Since we stepped into 2016, controversy has riddled Ghana’s first ever Afro-electric dance music artiste. Okuntakinte’s unique sound has been the talk of social media and has stirred a variety of trending topics from #MelaninGirls to his ‘Work’ video cover.
The Ghanaian music audience have adapted an interesting response to the new sound from Okuntakinte. The 19-year-old Afro-EDM artiste who burst onto the music scene some months ago with a bang amidst controversy has consistently still found a way of connecting with fans and critics alike.
The varied opinions, trolls, bad and good reviews have not deterred Okuntakinte and have rather paved an opportunity for him to give Ghanaians a chance to step into his world.
In the past week, Okuntakinte run a very rewarding and engaging countdown on social media to unveil a premium sleek and very interactive website www.okuntakinte.com. The hashtag for this countdown was #OkuntaWorld. As a pioneer in a genre new and different from the normal Ghanaian sound, Okuntakinte’s website is a home where people can not only relate or understand his art but be up to date with his music and artistic content. Hopefully, this website will clarify his unspoken art and reduce the uproar his content exudes on social media.
There is more to come from this young artistic and interesting lad. There is even word out that he has a possible collaboration with the award-winning songstress Efya. Looks like Okuntakinte has his cards decked out well. Check out the website.
