Legendary Highlife musician, producer and song composer, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley has described musician Kofi Kinaata as the only one who is currently preserving the indigenous Highlife music in his song.
Speaking an interview on Joy Prime TV monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Mr. Ambuley observed that other big artists like Shatta Wale and Stonbwoy have no Ghanaian identity as far as music is concerned.
“If you take Kinaata, when he sings you could see that there is kind of locality in there and when he is rapping to you can see the locality”, Ambuley said in his interview with Joy Prime monitored by MyNewsGH.com.
He indicated that though Kofi Kinaata is doing well, he said he still has to work hard on his music to make his identity clear in his arts.
Kofi Kinaata undoubtedly is one of the young Ghanaian song writers noted for producing quality music with good lyrical content.
His songs, “Susuka” and ‘Things Fall Apart” have all been rated by music critics as one of the bests best all music imbedded with good lyrics and well composed.
