Hunger has forced many rappers to sing- Ayesem fires Amerado and others

Ghanaian rapper and singer, Ayesem, has expressed his criticism towards fellow Ghanaian rappers who have transitioned to singing.

According to Ayesem, surviving as a rapper in the Ghanaian entertainment industry is a challenging task.

In an interview on Property FM, the artist behind the popular track “Koti” highlighted the struggle that rappers face in securing performance opportunities due to the lack of commercial appeal in their music.

Ayesem pointed out that many rappers have resorted to singing to increase their chances of getting booked for shows and ultimately making a living.

He attributed this shift to the hunger for success and financial stability that drives artists to adapt to the demands of the industry.

The rapper emphasized that the current system in Ghana favors commercial music over rap, leading to a significant number of rappers abandoning their original style in pursuit of better opportunities.

In his candid assessment, Ayesem acknowledged the tough reality faced by rappers in the music scene, stating that the lack of show bookings has forced many to make the switch to singing.

He urged aspiring artists to be aware of the challenges within the industry and make strategic decisions to ensure their survival and success.
