Kumasi-based Hip-hop/Hiplife artiste, Flowking Stone off late on different platforms is heard talking about the negativity that has characterize Ghana’s music industry; retarding the progress of artistes. He goes on to compose a song titled, ‘Real Talk‘ to give thousand and one reasons why Nigeria artistes are far above Ghanaians.
Sadly, Flowkingstone preaches virtue but practice vice as in the voice of Kumasi-based up & coming artistes who shared their sentiments to Ghbase.com. To them, they feel pains in their hearts whenever they hear Flowkingstone talking about supporting one another in our music industry. This is because he doesn’t practice whatever he preaches especially taking into consideration the lyrical content in ‘Real Talk’ song.
Kweku Darlington, Kumasi based artiste & crooner of ‘King My Foot’, nearly shed tears recounting his ordeal and other colleagues’ in the hands of Flowkingstone. Kweku Darlington posited that, Kumasi based artistes are relegated to the background whenever Flowkingstone headline music shows in Kumasi. He cited last year’s DJ Slim Invasion Concert which took place inside Kumasi Baba Yara sports stadium amongst many shows to buttress their woes.
“Flowkingstone when leaving the stage at DJ Slim’s invasion introduced LJ (Lyrical Jay) over the expense of the Kumasi boys who have been rallying behind him all these years”.
Kweku Darlington mentioned one Kwame Baah as one of the numerous artistes who’ve been shunned by Flowkingstone when they needed him for collaboration.
“Kwame Baah’s case is very unfortunate. After making several attempts to feature Flowkingstone, they finally met in one studio around KNUST but he never ‘jumped’ on the song. When was the last time you heard Flowkingstone and Kumasi-based up & coming artiste on a song?” Kweku Darlington quizzed.
He concluded that it’s undeniable fact that Flowkingstone is their greatest exploit contemporary but his attitude towards them is irritating and disappointing.
