Internationally acclaimed Nigerian – American recording artist, Jidenna Theodore Mobisson has labelled celebrated hiplife-hip hop artiste, Guru as the best hip hop artiste in Ghana.
Jidenna who is noted for two hit singles, “Classic Man” and “Yoga”, was reacting to a question pertaining to who his favorite hip hop artiste from Africa is.
According to Jidenna who was being interviewed on the “urban xpress” hip hop show, Guru, Wizkid, Don Jazzy and Akon are the best hip hop artistes from Africa:
“Actually, I must say from Ghana Guru is straight tight. He is the best hip hop artiste from Ghana…Wizkid from Nigeria is also great, Don Jazzy is the best sound engineer and big shout out to Akon…actually Akon from Senegal paved the way for all of us. I think these are the best hip hop artistes from Africa” .Jidenna noted.
Guru has been nominated in two categories at this year’s Vodafone Ghana music Awards slated for 7th May,2016 ,namely Best Hiplife song of the year with “pooley swag” and best Hiplife/ hip hop Artiste of the Year.
He is currently out with a song titled “Atanfo Nye Nyame”, meaning enemies are not God which is really enjoying massive airplay.
But the question is, should Jidenna’s assertion for rating Guru as the hip hop artiste in Ghana ahead of Sarkodie, Edem, EL etc. conclude the fact that Guru should win his categories?
