Award winning Reggae- Dancehall artiste, Iwan in an interview with Dj Frank on Gentlemenradio’s Daily Dose has said that he has no ongoing beef with any artiste.
Answering a fan’s questions as to whether there is an ongoing beef between himself and Samini or Shatta Wale, he answered
“Well I will say that was some years back when we had some mix-ups here and there and we even did some beef songs but as it stands now, I don’t have problem with anybody, I don’t have a problem with any artistes”
On assessment, the artiste stressed that, all the music genres in Ghana are doing very well in projecting the nation on the world’s map; however, the industry is sixty-five percent Reggae- Dancehall dominated.
“Ghana music is big, it accommodates most music genres. Hip-pop can do well, hip-life can do well, Gospel can do well, Reggae music can do well, Dancehall music can do well but now it’s Dancehall and Reggae which are on top. So the Ghana music thing now, if I should say is sixty-five Reggae – Dancehall dominated” he reiterated
The ‘True Love’ singer also disclosed he is one of the pacesetters of the Dancehall music in Ghana.
“… Some of us have been so lucky and blessed to set the pace for some of the artistes now to follow” he told Dj Frank.
On the future, the ‘God is great’ hitmaker said, “Dancehall is still on the early stage and we still need to push it, support it, finance it, and invest in it for what it must become. So really and truly, there is future looking at the young talented artiste coming up these days and looking at the works they are putting out, you must say there is future”
