VRMG Boss, Edem Announces Edem Fest’19.

Published

on

VOLTA REGION, GHANA - Ghanaian rap recording artist, and entertainer christened Denning Edem Hotor, who is professionally known for his musicianship as Edem (@iamedem), has revealed the date and venue for the 2019 edition of the most attended annual outdoor musical concert tagged, "Edem Fest"

Schedule to occur on 1st November, 2019 and to be hosted at the Aborigines Beach Resort, Edemfest was conceived as part of brand Edem’s Corporate Social Responsibility, as an avenue to remind Ghanaians of an illustrious heritage as a people, and a wake-up call for them to preserve the very culture that makes them unique.

This year's edition of the festival is aimed marking the "Year Of Return" initiative by Government of Ghana, as the Volta Regime Music Group (VRMG) boss also has the objective of inculcating a sense of Pan-Africanism on the minds of the diaspora who will be touring Ghana.

This year's edition of the festival will roll out to be the third since its inception. A day-long event highlighted by a grand musical concert, Edemfest consists of various activities catering to art, culture, tourism, and business. Previous editions were held on the Keta High Street, and Aborigines, with the core aim of raising awareness on illegal fishing and tackling sand winning, and open defecation respective.

The event will be attended by over 20,000 patrons —double of the number they recorded last year. It is clear that Edemfest 2019, aside reconnecting Ghanaians to a wonderful heritage and reviving confidence in their potential, will go a long way towards contributing to the economic development of the area, as well as fostering budding talent from there.

Edem’s career began modestly — pounding on school desks and sleeping on studio floors. And so, he considers it a great blessing to reach the heights that he has, and to possess an influential voice. Whenever he sit to reflect on his journey thus far, his heart brims with joy, but at the same time, he reminded of the responsibilities a person in his position automatically assumes —one to leave his society better than he met it. Undoubtedly, music is a powerful tool, and his music has constantly served as a great platform to share his story, and inspire fellow youth who nurse hopes of a better life.

Edem appeared on Voice of America where he talked about his “Nyedzilo” video, which features Mavin Records’ very own Reekado Banks, and his videos such as “The One”, featuring Sway that talks about Africa’s liberation and his award-winning song Koene that were previously featured on Music Time Africa by Heather Maxwell and Vincent Makori.

In 2006, he released his first radio hit single “Witine Woshi”, which translates as “we came and they ran”. It gained much popularity in his region and added to his underground reputation. That year, he got together officially with The Last Two Entertainment Group, headed by the hit maker Hammer of The Last Two. This label is responsible for artists including Obrafour in 1999, Tinny and the madman Kwaw Kesse in 2005.

Edem appeared at live shows, significantly as the opening act for the John Legend concert at the International Conference Center in Accra in 2000. Before his debut album, he collaborated with other acts, especially with Obrafour. He went on a national tour with Obrafour.
