Bisa Kdei launches “Highlife Konnect” album in colourful African set-up
"‘Highlife Konnect’ is all about connecting with other African artistes and connecting my African fanbase," Bisa Kdei said.
The event, which took place at Level 8 inside One Airport Square in Accra on Saturday, April 21, saw top industry players and showbiz writers in attendance and were all in colourful African prints.
Garbed in Kente Cloth, Bisa Kdei was introduced by Nana Kyeremanteng of the School of Performing Arts, University of Ghana, Legon. He had performed live Highlife songs full of appellations for Bisa Kdei with a traditional guitar before ushering him in.
Bisa told the press that “Highlife Konnect” is a plan to connect with his fans across Africa.
“I’ve travelled to many African countries and I realised how much they love my Highlife songs. And as a young artiste, what you need to do is to tap into other markets to be able to expand your fanbase.
So, I said to myself that if they love me this much, why don’t I feature some of their artistes and tap into their fanbase.
‘Highlife Konnect’ is all about connecting with other African artistes and connecting my African fanbase.”
