Mr Solomon, Highlife singer

According to the Highlife singer based in Germany, he hasn’t been able to make financial returns after investing a lot of money into his craft.

Despite being signed under Mark Okraku's Slip Music Production, Mr Solomon said he never made a dime since he started his journey as a highlife musician even though he had a nationwide hit under the label.

According to Mr Solomon, he didn't make any income from music because he was doing it out of love for the craft.

I did not make any money under Slip Music. I’m not here to discredit Okuraku Mantey. I was actually just having fun with music, so I did not get any returns. I was a little bit young and naive, as well. So I didn’t know how things work,” he said on Connect97.1fm.

The German-based Ghanaian highlife musician detailed that he has been attending to other business hence his long absence from the music scene.

I have been in Germany taking care of other businesses. But I know there’s a lot I have to give when it comes to highlife, which is the origin of Ghanaian music. I think this is the time and that’s why I’ve decided to bounce back into the Ghanaian music scene. And this time, I will make it a full-time business,” he said.

Mr Solomon hinted at an album release soon as he is already promoting some singles. “I am promoting three singles at the moment – “Obi do”, “Odo ho Asem” and “Asomrodwe”. I will release my next album soon and I urge Ghanaians, both young and old, to support me because I’m bringing them nothing but good highlife music," he said.
