Although he had registered his name with other hit tracks like Democracy and Mmaa kuo, his delivery and authority on the Kasiebo song catapulted him to higher pedestal, especially when the song came across as “diss” song to Okyeame Kwame the Rap Dacta. Any discussion that seeks to review who is having a hit song in the system has never been done without a mention of Guru`s name in it. As artistes struggle to make hits in the industry to facilitate them enjoy the gigs and the shows that assure an artiste’s survival and relevance, Guru seems to have the secret of making hits. He has never been missing in action when it comes to providing hit songs.
