GH Stand Up Concert



Ghanaian RnB singer Chemphe


Last weekend saw the Accra International Concert Center packed again for a remarkable GH Stand Up concert which staged American artistes Keri Hilson, Bow Wow and seasoned Ghanaian artistes Chemphe, Kwaw Kesse, Rana, Buk Bak, Edem, Kaakie and Guru. The show was well organized and had a very good attendance with security and coordination at its best.

The media also had a fair share of its representation for pre-programme and post-event analysis. The Ghanaian artistes were at their best in performance to spice the show up for the key artistes from American artistes who were playing for the first time in Ghana.

Chemphe gave a grand opening to the event with performance of his Peace Song “One People” which proceeded with dance demonstrations. He further performed Number 1 and closed with “Kiss Me”, which saw 4×4’s Captain Planet jump on stage after the impressive bicycle works to finish his verse.

Chemphe’s opening was necessary to carry the peace message across and also allowed the fans to settle and get carried away with the groove. It was the first time Chemphe performed his new hit “Kiss Me” on stage but really had the crowed dance along to it. The Ghanaian RnB champ in an interview expressed appreciation to the crowed for the support.


A Big Brother feature…

Chemphe’s two new singles “Kiss Me” which features Funny Face and 4×4, and “Left Over” which features the stunning sound engineer Laxio had an airplay at the Big Brother house last Saturday 12th May 2012, which saw the housemates dance to it. Both songs were released May 1st 2012 and having very good airplay in the world now.

Chemphe who is currently preparing for his first major performance in Ghana after his return from Norway indicated that the fans have played an instrumental role in putting him back where he left off to the YMCA Concerts in Hong Kong and Norway and pledged to provide good music to the public and also be a tool for social developments.

He was very impressed during the weekend as fans started calling him and his manager about the two new singles being played at the Big Brother house. He is set to perform his new single “Kiss Me” at the GH Stand Up Concert live at the Dome of Accra International Conference Centre on Saturday 26th May 2012.

Ghanaian RnB singer Chemphe

R n B is currently on a very slow pace due to few involvements as compared to Hip life and Hip-hop, and has led to the genre being sidelined by most award concerts in the country. Chemphe is very passionate about the growth of R n B in the country and has pledged to boost it to a greater height in the country this year by various R n B rave concerts. He is expected to release his double album in summer 2012. The ‘New Day’ album which was released in Norway last year was one of the fastest selling on iTunes in the YMCAs calendar.


Chemphe is set to release a full album entitled ‘Purple Kiss’ which has hit singles ‘Number 1’ featuring Dr Cryme, ‘Kiss Me’ featuring 4×4 and Funny Face, ‘Left Over’ featuring Laxio, ‘Independent Lady’ featuring

Ghana Music: D-Black Feat. Sarkodie

As far as music videos in Ghana go, D-Black stepped out of the norm with this one. His new animated video to the single ‘My Kinda Girl’ premiered in Ghana last week, with a string of celebrities such as 4×4, R2Bees, Joselyn Dumas, Naeto C, Reggie Rockstone and others in attendance.  The music video was the creation of Nigerian animator Jonathan Olamide.

D-Black’s ‘My Kinda Girl’ is a collaboration with Ghana’s fastest rapper Sarkodie, and the two rappers do a great job spitting catchy and witty lyrics over heavy hip hop beats. The animated video which roughly has a story line is funny, pokes harmless fun at some of Ghana’s well known movie starts and musicians such as Nadia Buari, Jackie Appiah, Lydia Forson, Majid Michel, Reggie Rockstone, Yvonne Nelson and Dee Money.
