WTF: Chris Brown Talks About AZONTO On BET, But He Says The Dance Is A Nigerian Thing…

Chris Brown Talks About Azonto

It seems Chris Brown coming to Ghana and introducing Nigerian artiste-Wizkid on stage to do Azonto was not a mere mistake. In fact, Chris Brown thinks Azonto is a Nigerian thing…

Probably he is taking the piss out of Ghanaians by failing to credit Ghana with the dance which has gained international recognition…

Talking about his new album ‘X’ and music video ‘Fine China’ on BET 106 & Park yesterday, Chris Brown mentioned that he has incorporated a dance from Africa called Azonto into his dance moves in the video. He even went ahead to request for a tune to be played, so he can demonstrated Azonto to the millions of viewers.

Unfortunately, he linked Nigerians Wizkid to the dance, saying he learnt it from him-that is not so bad. But he categorically added that, Azonto is a Nigerian thing…REALLY?

This is like me going on CNN to say EBA is a Ghanaian food…

Is Chris Brown taking the piss out of Ghana or is it that he does not know the truth about Azonto?

If you are reading this post and you are on twitter, tweet @ChrisBrown  and say; For the last time, Azonto is a Ghana dance, get it straight man @GhanaCelebrity!

    Am not surprised cos i have been watching many videos on YouTube by Nigerians saying azonto is from Nigeria which is really funny ,

    Is not a big deal Nigerians will always copy from us a son mimicking any thing from his father is not a crime…

    And what astonishes me is if you ask a Nigerian in presence of a Ghanaian that where is azonto from he/she will say Ghana but in the absence of Ghanaian he/she will say azonto is a Nigerian thing …

    Obasanjo even said azonto is from Nigeria

    Ok so as much as I was sooo furious and couldn’t wait to hear what breezy said,im calmed now because chris didn’t say the azonto dance is a nigerian thing,all I know,the blogger is twisting his words,….he said he learnt it from a Nigerian artist in Nigeria….Nigeria do the azonto,so ofcourse if he went to Nigeria,yeah he will know about the azonto. if he had Ghanaian friends like he does in Nigeria,im sure he woulda known better….stop tripping guys and keep calm,i know for some reason chris robs everbody the wrong way even if he didn’t wrong anyone so I get y’all frustration but y’all need to calm down on this. calm down.!!!

    @honey, From the whole video, there is no doubt that Chris Brown is saying or meant that, to the best of his knowledge, Azonto is a Nigerian creation, cos he vividly say, people should not credit him for the creation of the dance. It is not his but rather Wizkid from Nigeria taught him, it is a Nigerian. If anything, he could have said, Wizkid from Nigeria taught him and it is a Ghanaian thing or a Ghanaian creation

    I dissed Breezy but I’m taking back my diss. I think the fault for this one should go to Wizkid & not Breezy. Why? Because C. Brown was honest enough to admit that he learnt the dance from Wizkid & he said ‘I won’t take any credit for it, I learnt it from Nigeria, it’s a Nigerian thingy’. ie: Breezy thought the dance was Nigerian since he learnt it from a Nigerian artist & so it was that artist who should have been honest with Breezy about the dance’s origin. It was artistically dishonest for Wizkid to pass the dance off as a Nigerian dance. Same thing goes for the whole P-Square alingo thingy. It was artistically dishonest for them to take the azonto dance, add a few steps to it & then try to pass it off as a new invention. This is one thing I admire about Beyoncé. She used dance moves from the tofo tofo group from Mozambique for her music video Run the World but she was decent enough to credit them even in her documentary. I think that it’s only decent for all future artists from Nigeria or the rest of Africa who use the azonto dance to credit it to Ghana. Plus, although at first, I just wanted to ignore C. Brown, I think like the writer suggested, those of us on twitter should create a twitter war & let Breezy know that Azonto is a Ghanaian dance. Peace out

    It will b too bad for u guys to start another WAR again on this trend for little issues like this. It was never stated in this report that wizkid told Chris that the dance is NigerIan, rather Chris is ASSUMING THAT SINCE HE LEANT IT FROM A NIGERIAN it would probably be Nigerian. I would only blame wizkid for misinformation if it is report from Chris himself that it was wizkid who TOLD that the dance was Nigerian. Again rather than blame Nigeria for every wrong tins in Ghana, i would blame Ghanians for not being proactive themselves .people like samine ought to b teaching his foregin mate about African music and not let Nigeria take the lead everytime. We are waiting on samine to do a MIx on this one too, since that is all he knows how to do. Shame on him, when wizkid was TEACHing Chris Azonto were was him?.for the records Azonto is Ghanian and No Nigerian is claiming, in d words of TOnto Azonto is Azonto while Alingo is alingo.PEACE

    @Emma, well articulated response u just spoke my mind. Quoting for m the last statement of the first paragraph ‘chris brown THINKS azonto is a Nigerian thing’ again i wonder if simply English is simply. Even the OP is contradicting himself looking for ways to land the blame of Nigerian. So since when did Nigerians start controlling the THOUGHs of Chris brown, or did Chris tell them that wizzy told him . The twitter war would not end the story rather u people should contribute money and give to samine to go to the states and tell breezy to his face that he is wrong, Wizkid is going international Haters are hating. Samine should go now and teach usher azonto now ooooooooooooooo, not when Davido would teach usher azonto them we all start shouting, 9ja4life.

