According to the highlife legend, the only time he does listen to any of his songs is after he is done recording.

When he finally puts it out, he leaves it for listeners to enjoy and does not go back to listen to it anymore.

"For me, when I go somewhere, and my music is being played, I don't feel comfortable. I mostly want to listen to my songs immediately after I'm done recording them to correct any mistakes. Aside from that, I don't listen to my song," he said on Accra-based Adom FM this week.

Amakye Dede is a leading highlife artiste in Ghana whose work is known across the globe.
