- King Ayisoba has thrown a street battle challenge to Shatta Wale and other Ghanaian 'street kings'
- He claims he can pull a much larger crowd locally and internationally than the 'so-called' big artistes
Traditional Kologo music artiste, King Ayisoba known in real life as Albert Apoozore, has waded into ‘king of the street’ challenge and has thrown a battle to self-proclaiming dancehall king Shatta Wale and other artistes for a street supremacy test.
Speaking in an interview on Accra-based Happy FM, the “I want to see you my father” hit maker indicated that his unique style of music was capable of pulling more crowd as compared to the likes of Ghana’s fastest rapper Sarkodie, and Shatta Wale.
He reiterated the fact that he was bigger and better than Sarkodie and Shatta Wale.
King Ayisoba went on to state that his style of music was much appreciated both in Ghana and on the foreign stage and as a result he was the actual king of the street and not Shatta Wale.
He said as a result of his immense popularity both home and abroad, he did not in any way feel threatened by the booming careers of multiple award-winning artistes including Shatta Wale born Charles Nii Armah Mensah, and Sarkodie, known in real life as Michael Owusu Addo.
King Ayisoba went ahead to throw a challenge to Shatta Wale over “King of the Street” title.
He said that he was sure of receiving a lot of praise over Shatta Wale as a testament of his tight hold over the streets of Ghana.
The “Champion no easy” song maker came into the limelight with his unique style of music after his song, “I want to see you my father” was awarded the Traditional Song of the year award at the 2007 Ghana music awards.
He went on to feature Samini, Sydney, Kontihene, Kwabena Kwabena and Kwaku-T in his debut Album. He has also been to several countries and staged a number of concerts.
