What can u make of this picture; two Ghanaian Hiplife Music Legends Lord Kenya [left] and Obrafour [right]. Picture taken at the just ended Ghana Music Awards Festival 2007 – Beach Jam at the Labadi Pleasure Beach and that night the two musicians announced that they had squashed their “beefs”.
Music could be compared to fire and analogized to the good old saying that “Fire can be a good servant and a bad master” when we talk about BEEFS!
I say this because music can be a good tool to unite people and at the same time serve as a platform to cause rivalries between musicians.
It could also be used to hit @ opponents. Well if A-Plus’ Letter to parliament isn’t enough for an example, then I stand to be corrected. How about X-doe’s “Maba” and Chicago’s “Wo Be Ko”. Did u ever hear K. K. Fosu’s diss track to Batman Samini?
How about the ¢30 million beef between two ministers of the gospel and musicians Pastor Love Hammond and Bishop Michael Osei Bonsu?
Probably the most painful thing about beefs might be when your opponent hits you hard with a hidden secret of your past.
I wonder how many people ever knew Lord Kenya and Obrafour once had a beef.
And u know what started the beef?
|Obrafour and Lord Kenya @ the Ghana Music Awards 2007 - Beach Jam
Both claimed they owned the title “Heavyweight Champion”? LOL
Obrafour Claimed he was given the title “Heavyweight Champion” by the Media after his success with the Paemuka album. Lord Kenya also claimed this same title was given to him by the same media. ….
Hmmm what a “media” we have in Ghana.
Lord Kenya started by giving blows on some of his tracks like Enyom No, Baby Nayoka etc. calling Obrafour “Tico”.
Obrafour then replied calling Lord Kenya “Tipa”, saying Lord Kenya crushed with his Baby Nayoka Album;
// Mr Tipa bi se oye Boss //
// Gyama okaase enne ye enora //
// wei na minhuubi da? //
// Sakora owura now check your speedometer //
// obrafour wodi m’akyi aaa wo engine bebo //
// Afe hwe mensem mongya //
Well, I am glad that the two legends have decided to let the past behind them.
On the other hand, Ghanaian Music Fans should expect in the near future a similar lyrical battle between Madfish and Kwaw Kesse.
They are both claiming ownership of the word “Abodam” – Meaning Madness!
Can u imagine that?????
