Ghanaian born Reggae/Dancehall and Afrobeats Crooner born as Theophilus Nii Arday, popularly known as Epixode has offered a potential solution for the global promotion of Ghanaian music.

In a recent interview on Joy Prime’s ‘Prime Morning’, the ‘Atia’ singer said the international acts sample a few of Ghanaian songs sometimes but they get away with it because Ghana has no appropriate record of songs since the beginning of time.

“They sample our songs every time. Like recently I heard a chronic on a Rock Stone’s rhythm, and I was like, Really? But we don’t have room to keep these catalogs to also help the next generation know that this is what makes our sound… well, we’re getting there if we document it well,” he said.

Episode’s highlife rendition of “Atia” with Kwabena Kwabena acquired him a nomination in the 24th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Award’s highlife song of the year category, even though he is a dancehall act, his decision to delve into highlife, according him believed the highlife sound is the best sound for the country in the future.

“I look at the longevity of my craft and who I want to be, and I’ve come to the realization that it will get to a time when highlife will rule. It’s the sound of the future.
“So if some melodies can’t go into reggae or dancehall, even if you watched the international market in Jamaica, they’re not doing straight dancehall; they’re even now tapping into the afro sound. We that we have it here, why don’t we do it more?” he added.
