Channel O Africa VJ and rapper J-Town on Friday night launched his debut album ‘Bright Lights & Dark Shades’. The event, which was held at the Golden Tulip Hotel, Accra also coincided with the rapper’s 30th birthday. In attendance were several top Ghanaian celebrities including Sarkodie, D-Black, E.L, Jon Germain, Caroline Sampson, Asem, Richie, Deborah Vanessa, Chase, M.anisfest and many others. Highlights included performances from J-Town and his H.O.O.D Entertainment label-signee, Screech; and the cutting of a birthday cake by J-Town and his family, which included his daughter and his mother.
‘Bright Lights & Dark Shades’ is not a great album only because it belongs to a talented musician such as J. Town, but because it features other artistes and performers from different genres of music. The album features Choc City’s Ice Prince, Ghana Music Award Nominee; Raquel, Sarkodie, Christopher Steenkamp and Ben Ameh just to name a few. Bright Lights & Dark Shades presents hit songs “Bad Gyal” and “Oomale” with the latter featuring Samini; both of which have received major airplay.
