Ghanaian highlife artist, Bisa Kdei
The living legend of highlife, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley admired musician, Bisa Kdei by saying that he is an authentic highlife musician among his peers who are also doing the same genre of music.
According to him, despite the fact that some young artistes like Kwame Eugene, Kwabena Kwabena among others are doing highlife music, Bisa Kdei stands tall.
He told Natalia Andoh that: “Some [young artistes] are doing what they call highlife, but when it comes to highlife, Bisa Kdei is the one I can point a finger at and say he is on the right [path].
The multiple award winning musician noted that some of the young artistes mostly fail to demonstrate their culture and heritage whenever they get the opportunity to perform on international platforms.
‘Some of these young artistes are doing well, but the music that they put [out there], the lyrics or rap, they rely more on foreign influence but we have a heritage, we’re a people that our forefathers have left us with some kind of music. Every country has its form of music, you go to America they play jazz, rap music, when you go to India they play Indian music, when you go to South America they play salsa music so that is the form of identification.’
