Shatta Wale and Yaa Pono have thrown excitement in the air with their ongoing lyrical fracas but Ex-Doe, the man considered the originator of hiplife’s first beef is not enthused about the situation.
17-years ago when hiplife was relatively new and more vibrant, Ex-Doe and his friend-turned-foe engaged in one of the most exciting but scariest rivalry ever witnessed in Ghana’s music industry.
Ex-Doe granted an interview to Dr. Pounds of Hitz FM where he expressed his fear that the Shatta Wale-Yaa Pono beef could turn violent so steps should be taken to nip in the bud.
He said if any of the feuding party is outshone, he might take revenge and this might involve guns and bloody confrontations. Ex-Doe also used the opportunity to express his regret for beefing his friend Chicago.
“I regret beefing with Chicago it feels like we taught the kids something bad. The ‘beef’ doesn’t help the industry though it has brought about attention,” he said.
“We were young when we started (beefing) but when you grow up you and leave the lifestyle, you will realise that even 2Pac and Biggie would have regretted it if they were alive.
“In their case, they lost their lives for doing that. We are lucky we are still alive,” the rapper stressed.
