Rebecca Acheampong, aka Becca, who appeared on the music scene with the hit song You Lied To Me a year ago is set to take over the music scene again with her hit single Daa Ke Daa.
BeccaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s single which is one of the tracks on her second album of 12 bouncing tracks is already enjoying appreciable airplay.
Her second album, according to a source close to her management team, would be launched in March 20 this year at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Accra.
Within a short period on the music scene Becca has demonstrated to Ghanaians her potentials by staging spectacular live performances in Ghana and beyond.
Ã¢â‚¬ËœDaa Ke DaaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ which is the soundtrack of Sparrow ProductionÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s movie the Ã¢â‚¬ËœScornedÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ is expected to be shown on certain TV stations in Ghana and South Africa. The hit-single is one of the best, if not the best, songs on BeccaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s second album.
In a chat with Beatwaves Becca indicated that her kind of music was Afro-pop with a touch of R&B, Hip-hop, Soka, Dancehall and even Reggae.
When asked whether she believed Ghanaians were in love with her music, her response was: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Ghanaians really love my music, especially a song like Ã¢â‚¬ËœYou Lied To MeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m kind of marveled right now because my fans have accepted the song including the ones that are out like Ã¢â‚¬ËœHey BaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and Ã¢â‚¬ËœSugarÃ¢â‚¬â„¢. Fans really love it; from children to adults. I think itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s doing quite well.Ã¢â‚¬Â
She told Beatwaves she dreams of doing collaborations with stars like Daddy Lumba, John Legend, Beyonce among others and Ã¢â‚¬Å“I will like to do a full album with Hugh Masekela and The Black MumbasÃ¢â‚¬Â.
She featured Hugh Masekela, a great musician from South Africa on her track Ã¢â‚¬ËœI love youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ on her first album.
BeccaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s record label, EKB Records and Hugh MasekelaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Chisa Records in South Africa collaborated in the promotion of her first album on the international market.
