Experience AliJoe, The Sensational Hi-Life Artiste

Published

on

Born Godfred Boamah in Kene, a town in Okru State in Nigeria, West Africa, and brought to Ghana at the age of 3 to bond with his father and relatives.

Godfred Boamah now popularly known as Alijoe attended Opiniman Junior High School where he had his basic school education.

Growing up in Nkawkaw in the Eastern Region of Ghana, AliJoe will save up money to buy ‘walkman’ and his favorite artiste’s cassettes just listen to their music over and over again at his free time. This pushed him to start doing music at the age of 13. Composing his own rhymes and writing down lyrics.

AliJoe has always been passionate about music and entertainment in general, grooming, and learning his craft at every given chance is his way of life. The versatile musician who plays the piano with ease has a love for several genres of music but High Life comes first being inspired by greats such as Nana Acheampong and Tu Baba of Nigeria.

Music comes to him with ease as he pens down his lyrics with whichever mood he is in. His songs talk about all of life and living it both the pain and joy.

Singed unto Ghanaian based Drovel Music Company, Ali Joe has released a lot of good music with great videos available on his Youtube channel Drovel Music.

Fast forward to 2020, AliJoe released Jele, a highlife song that talks about today’s daily struggles as a youth to put food on the table and asking for God’s blessing to become successful.

AliJoe is poised towards taking High Life and Ghanaian music to the world stage in no time and believes winning the Grammy’s is a big possibility.

‘I Had Always Wanted To Have Someone From My State As A Wife’ : Ned Nwoko Further Reveals The Main Reason He Decided To Marry Regina Daniels

Published

on

Before marrying Regina Daniels, none of Ned Nwoko’s wives were from his home state, Delta State.

In a recent interview, he indicated that he was always on the lookout for someone from his state, Delta State, to be his wife.

Meeting Regina who was also from Delta State somehow influenced his decision to settle down with her.

He said“; I liked her when I saw her, especially when I found out that she was from that place. I had always wanted to have somebody (a wife) from my side. We were introduced to each other and one thing led to another. That was when I found out she is a very decent girl. I have always said that I wouldn’t marry anybody who isn’t a virgin and that is very important to me. When I found out that she was a virgin, it reinforced my decision to marry her. I married all my wives as virgins.”
