CEO of Slip Entertainment, Mark Okraku Mantey has highly disagreed with the popular hiplife artist Mzbel. www.entertainmentgh.com has revealed!
According to Mzbel, hit songs of today do not make any sense.
However, Mark Okraku Mantey has stated that, good music does not necessarily depend on its lyrical content.
This is what Mzbel said:
The music producer, Mark, says rhythm and beat come together to make music and can thrive with or without its lyrics.
“If you say music, music is the instrumentation, the rhythm is the music, and then the lyrics are lyrics,” he explained.
He made reference to the likes of American Grammy Award-winning Jazzist Bob James who do instrumentations that are still referred to as music.
Mr Okraku Mantey further cited other examples of songs that had transcended geographical boundaries, despite their lyrics.
According to him, the likes of gospel act, Ohemaa Mercy’s ‘Eye W’adwen’, and Lucky Mensah’s ‘Come Back to Me’ had been aired heavily at nightclubs in Sierra Leone some years ago.
He said these are indications that “when the song crosses over, the lyrics do not matter.”
