Maradona Yeboah Adjei, known on stage as Guru, has refuted assertions that Obrafour’s controversial ‘Kaseibo’ track he featured on was a diss song.
According to him, contrary to the huge controversy the song generated, ‘Kaseibo’ was simply a creative piece that was not targeted at any one.
Ghana’s Rap Sofo, Obrafour, sparked one of the industry’s fiercest rap wars when he was alleged to have mocked Rap Docta, Okyeame Kwame, on the song.
There was bad blood between the two after Obrafour, known in real life as Michael Kwabena Okyere Darko, released the song in 2009.
The song questioned Okyeame Kwame also known in real life as Kwame Nsiah Appau’s claim that he was the best rapper alive in the country.
It triggered a war of words between the two both on air and off air, grabbing media attention and becoming one of the most publicized music ‘wars’ in the country.
Eight years after the release of the song, Guru has explained that the song was not a potshot at anyone.
Speaking in an interview on the Cosmopolitan Mix on Joy FM with Doreen Andoh on Tuesday he cleared the air saying, “It wasn’t a diss song. They thought it was a diss song. Nobody took the time to write about anyone.”
“Looking at where we got the idea from, it was more about expressing himself about what was going on in Ghana. We were only being creative.
“To me that was the most creative song in our industry,” the ‘Samba’ hit rapper added.
To further buttress his response, Guru noted that, “If you listen to the song, nobody’s name was mentioned. If I want to diss you, I can go straight by calling your name…”
The rapper revealed that he is in very terms with Okyeame Kwame, who many thought the ‘Kaseibo’ song was targeted at.
