Highlife Is So Special – Ben Brako Says As Ge Initiates Annual Highlife And Culture Festival: Legendary Ghanaian Highlife musician, Bernard George Kobena Brako, professionally known as Ben Brako has publicized his plans to hold an annual Highlife and cultural festival across the country.

According to him, the initiative which will begin in September 2024 with the Oguaa Fetu Afahye is expected to promote indigenous culture and also promote the highlife genre.

The ‘Meko Mekrom’ hitmaker made this known during an interview with Asaase Radio’s Benjamin Offei-Addo on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Wednesday, January 3, 2024.

“You cannot compare Highlife to any kind of genre of music, it is so special. The important thing for me now, which I’m trying to do and I have started, is to create a highlife and culture festival.

“We are going to do this once a year and we are going to base it on the traditional festivals; you know at the traditional festivals you have the depth and beauty of our tradition and then you marry it with highlife,” he said.

The renowned singer continued by saying, “We are going to kick off with Fetu Afahye in Cape Coast this September, and next we may do Hogbetsotso, Aboakyir, Odwira or Homowo, every year we expose different cultures,” Ben Brako added.
