Highlife is not dead; neither is it dying, according to Kwasi Kyei Darkwah (the finest).
“Why do people say highlife is dead? It’s like saying big laptops are dead. Bigger laptops are giving way to tablets and smart phones. The same applies to highlife; most of the young artistes are taking up highlife and making awesome hits. R2Bees, Asem and Okyeame Kwame are doing fantastic with their highlife fusions. Highlife is not dead!” he stressed.
According to him, highlife can gain the much needed premium if artistes make a conscious effort to collaborate with other experienced industry players to produce good content.
“Rex Omar has lots of songs sitting idle on the shelves. He has written so many songs and no one is taking advantage. There are other song writers who have some fantastic compositions waiting to be produced,” he added.
