-Sonnie Badu called for an end to the 'One Corner' dance craze saying it was dangerous
-Adom FM presenter feels his criticism is needless
The 'One Corner' song and the dance accompanying has divided public opinion since it burst onto the scene a few weeks ago.
While many think of the song and dance as entertaining and have rendered their own versions, others have criticised the song as lacking any merit.
One of such critics is UK-based Ghanaian gospel musician, Sonnie Badu who has called for a ban of the ‘One Corner’ dance which he describes as potentially harmful to those who partake in it.
“It’s getting dangerous. I saw someone climb an electric pole, I saw someone climb a tipper truck, I saw someone run under a car, and I saw someone dancing while cars were moving. Now this is getting out of hands. Do you want to wait until you hear somebody dead before you say ‘one corner’ killed him?” he retorted in a video posted on social media .
But in an unsolicited response to Sonnie Badu, host of Adom FM’s flagship Entertainment Hall, Michael Boateng, popularly known as Mike 2, has questioned the motive of the gospel musician's criticism which he says is 'needless'.
According to the presenter, statements like the one from Sonnie Badu could kill talents and wondered why he would do that if not out of “jealousy”.
"The ‘One Corner’ has come to stay thus the so-called celebrities oppose to can go and burn the sea", Mike 2 charged in a Facebook video.
