Award winning Ghanaian Highlife musician Kwabena Kwabena has showered lots of praises on his father for being instrumental in his successful music career.
In an interview on Joy Prime’s E Vibes, the Adult Music artiste narrated how his father shaped his music career with his extensive music knowledge.
Kwabena Kwabena indicated that his father's extensive record collection from back in the day had a significant influence on his musical journey.
“My dad had almost every record. My dad inspired my music career greatly. My dad knew who I was. He supported everything I did. He came to watch me play football."
"He supported everything I did. He was always behind the scenes but he is that person who encourages anything he sees in you. When I started doing music, I didn't really tell anybody. I was just recording.
“I remember I had gone to record 'M3y3' and I was playing in my room and he just entered my room, sat down for a little while and the comment he made was 'that is a very beautiful song' and he thinks is going to be a hit. Those words from him gave me a lot of energy to do more,” he said.
In a recent interview, Kwabena Kwabena who is known for songs such as Afraid to Lose, Obaa, Tuamuda encouraged musicians to employ poets to write songs for them.
“Musicians should start to appreciate people who have various talents. There are people who are good producers, there are people who are good composers, there are people who write good stories. “I must admit, we need to start employing poets; people who can write or put together beautiful English pieces, then we can get composers to actually produce the melody,” he sai
