Highlife musician Kwabena Kwabena has explained the motive behind his ‘Adult Music’ hit song, saying that he wanted the song to amuse Ghanaians in the various aspects of their lives.

Despite the various debates among entertainment pundits and the general public as to whether ‘Adult Music’ is an x-rated song or not, it has been receiving a lot of airplay both on radio and at social gatherings.

“At a point I realised that people wanted songs that will amuse them and then again a song that was a little explicit.  But then, again, I didn’t want to lose what makes me a Ghanaian; that was why I chose a beat that was like the ‘Adowa’ beat,” Kwabena Kwabena stated.

He added that he also wanted a song that could be played in the clubs as well as at some social events.

“Also being able to bang it into a time that it can be played in the club.   Those were the things running through my head when I was writing the ‘Adult Music’ song,” he said.

For some time now, Kwabena has battled to clear the perception among a section of Ghanaians who are of the view that the ‘Adult Music’ is a profane song, which should not be played on radio or on TV.

‘Adult Music’ has gained so much popularity among lovers of highlife music.  The song basically speaks about what lovemaking is. Reggae act Samini, who was featured on the song, added his ‘Midas touch’ to the fast tempo highlife fused with Afrobeat track.
