Multiple VGMA award winner, Ofori Amponsah has stated boldly that Highlife music, the indigenous music of Ghanaians is very much alive, contrary to claims that it’s dead and buried.
The artist, who shocked Ghanaians when he suddenly became a pastor only to make a U-turn years later, asserted that the music genre has taken a different shape in the industry but that does not necessarily mean it’s dead.
Speaking with DJ Advicer on Ayeeko After Drive show on Happy FM, Mr All4Real praised the likes of King Promise, Kidi and Kuame Eugene for adding their bit to sustain the genre, although he admitted what they doing now is slightly different.
Highlife is not dead, new artistes like Kuami Eugene, King Promise and others are doing highlife and they are doing it in a new style but its highlife.
The music players may change from time to time but highlife remains the basis of every beat behind hit songs.
