Ghana?s celebrated dance hall musician Samini, has in his new song mimicked someone believed to be a judge in the ongoing presidential election petition.
In the song, ?Pink Sheet?, Samini clears his throat before stating that: ?my learned friend, I put it to you to bring the pink sheet. Let?s strike out some fake names, thank you.?
Though Samini does not mention the name of any judge, the way he clears his throat makes him sound like a Supreme Court judge who Ghanaians have become very familiar with, for often clearing his throat before commencing a statement.
Perhaps the title of the song by Samini was heavily influenced by this Supreme Court Judge and the ongoing election petition.
Just some few days of its release the ?Pink Sheet? song has sparked a lot of controversies and complaints from lovers of dancehall music in and out of the country.
Some believe the dancehall artiste of the year, best dancehall artiste and best performer award winner at the just ended Bass Award 2013 ceremony shouldn?t have recorded such a song at all after almost a year of being silent on all sort of negative attacks from the current recognized dancehall king in Ghana Bandana, who is well known in the country as Shata Wale.
Some believe even though Samini did not mention Shata Wale?s name in the ?Pink Sheet? song, one can easily read meanings and perhaps say for a fact who he is pointing fingers at, which to them looks infantile.
The ?Pink Sheet? song has really exposed how desperate Samini is to ride on the fame of some African arts that is making it big internationally.
Since Samini?s attempt to ride on the popularity of Nigerian duo P-Square did not work out for him when he did a reply to the duo?s ?Alingo? song, he is only coming back to attack Shata and Sarkodie whose fan-base of music lovers in the country is becoming bigger each day especially with dancehall king, Shata Wale.
A section of the dancehall music fans who have critically examined ?Pink Sheet? are of the opinion that Samini should not have released such a song since he claimed he is a decent artiste.
