Ghanaian musician and businessman Desmond Kwesi Blackmore known in the showbiz as D-Black has said he decided not to write good rap songs anymore because he has realized it does not pay that much.
According to D-Black who spoke with Abeiku Santana on the famous show “Atuu” monitored by MyNewsGh.com, the days he worked hard writing good raps on his songs are over because, he couldn’t make enough money from his career but immediately he released his hit song “Vera” which has little rap verses, everything changed with his life.
“When I was rapping, I was broke. When I was doing my rap stuff I was getting the accolades, BET but I didn’t get money”. D-Black said when asked why he does not do good rap.
According to the business mogul, he has not stopped rap music but is just trying to be ultra-commercial.
D-Black as known in the music industry has been criticized for the past decade greatly by both his fans and music critics over his style of music
Many have said the kind of rap he does in his music does not befit someone known to be a Hip Pop artiste with sections concluding he is a lazy rapper.
“I went to the BET with $800 and when I came back I was broke for a very long time. But when I wrote “Vera” and recorded “Vera” everything changed”, he stressed.
