Koo Ntakra has finally voiced out his stance on the ongoing wrangles as to who has been the best rapper from the Akuapem range, stating he is the Best thing that has ever happened to that style of music in Ghana.

The 2013 MTN season 2 winner has made it clear in a report emerging from Koforidua where he started his music, to have been the Best thing that has ever happened to the style of rap with the Akuapem language. The report carried out by iPromoGH, talks about the young artiste stating why he is considered the best out of the lot of the Akuapem rappers in Ghana.

According to the young rapper, Akuapem rap in Ghana, has not seen a lot of stars rise to prominence ever since Pope Skinny first used the language in his introductory stage, but since winning the MTN Hitmaker, within a year  he has released his first studio album, which featured not only Ghanaian artistes but went on to do an international collaboration with Wonda Boy of Nigeria. Not only that, within the same period he has had the opportunity to perform alongside the best artistes not only from Ghana, but on the continent as well, including Sarkodie who has won several international awards, and is highly regarded by many, Samini, Shatta Wale, Edem, D-Black, Wiz Boy, Davido who is the current winner of BET Awards Best Africa Act, as well as legendary  AB Crentsil among many others.

The rapper went on, stating that, he has given the younger ones on the mountains of Akuapem and the entire Koforidua who do street rap battle the edge and inspiration that they can also go on to becoming the future stars of their trade with their own rap style. ‘I have used all available channels and through my music to project the Akuapem language, it traditions and history, just within one year of doing commercial music, and I think no one has been able to do what I have done thus far’, he added.

Koo Ntakra is notably known for his story telling, poetic rap lyrics in his music with his deep Akuapem ascent that marvelled a lot including the judges at his time on the MTN Hitmaker reality show for which ultimately won him the prize.

The Powase Music Group artiste in November 2014 released his first studio album titled ‘Akuaba’ (Priceless), also released an official video with Yaa Pono for his ‘Move Back’ sond and has hinted of working on a new mixtape album to be released later this year to be titled ‘My Story’.

Fans can now get his ‘Akuaba’ album online via iTunes, and also get exclusive previews and sneak peeks of his activities via Youtube
