Highlife music is the mother of Afro Beat – Bisa Kdei
Written by Ghana Music Radio on March 28, 2017
Undoubtedly, multiple award winning artiste, Bisa Kdei has been able to take Highlife music to the world.
The ‘Life’ hit maker on Beat FM talked about Highlife music and how tough it was for him to continue from where his older generation left off.
According to Bisa Kdei, he grew up in an environment where Highlife music was the only language him and his family could relate to.
Falling in love with the genre, Bisa Kdei pledged to take the genre to a different height since Highlife is the only music of Ghanaian origin.
Comparing Highlife music to Afro Beats, Bisa Kdei said, “Highlife music is the mother of Afro Beat. I just appreciate the fact that Highlife music is getting all this attention. But what most people don’t know is, Afro Beat originated from High Life music. So like I always say, music is a universal language, if well spoken, people can easily translate and relate to it — and thats why I have mixed race dancing, singing and getting motivated and inspired from my song and lyrics – Bisa Kdei stated.
He talked about his latest project called Konnect, which is aimed at connecting him to his fans more than ever.
“I have started this new movement called Konnect, where I connect more with my fans. Recently when I went to the states, I gave a surprise visit to some of my fans at their home, work places, etc. I am giving my fans more of me because they play a huge role in my music success. I respect their support and love and I am giving myself some more time to really KONNECT with them”, Bisa Kdei added.
Bisa Kdei is credited with series of hit songs, including Odo Carpenter, Mansa, Brother Brother, Azonto Ghost, Samina, I Love You, Saa, Atomesu, Madanfo, Baba, Pillow, Jwe, Life, to mention but few.
He just released APAE which is gradually becoming everyone’s favorite.
