Gladstorm Kwabena Akwaboah Jnr., better known as Akwaboah Jnr, has revealed that his pastor urged him on to venture into secular music.

According to him, his pastor actually prophesied that his calling is to do secular music.

Akwaboah Jnr, who recently released ‘Matters of the Heart’, a 12-track album, told Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM that even though he had recorded both a gospel and secular albums, he was caught in a dilemma about the kind of music he should do as a musician.

Akwaboah Jnr, however, noted that his pastor helped him with choosing one.

“…the thing is that my pastor believes in everyone’s destiny; we all can’t be pastors; we all can’t be bankers. Initially, I wanted to do gospel songs so I did a gospel album but I also recorded a secular album so I was confused as to which side I should stand for…,” he said.

“…My pastor was prophesying… and he called me and told me that my calling was to do secular music…,” the talented musician added.

Akwaboah Jnr has a gospel song, ‘Worship (Medley)’, on his ‘Matters of the Heart’ album.

Lazee

Swedish born Ghanaian artiste and Chief Executive Officer of Timeless music, Mawuli Kwabla Morton Kulego known in the music space as Lazee has praised young Ghanaian BET nominee Kwesi Arthur’s style of music as unique.
According to the Swedish Grammy nominee, he will choose Kwesi Arthur over any artiste in Ghana because “I think our two styles would fit together. I’m a big fan of his music.” He said.

In an interview with the artiste who is based in Sweden, his plan in the music industry is to inspire, motivate the youth to be themselves and be better. Lazee whose father was a DJ, grew up influenced by music. He chose to do rap because; he said: “I felt that was my attitude at the time and something I could relate to.”

Sharing his experience as a black guy doing urban music in a white-dominated country he said, “Doing urban music in a white-dominated country isn’t easy but, I had no choice but to believe in myself because no one else could see my vision. It hasn’t been smooth, it’s all self-motivation.”

He has worked with Raekwon (Wu-Tang), Sean Kingston, Krayzie Bone (Bone Thugs N) Harmony, Swedish House Mafia, Prince of 4×4 and has over 500 tracks.
Lazee said “I look up to artists that’s accomplished what I trying to do. Everyone from Jay-Z, Drake, Diddy are all big inspirations for me.”
His latest song ‘Flex’ was inspired by his trip to Ghana. “It’s my first time singing in my native language which is Ga and English. So I hope the people like it.”

About Lazee.

Mawule Kulego also known artist/songwriters/songwriter from Sweden. In 2006, Lazee released his first mixtape, ‘It Is What It Is’, a collaboration with hip hop legend DJ Kay Slay (NYC). With influences from Rap, RnB, and Reggae, Lazee found a way to combine that with all the 90\s rock pop music he grew up listening to in Europe.

He quickly found his strength in writing and composing a sound that’s familiar but new. Lazee’s first single ‘Rock Away’ was an instant hit and entered the charts in the spring of 2008, before it’s even officially released. It ended up in the top 10, and rotated frequently on all major Scandinavian radio stations and Swedish MTV.

After that, his first album ‘Setting Standards’, was released. Sharing the stage with acts such as Lady Gaga, Snoop Dogg, Ne-Yo, Wyclef Jean, 50 Cent and being adviced by the legendary Quincy Jones, Lazee has proved not only to be a great performer but also a great entertainer. After studying Performing Arts at UCLA, Lazee focused more on his songwriting and has since worked with both seasoned and new producers. With his latest release with Warner Music/ Parlophone signed artist and world producer Ishi, Lazee is well on his way to becoming a well-known writer and a top liner.
