Sarkodie is good, but I like Castro better – Yaw Preko
Ex-Black Stars international, Yaw Preko, has named missing hiplife artiste Theophilus Tagoe, aka Castro, as a musician he can bank on.
Commenting on his love for Castro’s music, the legend tagged present day musicians as “rushing” and inaudible.
“I think I can say Castro, wherever he is. I have listened to a lot of Castro’s music and they are all pleasing to the ear; you know he is not rushing, you can hear each word and most of the words, even though it is not gospel, you can hear, feel some advice in it…Sarkodie some of his lyrics are also good but I like Castro”, Yaw Preko, who is also Assistant Coach of the national under twenty (U-20) team, said.
Speaking on Hitz FM’s ‘Entertainment this Week’ hosted by Mzgee, Yaw Preko gave an account of how hiplife greatly influenced his career as a sportsman in Europe.
“When we were in Europe, it was difficult to get [CDs], or go online to listen to music; you know back in the 90’s technology was not that huge in Ghana but at certain times you are able to get some [hiplife] CDs. When you come on holidays, you know, we tune on the radio and listen to them”, the ex-Footballer recounted.
He added: “When you are camping in Europe it is kind of boring if you don’t like listening to the European music or the music from where you are playing. You want to listen to what is going on at home and for [hiplife artistes] to come up with lyrics in our language was very fun.”
On record to have played 68 international matches for the Ghana national team, the Assistant Coach of the Under Twenty team (U-20), who in 1998 as a young footballer spent 4,000 Euros on a pair of earrings in Holland says he has no regrets for his lavish lifestyle in his younger years.
He indicated that he may alter his life slightly should he get a chance to relive those days again.
“I was young wild and should I say stupid” he said.
The ex- footballer also named Christian Atsu as his favourite footballer in the senior national team, emphasizing that Atsu’s style of play is reminiscent of his own days.
