Okyeame Kwame has seen the ups and downs of Ghanaian music but stayed glued to the genre that’s truly from the depth of the land enjoyed by many across the length and breadth of every household in the country. For some time now, the inundation of foreign genres took a bit of shine away from this authentic Ghanaian music genre called Highlife, many tried to pull it back, some succeeded, some were left with no life, hence gave up too early.
With his latest album Made In Ghana is the talk of the town for its organic composition, arrangement, delivery, and a huge military salute to Highlife music, the Ghanaian musician who has spent over 20-years in the music industry is using this beautiful well-crafted project to send a signal of hope and life in Highlife music.
Okyeame recruited a tall list of both the newest faces on the music scenes like Kidi, Kuame Eugene, Feli Nuna, Wiyaala and the old faces like Wutah Afriyie plus more to serve the best on the project. At the launch concert on Saturday, April 20, 2019, at +233 Jazz Bar and Grill located right in the heart of the city of Accra, Okyeame brought on stage all these acts to perform and help sell CDs of the album packaged so nicely, graced by music enthusiasts from all walks of life.
The beauty of this project is, it celebrates and represents the true nature of Ghanaian music from all the regions in the country. Even though we continue to nod our heads to different genres, Highlife music is still in our DNA and the Made In Ghana album is a resounding reminder from Okyeame Kwame that Highlife is can never be over.
