Ghanaian rapper Kofi Kinaata has slammed DJs for playing and promoting bad songs in place of good songs.
According to the rapper, many good songs do not make it to the top because the artistes do not have money to push it.
In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, Kofi Kinaata expressed his worry at how DJs play bad songs and leave the good ones.
Kofi Kinaata noted that some DJs tend to ignore good songs from up and coming artistes while they promote the bad ones from top artistes.
This development he said was worrying since good songs must be promoted so they can make waves over the bad ones.
“It was difficult for a song like Chocho Mucho by Bless to become a hit just because he didn’t have the money to push it but other songs I don’t even regard as songs are doing so well," he said.
"The DJs will not play a song, especially from an up and coming artiste, but would prefer to play a bad song from a popular artiste which is not cool," he added.
Pertaining to himself, Kofi Kinaata revealed that he does not record bad songs just to become popular.
He disclosed that in composing his songs, he thinks about how the song can impact the society positively.
He admitted that even though there is pressure to record trending songs, he does not conform to such pressure.
Even though most of his songs have made hits over time, Kofi Kinaata said he did not release them with the intention to make hits.
The 'Sweetie Pie' hitmaker urged DJs to promote good songs even when the artistes haven't paid them to promote it.
