“I Feel pains in me because i didn’t make a penny from the same craft people are living on currently…” these were the sad words from Ajinqwa, a songwriter and upcoming musician in an exclusive interview with GhanaCelebrities TV.
An upcoming musician by name Samuel Kenya Appiah aka Ajinqwa has cried out on how Lord Kenya sidelined him after making fortunes from songs he wrote.
Ajinqwa disclosed in an exclusive interview that he he started writing for Lord Kenya as far back as 2003 when the rapper was picking up in his career.
He disclosed that most of the hit songs Lord Kenya is credited for is his writing but the rapper turned evangelist never gave him credit for that.
He said, “I started writing for Lord Kenya in 2003. In those days I didn’t really bother myself with getting known, all I knew was just writing songs for him to record.”
When asked his motive for writing for Lord Kenya, Ajinqwa said he was writing out of love for a brother and also to join his team and ride on his fame but Lord Kenya never for once introduced him to anyone.
He stressed that he followed Lord Kenya to many shows across the country but his brother didn’t recognize him nor show him to the public as his writer.
Ajinqwa was tasked to list the projects he wrote for Kenya and he said he can remember songs like Asa Bone on the Born Again album, Christ Life among other projects.
The young man also said he wrote about 90% of Lord Kenya’s raps for him but they were not arranged into a full song and he can determine the raps he wrote when any song from the icon plays.
Ajinqwa told the host he has evidence of chats between himself and Lord Kenya to prove that he is not making up stories to destroy the reputation of the rapper.
“I know some Ghanaians will say I am doing this for fame but I have chats between me and Lord Kenya that shows I am not lying or saying things to tarnish his image. He cannot deny that I wrote his songs for him and I will be surprised if he comes out to deny,” He said in twi.
He added in the interview that he is currently looking to have his share of the cake from Lord Kenya and that the rapper must at least give him a huge sum of money or introduce him to industry players that can help build his career.
