Songwriter, producer, and composer Gyedu-Blay Ambolley has said Lumba’s songs are disco-type one.
Speaking with Andy Dosty on Day Break Hitz on Hitz 103.9fm an Accra based radio station in Ghana Gyedu-Blay Ambolley stated that a good music must have a live recorded instruments in it to make it sound right which Dada Lumba’s songs lack.
In an example, he said the kay wuo’s song from Dada Lumba doesn’t have any live recorded instruments in it.
“I will describe this song from lumba as a disco-type one because when the voice is taken out from the song you don’t feel any live recorded instruments in it.” He said.
Moving on he describes ‘sharp-sharp’ music a trending issue in the music industry in Ghana as a song beat done using a computerized system which must of the hiplife artists in Ghana goes in for. “Most of the hiplife artists in Ghana want to record ten songs in a day so they go in for this computerize system way of making song beats neglecting our Atenteben, xylophone, Drum, Shakers, and flute which portrays our culture.” He said.
He said this ‘sharp-sharp’ way of doing music from this up-coming hiplife artists is killing the music industry in Ghana if something is not done.
