Originator of the hiplife movement, Reggie Rockstone has sent out some advise to the female rappers in Ghana not to allow themselves to be bullied by anyone.
He gave this piece of advice when he was speaking on YFM’s Midmorning Show.
The Grandpapa disclosed that he is always happy when he sees female rappers soaring high in the Ghanaian music industry.
“I want Eno to listen to this. I want Freda Rhymes to listen to this. I want all you females to listen to this. From the very inception or beginning of hiplife, I included women straight. Ms Naa is on a song with me called death for life.
“There was always that inclusion which I felt was very necessary. So if I see the likes of Eno rapping then I get excited. From the very beginning, I knew it was necessary to do so,” he said
Reggie Rockstone also pointed out that gender and other divisions won’t help the growth of talents in the country.
“Females who are on the mic, don’t let them bully you with that tag, ‘female emcee’. You are an emcee! You are a rapper! I am saying this because this is what they do to bamboozle the women. ‘Oh the female rappers, oh the African rapper’. No! Sarkodie is a rapper. He is just a rapper from Africa. Rap does not need physical strength. It is about the brain and tongue,” he stated.
