Chemphe does good deeds



Ghana’s King of RnB Chemphe, after a successful launch of his double P (campaign for Peace and Against Poverty) project in Accra a month ago, was in the central region, specifically “Nankasedo” and “Hasuodi”, both villages close to Saltpond, for the third session of his Double P project.  The musician was very instrumental in educating the populace on anger management mechanism and resource management to curb the poverty issue.

The village does not have basic utilities like water and light and it was an emotional moment for the artiste, who pledged to help them in acquiring them in the shortest possible time since it will in a long run help their business.

Chemphe added that though the project is funded by his record label (E-Jam Records), he won’t hesitate to accept corporate bodies and media who want to join the campaign since there is a lot to be done. He added that the campaign is a global one and will achieve a collective goal when other celebrities and corporate bodies embark on similar projects. Chemphe wept as a result of the rate of vulnerability of the village. Apart from providing them with basic amenities, he intends supporting them to build a KVIP.

He mentioned that though the “Global Citizen” song is getting good airplay in Norway where it was released last year, Ghana is about to experience the real outcome from the lyrics of the song. He mentioned that the project song’s video will be launched this year though the radio stations are permitted to start giving it a very good airplay to promote the project. Korsah-Brown (CEO, E-Jam Records), Mr Ebo Taylor (Ace Ghanaian Musicians), Sam Genesis (E-Jam and Waz up GH), Robert Abban (E-Jam Records) and other key people made up the research and sensitization team for the village mentioned above.

Ghanaian Music: D’Cryme – It’s You

Dr CrymeDr Cryme, the rapper famous for the catchphrase “you don’t need to be told” is back with a brand new single and video ‘It’s You’. Currently one of the biggest artist Tema has produced yet again, Dr Cryme has cemented his stay in the music business by collaborating with artists such as Sarkodie, Chemphe, D-Black and Stay Jay as well as releasing his own singles ‘Kill Me Shy’, ‘Mene Woa’ and ‘Fre Me’.

It’s You’ will be the fourth single from Dr Cryme’s highly anticipated album ‘Finally Finally’, which was launched at Citizen Kofi in Ghana last Friday. The twi pop singer delivers yet again and ‘It’s You’ is definitely a song to write home about! Having established himself as a rapper as well as a singer, he moves smoothly between the two in the song. His silky voice over a relaxed hip hop beat accompanied by the piano works very nicely and he switches effortlessly between Twi and English. So even if you don’t understand one or the other, you’ll definitely get the gist of what the song is about.

The video itself was directed by Nana Asihene and it’s a simple one shot in black and white. With no storyline it just features Dr Cryme alone in an abandoned stairwell and an open field. The lack of activity and movement in the video means that focus is centred on Dr Cryme’s singing and thoughtful lyrics. A definite thumps up for the song!

Check the video out!
