THE music industry has experienced a lot of vibrancy lately and that can be attributed to a number of young musicians who are doing some amazing things.

The likes of King Promise, KiDi, Kuami Eugene, Kwesi Arthur, Darkovibes among others have brought a new vibe to the industry which is exciting music lovers.

They have been topping charts and headlining events in Ghana and beyond and their exploits are making a lot of people proud and one of them is R&B musician, Ded Buddy.

For him, this new generation of artistes are lifting the image of the country high and deserve all the support of Ghanaians.

“The Bible admonishes us to give honour to those who deserve it and I think that these young boys, I mean KiDi, Kuami Eugene and the many others deserve our appreciation because they are doing very well.

"Personally, I’m very proud of them because they have proven that Ghana has a lot of talent and the available support will make them excel,” he told Showbiz recently.

Ded Buddy's admiration for Lynx Entertainment act KiDi, he said, was a compelling reason why he featured the young act on the remix of his hit single, Yebesa.

Many artistes complain about the lack of support from their own people but the Sogya singer told Showbiz he has been satisfied by the backing the young acts are enjoying.

“I think we are gradually accepting our own because if my records are right, Ghanaian songs have been reigning for years and that is quite commendable and a good sign for our music industry,” he said.

Notwithstanding his pride in the young artistes, Ded Buddy also called for support for old acts.

“I have said this before and I will use the opportunity to reiterate my point that people must not be in a hurry to retire old acts.

"Besides, the older the wine, the finer so I believe that experience also counts, we must give everyone an equal chance to perform,” he said.

Ded Buddy will be hosting his show dubbed "The Piano Concert" on Saturday, February 16 at the Alliance Francaise through which he hopes to reunite with his fans.
