Controversial Ghanaian Twi rapper, Kwaw Kesse, has stated that a little strife between artist is actual a healthy thing for the music industry.
According to Kwaw Kesse, two artists publicly "beefing" is a good thing for the industry. He stated that the public feuding helps keep artists on their toes. It urges them to write a little more, put more creativity in their work in order to counter their adversaries.
The CEO of Madtime Entertainment's comments come in the wake of a beef between himself and Shatta Wale, the self professed king of Dance of Hall in Ghana.
Not too long ago, Kwaw Kesse challenged claims from both Shatta Wale and Fuse ODG, both of whom claimeed that they owned $1 million homes in Ghana. Since then, the two seemed to have been at loggerheads.

“Any Ghanaian musician who claims he has a one-million-dollar house or mansion is a liar," he said.
Speaking to Adom FM’s Pope Skinny, Kwaw Kesse, born Emmanuel Botswe, said that the time had to quash his beef with Shatta Wale and make some money.
“The game is showbiz, that is, ‘show’ and ‘business’. We are done with the show part of the game so what we are doing now is the business part of the game,” he stressed.
Kwaw Kesse recently featured on one of Shatta Wale's recent tracks titled "Allo Life", produced by Williesbeatz. The track pretty much surprised both artists' fans considering the fact that everyone thought they two were "beefing".
“Shatta Wale called me that school ‘poppy’, let’s end the misunderstanding among our fans with some track, so he sent me the beat and I rode on,” he related.
