Samini, 38, told Asaase Radio on Thursday, September 10, that his journey can be compared to none in his fraternity, even Shatta Wale.

He was speaking about a lyrical battle which has been arranged between his protégé Stonebwoy and controversial dancehall star and record producer Shatta Wale when he made this statement.

According to the “My Own” hitmaker, he started his music journey some eighteen years ago and still active in the game.

He described his 18-year journey in the show business industry as ‘great’, adding that he can boldly boast about his longevity.

“I've been doing music for so long, since my days as a teenager right from 18 years,” he told Assase Radio.

“The journey has been great, I'm currently 38 years so I can boldly say I'm the longest recording reggae/dancehall artiste in Ghana,” Samini added.

The High Grade Family record label owner made his way through the music industry in the late 90s. He has collaborated with top local and international artistes, including Wizkid and Popcaan.

He also has a bunch of prestigious local and international award nominations and wins. He has won MOBO Awards, The Headies, Channel O Music Video Awards and MTV Africa Music Awards.
