Shatta Wale, Guru, Kofi Kinaata, Sherifa Gunu, others to join Maccasio for Northern Xplosion Concert @ Accra Sports Stadium, Feb. 25

Published

on

Having entrenched himself as a force to reckon with up north (filling up the Tamale Stadium on a number of occasions), rapper Maccasio ( born Sherif Abdul-Majeed) is set to take on the nation’s capital come February 25th.

A Zola Music/ 69 Entertainment partnership, the Northern Xplosion Concert will see the Too Big rapper mount his first major stage in Accra, treating his many fans to the many anthems he has created over the years.

Recently signing to beverage dealers Giant Malt, Maccasio has also collaborated on projects with sought-after mainstream acts including Kofi Kinaata, Zeal (VVIP), and dancehall star Shatta Wale. Obviously an audacious choice of venue, the rapper appears unintimidated, as he will be in brilliant company consisting Iwan, Guru, Fareed, Rudebwoy Ranking, Bastero, Dr Cryme, Sherifa Gunu, Gaffachi, Morgan, Flawa, S K Y, Arisky, Dahin Sheli, Naa Body⁠⁠⁠⁠, as well as likely appearances from Shatta Wale and Wiyaala.

Pulled off correctly, this will bring him even closer to attaining recognition at this year’s edition of the prestigious VGMA awards slated for coming months. The show starts at 7 pm.

“Could this be Love?” ponder R2Bees in new collab with EFYA — WATCH!

Published

on

Afropop duo and BET honourees, R2Bees, mull over an age-long question: how can one tell if a set of actions constitute love or a futile undertaking? And who better to tap than chanteuse Efya, who has sung about the concept throughout her career?

Produced by Killmatic, the song is carried on  a lean R& B swing, and sees Efya bounces back the question Mugeez’s poses in the hook —and delivered in a troubled wail — in  the exact same words: “could this be love, is this forever? Or ebi say I dey waste my time, you dey waste your time?/ Are you loving me, or just for pleasure? Or ebi say I dey waste my time, you dey waste your time?”

On his part,Omar Sterling —the rapper half of the duo — relates in a sobering session — profound worship for a lover, admit to “falling deeper”, while at the same time digesting antipathy that often characterises love —and the compromises thereof, rapping in part; “I put my trust in you, put my hopes in it/ I put my heart on my sleeve, put my soul in it/If you ever break my heart, that will be all for me/ but I’d rather die for you than live with somebody”“girl you’re picture perfect/ is this picture worth it/ could this be love or a bitter lesson?”, “even when I’m right, I try to be the bigger person”.

Could this be Love is released under R2Bees Entertainment. Get it on iTunes.

STATEMENT: Shatta Wale apologises for “unpleasant exhibition”

Published

on

For an “unfortunate display of obscenity” that was “mistakenly posted” by an associate on social media Tuesday, June 19,  and a fit of diatribes targeted at media personnel for republishing the video, controversial dancehall singer, Shatta Wale, has expressed remorse.

A statement, dated June 20, and signed by the singer, pleads for pardon from his family, fans, record label, and corporate Ghana for the shameful act and embarrassment that it may have brought to them.

Furthermore, the statement sees Shatta (born Charles Nii Armah Mensah) reiterate his brand as being “a law-abiding one; one that will not do anything untoward to bring it and its partners into disrepute”.

“The brand would also not do anything to affect the sensibilities of the large following and support it commands.” he adds. Read the full statement, published on his Facebook page:

Meanwhile, his latest single, “Man Like Me”,  is out now:
