Musician Justice Amoah, popularly known as Patapaa, says it is inappropriate for music lovers to compare Black Sherifâ€™s â€˜Kwaku the Travellerâ€™ to his debut hit single â€˜One Cornerâ€™.
According to Pataapa, no Ghanaian song has made waves around the world more than â€˜One Corner,â€™ which he believes remains Ghanaâ€™s biggest worldwide hit.
Black Sherifâ€™s â€˜Kwaku the Travellerâ€™ has also made waves since its release, becoming the first Ghanaian song to rise to Number One on the Top 100 Apple Music Charts in Nigeria.
It has also debuted on the Billboard Top Thriller Global Charts and the Billboard Afrobeats Songs Charts.
But, speaking in an interview with GNA Entertainment, Patapaa said that â€˜One Cornerâ€™ placed Ghanaâ€™s music on the global stage with music lovers around the world paying attention to the country and what its creatives had to offer.
â€œThe challenge that â€˜One Cornerâ€™ generated all over the world was staggering. For me, I consider Black Sherifâ€™s â€˜Kwaku the Travellerâ€™ as a social media song and it doesnâ€™t even come close to â€˜Scopatumana.â€™
â€œI do agree that â€˜Kwaku the Travellerâ€™ is doing very well, but people shouldnâ€™t compare it to my â€˜One Cornerâ€™. People have to respect my â€˜One Cornerâ€™ song because it placed Ghana on the world music map,â€ he told GNA Entertainment.
Pataapa further disclosed he will release his next song titled â€˜Glass Nkoaaâ€™ in the first week of May. He is anticipating the song to do just as well as â€˜One Cornerâ€™.
