The Godfather of HipLife Reggie Rockstone,has opined that Asakaa Music by the Asakaa Boys from Kumerica is the ORIGINAL when it comes to Hip Hop.
In an interview with Orange Fm’s Ike Frimpong, Reggie Rockstone clapped back at haters who claim pioneers of Ghanaian drill music (Asakaa boys) are culture vultures. He said ‘it is a grand insult to tell an African that they are a culture vulture…for you to understand the dynamics and the blueprint of hip hop, you should know that hip hop comes from Africa, so these kids are actually the original.’
Reggie Rockstone reaffirmed his Kumerican citizenship and proffered some advice, ‘I am a Kumasiano, I will always be a kumasiano..Old people need to listen to young people, if you do this your wisdom will multiply.
Reggie ended by expressing his admiration for the young group’s desire to do something for themselves.
The Asakaa boys blew up in Ghana and Globally few months ago when they started the Kumerican movement.
