BEEF ALERT!! VIDEO BELOW!!
Beef, battle, competition, rivalry or whatever you may call it, is a major part of music. The Ghanaian music industry is no different. We have seen several rivalries dating back to the days of the Lumba Brothers which was composed of both Daddy Lumba and Nana Acheampong whose split shocked the country. The competition that developed between the two made them great solo artistes and eventually legends. Their precedence has been replicated down the years as we have seen other Ghanaians compete one way or the other. Most notable of these rivalries are the Exdoe-Chicago beef, Okyeame Kwame-Obrafo beef, Shatta Wale Samini beef, Shatta Wale-Yaa Pono beef and recently Sarkodie-Manifest beef. What has been rare is a beef between Gospel artistes. This is because they have held a code which keeps them in check because they seek not their interest but that of God. The likes of Daughters of Glorious Jesus, Tagoe sisters and Joe Beechem created a harmonious environment which encouraged them to push and admire one another. We however find ourselves in interesting times which all genres try to compete for the ultimate spot. This has led Gospel artistes to employ tactics which are otherwise not expected in their line of work. In recent times, we have seen Gospel artistes doing anything including faking car accidents to stay relevant.
One of Ghana’s most watched shows, the Delay show will feature popular Gospel musician Brother Sammy on Sunday in what seeks to reveal a controversial twist between him and fellow Gospel artiste Ernest Opoku. In the 30 seconds video promo, Brother Sammy made some strong accusations about his comrade sighting that he was advised to be careful dealing with him. A “heated” Brother Sammy called Ernest Opoku a small child. He went on to reveal that he had enough reasons to believe that Ernest Opoku has murderous intensions about him. Check out the video below
