Ghanaian hip hop artiste, Strongman Burner says coming out with a diss song against his colleague rapper, Medikal is a means of defending himself.
“I did not get myself in any beef. I was called to the table, so I was supposed to just defend myself. There were a whole lot of lines which was directed to me, if you listen to the song [“To Whom It May Concern”]. You could see that there were a whole lot of lines directed to me,” he noted.
The ‘Omo Ada’ rapper dominated headlines after he claimed to have saved Ghana rap four years ago when the genre was struggling.
Medikal’s statement seems not to have gone down well with Ghanaians as well as colleague rappers.
Strongman Burner has been expressed disappointment at Medikal’s assertions through diss songs.
In an interview on Accra-based Hitz FM on Monday, Strongman Burner said he is not a friend to Medikal.
According to him, he has no encounter with his colleague. “I haven’t had an encounter with Medikal. We have not had encounter before, even an interactions, we are not friends,” he said.
The ‘Baby Girl’ hit maker further stated that the song against him, did not reflect on his personality, “What he was saying about me, there were whole lot of them which were not even true. I don’t really need to get emotional about this. When it comes to music we use the brains more than the heart.”
“This time around I don’t get any more emotional because I have heard whole lot with him with things which I was supposed to get emotional and I have not gotten emotional up to this point. I don’t know why just an original song should make me feel emotional,” he said.
