New Music: Okyeame Kwame Features Afriyie On New Song ‘Bra’ [Audio]

Published

on

Ahead of the release of the much-awaited ‘Made in Ghana’ album, Okyeame Kwame has outdoored another single off the album.

Titled ‘Bra’, the song features Afriyie of Wutah fame.

‘Bra’ is a mid tempo highlife song that talks about yearning for the love of one you abandoned.

It touches on the theme of leaving the one you love just to realise you cannot do without them.

In the song, the singer finds himself in quandary of letting his lover go – and at the same time, wishing she stays. He even tells her he may hop onto the next available woman if she decides not to return.

Obviously, this is an effusion of love riddled with confused emotions – typical of most people in relationships.

The song is a perfect blend of Okyeame’s thought-provoking rap and Afriyie’s glossy vocal delivery.

This comes after the release of the theme song ‘Made in Ghana’ last year.

Okyeame is preparing to release the 10 track album this year with tours to regions which each of the songs represent.

The ‘Made in Ghana’ album also features Kurl Songs, Kwan Pa band, Wiyaala, Yaa Yaa, Atongo Simba and Fancy Gadam.

Others are Wulomei, Kidi, Ebo Taylor, Feli Nuna and Kuami Eugene.

The songs represent the 10 regions and their cultures, bringing rhythms together through music, videos and paraphernalia.

‘Made In Ghana’ project is aimed at inculcating a sense of national pride, foster music tourism and expose indigenous music fusion.

BEDFORD-TEXAS, UNITED STATES of AMERICA (www.georgebritton.com) - Multiple awards-winning Ghanaian Gospel musician, and manager at Reverb rehearsal & recording studio in Accra, Joseph Oscar Mettle professional known as Minister Joe Mettle has, in an interview on an American base Daystar Tv Network, revealed the secret behind his supposed to be tribal mark on his cheek.

According to the Chief Executive Officer (C.E.O) of Joe Mettle Ministries (JMM), growing up as a child from a family with no knowledge about the Christian Religion, he contracted certain health disorders which were not medically inclined, diseases believed to be orchestrated by evil spirits and were compelled to confront spiritual doctors who use sharp tools to cut his chin, with the objective of curing the ailment and protecting him against other evil spirits.

However, he revealed that, contrary to those confrontations, his health was never restored. According to the "Bo No Ni" hit maker, the pain and disease persisted till he accepted Jesus Christ, explaining that, God miraculous healed him from all trauma encounted after he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and personal savior through a crusade that was staged in his place of residence.

Revealing the motivation behind his "Wind of Revival" album in an interview with Jonathan and Suzy Lamb on the The Green Room show, the 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) "Artiste Of The Year" stated that, his 5th professional studio project was borne out of the inspiration garnered from the book of Acts, about how the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
