Samini is the most original.
Too sellable both locally and internationally.
Let me give you a tale big bro.
If you go to the Market you would want buy an original copy of everything.
Firstly, Amongst these 4 people, who has been here longer? Samini.
Secondly one had to throw shots at Samini in order to grow a certain relevance in the industry to which he recently confirmed on a TV station that those were all lies. (We will come to that)
Thirdly we all know the relationship between Samini and Stonebwoy. One birthed the other if not fully, he had a great impact on his career to which Ghana and the world accept and understand.
Sarkodie also had to throw subtle shots at Samini when he was was coming up when he mentioned him in along with Yoggi Doggy in his rap verse, etc.
You need to try touching Samini to gain recognition. You need to have a certain affiliation with him to be big.
Talk less about Kofi Kinaata, Mugees and the rest.
On the corporate front, Samini represented MTN for 8 solid years as a full time brand Ambassador. I stand to be corrected though but that may be the longest anyone has been in that capacity. He currently represents UNFPA, Rotary, Global Citizen which are more internationally acclaimed.
In awards, people keep talking about BET etc. During the era that Samini won the MOBO, where and what was BET Awards?
Tell me another Ghanaian Artist that won that during his era. I hear other Artists form Ghana making cases with IRAWMA Awards, etc. Samini won it first.
Show me another Ghanaian Artist that has even had a nomination from European Music Awards after Samini did it.
He recently won ReggaeVille Album of the Year with his 7th Studio Album “Untamed” (Full Reggae Album with 22 songs and no feature). Him and the Album became the first AFRICAN Artist and the FIRST African Album to win it. He won it against the likes of Shaggy and Sting, Damien Marley, Chronixxx and others.
Let’s come into lyricism and performance- The least said about those the better.
SAMINI is unmatched. He’s referred to as a LEGEND by all Ghanaians. The rest are not… THAT’S THE DIFFERENCE.
To make it more juicy, it looks like he’s just getting started… 🎯
