We will revive Azonto slowly- E.L to naysayers



Award-winning rapper, E.L has likened people who claim ‘azonto’ cannot be revived to rejecting one’s own child.

According to the “Efa woho ben” hitmaker, the ‘azonto’ genre will be revived slowly.

A couple of weeks ago, decorated rapper, Sarkodie threw a challenge to musicians in Ghana to help receive the ‘azonto’ genre which did well internationally a couple of years ago.

E.L joined the train and released ‘Revival’ with Sarkodie in hopes to revive the genre.

The move was however criticised heavily by some industry people who believe strongly that the ‘azonto’ genre is dead and gone.

However, speaking in an interview with Amansan Krakye on GBC Radio Central in Cape Coast, E.L reaffirmed that the genre could be revived with support from the people.

“Saying that azonto which belongs to Ghana is dead and cannot be revived is like rejecting your own child and those people making such claims, God will surely deal with them.

“By God’s grace my azonto songs are doing well and I heard people are loving the vibes and dancing to the azonto movement.

“We’re reviving it gradually because I have been hearing more people releasing azonto songs and more notifications of azonto enthusiasts both here and abroad.

“So the thing is not a one day event because when you’re doing a good thing it takes a while and we pray Ghanaians will continue to embrace our efforts in trying to revive azonto,” he added.
