Kim Kardashian has announced that the reality show that made her family super-rich and famous has come to an end.

She announced this with an Instagram post in which she said: “To our amazing fans -It is with heavy hearts that we’ve made the difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to Keeping Up with the Kardashians”.

The TV reality show has been airing for about 14 years and the Kardashian-Jenner made fortunes from it, simply by filming and airing their extravagant lifestyle.

“After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes and numerous spin-off shows, we are beyond grateful to all of you who’ve watched us for all of these years – through the good times, the bad times, the happiness, the tears, and the many relationships and children. We’ll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we’ve met along the way.

Thank you to the thousands of individuals and businesses that have been a part of this experience and, most importantly, a very special thank you to Ryan Seacrest for believing in us, E! for being our partner, and our production team at Bunim/Murray, who’ve spent countless hours documenting our lives.

Our last season will air early next year in 2021.

Without Keeping Up with The Kardashians, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am so incredibly grateful to everyone who has watched and supported me and my family these past 14 incredible years. This show made us who we are and I will be forever in debt to everyone who played a role in shaping our careers and changing our lives forever.

With Love and Gratitude,

Kim”.

Offei Gear Up For Success

Published

on

Singer/Songwriter Derrick Offei – Awuku was born in the music mecca of Tema and grew up in Dansoman and back to Tema Again. A chance of being a dancer jump-started his love for the recording studio and writing songs. The turning point for the ambitious singer occurred in 2020 when he featured one of Nigeria’s music stars Patoranking on a single dubbed ‘Fi ma no’ which is still enjoying relevance in the media space after it’s released.

Being a Medical Laboratory Scientist, Offei, also love the entertainment space with his perfect genes for dancing, rapping, singing, and songwriting. He recalls that after he discovered his ability to put words together to rhyme he took advantage then of it and started rapping, not long people started noticing, He said “I had a nice unique voice and started talking me into singing, I finally yielded and haven’t regretted it.”

Offei is a native of Amanokrom Akuapem in the Eastern region of Ghana and also a Ga maternally. He describes his kind of music as afro-fusion / Afropop, which he says it is a blend of genres such as Highlife, Afrobeats, R&B, soul, and Jazz. “It is basically making music with a core base of African elements, be it instrumentation or language”.

His silky, soulful vocals are woven throughout his songs like ‘Fi ma no’, ‘Santorini’, ‘LowKey’ ‘Maria’ ‘Body Whine’ and all of his 9 songs since he started his music career. Stepping aside to hone the writing skills he began working on his own songs and collaborating with other musicians, due to the unique skills, he ultimately landed a feature with Patoranking on ‘fi ma no’ and Kwesi Arthur on ‘ Human Being’.

Offei’s collaboration with Patoranking on ‘ Fi ma, no’ came through when the Nigeria music superstar Patoranking mistakenly heard the song from his producer Ctea, who was in South Africa at that time, “the song wasn’t initially supposed to come out because it was a remake of a Ghanaian classic recorded 20 years ago by a legendary group called BLACKSTONE, Ctea on the other hand in an attempt to play some of his new beats to Patoranking in the studio mistakenly played the song to Pato and Patoranking said he loved the song and gave me a free verse, I then reached out to the original makers they also loved it and gave me a verse.”

According to Offei, the original the song ‘Be fi mano ‘ by BLACKSTONE was his all-time favorite song, and so was it to his producer Ctea, “so one day in the studio after recording three songs, we were just relaxing and having a ‘convo’ about childhood memories when we realized we both shared the same interest in the song, Ctea being a producer started playing the melody on the keyboard, the singer part in me couldn’t help but to start singing a verse to it, Ctea then said we should record it and that will stay our little secret we recorded it and the rest was history.”

The versatile artiste, who believes his unique voice and his versatility makes him different from other artistes says the music business is very lucrative and he is yet to make more impact with music and from music. His music is targeted to anyone who believes in LOVE and good music.

Talking about his fear in the music space, he said, “Not being accepted used to be my biggest fear, but I now understand that as an artist all I need is to believe and accept my own craft and that energy will be transferred to my Audience.”

Offei takes inspiration from music legends like; Daddy Lumba, Freddy Meiway, Prince Bright (buk bak), Terry BOnchaka and Mrs lauryn hill. The currently crazed world in which we live is the perfect inspiration for Offei’s songs he normally moves with the vibe and mood the instrumentation gives him he gains inspiration from his personal experiences and other stories he hears around me. I sing about diverse topics such as love and other experiences from society.

He looks forward to being releasing a new musical project before the year ends. Offei encourages his fellow artistes to keep at the hustle, and always seek to improve their craft, “they can’t afford to give up no matter what, help will come, recognition will come, pay attention to the one or two people feeling your vibe, they will spread the word very soon the world will hear about you.”
