Ghana is one of the few West African countries who are good at making highlife music and we can be ranked among the top countries. However, talking about highlife in Ghana, you can not do away with the names of some legendary highlife artistes whose talents have kept the entertainment industry booming over the years.
There are some legendary highlife artistes who have won the hearts of many Ghanaians. And Nana Ampadu is one of these legendary highlife musicians whose musical lyrics and rhythms have become an interest to all Ghanaians. Today, he made some statements in an interview which really needs to be heard by al Ghanaians especially the youth.
The all time highlife legend during an interview on Oman later today, he revealed that in the olden days, people paid a lot of attention to music and this is because the words in songs strengthened bonds. He revealed that relationships between lovers, friends and even family were strengthened because of words from songs.
But now, this is seen in only a few personalities and this saddens his heart. Some of the youth have still stuck to this culture and have carried on with what they started. But others are allowing the influence of western culture which is definitely going to suppress the interest in the indigenous Ghanaian music some time to come.
He further petitioned that the youth who have currently taken over the music industry should do their best to practice these cultures. He added that they can try their best to make some modernization in their way of singing but should make sure that it gives the required information to the public.
He further ended his statement with praise to some artistes who have kept a good brand and tried their best to stay on the right path even though they are young. And also believes in the fact that highlife will live forever.
