MOF Music artiste, and Ghana’s saxophone star, Mizter Okyere celebrated his birthday on the 19th of August and makes it remarkable with a repackaged version of a popular Kojo Antwi song, Dadie Anoma.

The soul healer as he is affectionately called reminded himself of the importance of life and God’s goodness.

“I remind myself every year on this special day how blessed I am to have been given another year to experience the wonders of this beautiful world and the lovely talents! God is good!” – He said.

This rendition of “Dadie Anoma”, interwoven with raps by Nana Nketia, takes the smooth course and gradually peaks to the dancefloor mode.

Not long ago Mizter Okyere gave fans excerpts of a live sax studio performance of Obrafour’s Odo and this in addition seemingly signifies he’s bent on reliving memories with his craft.