    @Emma, How are Ghanaians not being proactive enough? Fuse ODG just made a song with Wyclef. For Pete’s sake, even American soldiers in Afghanistan danced azonto & put it on their youtube page (maybe you should google it). We live in a global village now & thanks to youtube, people don’t even need to ‘sell’ a dance before international celebs will find it. How did Beyoncé discover Tofo Tofo? Was it not on youtube? They didn’t ‘sell’ the dance to her. In any case, we don’t need Nigerians to sell our dance for us, thank you very much. Please, like I said,if you want to imitate someone’s dance at least credit them for it! But don’t do it & say you invented it or add 3 steps & call it a different name.

    @Echa, I don’t think I’m being too harsh. Let’s not pretend. If a white man comes to my country & I make eba for him to eat, would he not ask me how I made the food, where the food is from etc? And if at the end of the day, he goes away with the view that eba is a Ghanaian meal, whose fault is it? That’s why I blame Wizkid & also Psquare. I don’t have a problem with people dancing a particular dance but like I said, it’s dishonest as an artist to pick up an idea, dance etc from someone & not credit the person but pass it off as your own. How would you feel if tomorrow you watch Oprah & an American artiste comes on wearing lace & gele & tells Oprah that her Ghanaian friend gave it to her & that lace & gele is a Ghanaian thingy. Would you be pleased? Would it not mean that the Ghanaian friend misinformed her?

    I’m glad Chris brown did that, next time Ghanaians will think twice before spending such a ridiculous amount for an American star. Ah! Over a million dollar for that kid we still have poverty in Africa; Come one. It serves you right. you go learn!

    @Dr. Miyagi, I saw a clip of the concert Ghanaians paid him to perform in and I was amazed when he started doing the azonto dance, and if I’m not mistaking he was on stage with a local Ghanaian artist. So naturally i assumed he knew the dance originated from GH, so for him to discredit the origin of this dance is a slap on the face to GH, especially since he demonstrated he knew what he was doing at GH’s independence concert. That’s my opinion on the matter, and to be frank I’m over it.

    @yolanda, sweetness, I agree with you. I’ve always been irritated when I think that RLG actually spent that amount of money on him. To me, that’s the dumbest thing they could ever have done (pardon my language but I become passionate when I’m talking about the welfare of my country). So in a case, it serves as right that he acted like a brat when he got here- refusing limo service, smoking weed on stage & now passing off azonto as a Nigerian dance. Next time, RLG will use that money for better stuff

    @27cдгibre(Ф_ф), why are you so angry? Is it because Azonto is the only natural resource we have? What have they stolen from us? Was Michael Jackson the first to do the moonwalk? Didn’t he take it from James Brown and add a twist? Did James Brown say he was a thief? Yet everyone says the moonwalk originated from MJ. How many Nigerians are there in the world? How many could you have possibly met? Yet you all come here making generalizations. So what if Chris Brown thinks the dance is from Nigeria? Send him a tweet correcting this assumption. Stop winning like angry brats.

    This is the problem with Africans. We bear so much animosities towards ourselves, & would rather see an American or European prosper to the detriment of a fellow African. Will all this argument bout the origin of Azonto change the price of rice in the market? Truth be told, Azonto gained prominence only because Nigeria embraced the dance,& popularised it. Go ask some South Africans, they’d tell U Azonto is Nigerian because its the Nigerian artists they see pushing the dance thru. You can imagine CB was taught the dance by a Nigerian celeb, Ghanaians owe Nigerians big time for advertising Azonto!! We’re turning this whole thing into a country war. SHAME ON ALL OF US AFRICANS!!! SHAME ON MOST OF THE COMMENTS HERE!!!

    @Kay Jay, and that is where I disagree with you, Azonto didn’t ‘gain prominence’ because Nigerian artistes started imitating it. Check your facts. BBC & CNN were in Ghana interviewing folks about the dance long before Nigerian artistes started passing the dance off as their own. A Ghanaian musician Fuse ODG did a collabo with an International artiste because he started a youtube competition for people to submit azonto dance routines & this gained popularity. Indeed, the American soldiers in Afghanistan who posted their
    Azonto routine on youtube said that it was one of Fuse ODG’s dance competition videos that inspired them to do their routine.Azonto songs & the dance was so popular in the UK & being played in clubs there that a white guy in London danced it & posted the dance online only then did Dbanj go & look for that white guy to feature him in a video. Oh & since it hadn’t gained any prominence outside GH, where did the Nigerians learn it from? You should rather condemn this artistic fraud where people are trying to pass azonto off as their own rather than try to justify it.

