The ‘Asa Bone’ borga highlife song by Lord Paper which is now the favourite of most music lovers has taken us back to those days when the music scene was bubbling with awesome creativity.
Lord Paper has revealed that he got his inspiration to compose his song from listening to ‘Akwanoma’ a song by the iconic music living legend Charles K. Fosu popular known in the showbiz industry as Daddy Lumba.
In an exclusive interview with Amansan Krakye on GBC Radio Central in Cape Coast monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Lord Paper insisted that no part of his ‘Asa Bone’ song was sampled from Daddy Lumba, neither the lyrics nor the beat.
He narrated “Basically when you listen to my ‘Asa Bone’ song you’ll realise that it was inspired by Daddy Lumba and borga highlife.
“It’s been a while since Ghana heard such a song but it been part of us from way back. For some time now it’s been afrobeat, hip hop and highlife so I was like why we are not taping into our old classic songs back in the days.
“So I decided to bring it back and it’s doing amazing. There was no sampling, I didn’t sample anything from ‘Akwanoma’. I was saying that inspired me to do my song so I didn’t sample the beat or lyrics.
“Some movies are inspired by other movies. So there was no sampling and I have to clear the air about that”.
