ENTERTAINMENT IS PUTTING GHANA ON THE MAP MORE THAN FOOTBALL – Dada Hafco 

Dada Hafco, a highlife artist from Ghana, thinks that the country’s future lies more in the arts and culture than in athletics.

Concerned about the country’s lax approach to the arts, Dada Hafco told Kwame Dadzie on Joy FM’s Showbiz A-Z that Ghana would benefit more from increased investment in the field.

He claims that the investment in football has not produced the expected returns.

“Look at how much money we’ve been pumping into the Black Stars. I am an avid football lover. I would love to watch football every time. But since 1982 if we haven’t won any football trophy why do we keep doing it when in recent times Ghana has become a hub for entertainment every Christmas?” he asked.

“Why are we not channeling enough energy [into the arts] because entertainment is actually putting Ghana on the map more than even football so why are not putting more energy into that?” Hafco added.

The highlife musician also lamented that one of the problems facing Ghana’s music business is the absence of a coordinated effort to promote Ghanaian music.

According to him, if the Broadcasting Law is passed to give assent to playing more local songs than foreign songs on Ghanaian radio, a lot of songs that have been consigned to the back by some DJs will make their way into their playlists.

He believes that Highlife should be shown as the face of Ghanaian music, and that even if he thinks every musician in Ghana should be able to experiment with other musical styles.

Dada Hafco, is one half of the defunct highlife duo Mframa known for songs such as ‘Fiili Gadoochi’, ‘Ghana Lady’, ‘Meboso’, among others.
