Singer and dancer, Ebenezer Asare known in showbiz as Slim Buster says “I left Ghana because of the power crisis. I started having problems with electricity, I was spending so much money on fuel because some of us can’t sleep without lights. I was filling my huge plant in addition to my two cars so it was a bit too much for me’’.

Speaking with Sammy Flex in London, the ‘Masanaba’ hit maker made his reason for leaving Ghana to the UK clear that, it was because of the power crisis (dumsor) and has promised to return in February 2017.

Slim Buster says that, dancehall and azonto songs have taken over the indigenous music due to his absence and his return to Ghana is mainly to revitalize the ‘dead’ highlife and hiplife music. In his own words, “I’m coming back to see if we can really progress with highlife and hiplife. Now look at hiplife, it’s really struggling…. Dancehal and Azonta have taken over.”

Slim Buster added that though most of these Ghanaian artistes are at their peak, there is something missing which he expects the celebrated musicians to do but nobody has been able to do. He continued that “I’ve to go back and fill that gap and speed them up. When I speed them up they will noticed that yes the old man is back, let’s follow him’’

Slim released the album, Masanaba, which was an instant hit In 2000,and later followed it with Eye Fe Keke in 2001, which featured the track, Mina. He came out with Baby In 2002, which won an award for best video at the 2002 Ghana Music Awards.
