Captain Planet has gotten a question for Ghanaians who continue to compare some of the Music Industry greats to the young ones.
The musician is left wondering what exactly Ghanaians are expecting from the big acts who has been holding the industry for years now before they appreciate their good work done.
“I dey wonder what prove again ghanaians dey want from shatta, sarkodie , stonebwoy, samini etc ?” Captain Planet ask
The 4X4 member believes likes of Stonebwoy, Samini, Sarkodie and Shatta Wale has all paid their dues and what we need to do now is to thank them for their service instead of comparing them to the current crop of musicians making waves.
To him, it’s not a child’s play to stay relevant in music for at least 10 years and these artists have done it with back to back hit songs and also bringing glory to the Ghanaian music industry with several awards.
“Give them their flowers 🌺 & stop comparing the young ones to them. To stay 10 years & over in this industry no be easy oo.” He added

The rise of young musicians like Yaw Tog, Gyakie, Larruso, Mr. Drew and many others sparked comparisons from some sections of Ghanaians who are quick to rate their craft to that of the old gees in the game.
In fact Currently Yaw Tog is being tagged as a better rapper than Sarkodie, Larruso on the other hand is seen as a mega Dancehall star than Shatta Wale just as Gyakie is claimed to have vocal powers beyond the reach of Efya and all this are total disrespects according to Captain Planet.
