In an Interview on 3FM, Ghana Music Artiste of the year, E.L raised concerns about how commercialisation of music is considered a priority over its content. According to him, most songs being released by music artistes lately are empty.
“It’s become so much more about commercialisation of the music and it’s lost a lot of its soul regrettably,” he told host of 3FM’s Urban Blend, Miriam Osei Agyemang.
EL who controversially beat competition from five other musicians to emerge the music champion for 2015 claimed only a few mainstream artistes in the country represent rap music in its true sense. He continued by saying, rap artistes these days flow with the beat without actually saying anything.
One would ask, which rappers were the KOKO hit maker talking of ?.
“You have rap artistes these days without mentioning names who are not talking about anything but just use beats and that is not the way to go,” he observed.
