Be original – Ambolley tasks Shattawale, Stonebwoy

The first musician from Ghana and the world to formally incorporate rap forms into local highlife rhythms, Gyedu Blay Ambolley has tasked dancehall artistes Shattawale and Stonebwoy to be original.

According to Ambolley, there’s a big difference between his era and now, because during his time music was used to educate people about life.

“Our era we used to do music which talks about life  so people could learn from it. Those times music was human to human… there’s a big difference between my time and now”, he said. 

In an interview with Agyemang Prempeh on Legends show on TV XYZ the walking down the street hitmaker revealed that he feels sorry for the current artiste.

“I feel sorry for todays musicians because anyone who wakes up is a dancehall artiste.. they speak patois in their songs which doesn’t make them original.. we can’t  take patois away from its origin meanwhile Ghana has its genre too”, he added.


He further explained that, dancehall music in Ghana will only make it locally and blame Djs for not doing their work well.
