Okyeame Kwame Makes History With ‘Made in Ghana’ Album Launch
The much-awaited ‘Made in Ghana’ album by Okyeame Kwame has been launched.
The launch which took place on Saturday, April 20, 2019 at +233 Jazz Bar and Grill saw spectacular performances from Okyeame Kwame, Kuami Eugene, Kidi, Ayesem, Feli Nuna, Afriyie, Abiana, King Ralph, Trigmatic and Wiyaala.
This is the first time in the history of Ghana a musician has put together an album which is aimed at promoting local trade and nationalism by highlighting the virtues of all groups of people in Ghana across the various regions and Ghana’s heritage.
The ambience at the venue exuded great sense of national pride.
The programme started with a performance by the Nsroma Dance Group. They welcomed patrons to the venue with traditional songs and dance types that depict a variety of Ghana's culture.
Okyeame Kwame and Feli Nuna charged the atmosphere with a performance of 'Melowo,' a song done in an 'agbadza' vein - producing a mélange of Feli's soothing singing voice and Okyeame Kwame's rapturous rap vibes.
He returned with Wutah Afriyie for the song, 'Bra.' After the duet, Afriyie did a couple of his old songs including 'Bronya.'
This was followed by another performance with Kuami Eugene. They sang the song that represents the Eastern Region - 'E No Be My Matter' after which Kuami continued with some of his hits.
Representing the Upper West Region were the Lioness of Africa, Wiyaala and King Ralph who also performed 'Dia Tina' with Okyeame Kwame. This session saw display of awesome artistry with a lot of energy.
Atongo Zimba could not be present to do 'Bolgatanga Girl' because he had other engagements outside the country. However, promising vocalist, Abiana perfectly complemented Okyeame Kwame's act on that song with her exceptional vocal delivery.
On the night, Trigmatic reaffirmed his resolve to prove to the world that he was ready to experiment with rhythms that hold prospects for the global marketability of his songs. Unlike his previous commercial and rap induced songs, he did 'Where We Dey Go' and other thought-provoking Afro-songs which did not only got patrons to muse over the lyrics but to also hail him for his stupendous performance.
After performances from Kidi and Ayesem, Okyeame Kwame mounted the stage again to entertain the fans with more of his new and old songs.
Kwame proved on the night that he has really honed his craft in the music trade over the years. The 43 year-old musician who was on stage over 4 hours, was able to thrill the audience, making them feel part of the show. Undoubtedly, Kwame is not just a good rapper, but one of the best performers in the country.
Other songs on the 'Made in Ghana' album are Yenzima ft Fancy Gadam and Nkunim ft Feli Finest & Senku, ‘1956’ ft Kurl Songs & Ayesem, ‘Kpa’ ft. Wulomei.
The songs represent the various regions in terms of concept and the artistes featured.
The programme, chaired by Kwame Baah Acheamfour was also attended by the CEO of Ohene Media, Abraham Ohene Djan and the drummer of the late Nigerian Afrobeat legend Fella Kuti, Jojo Kuo, who traveled to Ghana just to be part of the memorable event.
Jojo, joined the carpet band for the programme, Hy-Skuul Band later, to display his drumming skills.
The ‘Made in Ghana' album comes with a chocolate, Ghana flag and a piece of kente cloth – strong statement made by Okyeame Kwame to cement the ‘Made in Ghana’ agenda.
Music lovers can now have a taste of 10 classic tracks (2 bonus songs) on the 'Made in Ghana' album via the various online music stores.
The ‘Made in Ghana’ album launch was sponsored by Niche Cocoa, Grand Casamora Hotel, Ahead Media and Joy prime TV.

YOUNG GHANAIAN MP ASPIRANT REVEALS HIS MARIJUANA ADDICTION
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.