    @Afia, is this the same Afia I thought I knew so well? You are “in shock” because of a mere dance routine you think has been imitated and credit not given to the originators? UNBELIEVABLE. So Azonto is such a GREAT National treasure and accomplishment that Ghanaians are willing to bandy insults for months on end now and even probably go to war? All any blogger who desires traffic to his site now needs to do is mention Azonto and Nigeria in one breath and record over 100 comments filled with passion, insults and bile within minutes. Well, for my Nigerian brothers and sisters who come to this and other Ghanaian blogs, kindly understand that this Azonto dance is important to Ghanaians; if you can, don’t dance or imitate it at all to avoid being called thieves and copycats. If you must dance it or a variation of it please, please, please credit GHANA with a loud caption in CAPITAL LETTERS. Don’t assume it is a mere inconsequential dance and belittle it so we and our brothers can continue to live in peace. I had sworn not to comment on this Azonto issue again but could not resist when I read all the apoplectic comments today, particularly the very pa.ss.ionate ones from AFIA. I hope we all can get over this idiocy because I want to believe there are more worthwhile things to command our attention than any dance whatsoever.

    Yolanda Reply:

    @Big Chief, finally someone who understands my pain, thank you and amen! Now can we all just move on to more important topics. This is so embarrassing. We as Africans are one people under the same sun. So all this disrespectful words, and unneccassary threats towards each other is redundent. FYI artists copy, take, steal from one onther all the time. In America, for instance, I hear songs from a new singer who never cridets the origin of the song or artist that sung the same song years before them. And most time if not all the time, I find out by hearing the original song version from the original artist by mere accident. So you see this Chris brown issue is very Trivial lets move on and just agree that we all steal or take, borrow something from somewhere or someone and most time fail to give credit where credit is due. Ya’ll have a blessed day or night depending on where you reside.

    @Big Chief & Yolanda: Why are you surprised that people are commenting on this topic? Because you think it’s trivial? Ah but that is the whole point man! It’s an entertainment website, of course it’s trivial topics we all discuss here to have relief!! If you want more serious topics & debates & stuff, maybe this isn’t the website for you, I suggest you try africanbusinessmagazine or even bbc’s Africa page. Is it not ironic that as ‘not serious’ as both of you consider this topic to be, you couldn’t resist commenting on it? (one of you even commented on it twice! :) ) And it’s time we stopped encouraging negative behavior with that tired ‘Oh we’re all one, we’re all Africans’ excuse. Sure, we’re all one but we must respect each other & give credit where credit is due. My sister & I are blood relatives, does it mean ‘because we’re all one’ I can go into her house anytime I like & start using her properties like they’re my own? You think South Africans will be amused if tomorrow Ghanaians start behaving like we created kwaito? Or Congolese people will clap for us when Ghanaian artistes try to pass off soukous as a Ghanaian dance to Americans? The fact that people copy & steal others’ artistic ideas all the time doesn’t mean it’s right.

    @Kay Jay, it is artistic dishonesty for Ghanaians to imitate Nigerian movies without crediting, I’d admit that (wish you’d admit same about the Nigerian artistes trying to pass azonto off as a Ghanaian thing but whatever.) Anyways, let’s not pretend that it’s only Ghanaian movie producers who are imitating other story lines. There are sooo many Nigerian movies that imitate American movies one that comes off the top of my head is
    ‘Break-up’ with Genevieve Nnaji, Ramsey Nouah etc. which clearly imitated ‘Two can play that game’? When Ghanaians acted princess Tyra & it picked up an AMAA award, after that there started a ‘Royal Season’ in Nigerian movies which is yet to calm down- every movie these days is Royal this or Royal that. However, I’d never use those instances to justify Ghanaian artistes imitating Nigerian artistes (be they in movies etc.) so please don’t use the ‘they do it too’ excuse to justify so many Nigerian artistes trying to pass azonto off as a Nigerian dance. It aint cool

    @Echa, Chris Brown doesn’t now that azonto is Ghanaian because he visited Nigeria first b4 he came to Ghana & the Nigerian artistes he met first portrayed azonto as a Nigerian dance. Simple. Nigerian artistes have portrayed azonto as their own. When you have a group like P-square doing virtually azonto moves & then calling it alingo, isn’t that claiming it? I’m not the one who called the alingo dance azonto, check what Nigerians said about it on their blogs after the song was released. I can post some of the comments from those blogs here for you if you want to make you realize that way before Samini complained, Nigerians were commenting that the alingo dance was virtually azoto. If azonto wasn’t giving Nigerian artistes bucks why are they all of a sudden singing azonto songs & using the dance moves like crazy? Are they doing it because they love Ghana so much? No, they’re getting a benefit from it. Even my Nigerian best friend here in the US tried to pass off Azonto to me & my Ugandan friend as a Nigerian dance. 2 weeks after I met her, she was asking me if I liked Nigerian azonto or Ghanaian azonto & which one is better & which one came first. I had to put her in her place & tell her that madam, there’s no Nigerian azonto. Azonto originated from Gh, period.

