Ghanaian rapper YPee speaks out against favoritism in the music industry
Ghanaian rapper Andy Agyemang, known by his stage name as YPee, says favoritism in the music industry has hindered the progress of some artists despite their talent.

YPee, who won Best Rapper at the 2021 Ashanti Music Awards, said he worked hard releasing good songs but felt his efforts were not being recognized.
“For me, I feel like I don’t get a lot of attention no matter how hard I try. For example, from 2020, I had more features than anyone in the music industry and most of the songs were hits, but the media is not talking about it,” he said. at GNA Entertainment.
He urged the media and music lovers to fight over the positives of rather unconstructive criticism from artists who fail to promote their craft.
Asked about the motive behind his new album “PeeVolution,” YPee said, “The album represents the new revolution in the music industry, especially with the rise of ‘Kumerican’ music that started in 2020. .
“I started this project about four or five years ago and I urge fans to stream the album.”
YPee’s 12-track album features artists like Amerado, Kweku Flick, Bisa Kdei, Ras Kuuku, Kofi Jamar, among others.
