Rocky Dawuni reacts to Cabum’s rants that he stole his father’s song

Cabum went bananas on legendary musician, Rocky Dawuni, stating that it was wrong for the Grammy nominee to use portions of his father’s song without seeking permission from the family.

The Kumasi based rapper’s rant via a tweet attracted some mixed reaction from fans, industry players and now Rocky Dawuni has reacted to the brouhaha.

One song from Rocky’s latest album “Beats Of Zion” sounds to have been carved from popular Ghanaian song “Kyenkyen Bi Adi M’awu” by the late Alhaji K. Frimpong the who happens to the father of Cabum.

Disappointed Cabum then took to Twitter to call out Rocky Dawuni stating that this “bullshit” can only happen in the Ghanaian Music industry and added that Mr Dawuni has erred for not showing respect to his family.

Reacting to this, Rocky during an interview on Hitz FM explained that he only recreated the song to pay homage to the Late Alhaji K, Frimpong and added that he’s reached to his family to iron things out.

“So, I have reached out to the family and even told them my intention to help them set a direct account so they get whatever is due them, they are part of this remake,” he said.

In a video sighted by pulse.com.gh, the 50-year-old afro roots singer, further talking about any copyright issues relating to his album also mentioned that “there is a system in place that makes sure all the mechanicals of publishing and the rightful owners were taken care of. I understand in Ghana, it has to go through other channels first.”

“When I had the gift of recording at the Village Studio in Los Angeles, and I chose to honour Alhaji K Frimpong by recording with all the modern technology in that studio,” he added.

Rocky Dawuni’s song which has stirred up the controversy is also titled ‘Kyenkyen Bi Adi M’awu’ and it features Rapper Sarkodie.

VGMA 2019 was like SHS funfair – Blakk Rasta

Ghanaian reggae musician and a radio presenter Blakk Rasta has opined has said, performances on the 20th anniversary of Vodafone Ghana Music Awards was no different from Secondary School shows back in the day.

Speaking to host DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa, the renowned broadcaster noted that, he has seen lots of fun-fairs and entertainment show while in high school and the just ended 20th VGMA performances were no different from them. “Ghanaians will probably insult me for saying this, but I’m not scared of speaking my mind. A lot of the performances was like what I saw in secondary school when I was coming up. The performances were just below standard. Somebody like, King Promise, Sarkodie were just performing like a CEO, people have paid GHS 400.00 to come and watch you and you’re performing like a worm removed from a refrigerator. Is this the performance you want to take to the Grammy? You’re joking. Somebody like KiDi, one of my favourite Highlife artist, has disappointed me. Why should you come and mime? You should tell the organizers you’re not a miming artiste but you came there and played CD for us. If you go to secondary school, that’s what they do”

Blakk Rasta, however, commended songstress Efya, Samini and Medikal for putting up an outstanding and energetic performance on the night.

He urged Ghanaian artistes to be more proactive and work on their craft while on stage.

Shatta Wale wasn’t going on stage to congratulate Stonebwoy – Blakk Rasta

Ghanaian reggae musician and a radio presenter Blakk Rasta has opined that, Shatta Wale had a different motive going on stage and not to congratulate Stonebwoy.

He told host DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa that, Shatta Wale promised to cause commotion at the 20th VGMA if things do not go his way and that is exactly what he did.
“Well, for me, from where I sat and what I saw on TV, there was nothing like he was going to congratulate anybody, Call a spade a spade. Before they play the nominees video, look at how he face was. You know, he promised that, if things do not go they way he wants, he will repeat what he did in 2013 and that’s exactly what he did. I don’t think he was going there to fight no, he was going there to create a scene and Stonebwoy to brandished a gun on stage because he sensed danger”

Blakk Rasta suggested that Charter House should ban the two Artistes for two years for bringing disgrace to the scheme and also serve as a deterrent to other Artistes.

At the 20th anniversary of VGMA, a brawl erupted between Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale camps on stage after Stonebwoy was announced the winner of ‘Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year’, at the VGMA on Sunday which caused the former to pull out a gun.
