Guest Feature Blog : The End Of An Era In The Ghanaian Music Industry

In the early 80’s to the 90’s I grew up listening to a certain brand and genre of music in Ghana and around the rest of Africa, and you realize the Originality ,Style and authenticity of the music from various Musicians. 

I will narrow my thoughts to just Ghana considering the angle I am taking and not talk about African music in general.

Music from our own were the likes of Nana Kwame Ampadu, J A Adofo, Dr Paa Bobo, Agyaaku, AB Crentsil, George Darko, Lee Dodou, Pozo Hayes, Tagoe Sisters, Amakye Dede, Ampofo Adjei, Jewel Ackah, Pat Thomas, Smart Nkansah, George Jaraah, Rex Omar, Nat Brew (Amandzeba), Akosua Agyapong, Rev Yawson, Helena Rabbles, Paapa Yankson, Joe Taylor, Mac Tontoh, Osisbisa, Stella Dugan, Thomas K Frimpong, Alex Kunadu, Adomaku Nyamekye, Paa Solo, Sibo Brothers, Nana Acheampong, Daddy Lumba, Felix Owusu, Samuel Owusu, Gyadu Blay Ambulley, Diana Akinwumi, Asaabea Cropper,Onipanua,Kojo Antwi, CK Man,Felix Bell, KK Kabobo, Randy Nunoo, Lady Talata just to mention a few, were the pillars of the Highlife brand music throughout the country and beyond with Bands to compliment it.

The originality of these musicians and their distinct voices set them apart from the rest. Song writing and serving under senior musicians was the school for young musicians who wanted to learn the trade and master it. Many came but they still survive their craft and made it work.
