Ghanaian rapper Okyeame Kwame has raised concerns over the criteria used by Graphic Showbiz in compiling their recent list of the greatest rappers in Ghana.

In an interview with Zionfelix, the artist, known as the ‘Best Rapper Alive,’ questioned the exclusion of notable rappers such as EL, Edem, and Flowking Stone from the list.

Recall that weeks ago, Graphic Showbiz ranked the top Ghanaian rappers in the following order:

Sarkodie, Obrafour, Okyeame Kwame, Okomfour Kwadee, Lord Kenya, Manifest, Tinny, Reggie Rockstone, Strongman, Eno Barony, Guru, Kojo Cue, Cabum, and Amerado.

While these names represent significant contributions to Ghanaian rap, Okyeame Kwame believes the list is incomplete and potentially flawed.

In his interview, Okyeame Kwame questioned the methodology behind the rankings.

“What criteria did Graphic Showbiz use for that list? RAP is Rhythmic African Poetry; so did they look out for the rhythm, the ‘Africanness’ or the poetry? Did they use popularity or influence? Or is it based on being able to rap?” he queried.

He emphasized the importance of including EL, Flowking Stone, and Edem Goget’em, arguing that their omission suggests a lack of thorough consultation with the rap community.
