Contemporary Highlife musician, Kwabena Kwabena, believes that highlife as a Ghanaian genre, is enjoyed by the young and the old.
The award-winning singer was sharing his success story with Cable News Network (CNN), an American basic cable and satellite television news channel owned by the Turner Broadcasting System, a division of Time Warner.
Dubbed ‘Inside Africa’, which is a documented programme on CNN, highlights the true diversity of the African continent as seen through the prism of different cultures, religions and the mediums of art, music, travel, and literature.
It’s actually not easy for a Ghanaian artiste to be featured on such a magnificent platform but Kwabena Kwabena has proved ever since he splinted onto the Ghanaian music scene to be an unfeigned force to reckon with.
In the documentary, CNN described Kwabena Kwabena as a Ghanaian artiste working hard to keep his dream alive and the future of Hi-life music.
Revealing the motive why he is doing Hi-life music, the ‘Adansie’ hit-maker told CNN that “I saw Hi-life to be something which is enjoyed by both the young and the old…so I saw Hi-life to be our way of life and If I wanted to be myself, be a Ghanaian then I wouldn’t do anything than Hi-Life.”
Kwabena, delineated extensively that, “HI-life is revolving and when it’s my time am going to also revolve it.”
