Since the emergence of Dancehall in Ghana spearheaded by Shatta Wale, it has been able to silence most genres arguably Highlife.
However, Bisa Kdei thinks otherwise! He has confidently asserted that Highlife music will still stand tall even though music lovers in recent times are yearning for the so called ‘foreign’ Dancehall music.
The truth is, Bisa Kdei failed to mention Dancehall lords like Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy while speaking to the issue, however, one can deduce he was indirectly referring it to them since they are making the most noise about the genre.
“From my perspective, Highlife has taken me to a lot of places and it will surprise you. I have always stood by it that we must stop saying Highlife is dying. Highlife is not faring well and all that.
“Highlife is what belongs to us, hence if we have to sell something we have to sell Ghanaian music instead of saying Dancehall is taking over and those kinds of words”. He told Buju Banton in an interview on Kumasi based Sika FM.
Bisa Kdei continued that, “when you travel outside the country, all what they want to listen is our Highlife and nothing else”.
