Hiplife musician, Jerry Anaba also known as Okomfo Kwadee has asked his fans to look forward to his new album soon.
According to Kwadee, the new album will be out by the first quarter of this year. One of the greatest hiplife artistes Ghana has seen, Kwadee’s career was almost cut short when an alleged mental ailment kept him out of the limelight for four years. He resurfaced about two years ago with a single “Afei Koraa Na Mabodam” but has been quiet since then.
Speaking to Adom Entertainment News, Kwadee revealed that the album is at the studio level and will be ready soon. He conceded that the Ghanaian music industry has become very competitive but was optimistic that the album will do great and stand the test of time.
“I cannot speak more about the album but I bet you that you’ll love to listen to it over and over again when it comes out,” he said proudly.
The 2007 Ghana Music Awards Best Original Song winner expressed concern about the continuous use of pidgin English in the hiplife industry.
“Music lovers were able to appreciate songs better when local dialects like the Akan language dominated the music scene as compared to now that songs are composed in pidgn. I hope the trend would revert back to the genesis of Hiplife where the Akan dialect was the main medium of communication,” he said.
The native of Navrongo made a passionate appeal to the president of MUSIGA, Bice Osei Kuffour also known as Obour to put in place measures to unearth talents among the Ghanaian youth to promote the music industry in Ghana.
“Obour is a young man like me and I know he has a big vision, but I wish he listens to advice from the players in the industry and also ensure that the Union scouts for talents and trains them for posterity’s sake.”
