Veteran artiste AB Crentsil says he is disappointed in the current trend artistes have taken the Highlife music.
Speaking on DriveTime on Joy FM, he explained that a lot of foreign genres are getting mixed with the highlife sound making it adultered adding it is “not great.”
“You can clearly listen to a song being played on a funky rhythm but the person is singling highlife. You can’t determine the kind of Highlife they are trying to put out there. I am disturbed about this,” the Highlife legend told Lexis Bill.
AB Crentsil believes that these new trends are killing the Highlife genre adding that true highlife is not as popular as it used to be.
“That’s what is happening now and I am sad about it,” he added.
The veteran believes the one artiste keeping Highlife touch burning is Kofi Kinaata.
“Now I listen to Kofi Kinaata and he is doing well and bringing back the highlife which is getting lost into the system,” he said.
