Ghanaian reggae musician and radio presenter Blakk Rasta has stated that he does good music and cannot be compared to anyone.
Speaking in an interview with GhanaWeb, Blakk Rasta lamented about how he is not appreciated enough although he creates unique melodies and songs.
I listen to myself sometimes and say that Ghana is very unfair. In fact, with the kind of music I record, I don’t have peers. The melodies I record, but I still have some Ghanaians shout that I don’t know music, I know nothing, it is just noise that I make. When I hear this I say, Father, forgive them for they know not.”
Blakk Rasta mentioned that people do not appreciate his works but will wait for his death before singing songs of praise describing him as being a “hot” artist.
“When I die, they will come to say that this man was hot…you are an idiot. Idiots will not dig and find the real stuff, they are listening to noise that is inundating the airwaves. They are not ready for research The average Ghanaian is not a research animal, no. He consumes what is given to him, he doesn’t pick and choose, no.”
“Right now, I have recorded like 60 songs, three albums and I want to release them…you keep them and sleep on them. Now I release them. My brother, I am doing really good music,” he said.
