High life Maestro, Kojo Antwi has opined new artistes to abstain from using sexually allusive words and focus their talents on creating songs with lyrics that have the penchant to change lives.
In an interview on Yen Sempa morning show on Onua FM Thursday, Mr. Music Man advised the new generation to be cautious in the lyrics of their songs, and continuously have in mind that people of all ages and pedigree listen to their songs.
He observed that, new artists have constantly been symbolizing women’s body with the use of sexually suggestive lyrics in their songs without any form of decorum at all.
Nonetheless he confessed the new garner of musicians have their own style, he said it was significant that they draw motivation from the older generation in the business.
“The words, the lyrics are the most important. People are listening, children are listening. Those outside Ghana teach their children the local dialects with our songs but most of the lyrics are about a woman’s body,” he said.
“Songs of today are more-self-centered; it is just ‘baby, I will buy you that, I will buy you designer wear, just give me your body. I feel there are older musicians who taught the young ones better than they are doing.
“We have older ones like Fela, Nana Ampedu and co who taught us that we have a struggle, and struggling people think more us, instead of just me,” he clarified.
Kojo Antwi also added that he is thankful to God for his gift and the fact that he is able to get his songs right and produce music that last a lifetime.
For the moment, the Maestro is due to host a musical concert on December 24, 2018 at the La Beach Hotel. He is promising an entertaining night for fans.
