I’m honoured representing highlife on global stage — Kabaka




A veteran musician, Godwin Opara, aka Kabaka, says he is honoured to be representing highlife music on a global stage.

Speaking on the heels of his new album titled, ‘Abialam (I have Returned)’ making a swift rise on Apple Music, he said, “It is an honour to represent highlife music on a global stage and make history with my album.

“Abialam’ has not only topped charts, it has also garnered critical acclaim from music critics, who laud its rich instrumentation, lyrical depth and innovative sound. We are beyond thrilled to see this level of engagement and support from our fans around the world.”

Kabaka also noted that the album is an intricate tapestry of traditional rhythms and modern beats, capturing the essence of highlife music, while resonating with a broad international audience. He added, “It features six tracks that pay homage to the highlife genre’s rich history, while also incorporating contemporary elements that make it accessible and relevant to today’s music scene.”

The musician, who is managed and packaged by Anyanwu Ammarachi’s Derda Promotions, added that he would be going on tour soon with his Oriental International Brothers band.