    I am laughing for the misconception and ignorance of some comments here, Wizkid Azonto was released in NOV 2011, and he credited Ghana dully for the dance(pls listen to the lyrics), Nigerians helped make the dance a hit international, i know fuse did somethin with azonto but am pretty sure dat was after Wizkid Azonto expired(check the date). If Ghanian made Azonto popular as claimed here how come some TOP Ghanian artist are still not known international? If known how come wizkid was the one TEACHing breezy the dance and not ‘fuse’. I can’t believe that WE are fighting for what Chris brown THINKS about azonto and not what he was Told. Pls guys drop this thing about stealing or imitation bcos there is nothing Original

    Afia Reply:

    @chi, the fight is not about C. Brown not knowing anything. Read my earlier comments where I said, I care less about him or Americans being ignorant about azonto because they’re ignorant about so many things in the first place. My beef is about Nigerian artistes acting like azonto is some Nigerian invention or even doing it, throwing in 2 additional steps & calling it by some other name. Please. The Ghanaian artistes who made Azonto famous (ie: Sarkodie & FUSE) are known internationally so what are you talking about? Wizkid got the chance to teach C. Brown azonto because C. Brown came to Nigeria before he came to Gh & met Wizkid b4 meeting Ghanaian artistes. I could also ask your question that if Nigerian artistes are the ones who made azonto so popular then how come it was Fuse who taught Wyclef azonto & not Wizkid or Psquare? See where this argument is going? Are you saying that since there’s nothing original it’s ok for people to steal others’ concepts & pass it off as their own? Please be honest & condemn wrong doing & stop justifying it just because those who did are are from your country.

    Afia Reply:

    @Echa, so we’re using this medium to set the record straight & tell Nigerian artistes to stop passing off azonto as a Nigerian dance or at least admit that they sampled azonto moves when they use them. Beyoncé did it, C Breezy even did it when they all used moves of another artiste- P-square is yet to admit that the ‘alingo’ they came out with is a flat out imitation of azonto. They’re rather justifying it. It’s also because we want to set the record straight that this article was posted here by the author & we’re commenting on it. So I find it highly offensive that Nigerian commentators here are stating that Ghanaians shouldn’t complain but we should rather be grateful to Nigerian artistes for making azonto popular. The nerve of that! To write such things on a Ghanaian blog! As if any of you would tolerate us saying something remotely close to that on YOUR blogs! Or is it because Ghanaians are peace-loving & calm that the whole world thinks they can take us for granted? To all those making such statements, azonto was popular before all these artistes started imitating it. BBC & CNN did coverage on this dance several months before these Nigerian artistes heard about it & started imitating it & that should be admitted. How in the world do you think the artistes found out about the dance anyway if it was just being danced in some obscure corner in Ghana?

    I don’t blame Nigerians. Ghanaian bloggers and DJs are busy promoting Nigerian music for free and request for money before they promote Ghanaian artistes. Aren’t u all seeing the results now. I stay in Nigeria and i can confidently tell you all that GH music gets almost zero airplay here but u’ll hear radio DJs giving marvelous rotation to Nigerian music in the remotest parts of GH. How then can GH artistes go international, mingle with other international artistes and probably teach them azonto??

    [Reply]

  • akosuaghana

    As a Ghanaian and an Azonto lover, below are my concern;

    1. Wizkid himself does not know how to do any good or real azonto, so what audacity and skills do he have to be able to teach someone azonto? A teacher must be good, before taking on students.

    2. From the Azonto Chris Brown did, I am sure no one will dispute the bad teaching, and how this bad teaching will go a long way to throw shade or misconception about Azonto (I mean what comprises Azonto).

    3. Also, if you get a visitor in your country, you teach the person your culture, your creative things and not that of another country, unless you have nothing great or worth teaching the foreign visitor. The fact that Wizkid made himself an Azonto teacher, when he could have taught Chris Alingo or some other dance means that, Azonto rules and some people wish or are dreaming it is their own. You lie bad, it is already documented everywhere and a simple Google search will tell you which country it belongs to.

    4. My last point is; I do not think Wizkid will tell Chris Brown that, I am “going to show you a new dance in town and it is from Ghana”. It is either he will say, it is a Nigerian dance or he will totally fail to mention where it comes from. In the case of the latter, Chris Brown will reasonably believe that, since he is being taught the dance by Wizkid and by virtue of point 3 coming to play, the dance is Nigerian.

Wizkid only performed that track wen Chris came to Nigeria on his request(Chris) just the same way they did in Ghana. 2 Chris brown album was long ready before he came to Nigeria. And so do the maths, how come he did azonto beat just 2weeks after leaving Ghana with video and everything ready.that track was made before his trip to African

    [Reply]

    Afia Reply:

    @Emma, googled it, didn’t see what you’re talking about? Is your argument that Wizzy isn’t the 1 who taught C. Brown to dance azonto? Or that he didn’t learn in Nigeria? Because C.Brown himself emphatically said he learnt the dance IN NIGERIA & from WIZKID. His own words not mine. Bottomline is that he was taught the dance by some Nigerian who tried to pass azonto off as ‘a Nigerian thingy’ which is definitely not cool. Chris Brown was in Nigeria last year & he says he learnt azonto there so he had a long time to do the video. The math adds up.

    [Reply]

  • http://Nill.com Emma

    @Afia, My point is that Chris brown called out wizkid midway into his performance in Nigerian and requested he do the azonto dance, for him same stage. So do u think they just met in Nigerian and then wizzy manufactured his way same stage with Chris(pls watch the Nigerian video) Both met in the states were wizzy(i rember wizkid tweetted ‘chilling with my man Chris’ with a pic sometime last year when he was touring US) was doing the azonto thing so Chris liked it, when he came to Nigerian he requested that wizzy do it for him. And pls Wizkid never fronted azonto as Nigerian dance except you didn’t listen to his lyrics(i learnt the track was even produced by a Ghanian) Pls lets drop this, the fun is over.

