Upcoming Kumasi-based music sensation Akete Boge says fellow entertainer Yaa Jackson has no talent, is a wannabe and doesn not even know how to dress and carry herself.
The nineteen (19) year old “Sweet Part” hit singer, born Grace Siaw also said she is the only female artiste in Kumasi.
In an interview with Nana Akua Afriyie, aka Label, host of Hot Showbiz Filla on Ghnewsnow, Akete Boge said being real is vital to surviving in the industry. Asked by the host who her favorite male artists are, Akete quickly replied, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Sarkodie, King Promise and Kofi Kinata. Label then went on to ask her who her favorite female artists are, to which she replied, “Adina, Becca, Afia, Sister Afia and Wendy Shay”.
The diss came when Label asked Akete Boge to name her favorite female artists in Kumasi. “I don’t see any [female artists] in Kumasi… do we have any?”, she replied. When the host mentioned Yaa Jackson, Akete boge went to town on the actress/singer.
“She has not been called… She knows nothing about music, the vocals, everything… dressing; from head to toe, nothing”. she said. “Its better for her to go back to acting in her Kumawood movies, music hasn’t called her” she added.
It hurts me at times when people compare me to this girl
“It hurts me at times when people compare me to this girl”, the young songstress said.
