Dan Amakye Dede, a veteran Ghanaian highlife artiste who still mounts big stages despite the fact that highlife is at the low ebb, is about embarking on a music tour to the US.
In an interview with him, he told Flex newspaper that for about 10 years now he is now preparing to tour America.
Asked why it took him that long to tour the US, he said sometimes it depends on the promoters who employ their services. “For some years now since most of the music promoters are in Europe and the few in America mostly suggest how my production should go, I always refuse their offers,” he added.
He said that the new promoters he is going to work with during his tour in America seem to be okay with his terms and are ready to let him go there with his band.
“For me when am going to perform, I don’t only look at the monetary aspect but rather I think about giving my fans the best of performance, so when you want to employ my services and you are coming with good monetary offer and you are not ready to let us look at the other aspect, which is giving the people quality performance, I will turn down the offer,” he said.
