There’s been a lot of talk about where Ghana stands when it comes to music. Which genre do we really own? With the latest influence of foreign genres in our music, the time has come to celebrate our own. I believe Hiplife is one of the genres that’s truly Ghanaian hence the reason to start this initiative.
Many have argued on how the music of today has been “diluted” in terms of content. “We hardly find good messages in songs nowadays”
Bringing Hiplife back is not an initiative to look down on what the new crop of musicians are doing but an initiative to re-emphasize the importance of good lyrical content in music.
The team has decided to go back and create renditions of the songs of yesterday which I believe is what our brothers in Nigeria are doing today. E.g Burnaboy’s “Ye” was taken from (Fela’s “Sorrow, Tears & Blood”)
There are a lot of great songs that can be reproduced to engage the new audience.
Meda Ho Mawo is the first of many to come in the quest of bringing hiplife back. Enjoy this song by the first artiste on our list, Agya Bomofour Thunder
