“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy for they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom,” this adage explains and summarizes Rich Boogie’s motivation to release a beautiful record to appreciate successful, hardworking Ghanaian Dancehall acts whose consistency has placed Ghana on a deserved pedestal, musically.
Born Richard Yeboah, Rich Boogie is a German-based Ghanaian garnished Dancehall act with unmatched experience within the Ghanaian music circles. He comes across as one of the very few refined musicians with accentuating records like ‘Yebe Gro’, ‘Makoma Mu Hemaa’, ‘Dance’, ‘Take a Look’ amongst others.
His latest record, ‘Made in Ghana’ appreciates the efforts of Samini, Shatta Wale, and Stonebwoy.
Rich Boogie gave an end-to-end recognition of the struggles these artists had to endure to draw world attention to the Ghanaian Dancehall culture.
“I’m really into Dancehall music. I came across it when I was seven (7) years old. All my Dancehall heroes back then were Jamaicans. I could see how Jamaicans cherish their own. I did this song for Samini, Shatta Wale, and Stonebwoy because I want to make them know I appreciate them for their good music and for putting GH on the map. Surely I’m not alone”, Rich Boogie explained in an interview with the press.
Made in Ghana was produced by Apya.
