Renowned Ghanaian music producer, Mark Okraku Mantey says Emelia Brobbey's first attempt at music with her 'Fame Kɔ' song is way better than that of most musicians in Ghana.
Defending the Kumawood actress, Mark Okraku Mantey said Ghanaians are being hard on the Emelia because she crossed over from the film industry to the music industry.
In an interview on Hitz FM and monitored by YEN.com.gh said the music industry sometimes exhibits a hostile attitude towards people who try to cross over from other sectors of the entertainment space.
"These same people, who are in the music bracket, if you listen to them and find out if Emelia doesn’t have a better song than most of them. But we take them as normal because they’re in music,” he said.
He added that Ghanaians are being overly hard on Emelia and they need to stop it.
“The music people, there is a way they are able to meader their way into film and get acceptance” adding that he cannot pinpoint the particular problem when the situation is reversed.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Okyeame Kwame has stated that he will love to feature on the remix of Kumawood actress and singer Emelia Brobbey's famous 'Fame Kɔ' song.
Emelia Brobbey's 'Fame Kɔ' single has been criticized by some Ghanaians, who say the song was poorly executed and that the actress-turned singer does not have a good singing voice.
On social media, Emelia Brobbey was roundly mocked, with some netizens questioning whether it was necessary for her to have released the song.
But Okyeame Kwame said the 'Fame Kɔ' song is not a bad song at all and he will love to join Emelia Brobbey to work on a remix.
“It is a nice song and I love it; you know it is not usual for an actress to do such a song so I commend her for that.
I have listened to it and if Emelia should call me to say I need you on that song, I will gladly jump on it.
I love Highlife and I love Emelia as well, she has been a very good friend of mine for a long time. That song is great," the 'Woara' hitmaker said.
