Mi Gi Zi Gi rapper, Kontihene was on The KSM Show to talk about his new direction in music.
The rapper currently promoting his Yaa Pono featured track D3d33d3 expressed his frustration towards the industry’s lackadaisical attitude towards time.
“I think in this creative industry there are more people in there who are not mentally sound. Excuse me to say; there are so many people in this world who wear neat clothes but you deal with them and you see the frustration they will put you through.
“I pray we get a lot more wise people in the industry. People who will live up to their words. An example is you scheduling a meeting with someone at 12pm and then they show up at 4pm or not show up at all. Sometimes, some of them don’t care to call or text you to tell you the reason why they couldn’t show up. To me that’s frustrating and it’s like they are wasting your life. I think it’s one major challenge we have as a nation. I think that’s even more serious than the dumsor; but people keep talking about the dumsor every day. There are more core issues we need to fix and transform our minds. In the music industry, we have thousands of them in there.”
He concluded by revealing he is now reorienting himself by finding the light and truth by reading a lot.
“I’m reading a lot of the Bible and the Quran now. I think the truth is in your mind; you listen to what the religions are saying and make the decisions for yourself.
