Musician-A Plus, real name Kwame Asare Obeng, popular for his controversial songs and sometimes the assassination of politicians for their gross incompetence has thrown a punch to music lovers who may have unsettling issues with his style of music.
Generally, A-Plus drops a song when he feels it’s relevant, unlike many African musicians whose first motive is to make some money—-no matter what and are therefore compelled to drop countless trash singles.
Not long ago, the Musician who can also best be described as a ‘social media journalist’ or a ‘political commentator’ released a single titled- Yesterday’s Today’s Tomorrow—using over 5 minutes to beautifully tell the chaotic story of mother earth.
Following the release of the song which GhanaCelebrities.Com’s Editor, Chris-Vincent Agyapong Febiri described as “a superb art and a touch of reality,” some Ghanaians on social media have descended on A Plus’s brilliant style and his release policy built around RELEVANCE.
Responding to those throwing stones at him for his musical style and those who say he’s out of the Ghanaian musical race, A Plus told GhanaCelebrities.Com that; “I understand if some people can’t find the meat in the soup. I do not make music for people whose thinking is below average. You certainly need to be familiar with critical thinking to appreciate my sort of art.”
And he’s damn right—music has become so irrelevant in the bigger scheme of things in Ghana. The hit songs are literally empty in value, rich in nonsense and mostly developed around stolen beats. The real impact of most of the songs on the Ghanaian playlist remains at ground ZERO.
