Multiple-award winning hip-life musician, C-zar, has revealed that he is back in the music industry to save the dying hip-life music.
C-zar, who is currently out with his hit track titled; ‘Sorry,’ was answering a question regarding the state of hip-life.
The ‘Mercy Lokko’ hit maker spoke with Dr. Who, host of Hot and Classic showbiz review on Hot 93.9 FM in Accra.
“Dr. Who, frankly, hip-life music is currently not doing well like it was some years back. Now all the guys are switching to hip-pop and Afro-pop which is extremely bad,” C-zar noted.
He added: “Reggie Rockstone, Nananom, late Terry Bonchaka, Tic Tac, Obrafour, Lord Kenya, Buk bak etc., did very well for hip-life. Nigerian musicians are the ones confusing our artists with the English language.”
“…Now immediately you sing in English then it’s perceived to be either hip-pop or Afro pop which is wrong. I’m back in the game just to save the hip-life genre.”
C-zar is known in real life as Augustine Osei Owusu. His newest song, ‘Sorry,’ is currently enjoying massive airplay.
He featured Luther and was produced by Nero Steger.
