I DIDN’T DO ENOUGH TO CREATE THE NEXT HIPLIFE GENERATION – Okyeame Kwame

Hiplife in Ghana is currently in disarray, and Ghanaian legendary rapper and hiplife artiste, Okyeame Kwame has voiced his disgust.

The “Yeeko” hitmaker acknowledges that Hiplife is in coma and holds himself accountable for not taking proactive measures to ensure the genre’s effective transmission to the following generation.

In his interview on Starr Chat with Bola Ray on Tuesday, he said: “I think that for every genre to be able to stay alive, there must be a group of young people who are interested in carrying the torch to the next young generation and for hiplife we don’t have that.”

Also, Okyeame Kwame stated that he felt he had let the younger hip-hop musicians down.

“People like myself have failed the young generation completely, because when I took on the mantle of hiplife in 1996, the last thing I knew was anthropology, sociology or marketing. I didn’t know I was supposed to carry this thing upfront and give it to someone else,” he noted.

He continued by drawing comparisons between Ghana’s hiplife scene and that of the West, emphasizing the lack of efforts to support the Ghanaian hiplife scene.

“This thing we’re doing, this is not how it’s done. Big Daddy Kane will carry to a point and give it to Jay Z, Jay Z will give it to another person, another person will give it to Kanye, that is how we keep it moving,” he said.
