Okomfo Kwadee to release new album

Hip-life music’s storyteller, Jerry Anaba also known as Okomfo Kwadee has urged his fans to expect his new album by the end of the first quarter of this year.

Okomfour Kwadee bounced back onto the music scene more than a year ago when he released his single track Afei Kora Na Mabodam after a four-year absence due to an alleged mental ailment.

Speaking to Adom Entertainment News, Kwadee said the album is at the studio level and will be ready in due time.

He conceded that the Ghanaian music industry has become very competitive but was optimistic that his yet to be released album will 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.

The 2007 Best Original Song/Lyrics winner at the Ghana Music Award expressed concern about the continuous use of pidgin English in the Hip-Life 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 pidgin. I hope the trend would change back to the genesis of Hiplife where the Akan dialect was the main medium of communication,” he said.

The native of Navrongo in the Upper East Region made a passionate appeal to the president of MUSIGA, Bice Osei Kuffour also known as Obour to put in place measures to unearth talent among the 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 advise from the players in the industry and also ensure that the union scouts for talents and train them for posterity sake,” Kwadee said.
