PaeDae of R2Bees fame has lamented how difficult it is for someone to succeed in the Ghanaian music industry.
He emphasized that the music industry in the country is like the Champions League—and one needs luck to be successful.
“The industry is tough for everyone especially the upcoming artist,” PaeDae said in an interview with Joy FM.
“I was telling Darko Vibes about artists that have been in the industry from when we started and they still don’t have a hit song and they are still trying.
“I told Killbeatz the music industry is like the Champions League because you need luck…because you can be good but you need that little bit of luck,” he stressed.
PaeDae added: “It’s really challenging especially in Ghana when there is no industry where in Europe where you don’t even need to do shows because of Royalties and streaming but Ghana we don’t have the structure where you earn royalties but we are blessed and lucky because our streaming numbers are crazy that’s why people hardly hear from us. We don’t need to do shows to survive.”
Currently, R2Bees are promoting their album titled ‘Site 15’.
Ghanaian Heavyweight Music Duo – R2bess links up with The Nigerian Music Brother – Wizkid, to deliver another infectious and mind warming tune titled “Supa”. The song brings back the wiz and R2bees vibes as they all set the Killmatic produced jam ablaze.
This isn’t the first time R2Bees have done a song with Wizkid. They are known to have produced hit songs such as Slow Down, Tonight, among other features that topped the airwaves.
Ghanaian music duo, R2Bees have a new deal with Universal Music Group.
One half of the group, Pae Dae shared the news on Twitter. Moreover, according to him, this means that their new album has to “be pushed back a few weeks.”
The group released ‘We Dey Vibe‘ off the upcoming album ‘SITE 15‘ in July. They promised to release the project in August 2018. However, their manager, Ike Otoo Arhin explained the reason for the delay.
“They [Universal] have made us a very good offer which we think we should take. This is our 10 years anniversary and the album release should be huge. If we release it independently, it would not go as far as we want it. Ghana music has to go further.”
Moreover, the terms of the deal are unavailable.
The duo become the third Ghanaian act to be signed by the world’s biggest music company after Cina Soul and Stonebwoy.

Joshua Kojo Ampah of hiplife duo Keche has expressed his disappointment in fellow duo R2Bees.
In an interview with Dr Pounds on Hitz Gallery on Hitz FM, the rapper criticized the group for the failure to capitalize on the opportunities given to them by Starboy Entertainment, owned by Nigerian afrobeat act WizKid.
Nigerian singer and all-round superstar, Wizkid announced the signing of three Ghanaian acts, R2Bees, Efya and Mr. Eazi onto his label, Starboy Entertainment at the 2016 edition of the Ghana Music Awards.
According to Joshua, the group made up of Mugeez and Paedae, should be able to attain a higher level than they currently are in their career.
He compared the group to Nigerian artiste Mr. Eazi who seems to have been able to grab more opportunity after his deal with Starboy Entertainment.
“I feel disappointed when it comes to R2Bees. I respect them a lot. We were here when Wizkid announced that he has signed Mr. Eazi, Efya and Rzbees. Mr. Eazi used every opportunity. I have seen Wizkid and Mr. Eazi on bigger platforms but R2Bees are nowhere to be found,” he noted.
The ‘Aluguntugui’ rapper, however, had a word of advice for the group. He urged them to represent the country internationally.
“You are repping Ghana, rep hard and come strong,” he said.
Keche is an award-winning Ghanaian hiplife duo, made up of Andrew Kofi Cudjoe and Joshua Kojo Ampah. The duo have a number of hit songs including, ‘Diabetes’, ‘Sokode’ and ‘Slow Motion’, to their credit.
The concern of coming clean on TV or radio has always been a challenge for brand owners. The fans are the definition to their success and these celebrities like to keep these fans in suspense. Sandra Ankobia could not give a straight response on viasat1 when fans questions her relationship with Paedae of R2bees.
The concept of currency is as physical as it is abstract . We scurry around everyday for a piece of the pie and the fact that there are a couple more zeros after a figure excites us. Time and time again we then get lost in a whirlpool of an animated state of bliss. The effect that currency has on us is so profound that even when it’s just a possibility we get worked up. This song was written from that Space. Ayat and Medikal were put on to give different perspective to this context. MIMP(Money In My Pocket) Produced By MagNom
The saga surrounding Bishop Obinim who could transmogrify into different species is getting worse by the minute. It was initially played on OBtv where two teenagers living with him were flogged by himself and two co-ministers in the church for breaking the Ten Commandments.
The concern is not necessarily with the punishment but the medium used to perpetuate such act. The Tema police division called on him and the two ministers for questioning and caution when the coin flipped into his arrest. A suspicion that the Bishop had defrauded an undisclosed individual of Gold in the amount of 11.6 million Ghana cedi ($2.9 million approximately); by close of day 23rd August, he had been transported to Nima police where he spent the night.
Since he could transmogrify to any animal, the police took the extra precaution to cuff him in custody. The police is not taking any chances. A large following were gathered at the Nima police station where some slept over and others joined in the morning. They were bused in by the church in protest causing nuisance to police activity, yet a demonstration of a kind. Police had to use force as means to restrain the growing crowd.
The question is:
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE ANGELIC PART OF OBINIM? HAS HE BEEN FORSAKEN BY HIS “papa jesus”? COULD HE NOT TRANSFORM ANYMORE WHEN IN CUSTODY? ISN’T THIS A MANIFESTATION HE IS AS HUMAN AS THE CONGRUENT?
