As reported by the celebrated Ghanaian music master, Kojo Antwi, his music does not fall into the highlife genre.
He stated he makes the music of the African well known Music genre, also called Afropop. Mr Music Man stated, “Some people claim l play reggae, highlife, among others. But l play Afropop.
I am a musician, and l play all categories of genres. Afropop comprises so many rhythms.” Talking to Christian Agyei Frempong on Anigye Mere on Onua Fm, Kojo Antwi stated that it was unfortunate no Ghanaian musician had a feature all through World Music Day on June 21.
This day pointed up the 100 greatest African Songs of all time without any Ghanaian song. The present group of musicians in Ghana are copying Nigerians while the Nigerians had stolen the Afropop from Ghana. Highlife, in my view, is dynamic.
And presently, the modern musicians in Ghana can’t play like the old highlife musicians due to the fact the old instruments had given way to new technology.
But they should try as much as possible to keep the Ghanaian identity.