    [Reply]

    Afia Reply:

    @Emma, I’m taking C. Brown’s words. He said he was taught the dance by Wiz & it’s a Nigerian thing. Meaning the one who taught him wasn’t honest enough to let him know that the dance wasn’t his invention. Isn’t it interesting that for all his faults, when C.Brown was showing the dance to Americans (on BET) he was honest enough to acknowledge that the dance wasn’t his idea but Wiz (or whichever Nigerian taught C.Brown the dance, wasn’t honest enough to do this?). & since the video of C.Brown’s BET statement came out, Wiz hasn’t had the courage to tweet, or issue a statement to correct the erroneous impression that was created. Neither has P-Square been bold enough to come out to say that their alingo dance is a spin off azonto, they still insist that it’s an original dance they invented :)

    Dr. Miyagi Reply:

    @27cдгibre(Ф_ф), see what they write on their website

    While granting an interview yesterday, Chris Brown revealed he had infused the Ghanaian dance move into his latest video and attributed its origination to Nigeria. He also recalled meeting Nigerian pop singer Wizkid who taught him the dance move.

    Understandably, Ghanians are unhappy about CB’s wrong assumption on the origin of Azonto, with one blog ‘Ghana Celebrities’ posting in an article ‘WTF: Chris Brown Talks About AZONTO On BET, But He Says The Dance Is A Nigerian Thing…‘.
    See how the site reported it “It seems Chris Brown coming to Ghana and introducing Nigerian artiste-Wizkid on stage to do Azonto was not a mere mistake. In fact, Chris Brown thinks Azonto is a Nigerian thing…
    Probably he is taking the piss out of Ghanaians by failing to credit Ghana with the dance which has gained international recognition…
    Talking about his new album ‘X’ and music video ‘Fine China’ on BET 106 & Park yesterday, Chris Brown mentioned that he has incorporated a dance from Africa called Azonto into his dance moves in the video. He even went ahead to request for a tune to be played, so he can demonstrateAzonto to the millions of viewers.
    Unfortunately, he linked Nigerians Wizkid to the dance, saying he learnt it from him-that is not so bad. But he categorically added that, Azonto is a Nigerian thing…REALLY?
    This is like me going on CNN to say EBA is a Ghanaian food…
    Is Chris Brown taking the piss out of Ghana or is it that he does not know the truth about Azonto?

    ***At least Nigerians made d dance more popular than Ghanians!***

    ,@Afia, Oh Thank u very much for accepting the apology, now Nigerians can sleep without dreaming of Azonto. NEPA lol(thats outdated, it nolonger exist in Nigeria for the past 7 years ,it has been scraped) The Nigeria president is working very hard to restore power for Ghana, the petroleum minister is on her toes to make sure the WEST AFRICA GAS PIPELINE is back and running,so that Gas will follow once again from Nigerian to Ghana to power your powerplant. I know u love Nigeria and would wish we enjoy light too but don’t bother, we are always committed to our friend and neighbours even when we have to suffer for them to smile,so that you guy can ‘FORGIVE US for stealing azonto’. least i forget Chris brown has been detailed with the True picture of Azonto, and he would make public apology too. Goodnite.

    @Emma, oh, I had no idea NEPA has been scraped, what’s the name of the new agency? Are they doing a better job than NEPA? My Nigerian friend used to complain a lot about the electricity issues in the early 2000s but she’s stopped doing that now so I assumed the situation is better now. Yes, tell your petroleum minister to hurry up & do quick quick to supply us with gas, the lights problem must be solved before I return to Ghana in August! lol. As for C.Brown, the least said about him the better, he better not step foot in GH again otherwise, we’ll do to him what he did to Rihanna! lol. Goodnyt

    @lily & the likes, Nig has the second strongest economy in Africa marginally behind SA(try google,it works), we fought for SA during thd apatheid regime, we fought for the restoration of peace in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Sudan, etc. Of the 2000troops sent to restore peace in Mali, over 1200 are 9ja soldiers. Our company(globacom) is sponsoring the ghanaian premier league. Another company of ours, Dangote group, is a major employer of labour in Gh. Our banks, Zenith, UBA, GTB, etc are running ur economies, plus Gh is only gaining entertainment relevance because of ur geographic proximity to 9ja, so ur stars can easily rush to Lagos to promote their arts. I remember VIP, b4 their big break said they had to relocate to Lagos, Africa’s entertainment capital, to gain the acceptance they had then. C’mon havn’t we done enough for our lil sister country? Y’all complaing bout P squares Alingo dance, during the Guiness “top of the world” concert in Gh, P square was paid $200k to do the alingo dance, while Sarkodie & R2Bs were offered $5k to do d azonto. Major Ghanaian shows in Gh are headlined by 9ja artist,& ofcos ur artists cant compare with ours in any other African country. Nobody knws Sarkodie in Zambia, but recently the Zambian president played host to P square, D’banj did d AFCON theme song, 2face is the king of African pop,& wizkid is her jewel(y’all ladies can testify). The greatest con artists of all time have got “over the roof” IQs, so we’re smart too. Azonto is a Ghanaian dance, but we flavoured it!

