Singer cum songwriter and producer, Akwaboah has revealed that nowadays Nigerian artistes use Ghanaian local dialect in most of their songs.
Speaking on Kastle FM in Cape Coast, the ‘Obiaa hit maker, said it’s not true for anyone to say that Ghanaian artistes are copying their Nigerian counterparts.
“It’s a lie that Ghanaian artiste are copying Nigerians by using some of their local languages in our song,” he fumed.
“The truth is that nowadays Nigerian artistes are rather using some Ghanaian local languages in their songs,” he said in an interview with Amansan Krakye.
Citing a typical example of Nigerian artistes copying and using Ghanaian local languages, he said words like ‘odo yewu’ and ‘ma nante saa’ can be heard in Nigerian songs.
“When you listen to their songs they use words like odo ye wu in their music and other words in twi,” he added.
“So it’s them rather copying our languages like ma nante saa, so they’re rather using our words in their songs,” he justified.
