Ghanaian musician based in the United States of America, Adam Ro, has expressed his desire to let the world know the worth of Ghanaian music.
According to him, Ghana has a lot of rhythms that set them apart from other people from other parts of the world.
The Afrobeat and reggae musician said even though he does not do highlife, his music has a lot of traditional rhythms from Ghana.
“I support the idea to push highlife on all fronts. It is all that we have. But we need to also create an environment for other genres. I do reggae and Afrobeats but if you listen critically to my songs, you’d realise that most of my rhythms are purely Ghanaian, and that is what I am putting up there on the map,” he said.
“I am working hard to take my music to music lovers all over the world, and I will make sure I represent Ghana well,” he further stated.
He has songs such as ‘Higher Man’, ‘Mix’ and ‘African Woman’.
