Legendary Ghanaian highlife musician, Gyedu Blay Ambolley has given possible reasons why songs produced by the current crop of musicians do not last.
He spoke about this when he appeared on eTV Ghana as he was interviewed by Foster Romanus the Late Nite Celebrity Show.
In his submission, he said;
“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.”
