We at Loud Sound Ghana celebrate old Ghanaian musicians once in a while and today, it’s an honour to say Ghanaian Highlife legend Paapa Yankson, is next on our list. Music in Ghana have changed over the past decades but there are some songs that will never fade! Some of these songs are songs sang by Paapa Yankson.
The most beautiful thing that happened at the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards is when Paapa Yankson was given the Lifetime Achievement Award. Goosebumps and wet eyes experienced that day, means the legend felt even more honoured and appreciated. He came on stage in a wheel chair but looking cheerful and promised the audience he will get back on his feet soon and release a song for all his fans.
He shared his story about how music started for him and that alone is a huge inspiration to other musicians and people who are eager to follow their talents and make the best out of them. The song writer, music teacher and singer has released a lot of golden highlife songs which will stay with us forever.
It’s an honour to share one of our favourite songs from Paapa and urge you all to get his “Best Of Paapa Yankson” album on iTunes. The song below is one of the most beautiful, soul-touching and emotional love song ever written. After listening to this song, you will know love really has power!
