Member of defunct pop fusion duo 5five, Papi has asserted that Nigerians are nowhere close to Ghanaians when it comes to music.
According to him, the lyrical content of Nigerian music cannot even match up to that of Ghanaian music.
He made this statement in an interview on Happy 98.9 FM’s ‘Ayekoo After Drive’ with DJ Advicer. “I think the Nigerians are doing a beautiful job but they can’t match up to us,” he said.
He believes that Nigerian music is dominating the Ghanaian market because they invest more heavily in their music than Ghanaians and receive more support from their people.
Now a solo act with the stage name Papi_5five, the musician indicated that the only problem Ghanaian musicians faced was unconstructive criticism. “In Ghana, you can do music and you can only hear people saying the song has this problem and that.”
He advised Ghanaians to love anyone who does music in Ghana.
The 5five group was a pop fusion duo with an inclination for experimental genres that have crossover appeal. It was made up of Luther Azamati (Papi) and Jeffery Opoku Agyekum (Killy).