    @Kay Jay, the fact that Nigeria is the most fabulous nation on earth, as you’re claiming, doesn’t mean that your artistes can steal Ghanaian concepts & pass it off as their own. That aint cool so just admit it. You think if Beyoncé started dancing azonto & pretended it was her invention Ghanaians wouldn’t complain because she’s a grammy winner & platinum selling artiste & the U.S. has one of the best economies in the world? lol, that’s a laughable concept. Even in the real world, people are not allowed to steal from others because they’re rich & the people are poor. But that haven’t been said, don’t also begin to feel that because Nigeria has the 2nd largest economy or all the things you said, Ghana is just ‘lying there’ & not achieving anything. Last year, we had the 2nd highest growing economy in the WORLD only exceded by Qatar. Our poverty levels have been declining (& currently your country’s poverty level is twice our own). Several prominent persons (The UN sec. gen, Bill Gates, Prez. Obama) have praised us over the past 5 years of being a beacon & example for Africa & for dramatically reducing our maternal mortality levels, malaria infection rates, polio infection rates etc. We have had sustained & verifiable democracy for 2 decades & still counting. So don’t be misled lol. And please as to that l’il country thing- go & read your history books & find out how a ‘l’il country’ called Britain was able to colonize half or the world for centuries. Then come back & tell me if you still think the meer size of a country equates power! Oh & being a con artist is nothing to take pride in so please don’t go there :) xoxo

    @Afia, don’t you think we also need CREDIT too; imagine for donkey years Ghana electricity had been powered by Nigeria Gas, Even when about 7 powerplant in Nigerian are lying without gas. Isn’t that brotherly enough. I know you would say you guys pay for it, But don’t you think some commodities are xclusive .Now since angry Nigerians vandalized the gas pipelines out off the many bragging of Ghanians , there is no more constant Electricity in Ghana. I guess you guy would now have to build gas pipeline from Saudi Arabia or from Mexico,venezuela or Algeria or better still start shipping gas from the US. Pls don’t get it twisted my point is both country have more good things going for them rather than one dance. Lets build on peace rather than rivalary. PEACE

    @Emma, no one is saying your country doesn’t deserve to be credited. Of course Nigeria deserves credit for all the good work & nothing can take away from it. But the fact that Nigeria deserves credit doesn’t mean Ghana doesn’t deserve credit too or that Nigerian artistes are free to pass off Ghanaian concepts as their own. And of course I get your point. We have more good things than dance but this is an entertainment website so guess what will mostly be discussed & debated here? I know I don’t have to answer that. :)

    @Emma, PLEASE, PLEASE @Emma, 9ja boi, Kay Jay and others, lets just leave this people alone as you can’t keep arguing with the deaf. Constantly exchanging insults with each other leads nowhere and equally diminishes us: As you know, it is not in our character. We have always sacrificed for our brother and sister nations in Africa but end up being rewarded with hate. I laugh when Ghanaians taunt us with 419 and opt for the amnesia of forgetting they are the world champions of Sakawa which is credited to be 1000 times worse (Google it). I remember vividly that in the 1970s- early 80s, a portion of our national budgets then were dedicated to fighting the Apartheid South African regime. If not for the huge distance, we would even have sent troops to fight alongside our brothers in SA but the logistics was unbreachable. Every school child then whether in primary, secondary or University contributed stipends towards the cause which was transmitted to the African National Congress (ANC). ANC was headquartered in Nigeria at a point in time and the Organization of African Unity (now AU) declared Nigeria a “FRONTLINE State” in recognition and appreciation of our efforts to overthrow the Apartheid Regime in South Africa. Of course our role in keeping peace in West Africa and rest of the world is well documented. We are talking about thousands of lives and blood of our compatriots shed and sacrificed in far-off lands and billions of dollars spent in those causes which could have been deployed to good effect in our country. And yet what do we ever get for this? Vicious hatred which is hard to explain. It is so bad that when terrorists strike and kill innocent men, women and children in Nigeria, the rest of the world condemn and sympathize but what do you get from Ghanaians: they celebrate it and wish for more of the same, hoping that will bring our great nation down to its knees. So really, we know who we are even with all our failings and issues; What Nigeria is and stands for is ordained by God and we don’t need to even make an issue of it. Speaking for myself, I so much believe in Africa and I am a very proud African which is why I visit blogs in most English speaking African countries to find out what is going on in those countries including Ghana. Sad to say that it is almost only in Ghanaian blogs that I see this type of behavior. So guys (Nigerians on this blog), you know what the answer is for fools: silence. You make matters worse by responding and exchanging insults. Please ignore these insults, read the stories and move on. The original Psquare-Azonto story was written about three weeks ago and several more has been written since then and yet we wont allow it to go away. Lets not keep feeding it by responding. It will get us nowhere. Insults against Nigerian wont remove a hair from your head or remove meat from your mouth so fellow Nigerians, let it go.

