Ace Ghanaian highlife musician and composer, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley has disclosed that he has stopped featuring people on his records because a chunk of today’s musicians rush in producing music.

According to the legendary songwriter, some musicians he featured in times past wanted to record about ten songs in a day but he argued that music is not “fried rice” to be cooked in a few minutes. “You’re doing something to put it out there. You have to really make sure that it is properly done before it gets out there” he said.

Speaking on TV3’s Music Music, he added, “It’s not like it’s fried rice or a competition, this one is doing so I have to also do, no. You can’t take music that way because music is a life long something and for you to do it, and people to be able to hear your music and get it stacked in the minds, you have to put some time into it”.
