Rapper Edem claimed that he directly notified President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Akufo Addo, that there is a line in his Toto song that refers to him when they met recently.
In a new interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM, the rapper, who is unquestionably one of Ghana’s best MCs, stated the country’s first gentleman laughed off his disclosure.
Eden reflected on the occasion, saying,
“President Akufo-Addo laughed when I told him that his name was in my “Toto” song. Everything is influenced by politicians. They have no other option. You may like me even if you don’t like me.
Almost every artist speaks about the industry with the President when they meet him. I decided to have a conversation on a different subject. We had a good conversation.”
The rapper told Andy Dosty on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz that Ghanaians do not like rap music, which explains the genre’s lack of success in the nation.
According to Edem, the majority of his songs that are popular in the country have relatively little rap and instead emphasize singing.
“I was never paid for my rap tracks.” I did not support rap because of rap music. My most popular song is ‘Nyornuviade’… His songs “Over Again” and “Koene” are the most profitable, according to him.
