Patapaa has made the ludicrous claim that Ghanaian music would be like Africa without Madagascar if he didn’t exist.
He can only be likened to Michael Jackson, per the Swedru-born musician, because he is a performer who makes folks ignore their misfortunes when he performs.
Patapaa revealed this when Amansan Krakye of Kastle FM in Cape Coast asked him why he made some statements in a Facebook post.
In his words: “Yes I’m the one who posted on Facebook that Ghana music without Patapaa is like Africa without Madagascar,” he responded.
“You know it and let’s go back to Ghana meets Niger some years ago and I gave it to them because I do focus a lot on what I’m doing,”
“God created me as an entertainer and I’m like the Micheal Jackson of Ghana and I do make people forget their sorrows when I perform on stage,” he added.
In other news, Nigerian record producer and Mavin Records boss, Don Jazzy has revealed the role his fomer label mate, Dbanj played in his music career.
In a recent interview with Olajide Adesope dubbed: “Don Jazzy on Afrobeats Podcast 50th Exclusive Edition”, the Don Jazzy gave credit to Dbanj, the Kokomaster, for helping him out with his drive for success.
He said: “Dbanj is the creator/catalyst. If you leave me, every situation I’m in, it’s like I’m contented, I’m okay there.
“But Dbanj saw me and everything that people see in me now. He just sparked it in me.
“Left to me, I would have just been where I was and not do much about it. So, I would say he was that catalyst that said ‘Jazzy do this and that’.
“He ensured I achieved the things I did. He sold the idea of us coming back to Nigeria and that we did.”
