Borax claims that Samini & Shatta Wale are mere mice


Dancehall and reggae artiste Nathaniel Larbie, popularly known as Borax, after a four-year hiatus from the music scene says he is back and that his absence has turned some musicians into super stars.


The controversial musician, known for the smash hit single 'Asee Ho' which featured Daddy Lumba, believes that dancehall artiste, Samini and Shatta Wale (Bandana) are currently making waves in Ghana because of his absence.

Speaking in an interview on Airtel Entertainment News on Drive Time on Joy FM, Borax, now known as Big Borax, said "It is not even prudent to talk about these little boys - Samini and Shatta Wale - because they've gotten it twisted. They don't know the essence of music - what music does to society; the impact music has on society."

"I am the emperor," he stressed and added that, he was running the industry till he took some time off to study "so when the cat was away" and mouse was able to come out and play. If the cat is there, the mouse cannot play, Borax added.

Asked if he was to choose between Samini and Shatta Wale, he said he won't choose any because none of them stands out: "They just make noise because the emperor was away."

He therefore said if Ghanaians doubt his emperorship, "mount up a platform for us and let us do it," he asked and stressed that Samini and Shatta Wale know his credibility and ability and when they see him, "they bow".

Giving his impressions about the music industry today, Big Borax noted that, "there has been a vast improvement in terms of the music industry itself. Now the government is actually allocating funds to support the music industry. Gone were the days when entertainment was relegated to the background but it's now part of the government's agenda."

Big Borax refuted speculations that he took a hiatus because he was scared of the increasing competition in the music industry. According to him, he "decided to take time off the music scene and go back to school...and during vacation I also travelled outside to visit my family,"

He now holds a degree in Marketing from the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA).

The 'Tene Wo Nsa' hit singer, who has been in the industry since 1999, apologized to his fans who he believed have been musically starved due to his absence.

To satisfy them, he is out with a new tune, 'Take Off You Pant', a song he stressed has no sexual connotation.

Fans and Ghanaians, Borax added, should expect two albums from him soon. "Trying to put logistics together and he "will come like a thief in the night," he said.
