Ghanaian dancehall singer Jupitar has arguably stated that high life music does not belong to Ghanaians as it has been speculated.
He made this shocking revelation in an exclusive interview with Amansan Krakye on Radio Central’s Drive Time.
“Its high time we educate fans and Ghanaians. Because its very shameful sometimes when we try to claim something that doesn’t belong to us. I think the word high life is an Akan traditional music which has been influenced with fostros, callipso and hip hop. I mean in the 90s and they found a name for it”, he revealed.
According to the ” Enemies” hitmaker, Ghanaians can’t claim ownership of high life because it has foreign influence.
“So high life itself is Akan traditional music so we can’t claim 100% ownership of it. If you have something that belongs to you, you have to show the origin. High life is indegenous Akan music that has been mixed with so many genres from the western world so we can’t claim 100% ownership”, he added.
