‘Ashikele’ may not be a hit song in this era – George Jahraa


Veteran Ghanaian Highlife musician, George Jahraa has admitted his hit song, “Ashikele” may not have been a hit song if it was released in this era.

The ace musician who has been in hibernation for a while now explains he is back and ready to release new music.

Speaking in an interview on ‘The Gist’ on Joynews, the musician born Kwame Ekumfi-Ameyaw said his yet to be released songs are fit for the current generation.

” Music is dynamic but maybe if I had released “Ashikele” this year, it may not be a hit song. So I go with the flow. I can’t come from the old and bring something for the youngsters to consume.” He said

Adding that: “I listen to the young ones like Sarkodie, Kuami Eugene, Kidi and the rest and I observe the public and I know what they want because music is about feeding your listeners with what they want.”

“You can’t come back and impose something from 20 years on the audience so what I’m releasing is similar to the new style but the only difference is the George Jahraa lyrics” he stressed

He applauded the new generation for holding the musical forte.

George Jahraa became very popular when he released his first album “Driver Banza” in 1990.

The Gist airs on the Joynews Channel on MultiTV and on DSTV 421 on Saturdays and Sundays at 8.30pm.
