Asa Khalifa who was widely known as Old Sodja revealed recently on an interview on Ultimate FM, a UDS campus radio that all Kumasi rappers are “sick”.
He was been questioned by the host on the entertainment segment, D.J Item, on which Kumasi-based artist he would love to do a song with.
“Honestly, it will be difficult for me to know which artist to do a song with. All Kumasi rappers are equally good and on top form. They are “sick” with their raps”, he confessed.
Asa Khalifa also revealed the reason why he changed his name from Old sodja to his present name.
“This is not a showbiz name. Its my own name. In fact, I wanted people to know me by my real name and not any other identity. When I featured Guru in his song “Pastor”, I wanted my identity to be hidden but because of stubbornness he mentioned the name once at the beginning of the song”.
The “Is too late” hitmaker also revealed that he was the one who identified Kofi Kinaata and even sent him to a studio to record a song.
“I sent Kofi Kinaata to a studio one day, and his raps received heavy applause from the people in there. Today, Kofi Kinaata is on top form and am glad to help”.
D. J Item also questioned him on the current trend of the Ghanaian Highlife music and how he think it was moving.
“Highlife music is done better in Ghana than any other place. We can do it better than any other country. Today, there is Bisa Kdei and the others who are helping. One day, King Dee, told me sometime ago that the High Life music has taken a new trend which I must adopt but I said no because I can fit in at any moment. People seems to forget that we are also into this genre”.
Asa Khalifa is currently promoting his song “movement” through the various media houses across the country.
