Ghanaian rapper and CEO of AMG Business, Criss Waddle has taken on legendary musician Gyedu-Blay Ambolley for calling out Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy for doing dancehall instead of promoting his Voltarian culture and Borborbor.
Borborbor is a Ghanaian and Togolese traditional dance performed by the Ewe people from the mid-Volta region of Ghana. The dance is performed especially during the festival of the chiefs and peoples of communities.
And with this Ambolley thinks Stonebwoy should rather venture into doing Borboror instead of the dancehall he’s doing now which he has on countless occasions spoke against.
The highlife musician in an earlier interview with Attractive Tv said that he’s worried about how Ghanaian local music genre such as ‘Borborbor’ and others are dying off.
According to Ambolley, “Borboorbor” originates from Volta region, therefore, Stonebwoy doing such songs will help sell his identity and culture to the world comparably to the shoddy Dancehall music he’s interested in.
He noted in the interview that we can go far as a country if young and upcoming artistes can promote Ghanaian indigenous music rather than venturing into what we have derived from the Western people.
This infuriated Criss Waddle to call Ambolley out, labelling him as an old man with no sense in a post he made on our earlier post.
