Celebrated Ghanaian highlife musician and guitarist, George Kwabena Adu, known by the stage name, Kwabena Kwabena, has recently disclosed that until the whole country recognizes highlife music, he will continue to remain unfulfilled because the genre has not reached its full potential.

In an interview with Keely-Jade Brewer on Asaase Radio’s Between Hours show, the ‘Adult Music’ crooner stated that, “My dream is not yet fulfilled, but I’ll say when the whole of Ghana recognises highlife music as our baby, that’s when I’ll be fulfilled.”

The multiple award-winning highlife legend further asserted that all genres of music in the country have elements of highlife sounds in them. He explained by saying, “lately, I have been listening to the playlists on the various platforms, especially with Apple Music. I was listening to Ghana Bounce, and from track one to the last track, I didn’t find any music that didn’t have 99% of highlife in it.”

He continued; “So, I ask myself, ‘why is it that we are playing the rhythm and we can’t be bold enough to actually tell the whole world that this is highlife music?’”

Kwabena Kwabena however,  expressed his  joy about the introduction of drill music and highlife to the Grammy Awards.“God being so good, the Grammys are recognising two genres of music that originate from Ghana. Why don’t we concentrate on these two genres of music and perfect it,” he noted.
