In an interview with Blaq boy on GhOne Entertainment TV, Gasmilla revealed that even though he knew his song Telemo will get recognition, he didn’t expect it to travel very far the way it has.
He said; “I never saw myself doing anything like Telemo until capaster called, he was one of my boys from way back and he was an underground artist trying to reach the heights. He kept on pressuring me to record with him and I did, now see where we are.”
Gasmilla further revealed that, though Capaster was the inspiration behind the Telemo song, Capaster didn’t have faith in the song.
“Capaster told me that there’s no way Telemo is going to be a hit song, so if possible I should remove his verse from the song. I only laughed at him and we all laughed because from that studio, I just knew I had produce something special, Capaster was yet to see that.
“Few weeks later,Capaster called me expressing his excitement on how fast the song was exploding. I thought he was joking but it was true, Telemo was the new hit,” he said.
“I later called him to pull his legs, I asked him whether I should still go ahead to remove his verse from the song. It was very exciting to release that, because I didn’t ignore Capaster when he needed me has paid off.” He added.

It was a beautiful Saturday morning, only half awake by the beautiful songs sung by the early birds. I could feel the anxiety and the anticipation building within me for the upcoming event The B.A.R 2 Concert. After experiencing the grates Hip-hop concert ever introduced in GH by The B.A.R (E.L) you should understand I couldn’t expect any less but to experience history in the making by this music maestro which is EL.
The time was finally up for me to leave home for the concert, and then came the biggest challenge “what to where (I bet ma girls can relate)”. Judging from last years’ experience wearing heels will not permit me to reach the level of euphoria (excitement) I intended to reach. Well, how fair will it be if I don’t give you my final decision on the cloths; I went with the all black theme, since that is my favorite song on the B.A.R 2 mixtape, I top that up with sneakers, hell yeah that’s what I did. My natural hair on fleek with just a little yellow highlight to keep it interesting. Which actually is the true and natural beauty of an African woman, the natural beauty that’s fade-less and the skin color that shines and glitters so brightly. But is quite maladroit, unhandy, clunky and cranky how some African girls do not cherish the natural, pureness and blackness of African beauty. So, I finally got to the World Trade Center and flashed my VVIP ticket to get the pass tag and an interesting front role seat. My mind was blown with my first peek inside, Dj Mic Smith doing his thing on the turn tables; the one, two, one, two things, got the audience moving they body to his tunes. This guy is a genius, his flair on the turn tables put chills down my spine.
It took a while for the performance to begin, but the long wait was met with an explosion of a performance which got me standing after the first verse. I could hardly believe the songs being performed where produced right here in Ghana, the intensity of the music got to peoples heart, I could hear some humming to the music even though that was the first time they were hearing it, some were also moving to the rhythm of the song. Guess our music industry have not taken their time well enough to analyse our youths, simply because our music doesn’t send any message across the continent, and our youths are more interested in beats rather than lyrics, trust me we got so much talents in the industry, to my greatest wonderment.
I keep asking myself where are the appreciation and awards taken or given to. Are we not suppose to invest in our own? Such concerts should be held like always and be compared to that of AMA or Grammy Award. When my little cousin sis heard Life style by Yaw she asked me big sis is it his song… I thought was an American. Even though I gave her an Answer I was really sad within she never believed that a Ghanaian could do that but I don’t blame her she is use to listening to Drake and every other American music. Old Artist passed through. The concert was maaaaad fun, they took it back to the 90’s; the era of Grand Papa Reggie Rockstone and Ex-Doe and Chicago. A massive explosion of the old school hip-hop music, this is a true history in the making. Underground artists like Yaw Nanna, Gaeter, Stunner and many others came through, the stage was lit. Lil Shaker, Jayso, M3nsa and Wanlov, Gemini , VVIPand Kwaw Kese are some of the grand artist who blessed the stage with their outstanding performances. All this while the room was full with people on the first, second a guess you started regretting u bdid not step out last night.

Kanye West was yesterday awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award at the MTV Video Music Award. Mr. West, in his acceptance speech musician announced his intention to contest the presidency in the United States.
He also had a lot as usual to say about the current state of music and life in general.
TV Host, Sandra Ankobiah whilst watching the show thought that someone, in the person of boyfriend Paedae sounded just as ‘deep’ as West.
She took to Twitter writing: “Just watched Kanye give his speech at the VMAs, and he reminds me so much of Pae. He’s just as deep.”
Dae has been criticized severally for what many say, is his inability to rap or make ‘sense’ when he raps. She obviously disagrees with all who have that opinion.
Paedae confirmed his 2-year relationship with Ankobiah in an interview on Live FM months after several months of media speculation.
Former member D’Cryme’s Twi Pop Records now signed to O.D.A Music Ray Jay is out with another brand new single for the year.
Titled “Boys Aye Wild”, the song produced by Mix Master Garzy is dedicated to all those hustling to make it happen.
Hiplife artiste Kofi Kinaata, real name, Martin King Arthur, has asserted that the Western Regional capital of Takoradi boasts of a large number of talented rappers than Accra.
According to him, several rappers in Accra lack the basic flair in music but are fortunate to get the needed support to enable them sail through in their career.
He also pointed to the fact that if at least twenty (20) rappers from Takoradi are given the necessary push, it would to a large extent impact positively on the development of music in Ghana.
The Fante god rapper told Kwame B on Music Lane on Kasapa 102.3FM Thursday, that those who are creative in the industry but lack resources should be supported, and not those with opportunities but are sub-standard.
“Takoradi has got much-talented rappers than Accra, but lacks the resources to push their music works. If twenty (20) rappers should have same opportunities as some in Accra do, then Ghana music will see great transformation. I have nurtured about 15 rappers based in Takoradi who are absolutely amazing.”
The Takoradi born music act has said his new hit single will be out soon.

Mutli-award winning songstress, Efya finally drops the much anticipated single with BET award winner, Sarkodie.
Top Ghanaian gospel artiste with the hit song “Adom”, Mrs Perpetual Tsahey popularly known as Perppy has hinted that a gospel musician can win the coveted artiste of the year award at the next VGMA.
Perppy, who some time back proclaimed candidly that she would win souls for Christ in night clubs, was talking to DJ Murphy of Sunyani-based Metro FM on whether a gospel musician can overthrow Stonebwoy.
“My brother, Ghanaian gospel musicians are really doing well. I just don’t understand why none of us has ever won the top award. It’s either we are not doing something right, or maybe it’s a deliberate attempt not to hype we the gospel musicians,” she told Murphy.
So do you really think a gospel musician can overthrow Stonebwoy? Murphy again asked.
“Yes! Everything is possible, but bear in mind we [are] not doing songs because of awards but to win souls for Christ. We are still working hard when the organisers see the need to award us fine. But again, Yes, a gospel musician can win the coveted Artiste of the Year award at the next VGMA if the organisers will be very fair,” she answered.
So you think the organisers are not fair?
“Hahaha…I’m not saying they’re not fair. They’re humans, and every normal human being is bound to make mistakes so maybe they’ve been making mistakes …hahaha,” Perppy noted with humor.
Perppy is currently out with a nine track album titled Ayeyi, which she said, is the song that inspires her most.
Some of the tracks on the album are Ayeyi, Adom, Blessed Assurance & Tie.
