Featuring pioneering icons such as Reggie Rockstone, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley, and filmmaker Abraham Ohene–Djan, as well as rich historical archive of Highlife music and Ghanaian life, reporter Akwasi Sarpong leads us through the genre’s early musical and cultural influences.

Fused with music from the best of West Africa’s elite today, including multi-award winner Burna Boy, Hiplife Rewind is a visually striking inside story of Hiplife music.
