Tongue twisting rapper, Quata has agreed with musician Mr Eazi, who received a lot of backlash for saying that Ghana’s influence on Nigerian music cannot be over emphasised.
According to Quata, some Nigerians have been sampling songs from some of Ghana’s top music producers.
On Wednesday, Mr Eazi tweeted: “Ghana's influence on present day "Naija Sound" cannot be over emphasized!!!”.
This tweet sparked a lot of controversy on social media with insults, mostly from Nigerian subscribers.
Speaking in an interview with Doreen Avio of Joy News, Quata said that Nigerians have been sampling beats from several producers like Appietus, Jay-Q and Hammer.
According to him, Nigerians have been incorporating Ghanaian music into theirs. He also added that Ghana is the apex in Africa and almost everybody took a bit from the country’s music.
“They were sampling tunes from us and were refining what we do to make theirs,” he stressed.
The rapper added that he can say for a fact that Nigerians understudied us and the likes of 2face Idibia came to Ghana secretly to record their songs.
“They only knew [we did] proper - hundred percent - recording in Ghana. That’s why most of their artistes came here secretly to record. The engineers were smart enough to do what we were doing, study it, and adapt the style. They understudied us,” he explained.
Other music artistes like Ghanaian rapper Kojo Cue, M.anifest and others have also agreed with Mr Eazi, who is a Nigerian-born artiste.
Tongue Twisting is truly an art; a reinvention of rap, where words flow in a rhythmic chain, linked musically in a perfect skilled beat. This is the creation of Quata Budukusu: a new and unique style within the hip-hop genre, which honors the traditional hip-life while keeping a sharp and modern beat. Since its creation, “Tongue Twisting” in Ghana has gained track, with other rappers following the lead of –the always innovative– Quata Budukusu.
Besides being the inventor of tongue twisting in Twi (an African language spoken by the Ashanti people – modern day Ghana), Quata Budukusu is considered the fastest rapper in Ghana. He is also a talented songwriter and a versatile artiste capable of delivering compelling performances in a variety of music genres. He can rap, sing, do dancehall, pop music and much more. As an international artiste from Ghana, Quata Budukusu is fluent in both English and Twi compositions. In fact, he started his musical career by combining English and Ghanaian vibe (Twi) in the hip-hop genre.
Last year, a 35-year-old Budukusu made his expected way back to the stage, signed to Bakus Records and Entertainment, after a six-year period of being away from music. His return is solid as can be. Quata Budukusu is already out with numerous singles which include; “Wind N Go low” and “One Life to Live” produced by Diaz Qlasik, “Pum Pum Shots” produced by Vegas Ace, and “Ohia” produced by King Joe just to mention a few. This is just the beginning as he has over hundred songs recorded for his new album, Quantum Legacy, to be released later this year. He also recorded with Uhuru group from South Africa last year, and he is in the process of releasing both the video and audio for the song titled “Ginger.” Ginger was recorded by DJ Clap in South Africa with the video directed by Director Cube of Kacube Creatives also from South Africa.
In this yet to be released album, a mature Quata Budukusu steers through a variety of music genres, while keeping its roots as a talented African musician and twisting tongue master. Apparently, he is showing that his hibernation period made him grow as an artiste and performant. Without a doubt, his latest job is the most versatile hip-life masterpiece yet to hit the world.

We are all winners for making it to 2017 regardless of what must have happened in years before the year 2017.
