Social media is now a big and cost-effective platform for millions of young up and coming artistes around the world to get to the public limelight without incurring the huge financial burden that traditional media imposes on them.
One of such young artistes is Ghanaian urban gospel act, Tresh, known in private life as Stanley Botchway, who just released his latest single “W’ebee” meaning “it’s well” on all social media platforms Saturday, October 22, 2018.
According to Tresh, the single was inspired by the truth that “Every problem comes along with its solution; the bigger the problem, the bigger the testimony”.
“So no matter what the problem is, know that it’s well,” he said.
