Somewhere last year the debate; on who is the best rapper; amongst Sarkodie and Manifest was on the lips of almost every Ghanaian. It was the topic for discussion on every media platform.
The recent Ghana meets Naija event spark the debate again when Manifest performed as one of the artistes billed for the night. His performance was met with mixed reactions on social media, with majority of the people tagging his performance was “boring”. Music is meant to entertain, inspire, comfort, express feelings etc.…
As a musician,
-you must first of all communicate to your fans through music. If you make music and your target audience cannot relate to it then what is the essence?
-Your music must also entertain and inspire people
– use your music to express yourself
Some Manifans have said Manifest’s stage craft was good and his live band performance was on point at the 2017 Ghana meets Naija. Fair enough. But if your audience are not entertained at the end of the day, then what’s the point? Sarkodie has also had his fair share of controversies. A good example is the hullabaloo about the “Jennifer Lomotey”song But the sarknatives also say Sarkodie knows how to make the people jam to his music regardless and is a very good performer. But the question is “who is the best rapper”?
So then, amongst the Two artists who do you think is the best rapper. Let your vote count!
