Reports available indicate that Becca’s management which is currently planning a world class album launch to unleash her new album is considering several venues for the upcoming historic launch.
Becca, who has achieved a lot with just one album and more than three hit singles, wants to introduce something new in her music career and something Ghanaians have never seen before to match up with the kind of musical work on her new album.
Becca’s anticipated album launch has generated a lot of expectations among a large number of music fans and the general public. Those who have had the opportunity to listen to some of the songs on the album find it difficult to describe what to expect from the afro pop singer this year.
BEATWAVES gathered that Becca also has a good gospel song on the album and just an album to her credit, Becca has won for herself several awards in Ghana and Nigeria.
The sensational afro-pop artiste, who launched her musical career in Ghana on November 2007 with her maiden album ‘Sugar’, is among a few music stars who have been consistent on the music platform.
‘Sugar’, which has the hit song ‘You Lied To Me’, was once adjudged Record of the Year. ‘You Lied to Me’, which featured Kwabena Kwabena, also earned Becca four other nominations some years back.
Becca also featured Hugh Masekela, a great musician from South Africa on her track ‘I love You’.
This ethereal beauty has been hard at work on a follow-up album since her maiden ‘Sugar’ collection came out at the end of 2007. She has already put out singles meant for her new album- the very popular ‘Daa Ke Daa’, ‘Eti Sen’ and African Woman’.
Rick Bacchus, a US based music producer and artiste manager, who was in the country some time ago was impressed with Becca’s performance on the music scene so far, adding that although her talent is amazing, she was not getting the right opportunity to showcase it.
