Amerado- who is fast establishing a strong reputation for himself as a great songwriter and freestyler said people trying to pitch new kid on the block Yaw Tog against Sarkodie are doing more harm than good to the industry.
According to him, such comparisons give the younger ones the opportunity to disrespect the older artists.
“The fact that Daddy Lumba or Amakye Dede is no longer releasing songs does not make Kuami Eugene or KiDi better than them. It is quite unfortunate that this is going on in our industry and it is not fair. How can you compare Yaw Tog to Sarkodie as some industry persons are already doing?
“These young acts will start feeling they have arrived and disrespected the old ones, which should not be so. You cannot compare King Promise to Kwabena Kwabena or Ofori Amponsah in any way,” he told Graphic Showbiz recently.
According to Amerado, he had to walk out of a live interview at Kingdom FM because the presenter kept asking whether he was better than Sarkodie, which he felt was disrespectful.
“When I said I didn’t like his line of questions, the presenter kept repeating the same question and in order not to disrespect Sarkodie I had to walk out of the studio. These things should not be encouraged. There should be respect in the music industry. Sarkodie has earned my respect over the years,” he said.
