Kumawood actor, Sumsum Ahoufe talks about the new crop of musicians.
According to him, Kuami Eugene, King Promise and the rest are doing very well for themselves currently. However, there is no comparison to big names like Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, and Shatta Wale. This is because they are miles ahead of the up and coming acts.
Moreover, he stressed that should there be the need for any international competition today, the new crop of musicians cannot defend the country. However, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy and Sarkodie can. Therefore, he believes that likes of Kuami Eugene, Kidi, King Promise and others are just walking through the industry.
Also, Sumsum used the Ghana movie industry as an example. He made the point that even though they are all stars to some extent, should they turn for any program with Kwadwo Nkansah Lilwin, he (Lilwin) will get more attention than all the actors and actresses in Ghana now. This is because he reigns supreme
He made these statements on ‘Celebrity Ride with Zionfelix’
The host asked about the reggae-dancehall ‘grandpapa’, Samini. According to him, Samini is a very old man in the literal sense. He ended by telling Ghanaian music lovers that they should stop deceiving these young ones that they have arrived because they still have a long way to go.
