Lord Kenya’s utterance that was misinterpreted might have angered a sector of the industry and one of such figures is well known producer Mark Okraku Mantey.
According to him former hip-life artiste turned evangelist Lord Kenya cannot instruct or prevent DJs from playing his secular music.
Okraku Mantey who spoke in an interview with Hitz FM said, ‘Sika Baa’ was co-produced by Zapp Mallet and himself and even had 70% stake in his first two albums hence the artists could not instruct people to stop playing his songs.
He continued to say it was uncalled for to ask people who bought the albums over the years to stop playing them.
Lord Kenya over the weekend on Angel FM explained he had only asked that media houses to stop playing the songs that sought to promote profanity but could stick to the songs that promoted societal values.
Lord Kenya won several awards as a hiplife artist including ‘Artiste of the Year’, ‘Hiplife Artiste of the Year’, and ‘Hiplife Album of the Year’ at the Ghana Music Awards 2001.
