Rapper Koo Ntakra has revealed that making a hit song as a singer is relatively easier than doing rap songs. He argued that getting a catchy chorus and rhythm in songs that are mainly sung than rapped is the magic that sustains one’s relevance in the music industry.
Koo Ntakra observed this in an interview with Amansan Krakye on Kastle FM when he was asked how difficult or easy is it for someone who does rap music to get a breakthrough in the music industry.
He said; “I think it’s very difficult to get a breakthrough as a rapper in Ghana. In doing rap sometimes we use rhymes, metaphors, and sophisticated words which the fans might even find it hard to understand what we really want to say.
“But if you look at those who do singing, they make use of melodies and these are easy for the fans to sing along,” Koo Ntakra said on Kastle Entertainment Show.
He added, “It is important to note that when your fans can easily sing your song then it’s easier for you to get the breakthrough into mainstream.”
