Some veteran Highlife musicians hold the perception that they have been sidelined in the Ghana music industry by some industry players, according to Highlife artiste, Kwaisey Pee.
In a conversation with Father Innocent on Original 91.9FM on Tuesday, April 27, 2021, the ‘Mehia Odo’ crooner said some radio presenters and young Ghanaian musicians give veterans the impression their reign is over and sidelined.
“Some of us sometimes, we do not have the encouragement to continue releasing Highlife songs this is because radio presenters and young musicians regard us as expired musicians,” he said on Original Midmorning.
The singer with about two decades of experience in the Ghanaian music industry noted that such treatment meted out to veteran Highlife musicians strongly discourages them from pursuing the indigenous music of the land.
“We have good songs we find it difficult to release because we feel sidelined, so, we do not get encouragement to continue producing Highlife songs,” he added.
