Ghanaian songwriter and Dagomba singer, Fatau Keita has described as senseless, the proliferation of Jamaican dancehall music over Ghana’s authentic highlife.
According to the singer, Ghanaians must desist from supporting artistes who produce and promote the popular Jamaican genre across the country.
Speaking on an Accra-based Adom FM, Fatau Keita disclosed that, deliberate efforts must be made to belittle the promotion of dancehall music on radio stations since it has no relevance on Ghanaian culture.
The young artiste who seems not happy about the Ghanaian music industry stated that, Ghanaians must rise up to embrace highlife music instead of dancehall.
“The dancehall artistes don’t make sense. I will urge Ghanaians to minimize the airplay of dancehall music, regardless, we need to portray ourselves and sell our music abroad”, Keita insisted.
The singer in his submission impressed upon radio stations across the country to reduce airplay of dancehall music, regardless of the artiste involved, to pave way for Ghana’s highlife music.
Fatau Keita explained that, “In the world we know how violent they are and how they fight with each other. And these are the people the youth are looking up to".
The Dagomba singer in his ambitious mission maintained that, though he is aware his comments could court troubles but he is not worried about speaking against something which is quite obvious.
