Popular Ghanaian actor and broadcaster, Mikki Osei-Berko, has urged Ghanaians to protect highlife music.
He stated in a discussion with Joy FM’s Kwame Dadzie that highlife music is part of Ghana’s culture.
In this vein, he called on Ghanaians to protect it at all costs and it should not be left to die.
Citing Jamaica and reggae as an example, Mikki, also known as Master Richard, emphasized 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,” Mikki Osei-Berko stated.
