Ace broadcaster and emcee, Kwasi Kyei Darkwah (KKD) has lauded the personality and creative works of highlife musician, Bisa Kdei.

In a beautifully woven poetic piece posted on his Facebook timeline, KKD could not hide his admiration for the artiste, songwriter and music producer.

His Royal Blackness commended Bisa Kdei for his humility and lyrical dexterity saying, “This fine artist continues a great tradition observed by EK's Band, Onyontofohene Nana Kwame Ampadu, Agya Koo Nimo, The Maestro Kojo Antwi, Amakye Dede, Daddy Lumba, Ofori Amponsah, Daasebre Gyamenah, Kwabena Kwabena and more over the last 6 decades to unite, instruct, comfort, humour, excite and inspire us.”

Bisa Kdei, for some time now, has dominated the highlife scene by releasing songs for the listening pleasure of music lovers. His songs, Mansa and Brother Brother has won many hearts with some industry watchers routing for him to be crowned Artiste of the Year at the 2016 Ghana Music Awards.

In August 2015, veteran highlife artiste, Aseibu Amanfi told Abrantepa on Radio Univers’ Brunch2Lunch that he was amazed at the ‘soothing’ voice of Bisa Kdei and would like to meet him.

“…there is this youngster who sang ‘Odo Carpenter’. Tell him I want to have a chat with him. I like his voice. He has a very nice voice,” he said.

With all these commendations, KKD hopes and prays Bisa Kdei will remain focused.

It is our prayer that the young will cut tributaries that will be enlarged and entrenched to match and surpass the great rivers of old in world visibility,” a portion of his piece said.

Here is KKD’s post unedited:

Celebrating African Artistry: BISA K'DEI, Musician.
"His cool, capability and composure
Humility and Ingenuity
Learning through each exposure
Beautiful rhythms and melodies
His hearty bow to tradition
His respect and spirituality
Invokes a sense of déjà vu
When artists were driven by creativity

The fusion of Highlife, Kpanlogo and Afro Pop
The spirited culture of Wulomei and Dzadzeloi
The lyrical stature of The Maestro Kojo Antwi and earthiness of EK's Band 
Come together in his music as a grand ploy
To move your parents and children; man, woman, girl and boy
To dance like there is no tomorrow
To dance through our sorrow and moments of joy

A proud musician of Ghanaian heritage he is
Sings his life songs with humility and peace
Lights up the dance floor at classy parties
And puts worrying minds of the hustlers at ease
From his maiden dance tune Azonto Ghost
Through his ground-breaking truth Metanfo
To his thanksgiving anthem Give it to Baba
And now his retro Brother Brother to Mansa
This fine artist continues a great tradition
Observed by EK's Band, Onyontofohene Nana Kwame Ampadu
Agya Koo Nimo, The Maestro Kojo Antwi, Amakye Dede, Daddy Lumba
Ofori Amponsah, Daasebre Gyamenah, Kwabena Kwabena and more over the last 6 decades
To unite, instruct, comfort, humour, excite and inspire us
A tradition whose torch bearers have blazed a fine trail
Created a big river that flows downstream 
For the young and energetic to sail smoothly to new realizations
To alter the existing to better face the onslaught of foreign competition

It is our prayer that the young will cut tributaries that will be enlarged and entrenched to match and surpass the great rivers of old in world visibility
The roots, the source, shall however never be lost if the fruits remember who and what did what before them
Tributes from each tributary shall be paid to the river(s) out of which each flowed
So too the fruits that nourish us this day must never be tossed aside in recognition of the maiden sources but celebrated side by side and given their due applause and pedestal amidst the shining lights.
Each devoted, accomplished artist who serves us meritoriously through song, performance and upliftment deserves a glorious place in OUR CULTURAL STORY.

Peace and blessings to BISA K'DEI for the joy and inspiration you bring to our nation, the diaspora and World Music.
God bless BISA K'DEI and all our dedicated musicians and devoted fans.
God bless; nothing less." -HRB
