Brainy Beatz who is one of the sensational music producers and a trainer in Ghana has stated that Ghana2Pac aka Supa is the best person to fight against Tramadol and other hard drugs.

So much has been said about Tramadol abuse in Ghana. The fight against Tramadol, a pain relief drug, according to medical experts, functions like heroin and can cause psychotic problems as well as damage vital organs in the human body has been one of the major recent issues in the country.

According to the award-winning producer, Supa who was once a drug addict and a Ghanaian residing in Nima should be the one to champion the course since he was once an abuser of the drug and has more following now.

Ghanaians Love For Dancehall Is Killing Highlife : Bisa Kdei

Published

Bisa Kdei

Indisputably, Highlife music genre is the heartbeat of Ghana music. Thus, Ghanaians gave birth to the Highlife, therefore, there’s the need for them to put strategic measures in place to protect and develop rapidly the indigenous genre.

So, it’s no surprise that Bisa Kdei, a renowned contemporary Highlife artiste, has expressed worry about the degenerating nature of Ghana’s Highlife. According to Kdei, Ghanaians love for foreign music genres especially Dancehall is a contributing factor to the gradual collapse of Highlife.

“Highlife is struggling as far as Ghanaians continue to give much attention to foreign genres especially Dancehall. We just have to believe in ourselves that Highlife is from us and push higher the indigenous music genre. One thing is that it’s only Highlife that’s putting Ghana out there”, Bisa Kdei said this when he was interviewed by Emcee Bebe, host of Entertainment Xtra on Cape 93.3FM.

Besides, the “Brother Brother” crooner noticed that Ghanaian artistes who are doing Highlife are more recognised in Europe than those who’re representing other genres. To him, you (Ghanaian artsites) can’t sell Dancehall or Hip-Hop better than the Europeans because they’re the originators.

“The Europeans want to listen to indigenous music and instruments comparably to Dancehall among others if you’re a Ghanaian artiste. How can a Ghanaian artiste sell Dancehall music better than Jamaicans?” Bisa Kdei quizzed.
