musician Okyeame Kwame believes that the purpose of HIPLIFE REWIND was to elevate Reggie Rockstone.
The Rap Dacta asserts that the documentary's creators had a specific viewpoint they wanted to promote and present. He notes that the goal of the documentary was to demonstrate how the Hiplife genre has influenced young musicians. He spoke on 3Music TV’s Culture Daily morning show.
“I see that it has been curated to tell a certain storyline and every storyteller, videographer or director has an agenda before they go into making a documentary. Therefore whichever agenda BBC had was the guiding principles of the type of people they selected or the types of heroes they decided to project. So I see that they have curated the whole documentary to project Reggie Rockstone. There’s no doubt. And they found younger people who have been influenced by Hiplife and Reggie Rockstone to tell the story from a young person's perspective.”
Okyeame Kwame also said that the history of the genre encompasses more than what was depicted, making it impossible to condense the development of Hiplife in Ghana into a 30-minute narrative.
“I think the whole Hiplife story cannot be bottled into a 30-minute documentary. So they must make a first one which if they have chosen Reggie as the head of Hiplife there’s no question about that and inspire you and me to continue the story.”
The BBC's documentary, HIPLIFE REWIND, examines the history of Ghana's popular music genre. Since its publication, the documentary has received several criticisms from some key industry players.
