Ghanaian artiste, Epixode has made a bold statement about the state of music in Ghana, particularly that of the dancehall genre.
In a new interview with MzGee on Simply Showbiz on TV3, he stated that Samini is a Godfather, and therefore should not be ranked alongside artistes he referred to as "kids."
He made the assertion whilst speaking about the competitors for the 'Dancehall artiste of the Year' category at the 2021 Ghana Music Awards.
"I think Samini should be honoured as a legend. He shouldn’t be mixed up with the kids. He deserves too much to be placed in these categories because he actually paved the way for some of us to follow," Epixode said per a 3news report.
The winner of the category will be revealed on Saturday, June 26, 2021, when the awards will be held.

The leaked audio recording angered some indigenes of the Ashanti Kingdom, who demanded the man of God apologises for his demeaning comments against the Asantehene.

According to him, the accomplishments of Otumfuo are “evident and manifest for all to see.”
