Veteran highlife musician, first to rap in Ghana, songwriter and a producer, Gyedu-Blay Ambulley has released fire on modern days artiste.
Speaking on GN TV news with Pamela Boateng, he expressed dissatisfaction about how the young artists neglects the older musicians especially when they die.
He stated that, when Ebony Reigns died, we all saw how she was celebrated but when Jewel Ackah and Papa Yankson also passed away, none of them was there.
He also said for Ghana music to progress, we have to go back to our roots.
He said; “When we came, we went to the elders to ask questions for them to teach us. All the music we’re doing now was learnt from our elders.
“They (new crop of musicians) also need to come and do so. If they don’t do so, they will fall apart. All the music they do now is computerized; cut and paste.
“They are doing Dancehall, they’re doing Reggae…NO!! We have a heritage here and it’s called Highlife music. Every country has its music; what we have is Highlife music so we need to develop it for the world to know what we have,’ Gyedu Blay Ambolley said.
