Strongman has noted that colleague rapper and occasional antagonist Medikal remains the most vilified rapper of the present generation.
In a conversation with Kay Official on Y102.5FM’s Dryve of Your Lyfe, the rapper said he used to be at the receiving end a few years ago as other rappers always took it out on him him but Medikal has now taken the mantle away from him.
He made the comment to console Patapaa after he went mad recently for the constant ridicule he gets from Ghanaians and musicians. To him, Patapaa getting mentions from other musicians in their songs, whether negative or positive obviously means he is on the right path musically.
“Some people have been making music for a long time but have never received any mentions or shoutouts in anyone’s songs, not even a diss. But if everyone refers to Patapaa in their songs, then it means he has something and has a craft people like,” Strongman told Kay Official on Y102.5FM’s Dryve of Your Lyfe.
Strongman noted that a few years back he was the number 1 artiste who suffered dissing and trolling in Ghana but he did not allow that to deter him and asked Patapaa to have that resolve.
“Every year, I used to be the most dissed artiste but presently I am ranked 2nd. Now, Medikal suffers the most disses amongst Ghanaian musicians. 3 years back Sarkodie was the most dissed and jabbed artiste and it is normal. If it happens to you then it means you’re doing something they like.”
The rapper was quick to add that the Kumerica vibe did not become this big all of a sudden and just like all great things, it was rejected at first.
To him, as a musician, you will always be criticized and suffer verbal abuses but you don’t need to pay attention to them. “Patapaa has something and must forget everyone. His One Corner song was a big hit.”
