Ghana’s Deputy Information Minister, Fatimatu Abubakar has eulogized multi-talented Radio Broadcaster, Kwame Adinkrah for his musical prowess revealing that he is her favourite Highlife artist, MyNewsGh.com reports.
Commenting on her taste in Ghanaian music on Kumasi-based Pure FM as part of her discussions on a wide range of issues in the country, Hon. Fatimatu Abubakar narrated that she had to change her taste from Dancehall to Hi-Life when a friend in the USA introduced her to Kwame Adinkrah’s songs which came as a surprise to her because she had known him to be only a broadcaster.
“Wofa, let me tell you a story. You know I used to listen to these contemporary Ghanaian musicians. Dancehall was top on my list but something happened.
I went to New Jersey and I was in the car of a brother called Guy Gee to a shopping mall when he had a song on repeat which really got to me so I inquired the musician behind it and to my surprise, I was informed it was you.
That was when my focus was re-directed to Hi-Life. He played your songs back-to-back and I haven’t stopped listening to your music ever since.
My elder sibling even explained some of the lyrics to me. It’s amazing.” She narrated on Pure FM.
