Ghanaian rapper Pappy Kojo’s former manager, Ameyaw Kissih Debrah has admitted that his artiste’s core fans are students of the high school level – J.H.S and S.H.S.
The celebrity blogger who managed the musician during his heydays picked Joey B over him due to his versatility when asked to choose who his best is between Joey B and Pappy Kojo on the ‘Who Is Who?’ segment of Celebrity Ride With Zionfelix show. Ameyaw explaining his choice said Joey B aside his rap prowess can also sing but his former artiste cannot do same even though he has tried it a couple of times.
Reacting to comments that the ‘Awoa’ hitmaker’s career has taken a nosedive, the celebrity and lifestyle blogger said otherwise. He opined that the Junior High School and Senior High School students who are the musician’s core fans still see him as their superstar. He further said even though he is struggling to get another hit song, most Ghanaians still enjoy his old tunes.
Ameyaw Debrah revealed in the conversation with Zionfelix, host of the show that he used to fight a lot with Pappy Kojo because he was refusing to reason with him. The father of one on why they used to argue disclosed that “Pappy was always on keeping an image rather than doing things that will put him in the face of the people.”
He added that the rapper refused on several occasions to collaborate with up and coming musicians because he felt bigger than them. The boss of Ameyaw Debrah Media continued that he advised him on several occasions to work with young artistes but he refused to adhere to his words and that generated a lot of arguments for them.
Mr. Kissi Debrah divulged on the show that the back and forth became unbearable for him so he had to pass over the artiste real name Jason Gaisie to his junior brother, Paa Debrah to continue the managerial duties.
Not just the unecesary arguments, Ameyaw also said he was busy with his online business so he felt the musician needed someone who could work with him as a full time amanager.
