Ghanaians like to support senseless songs -KayKay Amponsah
US-based Ghanaian artiste, Kaykay Amponsah who recently won the Afropop Artist of the Year in the just ended Ghana Music Awards-USA has made it clear in an interview with Afrotinz.com, that Ghanaians love to entertain and support stupid songs rather than good music.
The award-winning artist released a new music video titled “Nkwasia Nwom”. At the beginning of the video, the versatile artiste shows his disdain for ‘Stupid’ songs as he watches some music videos on TV and breaks the screen because he considers those songs as ‘gibberish’.
In the song, he addresses the trends in the Ghanaian music industry and how an artiste can easily make waves doing stupid and meaningless songs which he refers to as “Nkwasia Nwom”.
According to Kaykay Amponsah, in the 80’s and time past Ghanaians use to respect good music and sensible songs but in this new era sensible songs do not sell anymore, they get little or no attention at all. KayKay Amponsah said though he has ever been nominated in the Ghana Music Awards about some 10 years ago for his good song-writing skill in the Developmental Song of the Year category with his gender empowerment song “As Long As You Are A Woman”, he is still a struggling artist in the industry because he decided to stick to little or no controversy and good music.
