My Genre of Music is Efya Music – Efya

Published

on

Sensational songstress Efya is without a doubt one of Ghana’s best female singers who is good at what she does.

With a very strong and catchy voice one cannot turn away from it when she sings or when her songs are played and this time, it was on Nitro; the Live Session.

With a fierce style, great sound and a packed mixed bag of tunes to dazzle her way through every performance, Efya takes the stage in a mood to own and make her presence more than felt during her session.

Efya 1

Her choir performance with the audience who jammed, sung and performed with her on ‘Little Things’, ‘Best in Me’, ‘One of Your Own’ among the other tunes is just divine.

Efya 2

The soul goddess took her time to explain her art and music and in the space of the minute or two to say, “My genre of music, I call it, Efya Music.

As of recent you do a lil bit of reggae and you’re a reggae artiste but I really like to do things that are mixed. But most of it definitely has the bases of soul.” Her music offers the comfort and relief that gets you through the day and she just defines it that way.

Efya 4

Nitro; the Live Session will be showing the 6th in the season of 13 episodes on DSTV Africa Magic on the Compact Plus Channel 151 for the full show and interview.

This is the first of many productions from Echo House a creative marketing agency that looks at doing things crazy enough to draw attention and potent enough to make a point.

TOO GOOD! Chiro Kofi Peprah announces new song, April 23!

Published

on

“Too Good” is the second single by burgeoning gospel singer, Chiro Kofi Peprah. The song follows the psalmist- evangelist’s debut offering “I surrender”, which was released in 2015.

The song blends authentic African music instrumentals with Jazz, and ultimately proclaims the greatness of God, as well as his love towards us, even when we are undeserving.

The single is scheduled for release, April 23.

 

PROFILE

Ebenezer Kofi Peprah Quaye popularly known as Chiro Kofi Peprah is  a Psalmist-evangelist called into   ministry and charged to impact generations for Christ with his talent. “CHIRO” is an abbreviation of Christ Himself is reigning over. In effect Chiro Kofi Peprah simply means Christ himself is reigning over Kofi Peprah.

Chiro Kofi Peprah’s logo

The logo is a representation of the full armour of God. Ephesians 6:10-18 says we should be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might and to put on the whole armour of God that we may stand against the wiles of the devil. The full armour of God is what every Christian needs to make it to the kingdom of God. The totality of the armour produces holiness which is God’s divine nature.

The gold colour of the logo ( the full armour of God) means royalty and our Heavenly Father is king and He reigns over all.

Chiro Kofi Peprah represents the royalty of God in Christ by manifesting the full armour of God. He is a royal servant of God.

In short Chiro Kofi Peprah is a warrior in the full armour of God representing King Jesus with His entire splendor and majesty, manifesting His royalty and His authority.

Life Prior to His Ministry

Chiro Kofi Peprah’s life prior to his calling was just like any ordinary guy in the world.

He indulged in illicit acts, and lived for his ego and desires. He used his strength for his will and did things to please himself and his desires.

He was in the world, and did things of the world, and followed the flow of the world. He followed what was trending in the world and had less time for the lord.

In 2003 at a Church of Pentecost youth camp meeting at Swedru Secondary School, Chiro Kofi Peprah was introduced to the ‘microphone’, his spiritual gift from God.

He was in the choir but the spiritual gift was dormant because he hadn’t been pushed to the forefront to hold a lone mic. The lead vocal at the forefront lost his vocal, and Chiro Kofi Peprah was called to hold the forefront.

In His song ministration of “Lord I give you my heart” a cover version his gift became evident, he saw people on their knees weeping and worshiping the Lord. He was in awe but couldn’t believe it until the next day, when another cover version of “Above all” got a Pastor and several elders on their knees weeping to the glory and magnification of God.

It was then that he realized that he had a gift, but after the camp meeting He was back to the challenges of the world and had no strict mentoring, like David he was in the wilderness alone.

Chiro Kofi Peprah’s attention was divided because he served several masters, the Lord, the world and himself. He had the opportunity to direct a group called the Royals in Praise, and hosted a program called the Blood, with his two most trusted friends who were twin brothers, Peter Aklamanu-Williams and Paul Aklamanu Williams who are now the heads of Gospel Gh.

Chiro Kofi Peprah worked with some wonderful personalities such as Bola Ray, Lydia Forson, Jeremie,Dr. Prince Pambo, Professor Reginald Ocansey just to name a few.

Active Call to Ministry

In 2015 Chiro Kofi Peprah was in the process of shooting his own TV show called Fitness show with CHIRO when God told him to lay it all down and do His will. He was charged to go and impact generations for Christ with his energy and gift, that led to David’s dance and the launch of Streets 4 Christ campaign in 2015 and subsequent release of I surrender single in 2016.

Lynx Entertainment makes a statement at 2018 VGMAs

Published

on

With almost every star gracing the red carpet for the biggest night in the Ghanaian entertainment calendar, the nineteenth edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards took place at the Accra International Conference Centre on Saturday 14th April 2018 and was accompanied by the usual pomp and pageantry it has become known for!
Respected Ghanaian talent management firm credited with the success story of several musicians, including Asem, Eazzy, Richie, Zigi and all-female group, D3, Lynx Entertainment made a huge impact on the night.
Styled by celebrity stylist TrendyRail, the Lynx Entertainment trio on the night – MzVee, Kuami Eugene and Kidi rocked the red carpet in their elegance and glamour and received fantastic feedback about their fashion on social media on the night. You can trust TrendyRail who has worked with Elle Magazine, Vogue and Ghana’s biggest musician Sarkodie, to “nail” the looks.
From the moment MzVee stepped onto the red carpet in her custom Licorice Dress designed by Korlekie, it was obvious the Lynx Effect had been activated and they meant business. The “Odo” hitmaker, Kidi oozed a unique charm which demanded every attention in his tailored grey suit styled with a black collarless shirt with a burgundy pocket square and burgundy shoes to add a pop of colour.
How many rockstars can look this clean on a red carpet?  Kuami Eugene wore a carefully tailored navy suit with a hint of colour by styling the suit with a white collar shirt. He wouldn’t be a rockstar if he did not keep the rockstar theme by adding quirky lapel pins and unbuttoned shirt!
Then the highlight of the night was the performances by the Lynx trio with each artist using the stage to the best of their abilities – demonstrating their versatility, stagecraft and star power.  MzVee gave a powerful live band performance of her hit singles ‘Rewind’, ‘Come and See My Moda’ and ‘Sing My Name’ in addition to an emotionally filled rendition of Ebony’s hit single “Date Your Fada”.
Kidi and Kuami Eugene also performed with a live band and gave a good account of themselves to justify the ‘Young Kings’ title bestowed on them by music aficionados.  Kidi grabbed the “Highlife Song of the Year” award and Kuami Eugene took home the “Highlife Artiste of the Year” and “New Artist of the Year” awards.
