It has come to light that, some of the contents on our screens are negatively affecting the current generation.

Taking a swipe back at the early 90s, our screens had a lot of educative programmes that facilitated the learning of good morals and values, but we hardly see such programmes of late.

Discussing this with veteran and sensational musician, Nana Ama Dadzie on Artist Vibe Africa with Blogger Kobby Kyei, she revealed how the situation is creating a negative impact on Ghanaians.

She said, “With regards to the Contents, growing up as a child, I used to watch Maame Dokono’s show which was full of lessons, but now it's no more. The current generation does not even know what that show was about. There’s nothing like drama in schools anymore, we don’t teach music in schools anymore, so the culture is not there and the youth is not getting what we got from these.”

She further threw more light on how the government and other stakeholders can help avert the situation.

She said, “As a mother and as a musician, I will plead on the government if they can still introduce music in our schools, drama on our TV stations. I think the Telenovelas have taken over and some of the cartoons are even more dangerous. So I think our TV stations and the government should look up to those things, so that our kids will also enjoy what we were enjoying."

Anna Nana Ama Dadzie is a veteran Ghanaian backing vocalist, composer, and singer professionally known as NANA AMA.

In 2021, she was honoured by the 3Music Awards Women’s Brunch for her contributions to Ghana music over the past decades. She performed on songs like Okomfour Kwaadee’s Abro Ne Bayie, Lord Kenya’s Medo which earned four awards including ”Song Of The Year” at the Ghana Music Awards in 2002. She shared with us her new song “AFRICA BOOGIE (DI ASA) FT STRONGMAN.
