Jamaican born award winning Reggae and R&B singer, Gramps Morgan, has registered his disquiet about the recent African style of writing lyrics for their music.
The ‘Wash away my tears’ hit-maker made this observation on Hanging out with KOD, an entertainment programme, aired on GhOne every Sunday at 9:00 PM.
He decried the kind of profane music being composed by the up and coming musicians, saying “let’s do good and quality music and stop using profane words in our music… we are African.”
According to the father of six, “I believe we must unite as Africans and avoid writing bad music. We must let our children know about Kwame Nkrumah, Hail Selassie and Nelson Mandela.”
Gramps Morgan noted that the youth of today do not even know the names of their past and present leaders of their own countries yet they know all that is happening on social media.
He encouraged the youth to take their education serious as it is the vehicle for their development.
