The Odo Carpenter hit-maker Bisa Kdei has declared that Shatta Wale’s style is more of a comedy.
Making a guest appearance on Adom FM’s mid-morning show, Work and Happiness hosted by Ohemaa Woyeje, Bisa said music fans are excited by Shatta Wale’s dancehall style, but not for the quality of his music.
Bisa, whose real name is Ronald Kweku Dei Appiah, started his music career as a rapper in a group called BISA (Boys In Serious Action). He later decided to embark on a solo project when he developed his talent.
Bisa has done soundtracks for movie producers such as A.A Productions, Paul Gee, Miracle Films and Pat Thomas. However, it was the movie, Azonto Ghost, that brought him into the limelight.
He has also collaborated with many artistes including Efya, D’ Black and Sarkodie.
After his Azonto Ghost song became a massive hit, the 29-year-old musician released hit singles, Metanfo, Over, Madanfo and Love Letter before releasing his maiden album Thanksgiving, that has 16 tracks.
According to Bisa, he stands for good music. “Some musicians do music for the fun of it, but my songs relate to my personal life experiences. Ever since I began playing music about eight years ago, I have told touching stories of everyday life through my music,” Bisa said.
He admonished his fans and the general public to strive hard and face the challenges in life head-on.
