In a video posted on Facebook, the ‘Baba’ hitmaker called on authorities to put measures in place to restrict it.
“This ‘One corner dance craze is getting very dangerous. I saw someone climb an electric pole, I saw someone climb a tipper truck, I saw someone run under a car, and I saw someone dancing while cars were moving. Now, this is getting out of hands. Do you want to wait until you hear somebody dead before you say ‘one corner’ killed him?” he queried.
“I’m getting concerned about the rate at which people are taking this to the extreme. I’ve seen people jump over people just to demonstrate what the ‘one corner’ means. I believe there would have been restrictions if it happened in other countries,” he added.
Sonnie Badu, however, acknowledged the efforts of Patapaa, the performer of the song, and called on stakeholders such as mobile network companies to change some of the lyrics of the song and assist the youngster to achieve his goals.
“In fact, it’s a good trend. Once in a while, good trends are interesting. We had ‘the ladder’,’Azonto’ ‘two thowzing’, ‘kpakpakpa’… This could be an interesting trend that started in Swedru; nobody is taking away the young man’s hard work. It is his time to shine but we have to make sure that if we know it’s his time to shine, then let people who know they can help this guy, help him,” he counseled.
