Sound engineer, Ephraim has launched a project that will benefit new artistes in the Ghanaian music industry.
Dubbed Ephraim’s 100, it’s a project to support and help up and coming artistes.
The basis of the project is to record a full-mastered song for a minimum of 100 acts throughout a period of a month.
This novelty came up as a result of lots of calls and pleas from lots of new acts through social, media and other platforms.
In a bid to maintain the standards already set by Ephraim Musiq Studios, the new acts would be required to pick up a form for 10 cedis at various outlets, which they would have to complete and return with a demo CD.
The period for picking and completing forms will be 2 weeks after which the submitted forms and demos will be analyzed and acts short-listed.
Management will then contact selected applicants to inform them on the recording schedules.
• Artistes are supposed to report to studio on for recording sessions.
• Money for recording (200 cedis) should be ready on or before the ﬁrst recording session.
• Each artiste has a maximum recording session of 2 hours a day and 5 recording sessions to ﬁnish the song
• No eatng, drinking or smoking in the studio
• Artistes would not be allowed to sample any other song, all songs recorded should be original.
Proceeds from the project will go to a management contract for two acts that will be picked based on a poll on Ephraim’s Facebook fan page.
The contract will be over the period of 6 months and will include recording of 5 songs, a photo shoot and social media promotion.
