“Ghana does not have an agenda to promote Highlife music” – Quarme Zaggy

Musician Quarme Zaggy has lamented about the lack of concerted effort and agenda by the music industry to promote the indigenous Ghanaian music which is Highlife.

In an interview with Londona on Kingdom Fm’s entertainment talk show Entertainment Arena yesterday {November 30, 2019} the music germ who is currently prepping up for the release of his second studio album which is expected next year talked about how we have lost our identities due to the the excessive consumption of foreign materials, in this case music.

“We need to push our Highlife identity, so that people can identify us with our music” he said.

He further stated that in recent times when one tunes in to a radio station, all that are being played is music by non-Ghanaians, a situation that keeps affecting the agenda to promote indigenous music from Ghana.

“We need to make noise about Highlife for it to be attractive enough to outsiders and let’s create room for people who are doing indigenous Highlife music” he added.

According to him, Highlife needs to be fixed because “I feel bad when people comfortably say Highlife is dead”.

He also said that, the time has come for the whole industry to gather their support and push Gh music to the international stage in a well packaged form.

“Our music is solid and if we can push it together, then it will get all the attention that other genres are getting because we made it ours”

Quarme Zaggy is out with a new Highlife jam titled “Chemistry” which is doing well and is expected to catch fire this Christmas.
