‘One Corner’ hitmaker Patapaa Amisty has carved a niche for himself in the Ghana music industry though many have for some years predicted doom for his music career saying he wouldn’t last in the music sphere because he lacked better lyrics to keep up space,
The ‘Scopatumana’ crooner has recounted his struggles to fame admitting that rising to fame was very hard and a time thought of giving up.
Patapaa shot to fame with his popular ‘One Corner’ song and featured on a couple of hit songs with the notable one been ‘Akwaaba’ by Guilty Beatz.
His latest to put him in the limelight was the ‘Daavi Neba’ song by Kawoula Biov which he got featured on.
The rap by Patapaa consisted of the word ‘Scopatumana’ which spawned a challenge on social media with people trying to rap the lines.
This trend which was termed as the Skopatumana Challenge. Skopatumana is one of the words Patapaa is heard using in his verse on the song.
Speaking on Adom FM’s Drive Time show, Ofie Kwanso, with Jerry Justice on Wednesday, August 8, 2019, the originator of the word ‘sco pa tu mana’ (variant spelling- Skopatumana) which has found its way into two digital dictionaries said no amount of negative words can bury his music career except God.
According to him, some people think he shot to fame easily, but he was an underground musician for almost 16 years stating that it was God who gave him the ‘One Corner’ song which eventually cemented his career.
Patapaa is set to launch his debut album at the Swedru Sports Stadium on August 16, 2019 during the Swedru Akwambo festival week.
