Ghanaian Highlife icon Amakye Dede collaborates with award-winning rapper Sarkodie in their latest track, ‘Been A Fool For You.’ The song, which expertly combines classic Highlife with modern rap, is a monument to the enduring appeal of each artist’s genre.
Amakye Dede, a legend in the Highlife genre, brings his signature soulful melodies and emotive delivery to the forefront. His rich vocals, accompanied by the distinctive sounds of Highlife instrumentation, create a nostalgic atmosphere, reminiscent of the golden era of Ghanaian music.
