Ghanaian R&B singer, model and actor, Eric Kwasi Okine Turkson, known in the showbiz industry as Ded Buddy, says he regrets leaving the music industry at the peak of his career.
In an interview with Hitz FM’s Showbiz Review, the R&B singer who re-launched his musical career in 2012 with a new showbiz name, Qweci, explained that he left Ghana for the States in the late 90s shortly after the release of his hit songs ‘Abofra Wisua’ and ‘Yebesa’ to further his education in music.
According to him, he believes that with what he has learnt whilst he was away, and with his style of music, he would make an impact on Ghana’s music industry very soon.
Ded Buddy, who is currently promoting Ghana’s tourism industry through music, disclosed that he is comfortable with the change, adding that his love for music always encourages him to make good music.
In early 2012, Qweci released his come back single in Ghana ‘Mipe Wo Saa’ (Love You The Way You Are) which became an instant radio hit with the video on TV stations across Africa and massive views on YouTube.
He was nominated for best Comeback Artiste of The Year at the YFM Loud In GH Awards. In November 2012, he released ‘So Gya’ (Light The Fire), a peace-driven song that helped spread the message of peace in Ghana during the presidential elections.
His second single ‘Mipe Wo Saa’ from his album ‘Ohemaa’ (Queen) was released in July 2013.
‘Ohemaa’ is a ballad that tells the story of love, regret and forgiveness. Ded Buddy has won numerous awards, including Best New Artiste, Song of The Year 1998 and Best Male Vocalist.
