I Can’t Be Easily Replicated – M.anifest

It’s very common these days to see other musicians doing renditions of songs of their

colleagues in the Ghanaian music industry.

According to rapper Kwame Ametepe Tsikata, popularly known in showbiz as M.anifest

however he has not spotted anyone trying to do same with his songs.

The ‘godMC’ explained that this is because he cannot be easily replicated due to the level

of his skills.

“I don’t think I can easily be replicated because I have built my skill level and tried to find my identity that you can’t just replicate what I am doing,” he noted.

M.anifest further stated that, his genre of music is pretty odd from what Ghanaians are

used to and this differentiates him from his counterparts.

 “I am okay that mine has been a gradual build of the under-dog and even now that I am quiet known, there’s still the under-dog status in the sense that, I really go left when the others are going right,” he added during an interview on Ghanaweb.

his name “in vain” replied with ‘godMC’. As industry persons argued over whether or not it was

necessary for M.anifest to jab Sarkodie, the BET award-winner replied the ‘godMC’ track with ‘Kanta’.

As reported by GhanaWeb TV, M.anifest had this to say after the show:

“Before we went onto the stage, I think we sat in his car and I think we talked about an hour or more as musical comrades. It’s always been mutual respect so I think we had to show it to the people”.

Calling the ‘beef’ he had with Sarkodie a competitive rivalry, M.anifest stated that history has been made with his re-union.

He added: “A lot of people thought because of the competitive rivalry we had they didn’t realize the mutual respect we have for each other.

Even before we went on stage we spend a lot of time talking, just having a conversation because we both have respect for each other. And we just thought that this would be a great moment to show people that and we did.

“I think we made history together, we both have mutual respect for each other… I miss what people thought was such great ‘beef’. It’s just a competitive rivalry, there is nothing.

“We didn’t plan it like years ago, people thought it was orchestrated, we met recently and we had a quick conversation about it and big ups to the brethren for honoring his word.”

Other artistes who performed at the event were Simi, Burna Boy, Kwesi Arthur, King Promise and Efya.

VGMA 2018: Most Popular Songs Awards Shouldn’t Be Determined By Votes – M.anifest

Awards-winning Hip-hop artiste, M.anifest says it is unfair to use votes in determining “Most Popular Song” at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).

M.anifest stated that he understands the motive behind the votes. However, he added that “it creates possibilities of rigging since those with money can buy votes”.

He therefore called on Charter House, organizers of the awards to change the metrics and basis upon which they determine the  winners in this category and reconsider the use of votes.

M.anifest was speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM.

“I get the idea behind the votes but I think it’s flawed. I would change it if I were in control. It becomes an election so the one with money wins…”, he said.

M.anifest, born Kwame Ametepee Tsikata, is however not the first person to call on the redress of this issue. Many industry players have called on the awards scheme to check the criteria used in selecting winners of that award.

This follows Patapaa Amisty’s huge lost in the Most Popular Song of the Year awards at the recently ended VGMAs.

Patapaa, who was highly tipped to win the award with his ‘One Corner’ song lost to his Northern partner, Fancy Gadam’s Total Cheat.

PRO of Charterhouse, in an interview on Hitz FM, indicated that the votes collated by the organizers suggested that Fancy’s fans voted massively for his victory in the category.

Notwithstanding, most fans of Patapaa and some other industry players felt he was cheated. This is because for them, Patapaa’s “One Corner” song went international compared to Fancy Gadam’s “Total Cheat”.

M.anifest further urged all industry players to pay less attention to awards. This according to him is because he believes it has the tendency to lower their efforts in the industry.

Women Are Better Songwriters – M.anifest

Award-winning Ghanaian Rapper, M.anifest says women are better songwriters.

The God MC rapper made this revelation when he visited the BBC to promote two UK headline performances this weekend.

He joined broadcaster Veronique Edwards in an engaging Facebook Live chat that dished on numerous topics – his music influences, his fashion sense and latest projects on Wednesday.

According to him, women songwriters give an interesting perspective to music and they are refreshing to listen to.

Asked why he thinks women in the music industry are few, the ‘Nowhere Cool’ crooner attributed it to the power dynamics.

M.anifest believes it is down to power dynamics where some men feel threatened by the talents of women, they prefer to let them be in the background.

M.anifest speaks;

“I want to see more women producers…I think that will change the sound and make it more interesting,” he said.

The reigning best VGMA rapper said pitching two female singers against one another is unhealthy. This he explained is because there are lots of space at the summit for everyone. M.anifest believes that the opposite way is rather helpful because it’s more exciting.

“It makes it more exciting because you just can’t have this testosterone-heavy scene which makes it one way. I am anti one way.

“On every show I do, I try to balance the energy with women…I love working and performing with women artiste that is why I worked with them on every album.”

Don’t Be In The Music Industry For Money – M.anifest

M.anifest has stated that if you want to make money; music is the wrong profession to go into. He stated this while on the Citi Breakfast Show. He said, “I always tell people that you don’t come into something like music wanting to make money, so if you do, just forget it. It goes beyond that and the fact of the reality is that a lot of people do not succeed,” he added.
However, M.anifest says he does not regret going into music saying it has brought about new opportunities to him.
He further added, “When you take the road less traveled you become an artiste and you do all these things that require a certain level of risk and unpredictability, you have to really have a strong sense of conviction that this is your calling and for me I have that. And also the fact that the longer I do this the more I can assume different roles not just be simply a musician but be many other different things, sometimes playing other rolls using the music as a vehicle. I’ve had the opportunity to write articles for the Guardian. I think every musician here is forced to be an entrepreneur”.
These remarks are interesting as it shows the struggles most musicians face and the opportunities that can present themselves when you persevere.
