Watch: I was a threat to Reggie Rockstone in the 90s- Lord Kenya reveals

Published

on

In the 90s, the two reigning rappers in Ghana were Reggie Rockstone and Lord Kenya which at a point in time created some sort of animosity between the two.

In a recent interview on the Hammer Time show, the now Evangelist Lord Kenya said before the release of his debut album, Reggie Rockstone was so wary of his prospects and afraid of an overtake.

Lord  Kenya was however, crowned “Artiste of the Year” at the Ghana Music Awards in 2001, making him the ‘best’ at the time.

Revisiting their long time beef on the Hammer Time show, Lord Kenya asserted that Reggie was his target at the time as he struggled to make it mainstream.

“Mahoney P wasn’t my target; Reginald was the target. Because he made hiplife popular at that time. He feared at the time that I would dominate with Twi rap because he was doing English at the time. I rapped in English, Twi and even Patois so he was afraid,” he stated.

He added that because Reggie was doing English rap which somewhat did not resonate with all Ghanaians, he was worried about the fact that his Twi rap will be welcomed by all Ghanaians which will undo him and his music.

Lord Kenya however added that the ‘beef’ was healthy and a chance for them to prove themselves.

“But I think it [beef] was healthy. It was about ‘prove yourself.”

Lord Kenya also revealed that his inspiration came from the late American rapper, 2pac.

“It was [2] Pac. He was a literature rapper. That’s why he is still relevant. Poetry is powerful. Pac hadn’t come into the scene when I was rapping. I was underground rapper when I first heard him and I was like this is what I was talking about. You couldn’t picture him when he is rapping. So, I took inspiration from him and did it in Twi,” he added.
