Ace music producer, Mark Okraku-Mantey has hit hard at Sarkodie once again over the release on his new single ‘take it back’. Mark Okraku-Mantey is one industry player that is noted for saying it as it is without fear or favour.
In the take it back song, Sarkodie more or less bemoan the low standards of rap nowadays where he added that instead of rappers taking pen to write, they are rather on snapchat.
Sarkodie in the song also called his fellow rappers lazy ass* rappers in the sense that when instrumental is dropped, they only sustain themselves on it for 2 minutes.
On Joy Fm’s Rythm A-Z hosted by Mamavi Owusu-Aboagye, they treated a topic as in what has changed with regards to songs released today and that of yesterdays with Sarkodie’s ‘Take it back’ song as a case study.
According to Mark, Sarkodie doesn’t have any moral right to say most of the stuffs in the song and that of late, there is no content in even his song, the productions are weak, there is no theme, his chorus doesn’t even relate to the whole song in general.
“Standards in rap has fallen, even the production has weakened. Compare any song of Lord Kenya to that of Sarkodie’s songs, there is a vast difference in terms of production, content, theme. Take a song like Sarkodie’s ‘push push’, the entire song has nothing to do with the chorus.”
He continued, “Even Sarkodie’s rap standard has fallen. Compare his old songs to that of the news he’s releasing nowadays, you would clearly see that there is a difference. In a long while, the only song that has content for me and was well produced is his ‘Hand to mouth’ song”. He commented.
Mark Okraku-Mantey went ahead to advise musicians to work harder; include more themes in their songs, they should do proper mastering, they should stop rushing into the studios and just releasing anything as a song.
Ebony’s funeral invitation finally out
We have sighted a photo of an invitation card for the funeral of late dancehall act, Ebony Reigns, known in real life as Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, which has started making rounds on social media.
The invitation to the funeral is reportedly coming from the family of the late singer who are expecting a mammoth crowd during the final funeral rites of their late family member.
According to details of the card, family of the late award-winning dancehall act were inviting Ghanaians to partake in the solemn ceremony which is slated for March 24.
The funeral is expected to take place at the forecourt of the State House on Accra with her final resting place going to be the Osu Cemetary.
Not too long ago, father of the ‘Date Ur Fada’ singer, Nana Opoku Kwarteng revealed the official cloth to be used for the funeral of her daughter.
In an interview with Joy News, Mr. Nana Opoku Kwarteng revealed that he had a hard time sleeping, so did some of his family members, especially, Ebony’s sister.
He also used the opportunity to ‘appeal’ for support from well-meaning Ghanaians who wanted to contribute to make Ebony’s funeral a memorable one.
A tribute concert is scheduled to take place on March 23 in honor of the 21-year-old singer in which many artistes have been billed to perform.
Ebony died in a gory accident on the Sunyani-Kumasi road while returning to Accra from Sunyani. Her childhood friend and PA, Franky Kuri and one air force official, Francis Atsu Vondee, who posed as a bodyguard also died in the car crash.
The final funeral rites and burial service of the late Dancehall diva Ebony Reigns have been scheduled for March 24, 2018 instead of the first date, March 17. The postponement follows difficulties to secure a big enough venue for the funeral.
