My Love For Africa Is Deep : Fuse ODG

Published

Fuse ODG

It is no secret that UK-based Ghanaian musician, Fuse ODG has Africa at heart. His campaign for a new Africa, “TINA” has received worldwide recognition.

Fuse, who recently released and launched his new album called “New Africa Nation” in the UK is back in Ghana to have another launch right here in the motherland.

“My love for Africa is deep. It’s always been there since Azonto”. Every time I’ll be talking about my music, I’ll talk about how much I love Ghana, how much I love Africa. And this is new Africa: I’ve always been speaking about it. Except now on this album, you can hear it in the music as well. That’s the difference. It’s more infused into the music, so you can hear more of what the movement is about a lot more,” Fuse said.

Speaking on his plans to help improve Africa especially Ghana, the ‘Tina’ hitmaker publicly made known some of the exploits he is working towards concerning the provision of improving quality education for Kids in Ghana.

“We are building schools. So we are building a school in Akosombo, which is something I am very passionate about. That we need to have our own schools and give these kids who don’t have the chance to have a good and decent education.

Fuse ODG added that as an attempt to improve and build upon the perception of Africans, he has designed and introduced black dolls that have a historical background and effect, in order to not just create change, but also make the black individual feel loved and accepted.

“Yes they are Barbie dolls but this time they are black, and also they are based on historical African women, so it’s also educational. It’s about representation. A kid feeling like they are being represented in the normal world because they had this white blond blue eyed looking like queens and princesses and we didn’t have any for us. That’s how the self hate starts for our people. Wanting to look lighter and changing their hair making it straight.”

Fuse continued; “We didn’t realize when it was happening. And now years later we are fighting against hate and we are encouraging our people to love themselves. But with the kids, we are just teaching them to love themselves. With the older ones, we are teaching them to relearn to love themselves. And that’s the hardest. Teaching somebody whose mind is already grown. Whose personality has already been made.”

Fuse ODG officially released his second album on the 8th of March 2019 called New Africa Nation on which he has nineteen (19) tracks. He featured international artists such as Damien Marley, Simi, Stefflon Don, Ed Sheeran, Sarkodie, OT Woode and UK poet, Suli Breaks.

His album has since received major airplay in all of Ghana, Nigeria and the UK. Fuse ODG also described the New Africa Nation album as; “a very “Spiritual” album that I know Nkrumah would be proud of”. He is set to launch the album officially in Ghana very soon.

I Blame The Media For The Influx Of Slay Queen Syndrome : Ama K. Abebrese Reveals

Published

Ama K. Abebrese

Ghanaian actress and TV personality, Ama K. Abebrese, is blaming the media for contributing to creating the slay queen phenomena.

According to her, most of these slay queens have become popular because the media gives them attention.

“Most of the names I hear on social media are as a result of the media giving these slay queens attention on their platforms. There is no way I would have heard of such names if it were not for the media,” she told Showbiz recently.

According to Ama K. Abebrese, the media giving attention to these slay queens has influenced many other young girls who all want to be there because they know they will be famous when the media gives them the mileage.

Her advice to social media users is to be careful about what they put out there, “what you put on social media is for the world to see and you should, therefore, be careful what goes out there.

She added, “you can be having fun today but in some years to come when you want to take up a job, that is when your videos or whatever you did will be played back to you. Do whatever you are comfortable with but be careful what goes out there,” she said.

Ama K, as she is popularly known, also revealed that a lot of people were living fake lifestyles on social media. I know some ladies who borrow shoes and clothes to take pictures on social media and return them when they are done with what they wanted to use them for,” she said.

Away from the social media stuff, Ama K. Abebrese spoke about the movie industry and indicated that although things were not how they used to be, they could be better.

She has started her new TV show, Champions of Society, on Kwesé TV. The show tackles social and health issues and involves Ama K. talking directly to the people whose lives they affect.

Ama K. Abebrese started hosting TV shows in her teens on YCTV in London. She went on to present on BBC2, OBE TV, Viasat 1, TV3, Ebonylife TV and many others.

I’m Not Going To Quit Black Avenue Muzik : Sefa

Published

on

Sefa

Sefa, a signee of D-Black’s Black Avenue Muzik (BAM), has opened up about her label mates who have exited the BAM label, saying she has no cause to worry.

According to Sefa, she is currently happy at the label and has no plan of quitting the record label.

The talented songstress, who joined BAM over a year ago, and another young talent Mz Forson are currently the only artistes left at BAM.

This was after four artistes‒ including Wisa Greid, DahLin Gage and Freda Rhymes‒ announced their exit from the record label weeks ago.

The artistes didn’t state their reasons for the exit, but D-Black said at a press conference on Friday that it’s a mutual decision to part ways with the four artistes.

According to Sefa, everyone has the right in life to follow which direction they deem fit. There is, therefore, no absolute reason she should be worried when other signees decide to pursue different paths.

“My ex-label mates are very strong people and I know they have a passion for me. Wherever they go you can see the music in them. I don’t know the reason why they left and I am sure they have their own reasons, but as long as I know they are not giving up their dreams that is what makes me happy because they really have amazing talents. It’s their passion; they eat and breathe music. So, that’s my main concern,” she explained.

“I don’t where God wants me to be the next two years or one year but then anything that happens God knows best,” she added.

Sefa now has a song with Jupiter titled ‘Marry Me’, ‘Pepper’ featuring Bisa K Dei, ‘Odo Yewu’ and ‘Shuga’ featuring Dope Nation which she released a video not long ago.

Talking about her passion for music and what she wishes to become in the near future, she said:

“I actually wanted to do music and I also have thought of becoming an air hostess. But when I was growing up, I was really big, so somebody told me that I am too fat to be an air hostess. So, I changed my mind to do business until when my mother started pushing me to start singing in front of the congregation,” she stated.
