Veteran Ghanaian Highlife musician, Amandzeba Nat Brew, has stated that people do not have to celebrate others before they know that they are doing well.

Talking about the impact that his music has made, Amandzeba said he feels celebrated when people tell him they love his music.

“People don’t necessarily have to celebrate you to know that you are doing well. I have had this conviction that I am celebrated when people tell me they love my music. I know I have done great songs and if people praise me for it, it is enough celebration.

“This is a country where Dr Kwame Nkrumah was overthrown after all he did for Ghana. Anything good that comes from this country will not be celebrated well so I take consolations from the fact that I am not doing music to be celebrated.

“So don’t feel bad as a musician that Ghana does not celebrate you. When you believe in yourself and the product you have, people will love you for it,” he told Graphic Showbiz.

According to him, it is always in his mind to project Africa first when he is at the studio.

“Whenever I am writing a song, it is about telling the African story and that makes the song rich and authentic. If I am even writing a love song, I want to use local names like Ama, Akosua and not use an English name. I have songs like Dede, Ama and I am proud of such African names. Great songs are timeless and I am delighted to know that the youth still love Highlife music,” he stated.

Describing himself as the link between the dead and the living and between the ancient and the modern, Amandzeba added: “I call myself this because I play ancient songs but give it a modern grove.”
