Akosua Kwakye, an afro dancehall artist popularly known as AK Songstress, has taken a swipe at dancehall artists in Ghana.
She says the music done by people in that genre in Ghana does not qualify for proper dancehall.
AK Songstress is known for dancehall, but with her latest single ‘Jonathan’, the artiste appears to have switched to afrobeats.
Explaining why she switched genres to afrobeats, she said, “When I do something, I do it very well. That’s the kind of person I am. My dancehall music/ style, I can say, is above the Ghanaian industry as far as dancehall is concerned. And the kind of dancehall that those who took the lead showed the masses as dancehall is not what dancehall is about. I stuck to doing what dancehall should really be, which my people didn’t understand.” she said in a recent interview on the Delay Show.
Reviewing her new identity as “an Afrodancehall artiste/ Afrobeats artiste, the singer insisted she was versatile.
AK was signed to Paradise Entertainment in 2015, and she is currently promoting her latest single, ‘Proposal’.
