I’m a proud pioneer of pidgin rap in Ghana – Shaker confirms

Published

on

Fundamentally, a pidgin or pidgin language is a simplified means of linguistic communication, as it is constructed impromptu, or by convention, between individuals or groups of people.

Pidgin is not the native language of any speech community, but is instead learned as a second language. In Ghana, pidgin is mostly used by the youth in tertiary and senior high schools.

The group Native Funk Lords (NFL) came out with pidgin rap; the originators of the genre were from the Kay’s Frequency camp: Tinniequaye, Cil, Jake & Eddy Blay.

Pidgin usage in Ghanaian music became predominant in the early 2000s with the likes of Shaker, Bra Kevin, Killmatic, Jayso, E.L, Wanluv and co.

Shaker in a celebrity interview with Cape Coast’s finest radio presenter Amansan Krakye on Radio Central said

“In Ghana, I’m so proud to be one of the pioneers for the use of pidgin in hip-hop and rap music.

Now, as you can see pidgin has gained international recognition and it is being used on BBC”.

Elikplim Yao Atiemo aka Shaker went on further to state that nowadays more artistes have developed the habit of using pidgin in their songs.

“These days most of the singing are done in pidgin and even those who rap in Twi adopt some pidgin words, so I think pidgin has come to stay”.

“However, my advice to the youth is that they should first of all grasp the proper usage of English language before hooking onto pidgin”.

When Amansan Krakye asked Shaker why people note him for being too comical in his songs, he said

“These days I have stopped fooling in my songs. Using humour was the Lil Shaker days but now I’m Shaker so I have attached more seriousness to my songs”.

KING PROMISE ZOOMS IN ON SONGWRITING PROWESS

Published

on

Gregory Promise Bortey aka King Promise has touched on the supposed relationship with Serwaa Amihere, his songwriting prowess which led to the release of his latest single, Sisa.

According to the ‘CCTV’ hitmaker, rumours of Serwaa and him [King Promise] swelled on social media last month after they were spotted together at the christening of sound engineer, Killbeatz’s baby.

The Legacy Life Entertainment act in an interview with MzGee on TV3’s New Day indicated that, the public has been rooting for him [King Promise] to date the GHOne presenter which is totally wrong because he has not really thought about that.

The artiste stressed that he acknowledges the beauty of the warm-hearted media personality, but music is his sole priority for now.

He says he is committed to engaging in a relationship with Serwaa if nature decides for them in the nearest future.

He further revealed that he loves to write songs for artistes such as Efya, Medikal (Ayekoo), Mr Eazi, among others mainly because he admires their sound and hence, can’t write songs for just anyone except he loves their vibe.

Meanwhile, King Promise is out with a brand new banger titled “Sisa” with production assistance from Ghanaian music producer, GuiltyBeatz.
