Ghanaian rapper, M.anifest says he doesn’t believe in censoring lyrics of songs.
According to him, just like a writer or poet is allowed to use any diction to express a concept, he believes rappers must have the same privilege.
“I don’t believe in censorship. I don’t go into a song saying ABC, its like any writer. Just like Ama Atta Aidoo, she uses whatever she wants to use. Its not something done for short value but if needs be. We have to be real. People have grown to know authenticity so for me to censor myself, it will be a big fail…
He, however, added that, he adheres to the censorship rules when writing his songs.
“We do the radio and clean versions, we master all of these. I always have a radio edit…” he said.
Rapper M.anifest has been billed as the headline act for the very first edition of SOLO which promises to be a night of total entertainment and socialization.
Dubbed SOLO, the event will be an electrifying one-on-one experience with some of the listener’s favourite artistes.
Patrons will get the chance to interact with these artistes as well as jam to their songs throughout the night.
