After what looked like a quiet 2015, Kwaisey Pee is definitely fired up for more action this New Year.
The contemporary highlife genius is scheduled to give music followers a corporate treat as he performs at his ‘Corporate Hangout’ event at the Bemuda Gardens at Abelemkpe adjacent Asamoah Clinic on Friday, January 29, 2016.
The ceremony is expected to endear him to corporate Ghana as large numbers of business tycoons would be attending.
Majority of them will be coming from companies operating within the Airport Residential, Roman Ridge, Dzorwulu, Abelemkpe, Achimota, Tesano and Alajo areas.
Patrons would wine, dine and dance as they network and sell their businesses to one another.
They will be mixing business with pleasure as Mr Seduction, Kwaisey Pee and his band perform all his hit songs.
Kwaisey remains one of Ghana’s best contemporary singers.
Akwasi Opoku aka Kwaisey Pee was born to the legendary highlife prodigy Agyeiku, and grew up with Rex Omar as a first cousin. His life revolved around playing with various bands like Jewel Ackaha’s Butterfly Six and Nana Tuffour’s Sikadwa Band in different parts of the country.
He took a trip with his father to the United Kingdom in the late 90s and the experiences there made him take music more seriously than before. His albums include Krokro Me, Akono Yaa, and Nyane Me which won him a Ghana Music Award for Best Male Vocal performance in 2007. Nyane Me, a 13-track album, featured Tic Tac, Kontihene, K K Fosu, Ofori Amponsah and his father, Agyeiku.
His style has been likened several times to that of maestro Kojo Antwi. From shows in Europe and in the USA, Kwaisey shuttles back and forth to Ghana. In the next few days, he is expected to wow the corporate community in Ghana.
