MTN Hitmaker Season 2 winner, Isaac Akuffo, popularly known as Koo Ntakra has revealed that it is challenging for a rap artiste to break through in the Ghanaian music scene.
According to the Akuapem rapper, artistes who sing have quite an easier chance to breakthrough because of the melodies and catchy chorus they use in their songs.
Koo Ntakra made these arguments in an interview with Amansan Krakye on Kastle FM when he was asked how difficult or easy is it for someone who does rap music to get a breakthrough in the music industry.
He said, “I think it’s very difficult to get a breakthrough as a rapper in Ghana. In doing rap sometimes we use rhymes, metaphors and sophisticated words which the fans might even find it hard to understand what we really want to say.
“But if you look at those who do singing, they make use of melodies and these are easy for the fans to sing along,” Koo Ntakra said on Kastle Entertainment Show.
“It is important to note that when your fans can easily sing your song, then it’s easier for you to get the breakthrough into the mainstream,” he added.
