Ghanaians Love For Dancehall Is Killing Highlife : Bisa Kdei

Published

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.

Selena Gomez

American singer and actress, Selena Gomez, who has suffered a series of breakups, has now admitted she would want someone to ‘love her for the person she is.

The 26-year-old ‘Back To You’ singer made her intention known on the Dream It Real podcast on Wednesday.

Selena told the show’s host, Heben Nigatu, that she often feels misjudged when it comes to her heart.

She said: ‘I think that a lot of people don’t understand my heart, you know?’

‘I also don’t like that, it can sometimes be about appearance, too. I don’t really appreciate people judging me on my looks, or anything like that.’

Due to all that judgement and misunderstanding, Selena said she desires someone who will love her for who she truly is.

‘I just think that the world today, with so much exposure to everything… it’s great to dress up and to feel beautiful and to do those things, but…and I’m flattered when, maybe, guys are like, ‘You’re pretty,’ I am, it’s just not… I would just love someone to love me for the person that I am. That’s just what’s important to me,’ she said.

In 2018, Selena had a rocky relationship with her on again, off again boyfriend, Justin Bieber who left her and got married to Hailey Baldwin. 

That split followed her relationship with The Weeknd, who both also broke up. The singer has since moved on with his on and off partner, Bella Hadid.
