Published

It has been an exciting but cumbersome 4 weeks for the Volta Regional Chapter of the Ghana musician union headed by Mr. Anthony Dogber. He and his team of experts and local executives of the Volta musician union have been around the entire 36 districts within the Volta Region to announce the project and drum up local interest, support and education for the ‘Appietus National Music Production Project 2018’.

Finally, a fine selection of the tall list of materials they received from all the districts in the region, was carefully reviewed by the appointed team who came up with a final ten (10x) up and coming artist selected and outdoor to the Volta Region musician union and the people as a whole. Indeed the euphoria and excitement within the region is enormous and already the newly selected ‘10x’ in an initial interview stated that they can feel the pressure of the entire region on them to give their best in this one in a lifetime music recording, promotion and job opportunity provided by Mr. Appiah Dankwah, popularly known as Appietus “In Da Mix” initiative and national project.

Indeed the competition has started and has begun with a lot of heat and pure musical vibes. Having the opportunity to experience first-hand at the renowned ‘Creative Studios’ based in Dansoman, Accra the first few recording sessions by two (2x) of the selected ten (10x) artist from the Volta Region; I can confidently inform all of the other regions to brace themselves and really select with caution as to be able to much the heat that is coming from the Volta Region.

Let us remind ourselves that no producer has ever in the history of Ghana music embarked on such
an ambitious music production project across all the ten regions of the country. We at okromouthafrica will like to congratulate the beat mogul and his team and will encourage Government agencies Corporate Ghana and others to support in their own way so we can bring this idea of recording 100 free songs every year (10x) in each region into a living reality many years after we are gone.

Please take time to watch the photos of the selected ten (10x) and a video of the recording sessions with two (2x) of the selected ten (10x) from the Volta Chapter of the Ghana musicians union.For more information and new updates on the project follow Appietus on these social media pages Facebook: appietusappiahdankwah Instagram: appietusmix and Twitter: appietusindamix.

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.
