Veteran hi-life musician, Kaakyire Kwame Appiah has expressed gross disappointment at the way Ghanaians fail to honor and celebrate prolific figures and celebrities while their still living but rather hail them when they pass away.
According to the hi-life musician, this act is discouraging and needs to be stopped.
Kaakyire Kwame Appiah is known for his hit song, 24th (Bronya) which has remained a popular song since he released it some many years ago but enjoys airplay only during Christmas festivities. He has also recorded a number of hit songs over the years and can boast of having his name in the history books as far as hi-life music is concerned.
In a phone interview with Sammy Flex of Zylofon Fm on Wednesday and monitored by ghlinks.com.gh, the hi-life musician remarked that the rate at which Ghanaians fail to acknowledge good works of people when they are alive is appalling and very discouraging, an act that has to be stopped so as to birth more great celebrities in the country.
“What I have realized about the country Ghana is that anything that someone will do that is worth celebrating isn’t given credit but is recognized after the person passes on”, he told host Sammy Flex.
He noted that governments have come and gone without paying particular attention to creative arts and celebrities in the country, an act that should be frowned upon.
