Support talent and not hype – Ras Kuuku


Dancehall artiste Ras Kuuku has urged Ghanaians to support musicians who are talented and not the ones who are only benefitting from hype but have no talent.

“Some GH artistes are hyped for no reason. Artistes such as Wiyaala, myself, Osagyefo, Akwaboah and a host of others should be very big by now but when you talk about top 10 musicians in Ghana our names will not be mentioned,” he told Graphic Showbiz.

According to Ras Kuuku real name Kojo Korankye, if an artist is not willing to pay huge amounts of money for promotion or create some controversies to be in the news all the time then he/she can forget about their songs being on the lips of every Ghanaian.

“I don’t want to create unnecessary controversies to get me out there, I want my music to speak for me,” he said.

Ras Kuuku said radio presenters are the best people to help give talented acts the needed push to succeed because they have the platform.

He is building a reputation as a wonderful performer with great stagecraft and he told Graphic Showbiz that he always wants to give his best anytime he mounts the stage.

Ras Kuuku recently launched his third album Kuntunkununku on which he collaborated with acts such as Samini, Stonebwoy, MzVee, Rudebwoy Ranking, Black Prophet and Yes Jah.

The 21-track album has songs like Almighty, Only You, Mama, Guitar, Do Wo Nua, Eye Red People, Jamming, One Africa, Your Eye Ball, My Holy Girl and Me Mpaebo.
