Legendary Highlife musician Kwadwo Akwaboah Snr has pleaded with Ghanaian musicians to regularly train their voices, citing that their VGMA performances were terrible.
Speaking in an interview with Happy FM, the Legendary Ghanaian Highlife musician said that listening to musicians perform at VGMA concert made him sad because the artistes sounded very poor
“I never listen to these programs and award schemes but because of Kwabena, I decided to sit through the VGMA. I sat and listened to the voices of these performing artistes and they sounded very poor. Some of them have really bad voices.” He said.
He further added that: “I wasn’t impressed with their voices at the VGMA. Some of them sounded differently from their records,”
Nonetheless, he advised musicians to focus more on training their vocals and participate more in life performances to avoid embarrassments on bigger stages.
“They should seek help from voice trainers and focus more on stage performances instead of studio recordings and auto tuning techniques. That is how our musicians can sound and do well. Every highlife artiste must be conversant with an instrument. In our day, every musician was at least talented with a guitar or piano.” He advised.
