I feel underrated; I deserve acknowledgment – Medikal laments

Multiple award-winning Ghanaian rap artiste, Samuel Adu Frimpong, popularly known as Medikal has expressed his concern about being underrated in the Ghanaian music industry.

According to him, his unique style and hard work have not received the attention and acknowledgment he deserves in the industry.

Speaking in an interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM, the “Omo Ada” hitmaker expressed these sentiments, stating that he has been able to separate his personal identity from his artist persona while reflecting on some of his accomplishments.

“Sometimes, I feel like I’m underrated. I know how to dissociate myself from the brand Medikal. Some people carry their persona with the brand. I sit down sometimes and watch my shows, and I’ll be like, ‘This guy is dope.’ That’s why I have been able to remain relevant for a long time. It’s not easy,” he said.

Medikal emphasized that he’s not ungrateful but believes he deserves appreciation and recognition from Ghanaians for his hard work.

“I feel underrated; they should give me my flowers. I’m not trying to sound ungrateful; I just feel like there should be more light thrown at me. I am a very hardworking guy, so Ghanaians shouldn’t sleep on me. More attention should be given to me,” he stated.

When questioned about whether his distinctive style may be contributing to the lack of attention, Medikal defended his approach, stating, “I’m doing everything right. Just that my style is different; people find it hard to accept it.”
