Despite being bashed as a bad rapper, popular musician, D-Black, says he knows how to make a hit song. “ I don’t understand why anyone would say I am a terrible rapper because I do hit songs.
Vera, Personal Person, Kotomoshi, Carry Go are few songs of mine that everyone jammed to and no one can dispute the fact that they are good songs” he told Showbiz in an interview last week.
According to D- Black, he knows what goes into making a hit song that is why his songs are always enjoyed by Ghanaians.
“After recording in a studio, I am very much confident Ghanaians will love it and I have never disappointed as a musician. My lyrics are great and straight to the point and any good musician will attest that I am one of the best rappers”, he said.
D-Black explained that Ghanaians have a problem with him because he raps in English. He noted that in Ghana, when you rap in English and your vocabulary is good, people term you as “too and that is known” and call you all sort of names the reason Ghanaians claim he is not good.
Asked why he always prefers to feature other artistes, D-Black said he is not eloquent in the local dialects and he employs the services of other rappers or singers in his songs for that purpose.
“ Yes I do a lot of features and I don’t regret them because I don’t flow well in the local dialect. It is best for me to go in for a good musician who is good with the local dialect than do it myself and get it wrong”, he revealed.