    I agree with u big chief, but permit me to make one last point to Afia, who seems like the most sensitive Ghanian here. Now Afia, I never said 9ja’s the most fabulous country in the world, but if u guys can misquote Chris Brown, why not me? But anyway,we’re not far from being the most fabulous country anyway. U claim most of my points were “according to me,” pls tell the house, are we or are we not sponsoring your soccer league & national team? Are our banks not among(if not) the biggest banks there? C’mon! By the way, trust me if Chris Brown just did azonto without crediting anybody, your countrymen wouldn’t be here creating so much fuss. I know what azonto means to y’all,& I apologize the world just didn’t think a dance that cool could come from Ghana, cos the dance had 9ja written all over it. And again when i 1st saw Ghanaians doing azonto, it really looked demented,not until Nigerians started adding their flavour to it did people start appreciating its pulchritude. We’ve had several dance steps outta 9ja, go checkout the video of OMG by Usher closely, u’d see him doing alanta, we didn’t bring the roof down. As regards the Ghana ranking behind Qatar in the fastest growing economies in 2012, sorry dear google couldn’t find the info. It might be sad to accept, but u guys need us. Off the top of my head, i can’t think of any major Ghanaian company that’s doing us any favours or giving us any jaw-dropping services,its always been vice versa. U think ur poverty index is better than ours, but trust me u do so at ur own peril. Forbes released the richest 40persons in Africa,& its no news we top that list as well as flood it. Officially Dangote is the richest African, but unofficially there are other Nigerians who still regard Dangote a poor man when placed side-by-side with’em. On a final note though, i love Ghana, whether the feeling’s mutual or not. I’ve got a holiday planned out in Accra & I intend to have a good time. When i land, 1st tin I’d do is ask for Afia….lol. *kisses* if u’re a gal, *hi 5* if u’re a guy. Am outta here 4 good. ff on twitter though @TheGuyCalledKay

    @Kay Jay, my point is that you don’t pick 3 facts of your country, canvass them & say that your country is the best place in the world! That’s just wrong. Every country has their positive points with which they can gloat including Ghana! I forgot that we’re in 2013 (I’m becoming an old lady lol) & that’s why I said the economic growth rate stats were for last year. They were for 2011. Ghana has the 2nd fastest growing economy in the world in 2011, coming 2nd only behind Qatar. Other reports even put it as the fastest growing economy in the world!!!This fact was reported by many reputable business sites & some blogs including your own nairland blog. let me put up the websites-http://www.economywatch.com/economy-business-and-finance-news/12-fastest-growing-economies-of-2011-8-12.html?page=full http://blogs.lse.ac.uk/africaatlse/2012/02/24/explaining-the-ghanaian-economic-miracle-or-mirage/

    http://www.nairaland.com/733521/ghana-currently-worlds-fastest-growing
    On the issue of poverty- a country doesn’t progress by having 5 of its country men amassing all the wealth of the country while others languish in abject poverty. lol. Mobutu sese seko was at one point one of the richest men in Africa but did that make his country a rich one? So, it should rather be a worrying fact if some Nigerians are being rated as being rich by forbes & yet the majority of your people are languishing in poverty. Currently, the poverty rate for Nigeria stands at a whopping 54.7% (ie: more than half of your country men) taken from world bank website http://data.worldbank.org/country/nigeria, while Ghana’s stands at 28.5, which is just about a quarter of the population and about half of your figure- taken from world bank http://data.worldbank.org/country/ghana . In the light of all these things, if your country is sponsoring Ghanaian football teams, creating jobs for Ghanaians, moving heaven & earth & more than half of your folks are finding it difficult to put hand to mouth, should you be gloating or jubilating? I think not. I love naija too & am waiting for you to invite me over for a visit. By the way I’m a lady :) so I wholeheartedly accept the kisses. PS: trust me, if C.Brown had dared to pretend that he invented azonto or danced azonto & called it ‘skywalk’ dance, we’d have crucified him :)

    Let me address one by one.
    1)Ghana was the fastest growing economy in africa in 2011 because of its newly discovered oil,which is what happens when any country hits oil.
    It was a temporary phase.
    It is not the fasting growing in Africa anymore,Nigeria is.
    Nigeria alone accounts for 13% of foreign investment in africa,followed by southafrica.
    2)The number of billionaires is a pointer to the strength of an economy,which is why the US and china have the highest number of billionaires in the world.
    3)The world bank statistics have been consistently proven to be false,and i wonder why an african would believe a world bank statistics.
    Phone penetration in Nigeria is over 100million.
    Are you telling me people living hand to mouth can afford airtimes?
    Very funny.
    Maybe you should ask jackie appiah on the standard of living in Nigeria.
    In 2015 only 22% of Nigerians will be poor(you can check online).
    besides,we have the highest number of middle class in africa.
    4)yes our companies are creating jobs in ghana because they are strong enough and they want to maximize profits.
    They also help in growing Nigeria’s economy,as they send most of the profits back home.
    The economic strength of a country also depends on how many of its brands can compete internationally.
    Ghana is still an economic baby so you won’t understand
    5)you don’t like Nigeria,let not pretend.
    It’s hard to find a ghanian not envious of Nigeria.

