Most big artistes have complained of how ungrateful some upcoming musicians can be. Most musicians that are tagged as underground rappers or musicians often struggle to shine as a result of the difficulties involved in accessing renowned stars to help push them to the limelight.
This could probably be linked with some previous experiences that others have gone through for helping some rising performers. We can pinpoint a couple of them as a case study such as that of Strongman Burner and Sarkodie, where the latter felt betrayed by the former for leaving the SarkCess record label after two years.
A recent case is between Stonebwoy and Kelvinboy at the moment. The latter reportedly said that the former is not the originator of Dance hall music in Ghana which felt like a big blow to his former boss. In a supposed rebuttal; in an interview, Stonebwoy deepened the perceived rift between his former ‘boy’ and himself when he hinted of his decision to enter into contractual agreements with any upcoming artistes he decides to sign or help going forward.
On the contrary, some signees have continually stayed loyal and showcased their appreciation. Medikal (MDK) for instance has always appreciated Cris Waddle of AMG Business fame for his assistance and Fancy Gadam has often mentioned Sarkodie’s name for his feature that pushed him into the spotlight.
