Epixode has spoken on behalf of all Ghanaian musicians, especially those who are easily trolled for one reason or the other in an emotional statement he published on Facebook.
The Reggae/Highlife musician voiced his disgust at the offensive remarks made toward musicians while insisting that negativity can have a significant negative impact on one’s craft.
Epixode shared his sentiment in a post on Facebook and said, “The diss. The insults. The comparison is so ill-mannered. Let’s celebrate ourselves because all we have achieved we did by ourselves. Individually we are our own labels, our own sony music universals. But still, we rock shoulders with artistes on those labels.”
Epixode continued, “Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but those opinions shouldn’t water down the hard work of the others. It’s just sad that we turn to be the Judas to our own Jesus. What have you done to support this artiste you are disrespecting?
“The disrespect is too much. Sometimes I wish these people know what it takes to write a simple line in a song, not to talk of adding melody to create a 3min song. Hoping to make it a hit. Respect and manners. We all need each other!”
