Young and versatile Ghanaian rapper Kojo Fiba, born Desmond Prince Owusu, laments the misuse of wordplay in his raps these days.
“When I started doing rap I felt like in any rap I did, I wanted to get some wordplay in there and that’s what I was doing at first,” he told BanglaWebTools.com.
He continued, “When I became more exposed and gained some experience doing rap, I realized that wordplay makes some people feel happy but it’s far from it.”
According to the talented Elmina-based act, though it’s nice to use wordplay in a rap song in the way and way it’s used nowadays it’s very annoying.
Amansan Krakye told the host “Sometimes you realize that when you listen to some rap music, you hear wordplay being used which is completely off-kilter, nonsensical and annoying.
“But the person wants to do wordplay by all means, so he left out the sensible thing to say and be like if you’re from the Cape then the Coast to me,” he added in Showbiz on Property.
“The person wants to use Cape Coast wordplay but at the end of the day what he said makes no sense at all and those are the things that most of these rappers use every single day,” Royal Radio said.
