Afrobeats artiste, Worlasi Langani known by the stage name Worlasi, says it’s the loss of anyone who does not appreciate Ghanaian artistes.
In a Facebook post on Tuesday, March 16, the Nukata artiste said he will never let any industry player make him feel less about his capabilities.
His comments come after Ghanaian acts were denigrated on social media for their perceived poor showing in international awards compared to their Nigerian counterparts.
Nigerian acts Burna Boy and Wizkid won Best Global Music Album award and Best Music Video for Brown Skin Girl with Beyoncé and Blue Ivy at the 63rd Grammy Awards last Sunday and that has triggered a lot of backlash from fans, while artistes including Samini and Stonebwoy have had an online banter over it.
However, Worlasi is not having any dragging from people. He wrote: “I will never ever let any “industry player” in Ghana make me feel I’m not doing good music. NEVER. We made a classic ... I’m a genius!!!
"Our industry is full of who knows who and who PAYS who. Only few ple genuinely play Quality music that THEY know can cross boarders and make this country be known for its authenticity!!! And I bless anyone that ever supported me and my music.
"I am not a marketing genius but I’m doing my best and won’t stop till the whole world sees it.
"As for you people dier continue insulting artistes. Most of all these people bashing Ghanaian acts don’t even play their music ... smh ..
YOU PEOPLE KNOW HOW TO TALK BUT YOU CANNOT DELIVER !!!!!!
IF YOU KNOW SO MUCH WHY ARE WE WHERE WE ARE ????
BECAUSE I FOCUS ON MUSIC HARLDY COMMENT ON THESE THINGS BECAUSE I HATE UNNECESSARY ATTENTION!!!
But hence forth I won’t take it from any player. You are not on my team !!!
AND IF YOU DONT APPRECIATE US ITS YOUR LOSS...
I AM GOLDEN - we no start Dey shine sef (sic)."
