Okyeame Kwame has admitted that he has failed the next generation when it comes to Hiplife.

He was disappointed that enough was not done to uphold the Hiplife genre in Ghana.

The popular Ghanaian rapper expressed his disappointment in an interview on Starr Chat with Bola Ray.

“I think that for every genre to be able to stay alive, there must be a group of young people who are interested in carrying the torch to the next young generation and for hiplife we don’t have that,” he said.

“People like myself have failed the young generation completely, because when I took on the mantle of hiplife in 1996, the last thing I knew was anthropology, sociology or marketing. I didn’t know I was supposed to carry this thing upfront and give it to someone else,” the Rap Doctor added.

He thinks the Western world has done well to ensure the success of Hiplife when compared to Ghana.

“This thing we’re doing, this is not how it’s done. Big Daddy Kane will carry to a point and give it to Jay Z, Jay Z will give it to another person, another person will give it to Kanye, that is how we keep it moving,” Okyeame Kwame stated.
