Dobble Tee has disclosed that his Shee Koo Sheei is not a diss track.
Though his latest hit Shee Koo Sheei has been considered by many as a diss track targeted at Maccasio, Dobble Tee maintains that “it’s not a diss but a controversial track and its content is too wide to be targeted to a specific person.” He added that “there are some leaders who don’t make way for young ones as in offices and other workplaces you find yourself in; people of that sort can be referred to as Abanga.” According to him, the song simply talks about the fake leaders we have in Ghana and if an artiste fits that description, he too can be called an “Abanga”.
Speaking on Fiila fm’s Real Talk segment of the Daybreak Tamale morning show on Friday with host Akosua Kwartemaa Boakye, Dobble Tee of Boss Family who recently had a successful concert on August 12 at Radach Lodge, Tamale made clarifications on some controversies surrounding his art. He is one of the best rappers in the north and has many back-to-back hits. Some of which include Nzo Issah, Sule, Chop Am, Ka Di Puli and Shee Koo Sheei.
Born Yakubu Iddrisu Maltiti, the signee of Boss Family has collaborated with the likes of Don Sigli, One 9ra, Episode and S. K. Y. He has one album to his name.
The hard-truth telling rapper disclosed that he has no beef with anyone in the music Industry. He asserts that his main aim is to showcase Dagbang music to the world. “I wanna make Tamale proud, I want people to say Dagombas too dem de rap,” he gushed.
He wishes to collaborate with Kanye West in the not too distant future. Although he listens to lots of musicians in Ghana, his favorites are El and Strongman.
Talking about his show last week, Dobble Tee stated that his fans surprised him by coming out in their numbers to support his New Guy concert. “The fans dribbled me,” he said in smiles.
On his creative process, specifically his punch lines, Dobble Tee said he doesn’t face any difficulty in arriving at his lyrics; “I roam with grownups so I can say I steal some punch lines from them.”
Speaking about his future in Ghana’s music industry, he said “we’re not boasting but in the next 5 years, I should be the Musiga President and I’ll be on all big entertainment stages, namely Ghana meets Naija and Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).”
He expressed gratitude to his fans for supporting him since he started and told them to expect more good works from him. He revealed that he’ll be releasing his second album titled Dahin Sheli very soon. His latest song that has the industry buzzing is his 69 track that was released on Sunday, 20th August.
