Veteran highlife musician, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley has described the current crop of Ghanaian musicians as copycats.

According to him, most musicians depict no originality in their works. He has observed that instead of popularising highlife, which he considers Ghana’s identity, many have chosen to do dancehall and other non-Ghanaian genres.

Ambolley made the statement on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz, Tuesday, when asked if his thirtieth album has the strength to compete with the current crop of music.

“I don’t think it is going to be like a challenge. Each and everybody knows that whatever I come out with is Gyedu-Blay Ambolley. But the young ones, I think they have a lot of problems. They are not becoming original. They are doing too much of a copy. We have so much to offer in this country in connection to identity. We have something our forefathers left for us which is highlife. That is where our style comes from,” he noted.

Ambolley also revealed he turned down possibilities of becoming a priest. According to him, he considers music as the best avenue he can contribute to national development.

“It’s a gift given me by the Most High. Apart from music, I don’t think I know any other thing doing better. When I was in school, I had the chance of becoming a priest… I really sat down and though twice and said what I can do to contribute to the world is music so my whole concentration came on that and I have never regretted,” he said.

The album is due for release in June.
