|Dancehall King, Samini and Hip Hop lyrical warlock alias trouble
maker, Asem have disclosed their decision to collaborate on an album
project titled ‘CLOSE FRIENDS’ on Monday, January 7, 2013 via social
media network, twitter.
The two renowned musicians who have never worked before said this
project was intuited out of admiration and respect for each other’s
craft for years in the industry and thinks this is the moment their
paths have crossed in the music realm to do a song together on the
trouble maker’s upcoming third album.
Though this is their first work together, the synergy and inspiration
in the studio was so high that they thought it wise to take advantage
of their creative chemistry and work on a joint album instead of just
doing one song as granted to other artistes who have worked with both
The Project titled ‘CLOSE FRIENDS’, will involve the release of
singles on the album which starts with the release of ‘Running Away’
on Friday, January 11, 2013 and after every 2 or 3 months subsequent
singles will be released till close to end of Year when the songs will
be compiled for an Album.
WBDN RECORDS/SAMINI MUSIC promises astounding lyrical content and
artistry on this album, meanwhile, both artists are currently in the
studio working on their solo Albums also to scheduled to be released
When asked whether the work load wouldn’t be too much on them, both
artistes agreed it will be tough but they are very well inspired by
the challenge, the skill and diverse song writing abilities they
possess to overcome every obstacle.
The irony and beauty of this merger is that both artistes are brand
ambassadors of competitive rival Telecom Companies, MTN and GLO
respectively but unlike the companies, they have chosen to
individually represent themselves as Asem and Samini who have joined
forces to make good music for the unity of their numerous fans.
The year has definitely started well for GH music with Asem and
Samini’s album project, ‘Close Friends’ and just like many teaming and
anxious fans out there, I can’t wait to hear the first single to be
released tomorrow titled ‘Running Away’ which will be officially aired
on all radio stations and also made available for download online.
