There’s a new breed of Ghanaian artists who are holding the torch for the sustenance, projection and recognition of highlife music – which is, without any shred of doubt, the bedrock of Ghanaian music.
One of the such breed is Dada Hafco!
A former member of the defunct group, Mframa, Dada Hafco, has stayed true to his highlife roots albeit amalgamating the old sound with his own ingenuity, making his songs refreshingly different.
In the last year or two, he has released splendid highlife tunes while chalking some massive collaborations. There’s Mensesa with K.K Fosu, the Okyeame Kwame-assisted Musuo, Wenim Ye Ha with Flowking Stone and many others.
With no rest period in his setup, Dada Hafco is out with another well-written, expertly produced, quintessential highlife song many tout as one of the best in recent times.
The song, Bedi Anko, which was produced by A.T.O – is basically a song that appreciates love with the right and perfect instrumentation that passes for a perfect highlife song – and it features another burgeoning highlife act, Paa Kwasi Dobble.
Dada Hafco is on the build up to his album “The New Era” which will be released later this year.
