According to the dictionary of Emmanuel Nana Appiah Boakye a.k.a Kontihene he owns the songs with the longest mileage and the best content in Ghana and possibly in Africa and he is not the PRO for any artiste who feels bothered by this fact.
Using his songs as an instance, he stated that, “In the club currently, songs that patrons jam to which has been in existence for over 15- 16 years are mine, Nana Appiah songs. So who is bothered or is against that? After all I’m not anybody’s song.”
Speaking with Ekow Poncho BREEZE 90.9 FM’s Entertainment show, SHOWBIZ TODAY, Kontihene was speaking relating to a story tagged with his name that he was the only musician in Ghana with good content. He lamented that he may sound pompous but he was only marketing his product as an artiste and not a marketer for anyone.
“I may sound pompous but I am proud of myself and what I do, I am no PRO for anyone so whoever that has a problem with my comment, the fellow should come forward and comment too. All I’m saying is my songs ‘Asesa’, ‘Dedeede’ and others are still banging everywhere in the country”.
During the interviews, Kontihene he is not justifying that there is no good artiste in the country but all he wanted to say was to encourage other musicians to create good content in their songs.
In his last words he said Ghana had over 24 million population and if 1million out of that would hate or dislike him, that would not be a bother to him at all.
