Amerado – A Red Letter To Medikal (2023)

Ghanaian rap music has been enjoying a lot of attention in recent years, thanks to the emergence of a new generation of talented artists. Amongst them is Amerado, an up-and-coming rapper who has been making waves in the Ghanaian music industry with his unique style of rap.

Amerado, whose real name is Derrick Sarfo Kantanka, was born on the 6th of January, 1994. He grew up in Kumasi, the capital city of the Ashanti Region in Ghana. His love for music began at a very young age, and he started writing his own rap lyrics when he was just in junior high school.

Amerado’s breakthrough came in 2018 when he released his debut single, “I Am”, which received a lot of positive reviews and airplay on radio stations in Ghana. He followed up with other successful tracks like “Juju”, “At My Back”, and “Twa So” which established him as one of the most promising rappers in Ghana.

In March 2023, Amerado released a controversial track titled “A Red Letter To Medikal“. The song was  directed at Medikal, a popular Ghanaian rapper.

The track, which has since gone viral, features Amerado rapping over a catchy beat produced by IzJoe Beatz. He delivers his lyrics with an aggressive tone, calling out Medikal for his alleged hypocrisy and fake lifestyle. The track also contains references to Medikal’s girlfriend, actress Fella Makafui, and other popular figures in the Ghanaian entertainment industry.

The release of “A Red Letter To Medikal” caused a stir on social media, with many music fans and industry insiders taking sides in the feud between Amerado and Medikal. While some praised Amerado for his boldness and lyrical prowess, others criticized him for resorting to a diss track instead of settling the issue in private.

Despite the controversy surrounding the track, “A Red Letter To Medikal” has been a major success for Amerado. It has been streamed millions of times on digital platforms, and the video has also received a lot of views on YouTube. The track has helped to solidify Amerado’s position in the Ghanaian music industry and has brought him a lot of new fans.

In an interview with JoyNews, Amerado explained that the track was not meant to be a personal attack on Medikal but was rather a response to the negative comments he had made about him. He also revealed that he had reached out to Medikal privately to resolve the issue but had not received a response.

Amerado’s decision to release “A Red Letter To Medikal” has sparked a wider conversation about the role of diss tracks in the Ghanaian music industry. Some argue that diss tracks are a legitimate form of artistic expression and can help to create healthy competition and push artists to improve their skills. Others, however, believe that diss tracks are unnecessary and can lead to unnecessary feuds and conflicts in the industry.

Despite the debate, it is clear that “A Red Letter To Medikal” has helped to raise Amerado’s profile and has put him in the spotlight in the Ghanaian music industry. His unique style of rap, which blends traditional Ghanaian music with modern hip hop, has won him a lot of fans both in Ghana and abroad.

In conclusion, Amerado’s “A Red Letter To Medikal” is a prime example of the power of music to provoke emotions and start conversations. While it may have caused controversy, it has also helped to showcase Amerado’s talent as a rapper and has brought him a lot of new fans.
