He continued “But I feel that maybe if we do the songs for everyone across Africa to be able to understand, at least as for English everyone understands”.

In an exclusive interview with Amansan Krakye via Showbiz on Property, the ‘Friday Night’ hitmaker said that the reason why he doesn’t sing in Fante is that he feels not everyone will understand if he sings in Fante.

“As for the Fante language not everyone will be able to understand it because sometimes there are people who speak Twi but do not even understand the Fante language,” he added.

“Sometimes the people in other tribes who don’t understand Twi will understand you perfectly when you speak English that’s why we decided that if that’s so then why don’t I do all my songs in English?
