Veteran Ghanaian musician, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley has expressed his concerns about how the new generation of musicians in Ghana produces their songs.
He stated that the availability of fruity loops and other computer software has made it easy for these musicians to churn out ‘sharp sharp’ music.
Mr Ambolley lamented that their songs may not stand the test of time due to how they compose it.
“Today’s music has been a sharp sharp style of music because the younger ones just get a computer and work on fruity loops to create rhythms. Some of the rappers even go to the studio, the engineer plays different beats and then they just choose one that they like.
“Our time, it wasn’t like that. Our time, it’s not somebody who’s going to create it for you. You create it because we learnt what is called music; the rudiments of music, the cadences of music and all that. The younger ones these days don’t know about the rudiments and the cadences of it so sharp things also die out sharp sharp,” he said in an interview with Foster Romanus on eTV Ghana’s Late Nite Celebrity Show.
