“I think I also got introduced to a section of Ghanaians who love rap music. Whenever there’s ‘beefs,’ there’s a higher chance of people hopping on and listening to your music compared to when there are no excessive waves,” the crooner explained

Derrick went on to point out the stark difference in viewership between his regular releases and those dropped amid rap ‘beefs,’ indicating a noticeable spike in engagement during the latter. He sees these confrontations as opportunities for growth, helping him unearth potentials he hadn’t previously recognized

Encouraging his peers to embrace similar challenges, Amerado believes ‘beef’ situations can be beneficial. He argued that these experiences not only boost visibility but also help artistes develop their skills, urging fellow rappers to seize such opportunities as a means to showcase and enhance their talent.
