Renowned Ghanaian actor and broadcaster, Mikki Osei-Berko, has called on Ghanaians to protect highlife music.
Citing the importance of highlife music, he wondered why Ghanaians are not protecting it.
During a discussion with Joy FM’s Kwame Dadzie, Mikki stated that highlife music is part of Ghana’s culture and it should not be left to die.
Using Jamaica and reggae as an example, the veteran actor stressed the need for highlife music to be protected.
“There is no culture without music and Ghana we have been so blessed with our kind of genre of music. Are we letting it die? Or are we letting people re-christen it and call it Afrobeats and lose it just like that?
“I don’t think Jamaica will do that to reggae music. Ghana should stand firm with highlife music, improve it, and grow it,” said Mikki Osei-Berko.
