Hiplife is known to be a Ghanaian style of music that combines the Ghanaian traditional higlife and the Hip hop genre.
The genre is widely recorded in the Akan language and has swiftly gained recognition and popularity throughout West Africa and the world.
Most Ghanaians are not cognizant of the evolution of hip hop and the personalities who championed the hip life movement.
However, a group of dedicated citizens have started a project to document the history of hip life and how it gained recognition in Ghana and beyond.
Speaking on Zylofon FM’s Showbiz Agenda, Jumaid Liman expressed the need for history to be documented.
Liman, who is championing this project stated that some of the factors embedded in this documentary are: the definition of hip life and answers to all the controversies surrounding the genre.
He noted that the project captured key industry players including the likes of Reggie Rockstone, Obrafour and Zabb Mallet.
The project is said to highlight how Reggie originated the genre, how Obrafour redirected the course of hip life and many more.
He announced that the documentary will be premiered in September this year.
Liman further called on Ghanaian to support the preservation of our history and culture.