    @Solomon, lol, another argument full of contradictions! My dear, if you won’t use world bank statistics that’s ok but my point about the poverty levels of Nigeria has not been stated by World Bank alone. Last year, the BBC gave a report on it based on what your own country’s National Bureau of Statistics told it! You can find the report here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-17015873 I was even generous with my figures because your National bureau of statistics says that 61 percent of your folks are languishing in poverty. Your own newspaper reported that the poverty level has moved to 69 percent nationwide & is even 77 percent in some states http://tribune.com.ng/index.php/front-page-news/35947-nigerias-poverty-level-rises-hits-715-sokoto-niger-top-list-of-poorest-states.That is no laughing matter. If phones have penetrated your country, there are 2 billionaires in your country & yet majority of your people can’t eat- you think that’s something to rejoice about? Please don’t compare yourself to the US or China & say they have billionaires & you do too so you’re ok. US & China has only about 10 percent of their populace living in poverty (google it- US has been hovering between 12-15 percent these past years, China is at 13 percent). As for the claim that only 22 percent of your country will be poor by 2015, it’s a claim that has been canvassed by your National Bureau of Statistics in order to keep you happy. It has not been certified by any external/ independent body. http://www.informationng.com/2013/04/good-news-by-2015-only-27-2-of-nigeriansll-be-poor-nbs.html Look, I hope it happens (who doesn’t want Africa to prosper?) but I’ll believe it when I see it.

    Nigerians don’t believe their claims,as it paints a different picture to what is on ground.
    I gave you a practical analogy to debunk the world bank claims but you chose to ignore it.
    2)china is a wealthy country,but they have a lot of poor people.
    The gap between the poor and rich is much much wider than what obtains in Nigeria.
    This is why they are still called a developing country.
    Finally,
    Nigeria is the second largest economy in Africa.
    We will overtake southafrica in the next 5-10yrs,while lagos will replace jourhanesburg as the africa’s most important economic city.
    It can only get better.

Please go to the NBS’ website & search for the latest stats, they’ll shock you because it’s actually worse. Trust me, i don’t wish Nigeria evil, I hope all of Africa will progress but I find it sad that you’ll close your eyes to the truth & rejoice that some people in your country are rich when majority are battling poverty. And it’s sadder that you think it’s the same as China’s situation. It’s not. China’s poverty rate which is around 12 percent is no where close to your country’s sixty one percent.

    Though i didn’t bother to click the link,but i am definitely sure they used foreign sources without conducting an independent survey.
    The world bank just released a new report that the poverty level in Nigeria has reduced to 46%(you can check it online) though i believe it is much lower.
    We have the largest informal economy in africa,we are not a welfare state like southafrica,therefore the poverty level can never be that bad.
    Despite boko-haram,Nigeria still attracts the most foreign investments in africa.
    Do you think investors will invest in a country where 75% of the country are poor?
    How will they make profits?
    Who will buy the goods?
    Yet investors are flooding Nigeria.
    Yes there is poverty in Nigeria,but it is grossly exaggerated.

    You guys got to move away from such unhelping debate and look at other substantive things…There is poverty in Nigeria and in turns of raw figures, it is astronomically high…In terms of percent too, it is high. And this is simply because Nigeria has a sandy population.

    There is poverty in Ghana too, but you wont get high raw figures and percentage simply because Ghana has a tiny population and not because the past and present Govts are better than Nigerian Govts or people.

    The fact is, all these two countries and other African countries are equally being looted by Govts and the people we entrust to run affairs…The more you have, the more people can steal from you and that is why Nigeria will lead in that index-how much has been looted from a country.

    If you magnify Ghana’s population by doing a simple arithmetic to match it to Nigerian’s population, you will see that poverty in these two countries in terms of raw figures are the same or close to the same…

    I do not think the substantive issue here and at anytime should be which country is poor cos in terms of natural resource, these two countries are blessed…The bigger the land, the more you are likely to have buried in there too, same as the bigger the population, the more human resource you’ve got.

    However, the few greedy politicians we have are making a mess out of our countries and all these attacks and missiles should be sent the way of those corrupted individuals in charge rather…

    So in summary; you all have to realize these;

    1. Nigeria is 5 times enormous than Ghana in terms of population and landmark.
    2. Therefore, common ratio and proportion should let you know that, in terms of troubles too, Nigeria will have 5 times than Ghana.
    3. This does not mean, Nigeria is worse or Ghana is better. If you reduce the Nigerian population to the size of Ghana, you will find that these countries are swimming in close margins, struggling equally or close to equal in the hands of some FEW.

    @Posted By: Chris-Vincent Agyapong Febiri, I agree with most of what you’ve said. The only part I disagree with is what you said about raw figures & percentages. Sure, the raw number of poor people will be higher in a more populous nation but once you reduce that figure to a percentage, it balances out since you’d be also be dividing by a high number (ie: you’ll be dividing the number of poor people by the total population of the country which is also high). If countries with smaller populations generally have smaller percentages of people living in poverty than more populous ones, then Ghana should have a higher percentage poverty rate than Gambia, Djibouti, Togo, Benin even mineral rich Angola but we don’t. Now while Ghana’s raw figures for people living in poverty is far greater than those Djibouti or Gambia, once we reduce it to a percentage, it factors in the larger population of Ghana & makes for fair comparison. Doesn’t mean that Ghana is better than Nigerian or Nigeria is better than Ghana since Nigeria also performs better in other areas like GDP. However, it is a fact that the poverty rates of Nigeria are higher than those in Ghana.
