Female entertainers should start standing up for themselves against bullies in the entertainment industry. Highlife music veteran, Reggie Rockstone a.k.a. Grandpapa, gave the admonition on YFM Mud Morning Show as part of the Made In Ghana celebration.
Reggie disclosed how happy he gets when he sees female entertainers standing up for themselves against bullies in the entertainment industry.
Said he: “I want Eno to listen to this, I want Freda Rhymz to listen to this, I want all you females to listen to this. From the very inception or beginning of hiplife, I included women straight. Ms Naa is on a song with me called Death For Life.
“There was always that inclusion which I felt was very necessary. So if I see the likes of Eno rapping then I get excited. From the very beginning, I knew it was necessary to do so”.
According to Reggie, people must learn to recognize great talents no matter the gender or race of a person.
Added he: “Females who are on the mic, don’t let them bully you with that tag, ‘female emcee’. You are an emcee! You are a rapper! I am saying this because this is what they do to bamboozle the women. ‘Oh the female rappers, oh the African rapper’. No! Sarkodie is a rapper. He is just a rapper from Africa. Rap does not need physical strength. It is about the brain and tongue”.
