Ghanaian dancehall diva, Kaakie has denied that her new single ‘Sankwas’ is a diss song aimed at taking a dig at rival MzVee, claiming she has been in the game longer than the 2016 BET nominee.
The dancehall artiste’s new single ‘Sankwas’ has been tagged as a diss song against MzVee. Kaakie released ‘Sankwas’ and ‘Time Up’ which have seen a rising tension between herself and fellow dancehall artistes MzVee and AK Songstress.
Speaking exclusively to host of Showbiz927 Heavy D last Saturday, the talented female dancehall artiste stated that she has been in the game long enough and has paved way for other girls to join in “the movement”.
“I always put in a phrase in each of my songs and you will think I’m talking to someone and that is just something about me,” she said.
According to Kaakie, who is a nurse by profession, she never mentioned anyone in ‘Sankwas’ though it is perceived to cast insinuations at MzVee.
She said both ‘Abofra’ composer and AK Songstress have taken her latest single ‘Sankwas’ too personal.
“All of a sudden I release ‘Sankwas’ and people like MzVee and AK Songstress took it personal and some of them have even gone on to write articles about it.
Asked why she thinks the two thought the song is aimed at taking a dig at them, Kaakie said, “I don’t know why they thought that way because that’s where I started from the genesis of my tunes”.
According to Kaakie, her tune ‘Too much’ started with a chorus and a line that says ‘Some girls are wild, some girls are this and some girls are that but my girl here is too much’ and there is another one called ‘Designer bumper’ where she says some girls are China and I am original.
“At that time when I released these songs, MzVee and AK Songstress were not in the dancehall game yet and I didn’t even know where they were”.
Explaining how the whole fracas started, Kaakie said her release of ‘Sankwas’ which admonishes people who want to bring her down, began it as many thought she was referring to MzVee and though she didn’t mention anyone’s name.
“After I released ‘Sankwas’, I was really surprised after I saw the article and I don’t see why anybody will take a song for herself and say that I am singing directly at her”.
