DR CRYME WINS GOLDEN HEART AWARD IN UK

 

Ghana being a part of commonwealth has given its citizens the opportunity to be part of the ever growing cultural exchange market. As such the United Kingdom provides the avenue for young Ghanaian entertainers the opportunity to exhibit their talent, especially during the summer, when multiple programmes are held to promote the whole commonwealth exchange agenda.

One of the groups spearheading the above agenda is the UK based Akwaaba UK, who over the years have been instrumental in organizing beauty pageants, independence and republic shows, private parties, charity events and more. They have been able to train other competitors to live up to expectations  in the global arena, and enable them easily bridge the gap between Africa nationals living abroad and in Africa, especially Ghana.

Dr Cryme is currently Ghana’s most sought for celebrity, and has won the same honour during the recently held High School Honours in Accra Ghana. The E-Jam Records artist had one of the highest RBT downloads via his “Kill Me Shy” single from his “Finally Finally” album launched in Ghana in November 4th last year as part of the album festival.

Ghanaian nationals in the UK were most impressed with Akwaaba UK’s choice to invite Dr Cryme to the 2011 Miss Ghana UK which was held at Troxy London in UK. Dzifa Gray is the founder, producer and director of the Titi Gray Talk Show on BEN TV, (Sky Channel 184), airing every Saturday at 7PM. The first pilot was in March 2009, Ghana’s 52nd Independence. The programme has been very instrumental in awarding entertainers around the world for innovation through bringing up new genres and also a general support to the society through adequate preservation of the African culture.

One of the main reasons that might have boosted up Dr Cryme’s win was his immense support to the society through socially active projects like donations to hospitals and general education of peers. His “Twipop” genre is currently global and has been very instrumental in creating a new music hub in Tema. Tema forms a conurbation with Accra and is a planned city in the center of the world. Dr Cryme a.k.a “Tema Eminem” a.k.a. “The General” couldn’t mince his words but had to show appreciated to everyone for making a dream come through.

He added that he’s received two plaques and two awards without losing out on any nominations due to him prior to his album launch, which is an impressive start and indicates an immense support from fans. So far D’Banj, Shirley Frimpong Manso and Dr Cryme are the only Africans who have been awarded as such.
