Award-winning Ghanaian musician King Ayisoba says he needs no hype to remain relevant in the music industry, contrary to claims by his critics.
The singer twelve years after releasing his popular song “I want to see you my father” which earned him three awards at the Ghana Music Awards ceremony – Most Popular Song of the Year, Discovery of the Year and Traditional Song of the Year has finally corrected a lyrical misrepresentation of the song.
According to King Ayisoba, the lyrics, ‘I want to see you my father’ are wrong. He said it is rather ‘I want to sue you, my father’!
Ayisoba in a recent radio interview said the song was about a bad father who was being threatened with a suit by his children for failing to take care of them.
But his critics say he has resorted to this explanation of his song in a bid to draw attention to himself as his popularity has gone to an all-time low.
King Ayisoba in an interview with Host Moses Aluebasi on Ejura-based Naagyei FM’s Entertainment Review show, dismissed the assertions by his critics saying he is now soaring higher more than ever.
“It is not true that I’m correcting the lyrics of my song now to give me some hype because I’m fading out of the system. I can’t fade out, my popularity is even going higher because I’m now an international musician doing music in Europe. Even my popular song I want to sue you my father was released as was not as big a musician as I am today. I play a lot of big shows abroad in so many places, after all these what sort of promotion do I need again,” he asked?
