FEATURES Burger Highlife Was the Sound of the 80s Ghanaian Diaspora By Megan Iacobini de Fazio June 24, 2022 We knew we couldnt destroy our roots, our highlife music, but what we were trying to do was to come up with something new, something different, says Ghanaian musician Wilson Boateng over the phone from his home in London.

Boateng and Asafo-Agyei are reminiscing about a transformative period in Ghanaian music that, between the 1980s and 1990s, was marked by a move away from traditional highlife towards a new modern sound that embraced the latest technologies, incorporating West African melodies with synthesizers, disco, boogie, and funk.
