Ghanaian highlife musician Akwaboah has bemoaned some shortfalls in the Ghanaian music industry.
Speaking to Kwame Dadzie on Citi FM’s ‘Celebrity Radar’, he said that he is worried about how people treat music in this country.
To his best knowledge and experience in the game, a lot of the songs produced in Ghana are empty.
“I am not a radio person or television person but once in a while, I love to listen to what’s happening around. And then you know what to do when writing songs and stuff. And there is one thing that I have realised. Most of the songs that we are doing now are hollow. They are very empty. They are very empty in the sense that the lyrics are not strong enough,” he said.
He also noted that sex-laden songs have dominated the space at the expense of songs that talk about real-life stories that have a positive influence on people’s lives.
“Some of them are all about s3.kx. I mean without it, it feels like there is no music in Ghana. I mean what our forefathers left us with was not just about sex and everything. They were talking about realities in life. When you are sad, there are songs to listen to, when you are happy there are songs to listen to. If they wanted to talk about sex and everything, they had a way to go about it. But now it’s just raw. People talk about it anyhow,” he added.
