Kumi Guitar on set
Zylofon Media signee, Kumi Guitar once had a dream to revive the highlife genre in Ghana and it seems that dream is coming alive as he features four of Ghana`s highlife legends on his latest single called ‘Dreams’ as produced by Linkin Beats.
“He wrote this song to rekindle the love highlife music used to enjoy among Ghanaians as he likens himself to great and men with vision like Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Azumah Nelson, Marcus Garvey etc.” His PR team told us that ‘Dreams’ concept came in handy to to revive highlife music which does not appeal to young people of today.
The video of the “Dream” as directed by Abass with supervision from Enoch Attakorah was shot in the environs of Cape Coast, Elmina and Takoradi saw the highlife legends Nana Kwame Amadu, Charles Amoah, Pat Thomas and veteran music producer Zapp Mallet playing different roles in telling the story of Kumi Guitar and his penchant to make his highlife dream achievable.
The audio and the visuals of Dreams will be released on Friday 21st July 2017 online and will be premiered to the media exclusively at Zylofon Media headquarters at Midday.
