Highlife legend K.K. Kabobo has said musicians during his prime were not overly focused on making money.

He explained that the industry was fuelled by so much passion to the extent that every talented singer, instrumentalist or drummer wanted the chance to play for a band.

According to him, Ghanaians and citizens in other parts of the world patronised the highlife genre to the core, adding that, every industry person wanted to own or play without paying much attention to the monetary aspect.

“The money wasn’t anything. There were dance bands and guitar bands. I have played in more than 18 bands in my life. Right now, studio sessions even pay more than the bands,” K.K. Kabobo said on Adom TV’s Ahosepe Xtra over the weekend.

He explained that until he started recording in a studio, he never knew studio sessions actually pay that much.

“We wanted more airplay than even the money. It was by grace, if you should even hear your song play on radio at that time,” he told Sister Sandy.
