Kwaisey Pee: I’m not competing with anybody

"I tried to collaborate with a couple of them (new crop of artistes) but it didn't work. And I feel like you know what let me just do my own thing"

Ghanaian highlife legend Kwaisey Pee has said that he has been unable to collaborate with the new crop of artistes because they have always turned down his requests.

Speaking with Elvis Crystal on the 99.5 Rush Hour on Wednesday (10 August), he said: “I send them songs and I tell them to check it out and they give me the impression and motivation thinking it’s going to happen, but the next time when I call them, they don’t pick up, I text them, no reply.”

“If what I brought on the table is not good you can talk to me about it and even suggest ways of making it better,” Kwaisey Pee said. “You know, just like ideas on board. I have sent a lot of songs to more than five artistes, and I got the same results from them.”

No competition

“I don’t compete with anybody to start with. I can even go to Daddy Lumba for a collaboration, I don’t think of competition. When I come to you as an artiste to work with you, I don’t think about competition. It’s all about the music for me,” he said.

According to him he approached King Promise on a feature but didn’t get a positive feedback from him.

“I have approached King Promise as well and he never did it. And I met him (King Promise) after the VGMAs. We were in the same category “Best male vocalist category”. It was him, myself, Joe Mettle and other guys. And I won that category, so after that I met him and told him that I have sent him a song and was still waiting on him but he told me he didn’t know about it.

“One thing I have noticed about the music industry is that most of the artistes pretend a lot. Even though I was dealing with his manager, when I went to the house he (King Promise) was there. So, definitely he knew about it,” he added.

New song

Explaining the reason behind his new gospel song, he said, “all good things come from above, I’m not Buddhist, I’m not Muslim, I’m not Krishna or any of that sort. I believe in God. And sometimes you feel like God has done marvelously in your life.”

“This year I haven’t done anything so I decided to do a gospel song. This year it is the most high that gave me my talent so I decided to take that opportunity to do something to praise him.”

“You know it’s music, it flows through my veins. I sleep music, I eat music, I do everything music. So, if I come to you it’s not because of competition, I’m coming to you because I want us to do music,” he said.
