Only Highlife musicians can win Grammy for Ghana – Kumi Guitar insists



Ghanaian highlife musician, Kumi Guitar born Nana Yaw Kumi has envisaged that its only high-life musicians can win Grammy for Ghana.

Speaking in a virtual interview with Kumi Kasa of Aben Fm fame, Kumi Guitar said that it is on record that any African that has won or been nominated for Grammy won it on the ticket of their traditional music genre and what they can easily be identified with.

“You can cross check from Angélique Kidjo and the Nigerians winning in recent times back to back, they are winning because of what they are noted for and the huge investments behind them, if Ghanaians also want to win then they must also focus on the original highlife music”, he added.

According to him, the various musicians doing Hiplife and Reggae music can also win on their personal efforts but it will not be a win for Ghana.
