One of Ghana greatest wordplay rappers, Flowking Stone has in an interview with B Ice of Agyenkwa FM in Kumasi stated that many musicians who rely on ‘beef’ to blow do not really have the right songs and the talent lyrically to blow and stand toe to toe with the other musicians.
Flowking also told B Ice in the interview that ‘beefing’ helps some artistes who have decided to make that as a part of the brand. The musician and clinical laboratory technician used self-acclaimed dancehall king Shatta Wale as an example. Flowking stated that since Shatta’s rebirth from his Bandana days, it is always one beef or the other and these beef helps him and as such it is very good for him.
He, however, stated that there are also other musicians whose only way of remaining relevant in the music industry is to thrive on beefing but usually do not get their right songs which blow them to the top of the music charts either than the usual beef songs.
Flowking Stone also told B Ice that in as much as the beefing is considered by some as very good for the music industry, it does not help the country internationally. He made the point that he has been declined a lot of international collaboration largely due to the many beefing among musicians in the country. When the host of the show, however, pushed him to mention the name of such acts, Flowking declined, stating it is not necessary.
