Okyeame Kwame Launches First Single Off Made In Ghana Album In Cape Coast



Celebrated Ghanaian musician, Okyeame Kwame has launched the first single off his upcoming album ‘Made in Ghana’, in Cape Coast.

The launch took place on Friday, 28th September, 2018 at the Chief’s Palace in Cape Coast.
He also paid a courtesy call on the Municipal Chief Executive (CEO) of Cape Coast, Ernest Arthur and introduced the ‘Made in Ghana’ project to him.

Later in the evening, Okyeame Kwame met with his fans at Sikakrom in Cape Coast to entertain them with a performance of his songs.

The new song titled ‘Made in Ghana’ features Kidi, Ebo Taylor and Dan Grahl.

‘Made in Ghana’ which happens to be the theme song for the yet-to-be-released ‘Made in Ghana’ album, talks about the pride of the country. It mentions the need to promote the various aspect of Ghanaian culture.

According to Okyeame Kwame, the purpose of the ‘Made In Ghana’ project is to imbue a sense of national pride, foster music tourism and expose indigenous music fusion.

After receiving a copy of the song, the Paramount Chief of the Oguaa Traditional Area, Osabarima Kwesi Atta II, urged Kwame to use his brand as a tourism ambassador to re-orient negative perceptions about musicians.

“Being a tourism ambassador means you represent the country. There are certain wrong perceptions about musicians that need to be changed. And I believe it is a great task on you now to use your influence to change some of these perceptions,” he stated.

The upcoming album also features Afriyie Wutah, Kurl Songs, Kwan Pa band, Wiyaala, Yaa Yaa, Atongo Simba and Fancy Gadam.

Others are Wulomei, Feli Nuna and Kuami Eugene.

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

Each song will be launched at a location in the region it represents.

As a tourism ambassador, Kwame would also use shots of historical and tourist locations in the various regions for his music videos.

He has also created a pyjamas line called ‘OK Impressions’ designed with African fabric, as part of his bid to promote Ghanaian culture and tourism through the arts.

The entire album will finally be released on December 14, 2018.

Delasi: LIVE! On October 20th At Alliance Francaise, Accra



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!

Ghanaian-American Emmanuel Mensah Posthumously Named ‘Local Hero’ By NYC Red Cross



“Emmanuel Mensah was simply an amazing Private First Class (Pfc) of the United States (US) army. It is so honoring and equally humbling for me to receive such a huge recognition on his behalf from the Red Cross. May his soul rest in peace.”

This was said Catherine Cudjoe who had just accepted a posthumous award for Pfc. Emmanuel Mensah from the American Red Cross in Greater New York (NY).

Catherine spoke to this writer barely a week after she had accepted the award on October 10, 2018, at The American Red Cross Local Hero Award gala themed ‘Heroes Among Us’, at the Ziegfeld Ballroom in NY. “He will be greatly missed, but he will equally be greatly loved for his valor and bravery,” she said about Pfc. Mensah.

She also thanked CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield from whom she accepted Private Mensah’s award, and “the entire Diaspora African community of NY, and well-wishers for their overwhelming support.”

Army Pfc. Mensah received the award due to his act of selflessness and bravery when in December 2017, while visiting his family in the Bronx, NY building located at 2363 Prospect Avenue, Belmont, in which he also lived [on the third floor].

During the visit, he noticed a fire breakout raging uncontrollably, and sprung into the part of the building with the fire from where he led neighbors to safety. Though 13 lives were claimed by the fire [his included], Mensah’s choice to put the lives of others before his saved four lives through his singular act of bravery.

“I still can’t think where he got the courage to do what he did. His actions will inspire a generation, including myself,” Catherine said, as she went on to explain that father of Pfc. Mensah, Kwabena Mensah, on behalf of their family “asked me to receive this honor on behalf of their son from the Red Cross ‘Heroes Among Us’.”

Prior to this Red Cross honor, the late Pfc. Mensah was posthumously awarded the highest award for valor outside of combat — the Soldier’s Medal, he also received the NY State Medal for Valor. Born May 11, 1991, in Accra, Ghana, the Private also received American citizenship in 2017 after he was brought to the US in 2012 by his father.

Catherine on behalf of the Mensah family told this writer that the family was thankful to Josh Lockwood — NY region Red Cross CEO, the entire Red Cross, the respective event sponsors including Macy’s Inc., Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase & Co., and among others Ogilvy and IBM.

According to Catherine who is also President of the National Ghana Parade Council (NGPC), the NGPC and the Ghanaian Community in NY will hold a thanksgiving vigil in the Bronx, on December 27, 2018, at 6 PM. “It will be in remembrance of the 6 Ghanaians among the 13 that lost their lives in the December 27, 2017 fire,” she calmly explained.

Shatta Wale “Reigns” On “After The Storm” As 19,000 Plus Filled The Fantasy Dome.



The honcho of the Shatta Movement, Charles Nii Armah, known as Shatta Wale yesterday 13th October 2018 single handedly filled the Fantasy Dome as he launched his Reign Album.

Amidst all the hate, “beef” and controversy surrounding his album, the album has been trending for a week and rose to enviable positions on charts world wide before the official launch yesterday. The Shatta Movement boss shocked Ghana as he wrote his name in the stars with his album launch which will go down in History as the biggest gathering ever seen for an album launch.

Unconventional Shatta palpably was at his best yesterday, known as the man with surprises. He did not disappoint one bit. Oh yeah! He delivered above and beyond our expectations.

The first surprise was when Shatta Wale who has been written off when it comes to live performance melded his singing and the play of the band beautifully to thrill fans who sang every line from start till end.

Another surprise of the night came when the Dancehall King attempted to sell the first copy of the album for a GHC 100,000 but to his surprise, Ghanaian businessman known as SLG bought the album for GHC 150,000.

He later during his back to back performances attempted to dash a Sarkodie fan one of his Gold chains. I guess that was to tell Sark he is not an “Alumi King” as speculated.

Shatta throughout his performance took swipes and threw shades at colleagues and people who are considered his “enemies” in the industry and try to sabotage his good works.

Just as we thought we have had enough of the Dance Hall kings pile of surprises, the unexpected happened.

Shatta Wale brought on stage his children during he and his baby mamas performance and proposed marriage to Shatta Michy his fiancé who became his baby mama and now soon to be Mrs Nii Armah. As to when the two will walk down the aisle, we have no idea, but will update you as we lay hands on the gist.

Ghanaians have seen great musicians who have lived their time, but from what I saw yesterday, nothing like the Shatta Wale of our time has been seen yet. Oh, I can confidently say he is the greatest of this generation and will “Reign” on.

Congratulations to Shatta and his team, not forgetting the Shatta Movement who made yesterday a memorable one. Make sure you grab a copy of the album in support of his music and works.
