According to YFM, the outspoken musician and radio presenter, Blakk Rasta observed;

“I traveled to America and many other places in the world and there is no Ghana music anywhere. Show me one Ghanaian song that is making waves anywhere apart from Ghana.

“Hype! We love hype. All you hear is people claiming they’ve shot a video for 6 million dollars and it’s going to be shown on e.TV. So what? Too much hype! Walk the talk. Be on stage, perform for hours, sweat and walk off stage tired for the people to know you’ve given them their money’s worth.

When the host, Giovani, mentioned that acts like Rocky Dawuni, Knii Lante and Fuse ODG were  doing well, the singer argued;

“Very well, that’s subjective.  When ten people watch you perform, when only two did the previous year, it can be counted as a success. I am talking about shaking the world. I’m talking about hearing Ghanaian music like you hear Nigerian music whenever you go out there.

“We make it look like if can’t speak Patois then it’s not Reggae or Dancehall. When it comes to Reggae and Dancehall, we are still enslaved by the Jamaicans.

Touching on his favourite Dancehall act currently, he said;

“I think Samini is not bad because he has Africanize it but of late he has also gone the Jamaican way. That thing doesn’t go anywhere. Stonebwoy is not bad but he is also still in the Jamaican shadow. I want to feel their Africanness in the music because with what we do you can’t go on stage after Vibes Kartel has performed. They will boot you out. I wish they will go out there and taste the international crowd. You don’t go and perform for one hundred Ghanaians in a Gym and think you are touring international.

“Shatta Wale is gifted but Shatta Wale will not go anywhere with what he is doing. He will tickle himself and laugh. Go to Youtube and see some of the international community’s comments under his songs. Because they hear so much about him and then decide to check him out and realize, it’s not real.

“Why is he begging Jamaica. Begging in the sense that he is always sounding like them. Dancehall is dying" he concluded.
