Dancehall artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr., known by his stage name as Shatta Wale, is currently the best musician in the country hiplife musician C-zar, has said.

Listing his best Ghanaian musicians on the Ayekoo Ayekoo midmorning show on Accra 100.5FM on Friday August 11, 2017, C-zar said Shatta Wale was number one. R2Bees, Sarkodie, Stonebwoy and Kofi Kinaata add up to make his five best Ghanaian musicians.

In response to why he left out Samini in his list, C-zar said “Samini is [a good artiste] I don’t play with, he’s marvelous but we are talking of the best artistes at the moment that is why I left out his name.”

C-zar also revealed that Sarkodie is the only rapper who has taken Ghana music to the apex as far as the international stage is concerned.

According to him, although Ghanaian rappers are struggling to make inroads on the international stage, Sarkodie has carved a niche for himself with his unique style of rap which has given him international recognition.

“Today, almost all of our songs have turned rap music; it appears if you can’t rap you are out of the game or you can’t do music. This has allowed the Nigerian artistes to take over, because, they have taken the highlife beats and are using their dialects, their pidgin to sing and the foreigners relate with them more than us because they have developed their own style.

“We in Ghana are copying western rappers verbatim and so Ghana music has messed up and that’s how I see it.

“There are a few people like Kofi Kinaata and Wuta with their hit song ‘Bronya’ which today, both the young and old are singing and dancing to, singing…

However, Sarkodie for instance is a rapper and rap has taken him to a different level.

“Apart from Sarkodie who is taking Ghana to another level, honestly speaking, the rest of the rappers are not taking us anywhere. Sarkodie is the only rapper taking Ghana high.”
