Despite the lack of these elements, Mr. Mantey explained that the Akans have mastered the art of promoting their language such that it appears as though they are the only tribe that could produce the best music.
“The Akan language is the weakest. That is my perspective. Somebody could differ. The Akan language is the weakest when it comes to music.
“Unfortunately, the Akan people have pushed harder so much that it sounds as if they’re the ones who could make the best music. It’s not true,”
Mark Okraku Mantey later ended his controversial submissions by stating that Northern, Volta and the Gas as areas having the potential of overpowering Akan music.
