OTJ (Obibini Takyi Jnr) has made a critical observation about how the Ghana music industry players are treating Highlife music.

He stated in an interview with Accra FM’s Nana Romeo on Saturday that we are shifting our focus with the perception that Highlife songs don’t go far.

He attributed this to the current crop of musicians who are just following a certain music trend on social media.

OTJ added: “We are killing Highlife music because the current generation of Ghanaian young musicians are not interested in promoting Highlife.

Another aspect of the problem is that Ghana DJs, restaurants, drinking pubs, and presenters keep promoting Nigerian music at the expense of our good old Highlife Music,” he lamented.

He also indicated that he has plans to do Afrobeat but he will still blend it with a Highlife flavour.

OTJ is currently promoting his latest single MAASE across the whole of Ghana.

According to Obibini Takyi, the MAASE track focuses on the tourism sector and makes reference to Maase, a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti region.

OTJ has other songs to his credit which include BOSO POWDER, APUTOOR, HAPPY YOURSELF, BAD ENERGY, and SIKA NO ASHI.

All his songs are available across all music streaming platforms.

He is being managed by First Klass Music record Label.
