Ghanaian traditional music artist, King Ayisoba has vowed never to feature or collaborate with any musician who does not make sensible songs.
He made this pronouncement during an interview with media personality, Giovanni Caleb last week and according to him, he will work with musicians whose songs have substance in terms of the message.
He said, “I have featured Samini, Sydney’s ‘Fa Me Sika Ma Me’, Kontihene and Kwabena Kwabena.
But those songs did not cross the borders of Ghana. My song, ‘I Want To See My Father’, is the one that crossed into the international market. So, a hiplife artiste who doesn’t make sensible songs but playful ones, I won’t agree to work with them.”
In his defense, his music career is headed in a forward direction. So it’s just right that he works with people going in his direction.
“Do we make music to mover forward in our careers or backwards?” he asked Giovani Caleb.
King Ayisoba said, “If you are a musician making music, do you want to move forward or backwards? Who doesn’t like to move forward? So, in Ghana, I can say I am different from the usual Ghanaian music. So my music is unique and different. And you can see my dressing and my clothes. So I cannot feature hiplife artiste anyhow. I have to choose the one who is the best.”
