Ghanaian high life artiste Dada Hafco born Terry Asare Boamah on Peace 104.3 fm’s Drive time with Micky Darling last Friday expressed his worry over the current genre of Ghanaian music. He mentioned that Ghanaian music has no identity.
According to Dada Hafco, Reggae music has been reggae since 1920 and we still call it reggae so why is the story different when it comes to High life. Ghanaian music has no identity.
”When a Nigerian or South African song is playing, you can easily tell where it is coming from, Unlike Ghanaian music. It will be difficult for a foreigner who doesn’t understand our language to identify our music.”- he said.
Dada Hafco has been nominated in the Eastern Music awards and he is currently promoting his new single “Ye be wu nti”.
He concluded by saying ‘’let’s find a new name for what the current crop of artistes are doing and stop calling it high life’’.
Dada Hafco who was a member of a hip-life group called ‘Mframa’ which made hit songs like ‘Filifil’ and others is now a solo artist with a new single tittled ‘Bedianko’ which features Paa Kwasi formally of Double fame.
