One-time highlife and hiplife artiste Papa Shee born Nana Yaw Akosah has disclosed that Ghanaians love profane songs than sensible songs.
According to the ‘Atadwe’ hitmaker, Ghanaians will never embrace good or sensible songs but will gladly accept profane songs.
He made this revelation in an interview on Accra based radio station Hitz Fm.
According to Papa Shee who is also known as ‘The Boy Wonder ‘, at the beginning of his music career he was producing good/sensible songs but Ghanaians never noticed his talent till he came up with a profane song.
He indicated that Profane songs really sell in Ghana and when he started producing such songs he was embraced and made lots of impact on the music scene in Ghana and across borders.
“I produced a lot of good songs but Ghanaians did not embrace them that much. So I decided to produce profane songs” He told Andy Dosty on Hitz FM’s Day Break Hitz show.
Papa Shee was known for his controversial lyrics in his works that sometimes attracted criticisms from his Ghanaian music fans.
The one-time highlife legend is now an evangelist and made an acclamation that he was not going to compose any song that goes contrary to the Word of God.
Papa Shee has graced many Ghanaian entertainment events in Ghana and the USA.
He was the first Ghanaian musician to release a DVD in the music scene.
He has received several awards including the African Hollywood Awards for Best African Hip Hop Artiste, as well as the first place Award from African Idol (USA).
