New Crop Of Musicians Are Not Authentic But Copy Styles From Other Countries - Gyadu-Blay Ambolley Gyadu-Blay Ambolley

Highlife and hiplife are genres that Ghanaians are rightly quite proud of, but they seem to be losing ground as more new artistes move to ‘hiphop’ or dancehall.

And this shift is not about artists just coming out with more of these songs, but more about the final product not sounding too ‘Ghanaian’.

One man concerned about this shift is veteran Gyadu-Blay Ambolley, who feels that originality is vanishing from the game, to be replaced by blind copying. Especially in fields like dancehall, where everything seems to be going the Jamaican route.

“Every country has music that it offers, we have so much to offer in this country in connection with; but the young ones that have come I think they have a problem because they are not being original and they are doing too much of a copy and it’s bothering me,” he told KMJ on Hitz FM.

And you cannot deny that trend has taken over these days. It’s not just in showbiz, but in movies as well, where everyone is competing to see who can come up with the fakest London accent. The Nigerians embrace their identity, and do so much better for it.
