Published

on

Nicknamed an “ambassador of modern African music” (beehype), Ghanaian singer/songwriter, Delasi brings to the stage his signature African rhythm fused with Hiphop and Soul. His smooth rich voice and music themes will draw you into his introspective world.

Delasi’s many talents manifest in prophetic and conscious artistry ranging from energetic performances, youth development workshops, community activism, and, most importantly, his music. However, his social and political consciousness extends beyond his music. He has served as guest lecturer at the University of Ghana, gave voice to local Accra youth to write and perform songs about the issues impacting their lives through the “Unheard Voices” project, and led similar workshops in Kenya through the US Department of State.

His most recent project, #ThoughtJourney, is a fusion of traditional Ewe music, soul, and hip-hop from the modern African male consciousness that has been hailed by Afropop Worldwide, Pulse, and Up Nairobi, among others. He has also performed on international stages including the HIFA Festival in Zimbabwe and the Arbeitsamt Sommerfest in Berlin. He recently completed a month long plus art residency in Morocco where he performed at the Alhaouz Festival.

On the Saturday, 20th October 8pm, he will be performing live at Alliance Francaise Accra and will be supported by the funky Ghanaian trio Senku band. Also performing will be the Songstress Yaaba ‘Girl with the Golden Voice’ and Ghana’s gifted trumpeter and saxophonist Peter Somuah.

Brace yourself for a night of delectable music!

YOUNG GHANAIAN MP ASPIRANT REVEALS HIS MARIJUANA ADDICTION

Published

on

The use of marijuana has become a growing issue in the Ghanaian community with a lot of prominent people calling for legalization. Notably among them are the late UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and Ghanaian Actor John Dumelo. It is however unclear whether they are championing the medicinal use of marijuana or supporting it for mere smoking purposes.
John Asogonnde otherwise known as John Hermit is a former record label executive who is currently aspiring to become one of Ghana's youngest lawmakers in the 2020 general elections. He recently made a shocking revelation about his addiction to marijuana on his social media platforms stating that he was addicted to the drug for several years but has finally realized the terrible effects of smoking the herb leading to his decision to quit once and for all. He culled his experience together into a book titled "Breaking Up With Mary Jane" which he hopes will be able to inspire other smokers to quit as well.

Read the post below.

" I've been a chronic smoker for about six (6) years. I finally took a bold step to let go of Marijuana which in this book has been referred to as a lady named Mary Jane. I was obsessed with her, I loved her and thought she brought me so much joy and happiness. I remember swearing I was going to smoke for the rest of my life. Gratefully, it's a different story now. Marijuana isn't really good for our wellbeing. I hope this book is able to inspire someone and help them abandon our favorite friend and lover Mary Jane. Although quitting marijuana use may seem impossible, I wish to help people understand they can do it without necessarily compromising their contemporary litestyle.
Launching "Breaking Up With Mary Jane" on my birthday - Friday 26th April "You can follow him via his social media platforms @iamjohnhermit on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more updates on this great book.

Fuse ODG Defines Africa At The Launch Of His “New Africa Nation” Album In Ghana.

Published

on

Ghanaian UK-based Fuse ODG started off with a song off his "New Africa Nation" Album succeeded by his club banger “Million Pound Girl” before a catalogue of his popular hits including "Boa Me" featuring R2bees and Ed Sheeran, "Anteena".

Ghanaian music fans are a forgiving lot. Annoy them all you want for as long as you deliver what was promised in the first agreement, they will turn up in droves and party until drop, as witnessed at the launch of “New Africa Nation” album concert show, Thursday night, hosted at the +233 Jazz Bar & Grill, in Accra and headlined by Ghanaian award-winning Afrobeats icon, Fuse ODG.

The event accumulated the presence of some well defined Ghanaian personalities including, Legendary Highlife musician, Gyedu Blay Ambulley, who collaborated with the Afrobeats performer, Fuse ODG to unleash an escalating performance, leaving an eternal memory on their minds.

Multiple awards winning Ghanaian rap genre of music artiste, Sarkodie's presence was felt amidst the launch of the ostentatious album, "New Africa Nation". He eulogised the Ghanaian UK-based for leading a temerarious and audacious heed to avert the brainwashed African diasporas, conniving it with a suprise performance of the "Down On One" tune.

The show primitively commenced with some distinctive words of poetry from a talented young Nigerian Ghanaian-based Writer/poet, Yom Nfojoh popularly known as Yom The Poet. Yom gave a magnificent taste of true african rich tales and great wise sayings, made to become something spectacular you have neither seen nor heard before.

Musician, Kojo Taylor also got a slot to deliver his artistry prowess, as he kept the atmosphere on a circle while patrons were waiting for the main act, Fuse ODG to mount stage.
Revelers at the show grooved their sweat off when the Ghanaian celebrated performing act took to stage at exactly 22:00 hours as he gave a splendid performance on stage backed by an electrifying and live band music which was virtually enjoyed by all patrons who trooped in to witness the Afro fusion and  African artiste. Fuse ODG and his band started off from the outset with songs popular here and the crowd was ruptured in ecstasy. 

The 31 year old Ghanaian singer's dancers burst onto the stage with such unmatched energy, demonstrating that versatility which has made dancing an essential and remarkable act on the minds of Africans.

Fuse' performance on the night compelled the European folks, including the British nationals to adjust to flamy environment created by the indigenous fans of the music star, as he performed most songs on his new album.

Fuse ODG was on a mission to pacify the storm he caused and one way of endearing himself to his indigenous fans. He educated the patrons on religion, urging them to entrust in themselves to achieve a successful life, as he noted that there is God in every human.

Although the musical accomplishments of Afrobeat pioneer, the Grammy and MOBO award-winning star's special assignment is much bigger than his music. Now a global star, he is using his platform to rebuild the image of Africa, both within the continent and throughout the world.

Amidst his performance at the launch of the "New Nation Album", he explained that, the album’s concept was to provide a platform to showcase Africa in a positive light, to develop a love for Africa, and also develop self-love for Africans and how to take Africa beyond aid and “mobilize the sleeping giant of the Diaspora”.

Fuse elaborates on the need for more events like TINA, explaining that, their mission is to develop a love for the continent, so people don’t just give them handouts, but rather they come and enjoy themselves, they come and see an investment opportunity.
