Tonight, Wednesday 22 March 2017 at 7pm on Ahotor 92.3fm, on the Program Heroes of Our Time,
Mr Akyena Brantuo, King of the Microphone, will be interviewing the Ghanaian HIGHLIFE legend, NANA KWAME AMPADU 1, a man who has seen it all in indigenous Ghanaian music, and kept the flag of Ghana afloat on the international scene through authentic Ghanaian music.
Nana Ampadu is credited with over 700 hit songs and the youngest to have formed and led a music band in the early 1960s.
Even as he comes to the evening of his life, it is only befitting that he passes on what he has learnt over the years through the gift of God in music, drama, history, culture, story telling, hard work and general encounter with life to the younger generation.
We need to understand the story of his life, his family, education, career, success, fame, wealth , awards, failures and how he managed all these.
Unfortunately not many of our history is recorded in books. However, tonight’s over two hour exclusive interview with this Ghanaian hero will compensate for that as it will present a rare opportunity for the average Ghanaian to imbibe the history of our highlife music, its secrets, how to be a part of it, how to integrate it into modern life and especially make it economically viable as reggae has become to the Jamaicans, through oral tradition.
