Veteran hiplife artiste, Emmanuel Nana Appiah Boateng popularly known as Kontihene is descending heavily on issues which he feels he has to voice out.
For the past week, the ESI hitmaker has been in the news for voicing out some reasons why he parted ways with his signee, Kwabena Kwabena.
On Jon Germain’s The Zone morning show on Starr fm on Tuesday, Kontihene said he feels some presenters play tricks on him, citing KOD as a typical example.
As monitored by ghlinks.com.gh, Kontihene told Jon Germain that some presenters want artistes to beg them before they promote their music, a situation he described as unfortunate. He described himself as a great artist that doesn’t need to go through that to have his music played. “I keep saying this, they are playing tricks on me. The radio presenters know that when it comes to the great performance, the great composer, the great musician, you cannot mention without my name. But sometimes if you don’t lick people’s a*s, they sideline you”
On the issue of radio presenter KOD, the hiplife artist opened up to Jon Germain about a number of issues he felt bad about. He said KOD backed Kwaw Kesse against him. “when Kwaw Kesse spouted up, he was been backed by my own KOD. I don’t want to mention names but my own KOD.” He added that at a point, KOD denied him an interview, requesting he personally calls him first, another situation he felt made no sense. “Ben Duka called KOD that he wants him to have an interview with me. KOD never gave him permit that I should come and he said I have to call him first. What difference does that make?”
Responding to whether he had a good relationship with KOD, the musician said he will always love and respect KOD irrespective of what happens. “KOD is my brother. He’s one of my favourite people in town but sometimes certain gestures affect us. KOD whether I am dead or alive, he will be my brother.”
In a response to whether the whole issue of presenters affected him as a musician, he said he doesn’t feel affected at all and knows he’s fighting for a good course. “it hasn’t affected me. Its something we’ve been fighting from day 1 and we will win”.
