During the interview, a caller who identified himself as Paul threatened Amerado on the show with death. The caller threatened to stab and kill Amerado for using the popular cliche “I am the best rapper”. The caller who lost his cool over the comment made by Amerado called in the show and questioned why the artist would compare himself to the likes of Eno Barony, Teephlow, and another top artist in Kumasi.
The caller accused the rapper of ‘developing wings’ after his ‘Yeete Nsem’ television show gained prominence nationwide.
“Tell Amerado that he is just a child. He is claiming to be the best rapper yet the likes of Eno Barony, Teephlow, and so on started this game before him. If he doesn’t take care we’ll gang up and beat him. Anytime he steps into Kumasi, he won’t like what will happen to him. Because of his Yeete Nsem program, he thinks he has seen it all. We’ll stab him if he steps foot in Kumasi”.
