Ghanaian Reggae/Dancehall Musician – Kankarah Jahvybz – has dropped a controversial statement on Hitz 103.9fm
In his very blunt comments, he spitefully says more fraud boys have infiltrated the music business and doing slack lyrics that don’t hold water. According to him, “these boys browse the internet to make some little money so they think they can do anything; most of them are not thoroughbred musicians so they can’t create proper content that stands the test of time.”
“Many can’t hold a key on stage, they don’t know anything about music notes, they can’t even perform because they don’t have the energy and flair. Their lyrics don’t carry substance, they are all about the hype and sadly they are the ones in the headlines and confusing the culture. Some of us have sacrificed a lot to be where we are and we grew through the ranks and learned things rightfully to become well-groomed musicians. I began holding the microphone and performing at age 9,” Konkarah added.
