Events in Ghana are now experiencing a face lift in terms of properly entertaining audience thanks to the tireless efforts of MC’s, artistes and organizers. The focus by the way is on the MCs now since they are the ones actively involved in interacting with the audience. One name keeps coming up when we mention Mastering of Ceremonies in Ghana and its none other than Ogee The MC, tagged “Ghana’s ‘Hypest’ MC”.
It is said that an entertainment event is never complete without a master of ceremonies “;this is an incomplete statement itself, perhaps we should say ” An entertainment event is and will never be complete without Ogee The MC”, that is word on the streets now!
Born Bright Danquah in Kumasi, Ashanti Region Ogee moved from being the regular guy to being that bad hyper boy on the Microphone! Ogee The MC as he is popularly known attended the Armed Forces Senior High School in Kumasi, Ashanti region and continued to the Takoradi Polytechnic where he studied Graphic Designing.
His love for entertaining people started in Senior High school where he used to mount stages to just entertain his fellow students with music during entertainment nights on Saturdays. His love for this craft saw him MC’ing in clubs in Kumasi and its environs. He met YFM Ghana’s Drive Time show host and recording artiste Joel Orleans who was then a Radio Jock at YFM Takoradi in 2010 who introduced him to radio.
Ogee The MC then became the official hype man and a presenter for entertainment news for the radio station at that time. In 2012, he relocated to Accra to pursue his dreams of becoming the biggest master of ceremonies in Ghana.
Through hard work and persistence, Bright gradually gained recognition in the nation’s capital through his activeness in ‘MC’ing’ events throughout the City. His name is literally embedded on the walls of all the biggest clubs and hangout joints in Accra such as Plush Bedouin Lounge – East Legon, Bela Roma – Osu, Prive Nite Club to mention but a few.
Aside club MC’ing, Ogee is the official hype man for YFM and Team Faded. He was the official Mc for this year’s YFM Area Codes Jam at West Hills Mall, Weija, Shades On Shorts, YFM Loud in Ghana, YFM Easter in Accra Beach Party and has been hosting all campuses shows, private parties, just to mention but a few. He was also the official hype man for Ruff N Smooth at this year’s Ghana meets Naija concert.
DJ’s and artiste now like to have him on stage whilst they play or perform because is always hyper aside being a Master of Ceremonies, Ogee is an event planner and an online marketing adviser and currently works with YFM and Joel Orleans’ company.
He also hosts the “About Last Night” segment on the Saturday Morning Live show with Brown Berry on Y107.9 FM on which he talks about the most interesting clubs and hangout joints in the city of Accra; the ones he comes across on his MC duty. He plays basketball and believes that keeping fit is a key in staying healthy.
Ogee looks forward to working and meeting with the biggest names in the world. His ultimate in being a master of ceremonies is to become the greatest MC from Africa and to eventually hold the prestigious BET awards ceremony.
