Award winning silky voice Highlife Singer Kwabena Kwabena has finally broken his silence on a perceived competition between him and sensational Highlife Singer Bisa Kdei.
Speaking on Neat FM’s “Entertainment Ghana”, Kwabena said he does not think he is in any kind of competition whatsoever with Bisa.
He also stressed that he is not too happy about the fact that people easily compare already existing artistes to emerging artistes because it is not good for the music industry.
“Bisa is a great artiste and we all need to support and I pray that more young ones would come from underground to also become great Highlife artistes. We are trying to build Highlife and the likes of Mark Okraku Mantey and others have also being pushing Highlife music. I have held the mantle for all this while and now Bisa is here to support, people want to create competition between us. No way! I’m not in competition with him”.
“If we do that we are not helping Bisa Kdei. I am happy ‘Mansa’ is a hit because I feel a bit responsible for it, do you know why? Though I am sorry I couldn’t make it to do the collaboration with him, you see how Ghanaians bring hatred between two artistes?”, he asked.
The “Adult Music” hitmaker said when he first heard ‘Mansa’ he advised Bisa Kdei to allow Kaywa to produce it for him and result is what we are hearing today.
“When I heard the song I told him to go to Kaywa because Kaywa will do a great job on this for you and I thank God he listened and he rubbished the first one and he went to Kaywa to do this song and today it’s a hit”.
Kwabena said Bisa is about to release his new album so we shouldn’t distract him with such unnecessary comparism. “I think the young man is about releasing an album so do we distract him? Let’s stop these things so that he can concentrate as an artiste that is the most important”.
Kwabena Kwabena latest single “Tuamudaa” was officially released yesterday Tuesday December 1, 2015 ahead of the release of his upcoming fifth studio album.
