preach a simple message that sayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s that genuine Ghanaian music still lives…
and the very best of music can be found right here in GhanaÃ¢â‚¬Â was how the guitar-addictive Kwabena set the ball rolling on Allo TigoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s special segment dubbed Ã¢â‚¬Å“UNCOVERÃ¢â‚¬Â.
The award winning, recording, soulful, highlife-song monster had a difficult 2009 surrounded by a lot of media fracas and controversial personal issues. In his words Ã¢â‚¬Å“2009 was a difficult year for me and my career but my fans are still behind me. In the first week I released Ã¢â‚¬Å“BibiniÃ¢â‚¬Â it was just phenomenalÃ¢â‚¬Â The remarkable art has been in the industry for the past four years and has three albums to his credit. The latest one is called Ã¢â‚¬Å“BibiniÃ¢â‚¬Â and is a 9-tracked album and has the likes of Ã¢â‚¬Å“BibiniÃ¢â‚¬Â, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Dadie AnomaÃ¢â‚¬Â, Ã¢â‚¬Å“JealousyÃ¢â‚¬Â Si abotereÃ¢â‚¬Â and a special one with Okyeame Kwame called Ã¢â‚¬ËœAde3 rekye Ade3 resawÃ¢â‚¬Â. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Just imagine Kwame rapping on an adowa beat and that is a very special song to me.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Kwabena believes that his songs take some time to sink into the mind of people. Ã¢â‚¬Å“It took like 8 months for Ã¢â‚¬Å“Do NobiÃ¢â‚¬Â to start making waves and getting where it is today and I expect Ã¢â‚¬Å“BibiniÃ¢â‚¬Â to take a while to sink into the minds of Ghanaians.Ã¢â‚¬Â He concluded by disregarding completely the assertion that music was language effective. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Music has nothing to do with language. Music is rhythmÃ¢â‚¬Â. He seeks to take music to a stage where no one has ever dreamt of. Ã¢â‚¬Å“To me IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m still in the preparatory stages.
I have only been in the industry for four years and have three albums, but I have so much to doÃ¢â‚¬Â he signed off with a wonderful rendition of his own hit melody Ã¢â‚¬Å“Do NobiÃ¢â‚¬Â. The Ã¢â‚¬Å“AsoÃ¢â‚¬Â silky mastermind has a new video for a song on his new album called Ã¢â‚¬Å“Dadie AnomaÃ¢â‚¬Â which is a perfect blend of Ewe and Twi, a classic masterpiece and arguably the finest video to come out from the camp of Kwabena Kwabena.
Kwabena is not a classic video oriented art and this comes as a little shocking. He concluded by showing his appreciation to personalities who had contributed to his success.
