Okomfour Kwadae bounced back into 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, Okomfuor Kwadee said the album is at the studio level and will be ready in due time.
He conceded that the Ghanaian music industry has been competitive but was however 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 pigeon 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 to the genesis of Hip-Life where the Akan dialect was the main medium of communication,” he said.
The native of Navrongo in the Upper East Region of Ghana made a passionate appeal to the president of MUSIGA, Bice Osei Kuffour also known as Obour to put in place measures to unearth music talents in the Ghanaian youth to promote the music industry in Ghana.
“Obour is a youngman 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,” said Okomfour Kwadae.
