Multiple-award winning highlife singer, Kojo Antwi has urged those who compare the new generation of musicians to seasoned ones like himself in order to put an end to this practice.
Kojo Antwi argues that when people start comparing up-and-coming artists to established artists, they become inflated-headed and forget that they need to do more to achieve.
In an interview with Asaase Radio, Julius Kojo Antwi remarked, “Stop comparing singers with only one hit to us.”
Young musicians, in his opinion, should be encouraged to learn from more senior and accomplished artists like him rather than the reverse.
In his interview, the icon went on to say that the comparison does more harm than good by putting out young artists’ flames too early.
‘It hurts me that we put out their flames so early,” he says. According to Kojo Antwi, “it genuinely bothers me” and he has warned Ghanaians to “stop treating young artists as if they are sitting in a hospital line” and “leave the scene”.
