YOUR SONGS SHOULD NOT ALWAYS BE ABOUT WHINE YOUR WAIST S.EX, BE CONSCIOUS – Kafui Dey

Ghanaian broadcaster, musician, and master of ceremonies Kafui Dey has counseled musicians to prioritize social concerns impacting society and sing about them in order to assist in reforming, educating, transforming, and changing our dysfunctional society.

According to Mr. Dey, songs should also discuss societal challenges and the best ways to address them, in addition to topics like money, wine, and sex.

He questioned why songwriters of music aren’t motivated to create songs that promote awareness of galamsey and other societal problems.

He was talking with host Daniel Dadson on Rainbow Entertainment on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm.

He was responding to a query regarding the impact of radio on Ghanaian music.

He claimed that the media we consume shapes the way we think, and that other nations have restrictive immigration laws, whereas Ghana has such liberal ones.

He argued that we should observe the current generation of young people and how they behave if we want to understand the direction the nation is taking.

”If you want to see where Ghana is going, let’s look at our young people. That is where Ghana is going. If you look at the young people, that is where Ghana is going.”

He lamented the situation where Ghanaian musicians want to sound like Nigeria and vice versa.

He described it as interesting since it is only business for these musicians saying, ”not everything is about money. This whole money thing is a capitalist way of thinking. We go beyond that in Africa”.

Kafui Dey said ”I don’t hear musicians singing about the destruction of our environment like the Rastafarians do. The reggae people always sing about conscious issues. It is not always about whining about your waist or let’s make love. The reggae people talk about equal rights and justice. I want to see more consciousness from our musicians. It should not always be about sex and money”.
