Rapper Guru has for the first time revealed that the ‘diss’ song titled ‘Kasiebo’ which he composed together with Obrafour has had a negative toll on his career in Ghana.
The rapper opened up in an interview on Behind the Fame on Drive Time on Joy FM with Lexis Bill on how the act had affected his ability to win awards due to the influence of the targeted personalities in the song.
“The problem came from the very day with the song with Obrafour…that was a major problem,” he revealed.
“Most of these people [who we offended] they play a major role. At that time they were that big… Okyame Kwame and Obour,” he continued.
‘Kasiebo’ was released about nine years ago and caused an uproar among music lovers.
The song has been labelled as a direct attack on the personalities of Okyeame Kwame (O.K) and Obour.
In Guru’s lyrics, he alleged that a musician by name O.K had defiled a teenager in Kumasi and also downplayed Okyeame Kwame’s claim that he is the best rapper alive.
Guru also called out Obour and mocked his efforts at reviving Hiplife, a genre the latter felt was dying.
The artiste mentioned that Obour was extremely excited that he lost out to Shatta Wale on the ‘Song of the Year’ award at 2014 VGMAs.
“The way Obour [was] happy for Wale eh. I saw him. That day I missed out…” He said.
Guru denied assertions that his words in the song were influenced by Obrafour and mentioned that he wrote his lyrics.
He stated that even though he has partnered with Okyeame Kwame and Obour to perform at three of their events and also apologised, he still feels they have not forgiven him.
