Months ago, the management of award-winning Highlife artiste, Bisa kdei announced that the official Facebook page of the singer had been hacked.
His management took steps to take over the page but to no avail. His management have created a new page as a means of keeping communication between Kdei and his fan base.
In spite of the challenges with his official page, the ‘Brother Brother’ crooner has over the past few months entertained his fan base and music enthusiasts with thought-provoking and danceable tunes.
“This marks a new phase of his career. In the coming weeks, he will release some new songs and videos,” says Business Manager, Jay Foley. “A nationwide tour is in the works. He wants to get close to his ‘day one fans’ who supported him even before he gained mainstream appeal and let them know how grateful he is.”
Born Ronald Kweku Dei, he gained mainstream attention with the soundtrack for the movie ‘Azonto Ghost’ which got him a ‘Best Movie Soundtrack of the Year’ award at the 2012 Ghana Movie Awards.
Since then he has released about a dozen singles which have all gained massive rotation on mainstream radio and Television.
He has collaborated with the likes of Sarkodie, D Black, Efya, Obrafour, Kwaw Kese and many others. He recently recorded a song with Nigerian act, Davido.
Kdei has also headlined a number of shows in Ghana and outside the country.
His second album ‘Breakthrough’ was released last year to great praise by industry watchers and music fans.
He won four awards: ‘Most Popular Song of the Year’, ‘Highlife Song of the Year’, ‘Album of the Year’ and ‘Highlife Artiste of the Year’ at the 2016 Ghana Music Awards.
Kdei was also nominated at the 2015 African Entertainment Awards in the ‘Best Male International Act’ category.
