Beefing in the Ghanaian music industry has now become the order of the day, with many Ghanaian artiste beefing each other for various reasons. For those of you who don’t catch the meaning of the ‘Beef’ word, it’s just another term for grudge. Since the inception of hiplife, we have had a couple of ‘beefs’ from veteran artiste like Chicago vrs Ex doe, Obrafour vs Lord kenya, Obrafour vs Okyeame Kwame. The ‘beef’ between self acclaimed dancehall king, Shatta Wale and Samini has been the longest yet popular beef in recent times. Some notable beef in the music industry recently is Sarkodie vs Manifest and Yaa Pono vs Shatta Wale which is still fresh.
Dancehall artist Jupitar de General is apparently interested in the publicity artist enjoy when beefing so he wants to pick on someone to beef with. According to him, Stonebwoy is just not happy Mark Okraku Mantey has endorsed him as the original Ghanaian Dance Hall Artist so he decided to throw a Jab at him. Jupitar claims Stonebwoy’s ‘Migrane’ song was directed to him.
“For the past days I’ve had this endorsement from one of the veterans in Ghana music … so obviously the rest of them might not find it pleasant … so they will definitely prove their points. Stonebwoy has been releasing this commercial tune and all of a sudden mentioned my name … he could have mentioned any other planet but then he intentionally mentioned Jupiter.”
Excerpt of the song’s lyrics reads that
“I have a Golden Heart
Chat dem A Chat 24Parrot
If them Say A Beef Send Me Some Carrot
I Man A lion No Move Like A Rat
Earth Lock , No Space Deh Ah Jupiter
For All The Man Way A Move Like Lucifer
And I’m in the News Everyday Like Lupita
Me No Weh Yuh A Hate Me For“
Stonebwoy’s manager has come out to state that the artiste was referring to Planet Jupiter. When you go through the lyrics, you would know clearly that stonebwoy was referring to the Planet Jupiter. That particular line in the lyrics explains as if the earth is locked and there is no space, Jupiter (which is a bigger planet) is available. Now, how can this be a jab? The funny thing is, other artist get their names mentioned in songs and the fact that a certain ‘Jupiter’ was mentioned in stonebwoy’s song does not make it a jab.
Ok, so now let’s just assume that it was indeed Jupitar, the artiste’s name that was mentioned. The would translate as if the earth is locked and there is no space for him (Stonebwoy), He (Jupitar) would hold him down.
He continued to tell Berla Mundi that just like how Stonebwoy has said he careless how anybody interprets his Migraine song in the same fate he careless how people interpret his “War” song too, which is clearly diss back song to Stonebwoy which he just released.
From where i stand, I clearly see Jupitar seeking attention and forcing to grab a beef with Stonebwoy
