Highlife artist Kumi Guitar has expressed concern over the lack of support for Ghanaian musicians and creatives. According to the Betweener singer, Ghanaians do not value their own creatives, leading to a decline in their relevance in the industry over time. Kumi Guitar stated that Ghanaians often talk down on the creativity of artists and do not appreciate their talents. In contrast, creatives in other parts of the world receive enormous support and recognition, even the least talented ones.

Kumi Guitar attributed the success of Nigerian artists in the music industry to the support they receive from their own people. He emphasized that Nigerians would always choose their own musicians over Ghanaians. The artist further pleaded with relevant authorities to put support structures in place to recognize the works of veteran creatives who have paid their dues to the creative sphere but are no longer actively engaged.

Kumi Guitar also expressed concern over the trend of certain musicians inventing their own genre and calling it Afrobeats Highlife. He believes such a move would only spell doom for Ghana’s highlife music, and called for the preservation of the genre for future generations.

In conclusion, Kumi Guitar intends to make a comeback to the music scene with a single for his fans and music enthusiasts by the end of this month. The artist urged Ghanaians to support and value their own creatives, to enable them to maintain their relevance in the industry over time.
