Some Highlife Music Icons We Can’t Forget

Highlife music is undoubtedly one of the most loved genres in Ghana. It is amazing how Ghanaians respond to highlife music; the lyrical content, the unique beats and the rhythm are just worthy of the cozy dance steps that people usually accompany such music with. It is however with no known doubt that highlife music is indeed life. These musicians often express real life experiences, folktales and even animal kingdom stories. It is sad that this genre seems to be gradually fading out but there’s still hope. Aside all these, we definitely cannot talk about highlife music without appreciating the musicians, both dead and alive, who contribute to such an unforgettable genre of music.
