It could be recall back some few days ago when BBC NEWS featured Ghanaian hiplife Originator, Reggie Rockstone and other legendry artists in a 3:58 minutes documentary in the quest of finding out the root of hiplife in Ghana.
Some Ghanaians didn’t take it kind with the cooperation for such shallow work done on a very productive projects which could’ve taken some time and much effort to get accurate evidence to make it educative and satisfying.
Commenting on the issue is Ghanaian rapper, musician, songwriter, and creative director Okyeame Kwame on 3Music Tv The Culture Daily with Jay Foley shares his views on the Hiplife Rewind documentary by BBC. According him, he thinks it is time Ghanaians got to wake up from their sleep own up and write their own documentary about Hiplife and other history that have not been told well.
” We are waiting for the Hollywood to come and shoot the Tarzan story and there were white boys swinging in the tress and then we’re complaining, we sit down for the to take the Anansi’s story and they do Spiderman and then we complain again. What is stopping as, we have cameras, we have story tellers, so what is stopping us from making our own hiplife documentary” He said.
