The legendary Hiplife legend Barima Sidney, christened Sidney Kofi Ofori, has revealed his support for beefing among hip-hop artists, as long as it does not lead to the pulling of cutlass.

“Without beef, the music industry gets boring, so it’s good that every now and then some artists insult each other as much as healthy beef,” he said in an interview with Amansan Krakye.

He added at Kastle FM in Cape Coast, “It shouldn’t be beef that will lead to cutlass tugging, but the clash of lyrics makes the industry exciting, so I support beefing.”

The ‘Scent No’ hitmaker, who has been in the Ghanaian music scene for 25 years, revealed on the Kastle Entertainment Show that beefing among artists should be lyrical, but it shouldn’t escalate into chaos.

“Because our battle is over with lyrics, beef is sometimes allowed in the hip-hop industry as long as it doesn’t escalate to another level,” he told the host.

The beefing among Ghanaian rappers goes back to the days of Obrafour and Lord Kenya, with greats like Sarkodie and M.anifest, Strongman and Medikal, Obibini and Amerado being added recently.
