyrics of the 1999 hit song, Ex-Doe said,
“Rasta wonti reggae wose wo y3 rapper.” (Rasta can’t speak reggae; you say you are a rapper)
“Me die menim se wo ye dancer.” (I know you are a dancer) …
…Wose wo fre woho President wonsoa won te wo resident wanhwe a mede wo beto internet ma obiaa ate wonka. (You call yourself President, you don’t live in a residence…)
In spite of the lyrics, Ex-Doe said he had nothing against Reggie Rockstone and he sees him as a big brother.
Meanwhile, the hip-life artiste is planning a major come back onto the Ghanaian music scene and urged his fans to expect something new from him.
Ex-Doe’s music career gained prominence after his famous beef with his friend, Chicago, over who owned the hit song, Daavi Mede kuku released in the late 1990s.
