Colombian singer and rapper Andres Eduardo Martinez, known within the scope of as MC Dementor, has asked Ghanaian musicians to work harder in order to gain global recognition.
The rapper who’s of Ghanaian descent spoke to MzGee on TV3 and revealed how Nigerian songs have monopolized Columbian airwaves and outdoor events, to the extent that there are fanbases for artistes such as P-Square and Teni.
He noted that the only few Ghanaians whose songs are played randomly once in a while are Shatta Wale, Sarkodie, and Fuse ODG. “Nigerian music is all over the world, and even in Colombia, they love most of Wizkid and Davido’s songs. We have fans of PSquare and Teni too there.
I have heard Fuse ODG songs in Bogota, and others who like dancehall songs know Shatta Wale. But there should more work so that they are widely known,” he added.
MC Dementor sprinkled dust of controversy that he’s known for on the interview by slamming Kuame Eugene for calling himself Rockstar when he’s doesn’t even do rock music. He said, “No, he is not a rockstar. He sings nice and can call himself an afro-pop star but not a rockstar.
Because rockstar is somebody that makes rocks, and his music is not rock. In fact, he can put something related to rock, but in trending, he is not related to a rockstar. Bogota is a rockstar. I am a rockstar. The real rockstar,” he opined.
