- Mikki Osei Berko said in the past, musicians put in a lot of energy in producing music than the current musicians are.
- He said irrespective, there are very creative musicians in the current crop of musicians.
Ace broadcaster and actor, Mikki Osei Berko has expressed his dissatisfaction in the current crop of musicians and their style of doing music by saying he thinks the current generation of musicians are not doing enough like the past musicians .
The broadcaster was in an interview with Sammy Forson on ‘Behind The Fame’ on Joy Fm on Monday.
As monitored by ghlinks.com.gh, Dada Boat as he is affectionately known explained that in the past, musicians make use of traditional instruments in their recording sessions and also fuse in lots of instruments in their songs. This makes their songs come out as rich, indigenous and full of energy. However, the current crops of musicians according to him go by a one-way style of recording their music, making the song lack creativity.
He however acknowledged that there are still creative musicians out there, making reference to Sarkodie and applauding his style of rap and his choice of content. He emphasized that other musicians such as Kuame Eugene and Kidi are equally doing well with their style of music as well.
Advising the current crop of musicians, he said they should do well to fuse the Ghanaian style of music, which is hi-life into their music because it sells Ghana to the rest of the world. He added that he has started an online radio, Kente Radio which will be promoting hi-life music.
