We saw where you had an azonto dance craze and in Jamaica we have many dances as well, how similar do you think our cultures are, although many Jamaicans have not visited Ghana?
From my History Jamaicans are Ghanaians so I’m not surprised. Our lineage and hey…Mama Rita lives here.
What religion are you?
In Africa as a whole, more and more people are leaning towards becoming Christians, why do you feel this is happening?
The message of peace,hope and the fact that Jesus sacrificed his life for us,sinners so that we may get close to the almighty God.
How proud should Jamaicans feel about the late Bob Marley?
Bob Marley did not consider himself a Christian but sang about peace and brotherhood, what do you think about his views?
I think the message is the essence. After all isn’t peace what we all want?
Many black women are now turning to bleaching their skin including Africans and Jamaicans, as a man what do you think has caused this and how do you recommend we go about helping women to love the skin they are in?
Inferiority Complex has caused this. Africans should promote the African image more instead of advertising the European look as this will go a long way to make Africans believe in themselves.
How do you think music could influence this?
By making a conscious effort to embed that in our message and video clips. The portrayal of ourselves should always be positive
If Reggae was to partner up with African music what do you imagine the outcome to be?
It is already partnered but to make it official will mean that a bigger market and more opportunities economically , financially ,etc
Do you think Sting would be a perfect platform for this and why?
Sting had started and has experience and the motivation to make this happen . If not Sting , who else?
