“Breaking Bad” In Ghanaian Music Content: A Case Of Bra Koffy’s “POISONED SKY” EP. [Article - Must Read]

Artiste: BraKoffy 

Ghanaian rapper, songwriter and performer, born Amos Baah Yanney in Kwadaso, a suburb in the Ashanti region of Ghana on 30th August, 1991.

Brakoffy by stage name is a Ghanaian Musician and Song Writer who pays extensive attention to what he puts on records. His understanding of music transcends beyond just blending voice over instrumentals and thus, more concerned about writing songs that can stand the test of time. 

‘Poisoned Sky’ is a rap EP that is filled with mind racking punchlines, proverbial sayings, wordplays and interesting storylines that targets certain group of music listeners. The general idea of the “EP” was to touch every music lover, but in retrospect, a careful study of how people listen to music in Ghana has been projected towards “empty” commercial music rather than ‘well scripted’ storied music. 

The Fulcrum of this EP thus, is to “break bad” in music content. In other words, direct listeners and songwriters to turn towards “the real life of music”. Music should 70% of the time, educate, entertain and sometimes advocate something positive to listeners. Listeners usually get served what is on the menu; they go with anything creative from their favorite artist without question. 

And so, songwriters and artists should inculcate the habit of turning their listeners to a better version of the music world (which is deep rooted music that has well written storylines and wordplays, etc). 
Songs like Yesu, Abracadabra and Wo Girl No; On the EP addresses social issues and the rap in them is advocating what the average Ghanaian youth faces. 

Listen to the EP and leave your general comments on how to “break bad” in the industry.
