David Kojo Kyei, also known as Kaywa, an ace Ghanaian music producer and sound engineer, has revealed the amount of interest and enthusiasm for Ghanaian-made sounds among Nigerian musicians.
Despite social media debates and worldwide awards won by Nigerian musicians around the world, the award-winning producer stayed firm in his statements.
“Nigerians respect our music, so I feel terrible for anyone who claims our sounds are poor,” Kaywa stated during an interview with Happy 98.9 FM’s Doctor Cann during the Showbiz Xtra show.
Kaywa also exhorted Ghanaians to embrace change despite its challenges and to support indigenous musicians. He also urged Ghanaians to appreciate our musicians and urged the federal government to enact legislation allowing them to perform.
“Change is difficult, but it produces results, thus Ghanaians should make it a priority to play more Ghanaian music.” Ghanaians should value what they have, good or bad, and the government should assist in pushing the objective of playing Ghanaian music, he added.
