Every now and then, one comes across a good musical piece which just easily eases itself into the mind.
Before you realize, you will be nodding your head to the beats and ultimately find yourself singing along even when the initial intention was not to study how to sing the music.
A relatively new artist with a new single, Akesse’s Crazy Love has been receiving a generous amount of airplay especially on Accra based Sunny FM since it was released. He has two other singles from his upcoming album but Crazy Love seems to be a favorite.
The song, “Crazy Love” talks about the abundant love Christ shows to the singer and how He (Christ) treats him. It further talks about how The Lord constantly demonstrates His love through all ways and
the fact that God’s love towards him is beyond human comprehension. In effect, that kind of love is a crazy kind of love where despite the misgivings and shortfalls of humans, God still shows love in all ways.
Set in a catchy reggae tune, this song can seriously get you nodding your head from the rhythm and composition from the start to the end. There is another voice on the track which does a beautiful adlibbing in patois. His name is Qhakra.
Akesse has been singing as far as he can remember. During the various Children’s Day Celebrations in his Church during his childhood days, he was usually made to sing solos, most of which he got standing
ovations for. In Kumasi High School, he eventually became the leader of the school’s Scripture Union Choir. He headed a non denominational choir, Voice of the Spirit in Kumasi before being admitted to the
KNUST where he eventually became the Music Director of the PENSA Choir.
A songwriter who has additionally mastered his skill in that, he has written a number of songs and has already shared stages with such renowned artists as Rev Helen Yawson, Atta Boafo, Joe Mettle, Nii Okai, Joe Mettle and Pastor Joe Beecham.
Akesse is currently working on his maiden album titled “Songs In The Night” and has already released two other tracks from the album.
