You can’t do GH greatest rappers list without EL, Edem, Flowking – Okyeame Kwame


Ghanaian rapper Okyeame Kwame has raised doubts about the methodology used in compiling Graphic Showbiz’s recent list of the greatest rappers in Ghana.

In an interview with Zionfelix, the ‘Best Rapper Alive,’ who was ranked third on the list, expressed disbelief that EL, Edem, and Flowking Stone were omitted. He questioned the criteria Graphic Showbiz employed, whether it considered rhythmic prowess, cultural relevance, lyrical content, popularity, or overall influence in the rap scene.

“What criteria did Graphic Showbiz use for that list? RAP is Rhythmic African Poetry; so did they look out for the rhythm, the ‘Africanness’ or the poetry? Did they use popularity or influence? Or it is based on being able to really rap? Because when I saw the list I didn’t understand why EL, Flowking Stone and Edem Goget’em were not part. What kind of list is this? We talk about best rappers of all time in Ghana, you can’t take these three people out,” he remarked.

Graphic Showbiz’s ranking placed Sarkodie at the top, followed by Obrafour, Okyeame Kwame, Okomfour Kwadee, Lord Kenya, Manifest, Tinny, Reggie Rockstone, Strongman, Eno Barony, Guru, Kojo Cue, Cabum, and Amerado.

The list has sparked vigorous debates within media circles, rekindling discussions three decades after the emergence of hiplife, a genre pioneered by Reggie Rockstone that fuses hip-hop with Ghanaian musical styles, prominently featuring rap.

Meanwhile, Okyeame Kwame has recently released the music video for his latest track ‘No Competition,’ featuring Kuami Eugene.
