5 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULDN’T WATCH KOBINA ANSAH’S TRIBELESS!

From the days of his seasonal stage play, This Family Is Not For Sale, playwright and producer, Kobina Ansah, has flaunted his brilliance when it comes to having good, quality fun on stage.

His unique style of writing has carved a niche for him in the theatre industry. No two ways about that.

However, his new brainchild, Tribeless, showing this September at the Efua Sutherland Drama Studio on University of Ghana campus may not be one stage play you may really want to see. You may have been wowed by his I Want To Sue God! but trust me, this may not be one of his usual side-splitting pieces.

Call me a hater but I would not mince words especially when I would have to call a spade what it is. You really want to know why you shouldn’t watch Tribeless? This is it!

HOW NEW GENERATION DJS ARE KILLING OUR CAREERS – SINGER REVEALS

Give an old hammer to a carpenter and imagine the house that can be built. Give it to a toddler and, well……

This was the import of an outcry by renowned Ghanaian contemporary Highlife singer Kwesi Pee as he heavily criticized the new crop of DJs (and media practitioners) for the steady decline of our customary music genre.

He bemoaned the crisis the classical Highlife genre is currently facing during an interview with Ricky Rick on Drive Entertainment on Empire 102.7Fm; specifically lashing out at the crop of new generation DJs.

“There are no more matured and popular DJs/Presenters who represent the Highlife music genre. Rather, there are too many young DJs in the industry at the moment who don’t enjoy classical/matured music. They rather prefer to play songs that appeal to their generation, songs for the bosschics and slay queens, songs for twerking, snap-chat and what not”.
