Rapper Tinny has cautioned Ghanaians not to compare him with 2012 BET award winning rapper Sarkodie.
Tinny noted that there is no basis for the comparism as clearly his rap skils is expressed in the Ga language while Sarkodie’s is in Twi.
“I wouldn’t have to compare myself to Sarkodie. He does Twi, I am Ga, you know. Like a defender and a striker, they are two different positions.
Sarkodie’s colleague rapper, however cautions that Ghanaians should monitor the Tema based rapper for at least a decade before passing judgement on him as being the best in the country.
Speaking to Flexy on e.tv Ghana’s entertainment review programme, Talk Showbiz, Tinny mentioned that Sarkodie is young in the industry, hence there should not be a basis for the comparism. Tinny y however cautioned Ghanaians who hail Sarkodie as the fastest rapper to monitor him closely to see if he would still maintain that title come 10 years time. Tinny added that Sarkodie could be doing marvelously well in the music industry but he is still young.
“When Sarkodie ‘chop’ ten years, then we see,” he said in pidgin English. He is a baby but he is doing well. Yeah. He is taking Ghana to some level but I can’t rate him with myself just like Jay Z and Lil Wayne. There is no way you can compare the two. Never,” hee,mphasized.
When asked to compare his performance to that of Sarkodie in recent times he noted that their genre of rap is different, hence no need for the comparism.
Known in private life as Nii Addo Quaynor, Tinny who is currently working on his fifth studio album revealed that his father is no longer his manager as his record label; Kankpe Records is currently under his management.
Tinny also explained that his absence from major performances and events is due to his Globacom endorsement.
“In some way it has (affected me) because people always say, ‘we don’t see you on stage as before. Though you don’t see me on stage, you still hear my songs on the air. You might not be seeing me on stage but you can still get my video on YouTube and watch it, he explained
Tinny promises to be bigger in the New Year stating that 2016 is his action year. He urged his fans to watch out for new Tinny all together.
