Budding spoken word artist, Onwanwani Amaze announces his debut collection, the Amazement EP.
The seven-track folder, per its author, draws from some of his experiences and perspectives on a wide-ranging spectrum including academics, love and relationships, courage, prosperity and poverty. It also houses a special tribute to hiplife legend, Obrafour.
” It is natural for an artist to want to release as many works as possible, and I’m no different. This project was occasioned by the positive feedback that followed the release of ‘Tan Ohia,’ a single I released two years ago,” explains Onwanwani about the EP.
The track gained significant attention, landing an endorsement by veteran broadcaster, Abeiku Santana, who deployed it as a starter to his drive show, Ekwanso Dwoodwoo.
“This response communicated to me that I needed to put more works out and since the gift is to serve humanity, I proceeded to work on this EP,” he says, adding: “I also observed that there are very few Spoken Word acts who have collections out. I wanted to set the pace in that regard. I believe this will be an encouragement to younger voices.”
A final year Theatre Arts student at the University of Ghana, Onwanwani stresses how much the EP means to him as it allows him to “to fulfil the needs of the many lovers of my craft.”
Amazement benefits from production by Positive Line Music, Knii Lantɛi, and Nii Soul. It is live across all digital stores, including iTunes
