Veteran Ghanaian hiplife artiste, Reggie Rockstone has reacted to Shatta Wale’s claim that he hasn’t made any impact with rap music.
The SM leader in a video blamed Reggie for bringing rap in the country, adding that older folks in the country do not like rap music.
In a reaction to his claim, the Grandpapa of Hiplife calmly threw light on the impact he has made through a video sighted by Zionfelix.net.
He clarified not seeing Shatta Wale’s comment as an insult to his persona, rather, a debate.
Reggie indicated that opinion is like assholes—and both Shatta Wale and him accord themselves with respect.
He argued that there are only two popular dancehall musicians in the country currently [Shatta and Stonebwoy] but there are tons of rappers in the country when you compare.
Reggie disclosed Shatta Wale started as a rapper during his Bandana days.
The veteran rapper said he was able to pull international collaborations with Beenie Man and Wyclef through rap.
He mentioned job creation as one of the impacts that rap has made.
Reggie Rockstone emphasized that hiplife is probably the biggest youth-orientated movement in the history of Ghana.
He added that one of the biggest artistes in Ghana, [Sarkodie] is a rapper—and through rap, he won a BET Award and has been on many international stages.
Reggie further stated that all that he has acquired is through rap.
