The Hiplife’ Documentary Is Better Than Nexflix’s Afrobeats Documentary
Reggie Rockstone, a renowned Ghanaian rapper who paved the way for a generation
of rappers to come after him, has voiced his displeasure at the disrespect shown
to him by Ghanaians who have disregarded his contribution to the country’s music industry.
The irate hiplife grandfather said during an interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM’s Daybreak
Hitz that he had produced a documentary on his musical career called “Living The Hiplife,”
but had been unsuccessful in getting it aired for Ghanaians to witness.

He claims to have contacted many media outlets on several occasions, but for one reason
or another, they have declined to provide such crucial information.
Reggie also said that the documentary was produced by a professor in New York City,
who also prepared a book to explain the history of the Hiplife music genre but was rejected
despite his repeated attempts to have it shown.
He submitted this remark in response to an Afrobeat documentary on Netflix produced by
Nigerian lawyer and filmmaker Ayo Shonaiya, in which he discussed the background of the Afrobeat music genre and its true creators.
Reggie Rockstone, who seemed quite upset, said that his “Living The Hiplife” documentary is superior to the Afrobeat documentary despite the fact that his own people had ignored it.
