Amerado is confident about what he wants to do when it comes to rap.

The Ghanaian rapper, who won the Best Rapper of the Year at the recent VGMA talked about his readiness to keep the rap genre alive.

He said it was his responsibility to do that. The ‘Obiaa Boa’ rapper made this statement in an interview on MX24 TV.

“Yes, 100 percent. There is a whole lot of responsibility on me, which is why I’ve been able to create opportunities for young talents. I provide them with beats, encourage them to rap, and post their performances on my TikTok. These videos often receive a minimum of around 100,000 views, and I believe that I’m also shining a light on them in my own way,” Amerado averred.

He advised young artistes on the need to be unique.

“I wish I could speak for everybody, but as an artist, you need to have a brand attribute, what you stand for, what you believe in. You need to have a vision. You need to have plans, and directions. You can’t tell me that because this guy used this route to attain greatness. That’s where your stars will shine.”

Touching on wise investment, Amerado stated:

“Even if you have all the money and you don’t invest, you run at a loss because you should have a knowledge about what you are doing. Whatever they are doing is fine. Everyone is trying. The fact that Burna Boy is doing Afrobeats and he’s winning, does that mean that Akwaboa should also switch from high life to go and do Afrobeats?

“Possibly Akwaaboa can push his genre to the top and those people also come and follow. They started from a point. So we can all come together, set an agenda, and then believe in the agenda. And then we will call for investors and people who have the knowledge to push it.”
