Dance hall artiste Stonebwoy has chosen five Ghanaian rappers whose crafts he thinks tower over the rest.
Stonebwoy made the list on Citi TV’s ‘Hall of Fame,’ when AJ Sarpong asked who his top five rappers in Ghana were.
“I don’t mean to disrespect any rapper. I am up for any creative person but not in order of importance we have Sarkodie, we have Paedae and I love Obibini, and Strongman and finally Yaa Pono,” he said.
The issue of who rules the rap game in Ghana has always been a debatable one on the entertainment front.
The fight for supremacy in the hip hop world has been characterised by rap battles and ‘diss’ songs against rappers who are deemed rivals.
A few years ago, Sarkodie and M.anifest were locked in a duel over who was king in rap.
They waged lyrical ‘war’ with their songs, generating a lot of excitement and antagonism among their respective fans.
Stories can be told of similar feuds between Ex-Doe and Chicago, Obrafuor and Lord Kenya, Teephlow and Strongman, among others.
Even though Stonebwoy has made a choice of top five rappers in Ghana, the debate on who really rules the rap game lives on.
