One-time SarkCess Music signee and Highlife artiste Kwabena Akwaboah Jnr, whose stage name is Akwaboah Jnr, has disclosed in a discussion how his visually impaired veteran musician father Kwadwo Akwaboah seeks to see him perform live on stage one day.
Revealing this to Akoma FM’s Tony Best on Kwantenpon Drive on Thursday, June 24, the gifted musician stated that despite the fact that he doesn’t think too much about the fact that his once active and vibrant father has lost his sight, sometimes he desires that his father recover his sight to see him perform his songs on stage.
“Once in a while, it gets to me that my father can’t see and it pains. He has even said that his greatest wish is to see me perform my songs on stage.
“I keep saying that if my father had enough strength to see me do what I do, I would equally be excited but what can I do?” he asked.
As reported by Akwaboah, even though his father is not able to see, his other senses are actively working, and that he produced their much-talked-about songs, Awerekyekyere and Face-to-Face.
Responding to why he has never obtained an award for Highlife Artiste of the Year despite his creative way of writing songs, the musician stated that his greatest joy is to see the hundreds and thousands of people who patronize his shows.
That alone, he says, is sufficient award for his works even though he desires to win all 3 nominations he has on this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs).
Akwaboah is presently promoting his latest single ‘Ensesa’ off his 2nd Official Album, LightHouse.
