Although Mensah acknowledged that highlife was confronting modern issues, such as changes in rhythm and what some saw to be a shallow lyrical content among more recent performers, she also emphasised the genre’s comeback, crediting sites such as TikTok for part of its spike in popularity.

But Lucky Mensah underlined how crucial it is to embrace innovation while maintaining the spirit of highlife.

He cited the profound lyrical content and rhythmic skill of highlife veterans like Ampadu, Oheneba Kisi, Kofi B, and Ofori Amposah as examples of how younger artists should aspire to learn from them.
