Published

on

GRAMMY-nominated Afro Roots Songwriter/Singer, the Producer, and activist, Rocky Dawuni, is releasing a brand-new EP on October 30, 2020, entitled “Voice of Bunbon Vol. 1” The EP is available TODAY for Pre-Save & Pre-Order at https://tinyurl.com/yy7xo2nf

The new EP comes on the heels of his most recent full-length album “Beats of Zion” (2019) which received tremendous acclaim around the globe and featured five incredible music videos filmed in Ghana, India, the US, and beyond. Rocky’s move back to his home country of Ghana is evident in this latest offering which explores contemporary aspects of local music in a creative quest to extend its global appeal.

According to Rocky, “these new songs were born out of my desire to present and project music that is rooted in the deep cultural traditions of Ghana yet presented in a way that it can relate to the modern world. Bunbon is my home town in Northern Ghana. My musical career has always been firmly inspired by my upbringing in the royal family of Bunbon and being educated in indigenous ways. This exposure to cultural appreciation has served as an important part of my world view and music. My vision for this EP is to present a globalized version of African culture. It also represents my maturity over the years as a voice for social consciousness. In a time of uncertainty, we need songs and hymns that can touch our emotional nerve and remind us that love and hope are an indestructible aspect of the human experience that no amount of fear can take away.”

Rocky’s latest offering explores the diversity of his “Afro Roots” sound fusing modern and traditional musical trends in Ghana and across the continent. “Voice of Bunbon” is a diverse sonic experience with songs ranging from acoustic to beat-driven anthems to cultural explorations utilizing aspects of Afrobeats, Highlife, Reggae, Soul and Pop and beyond. The inspirational words to the songs focus on love, resilience, faith, joy and hope. Running through the EP is a theme of empowerment, urging the listeners to think critically on current issues.

‘Do Away With Women Who Don’t Appreciate Little Things’ : Actor Advises Men

Published

on

Kenneth Okonkwo, veteran Nollywood actor has schooled single men on the qualities they should look out for in choosing a life partner.

In a lengthy post on social media, he said a woman who doesn’t appreciate little thing is a Red flag and men should flee from such women.

According to the actor, a woman who genuinely loves a man will not push him beyond limits, but instead she would appreciate his little efforts and support him to achieve his goals.

He wrote: “To make N200, an Okada rider might have to do 4 trips. Even so, his profit will not be N200 considering he has to first subtract money for fuel and union dues. N200 could be big money depending on the financial capacity of the giver.

“See, any woman who doesn’t appreciate the little you give to her is not for you. You will never grow as a man with such a woman in your life. So the earlier you do away with her, the better for your mental health.

“It is better to marry a stark illiterate who hawks groundnut and makes a profit of N100 than to marry a woman who doesn’t believe in the dignity of labour and who undermines the importance of speaking life into her man.

Kenneth Okonkwo continued: “The problem is not that you don’t give her enough money – and there is no amount of money that will be sufficient for a woman without value. The problem is that you’re wasting your resources and time on the wrong woman. As a rule of thumb, never go out of your way to do what you cannot do for yourself for any woman. It is not love. It is foolishness.

“A woman who genuinely loves you will not push you beyond your limits. She will respect the efforts you’re making and she’ll encourage your dreams. If a woman is working for or is involved in a legit hustle for money, she will know the value of money. The moment you meet a girl who believes that her vagina is the gateway to financial independence, run. If you don’t, that is the beginning of your end.”
