Celebrated Hiplife artiste, Nii Addo Quaynor, known in the music industry as Tinny has categorically stated that Hiplife music in Ghana has collapsed.
According to Tinny on Kumasi based Pure fm with Hammer Nti a week ago, he said that for Hiplife music to be on its feet again, it will take Hammer of the Last Two to return to the industry.
He blames the collapse of Hiplife music on the current crop of musicians who have all taken the line of Afro-pop music.
“Hiplife music is dead. Time changes and the music terrain is shifting attention to Afro-Pop music. Afro-Pop has taken over. Azonto music came and spoiled everything. It will only take Hammer of the Last Two to revive Hiplife music but he’s also into bread baking currently.”
Tinny is a household name in the Ghana music industry. He was voted and awarded African Artiste of the year at the 2009 edition of the Hip Hop World Awards.
Popular among his acts include, “Makola Kwakwe”, “Ayekoo”, to mention but a few.
