Ghanaian music producer, Wei Ye Oteng has hit out at the actor kum comedian Lil Win, saying that he is not a musician.
“Some songs go viral not because they are too nice but rather because of the personality behind and the relationship. Lil Win is known to be an entertainer so the fact that his songs are popular out there doesn’t make him a musician. There are several things that account in music than just being popular, so for me, I’ll classify Lil Win’s songs as just for laughs.”
Oteng also spoke about his joy that Lil Win wasn’t nominated in any category at the 2017 VGMA.
“I was impressed when VGMA took him out of the nominees. One needs to rise up to a certain standard before he or she can be considered as a musician. If I’m to choose one actor who is also a musician, that will be Agya Koo because he was once a contemporary highlife singer. We have enough jokers in the industry already.”
