For a rapper like Strongman who believes his rap prowess cannot be matched, he sees it wrong for Medikal to say that he saved the Ghanaian rap industry from dying four years ago.
Strongman who released his STN EP album last year says if his songs were nominated by the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) as Best Rapper of the Year, Medikal would have no plaque to brag about.
He added that, Medikal hasn’t dropped enough songs to make him a messiah who saved Ghana’s rap.
“How many songs did Medikal drop last year? He can only boast of How Much. Last year, I held rap down. Charcoal’s controversy was about 2 weeks non-stop…I don’t wanna take things personal, I only wanted him to know he shouldn’t have said that,” Strongman said.
After swerving social media trolls by winning 2019 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) Rapper of the Year and Hip-Hop Artiste of the Year, Medikal says he has saved the rap genre from dying.
The rapper took to his Instagram page to say since he emerged on the music scene, the rap genre has elevated to another height.
According to him, for the past 4 years, he has been the Messiah who came to keep rap alive.
But Strongman said having hit songs doesn’t mean make one a good rapper.
“When we talk about rap it’s not about hit songs. When you go outside (USA), Kendrick Lamar and the rest do rap. Sometimes, they don’t have hit songs, but they know when it comes to rap, its certain they are winning. You will see Migos and Lil Pump getting the billion views but they wouldn’t get best rapper. Their hit songs don’t matter there,” Strongman explained.
