A female cast (probably Nicole Beharie) who wasn’t perfect at the language tried to read Twi at a library to cast out a demon.

Kojo Antwi’s music gets lady out of coma, prevented suicide

kojo antwi

Apart its exceptionally strong romantic appeal, music by Kojo Antwi is also therapeutic.

Celebrated for his music excellence, Kojo Antwi, popularly known as ‘Mr Music Man’, has revealed that his songs helped get a lady out of a coma.

The man, who says he was sent by God to do music, revealed in an interview on the Super Morning Show on Joy FM with Daniel Dadzie that a lady confessed to him that his music helped her while she was in a coma.

“I met a lady who said she was in a coma and what her parents did was to have headphones on her and they kept playing my music to her while she was in the hospital because her parents knew she was so much into my music,” the ‘Adiepena’ hitmaker said.

Kojo Antwi added that “…she had those headphones [on] even though she couldn’t hear you, she couldn’t feel anything…as part of the treatment, they kept playing my music to her all the time. So she met me and [told] me the story.”

That was not the only occasion on which his music saved a life.

‘Mr Music Man’ said last year, an actor in Kumasi nearly committed suicide but “’Sikadam’ did magic,” prevented that from happening.

Kojo Antwi will thrilling patrons of the Joy FM Lovers Dinner Dance.

The Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City will come alive Thursday night, February 14, as hundreds of couples will dance to classic tunes like ‘Amirika’, ‘Nfa Me Nko Ho’, ‘Densu’, ‘Adiepena’, ‘Me Dee Ne Wo A’, ‘Odo Ano Wappi’, ‘Medofo Pa’, ‘Dadie Anoma’, ‘Me Nya Ntaban A’ and host of others from the music maestro. 

Patrons of the event will enjoy a night of good music, which will be a blend of Ghanaian highlife, Congolese soukous, Caribbean lovers rock, with a dash of African American soul and R&B.

His impressive catalogue of albums also include ‘Anokye’ (1989), ‘Groovy’ (1994), ‘Mr Music Man’ (1992), ‘To Mother Afrika’ (1995), ‘Superman’ (1998), ‘Afrafra’ (1999), ‘Don’t Stop the Music’ (2000), ‘Akuaba’ (2000), ‘Densu’ (2002), ‘Alpha’ (Compilation) (2003) ‘Tattoo’ (2006), and ‘Mwaaah!’ (2009).

“Tonight we are going to celebrate love,” the music maestro has promise patrons.

For a cool ?800 (regular) and ?1000 (VIP) per couple or ?400 (single regular) and ?500 (single VIP) – dressed in anything nice with a touch of red -, a cliquey atmosphere of music, good food, drinks and people awaits lovers on Valentine’s Day with Mr Music Man.

EXCLUSIVE: Rocky Dawuni announces new Album, #BeatsOfZion. Drops 1st single off album on January 25.

rocky dawuni

BEATS OF ZION  IS OUT MARCH 8, 2019 THROUGH SIX DEGREES DISTRIBUTION.
Rocky Dawuni, the international music star/global ambassador and humanitarian activist, announces the release of his highly anticipated 7thstudio album Beats of Zion, out March 8th, 2019 via Six Degrees Distribution. The thirteen-track set follows the GRAMMYnominated album Branches of the Same Tree,(“Best Reggae Album” in 2016) and expands Rocky’s “Afro Roots” sound to include the diversity of the Ghanaian music scene and its current global outreach.

Although Rocky’s music has had CNNnaming him “Africa’s Top 10 global stars” and Ziggy Marleystating “Rocky’s music is creative inspiration that knows no boundaries,” it’s only one part of what drives his mass appeal. Dawuni’s eloquence, cultural diplomacy and passionate activism have led him to become a moving spokesperson for various global causes. Recently, Rocky was designated a UN Goodwill Ambassadorfor Africa at a beautiful concert at the UN Headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya in August 2018 held during the Global Landscapes Forum with dignitaries from all over the world. 
This is on top of the social campaigns and activism he’s done including work with Product (RED), ONE, UNICEF, The Carter Center, Clean Cooking Alliance and the United Nations Foundation. Additionally, with UNESCO’s recent designation of Reggae music as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, Rocky Dawuni represents one of the leading African global voices of Reggae.

Rocky’s travels around the world helped shape the new album Beats of Zion. He elaborates, “Beats of Zionwas born out of my desire to use my diverse global musical influences and exposure to various traditions to paint a multi-cultural musical vision of the world that I perceive. The beginning of the year saw me visit Ethiopia and India. In Ethiopia, I visited Lalibela, witnessing ancient Christian rites and my journeys in India also exposed me to its diverse spiritual culture and the shared similarities I saw to Africa.” He adds, “The title Beats of Zion” is  inspired by a vision of the drumbeat of awareness and elevation of consciousness; a musical call to arms for my audience to be proactive in this day and age as to each person’s responsibility to be an active instrument for positive change.”

The album was recorded in the span of almost 2 years in various studios in Accra, Nairobi and Los Angeles. In LA, Rocky was gifted studio time at the legendary Village Studios that has recorded the most influential artists including Bob Dylan, Elton John, The Rolling Stones, John Lennon, and Fleetwood Mac. Rocky ended up recording in the same studio room that Fleetwood Mac used and created the magic of the title track and “Wickedest Sound.” Rocky found out that Fleetwood Mac were one of the memorable American classic rock bands to visit Ghana in the 1970s making the experience more special and inspired the Ghanaian traditional highlife song “Kyenkyen Bi Adi Mawu” as a homage to his heritage. These 3 tracks recorded at Village Studios kicked off the entire album making process.

The title track and lead single “Beats of Zion” came out well from the Village Studios session, but was missing something on the drum tracking. Rocky states, “We travelled to Zanzibar for a concert shortly after the recording session. At the time, I was still wanting the full African tribal effect that I had imagined. On the eve of my concert at the amazing Sauti za Busara Festival, we saw Batimbo Percussion Magique of Burundi mount the stage and blow the minds of everyone in the audience. I turned to my manager; Cary Sullivan who was also watching and we thought the same – ‘these are the guys for Beats of Zion’ and so the story unfolded.” The lead single will also have an accompanying video due out January 25th. “Wickedest Sound” is another song that speaks volumes, featuring Ghanaian dancehall star Stonebwoy. 
The track combines elements of modern Afrobeats with Reggae music. With production paying homage to the organic recordings of classic Highlife music, it also combines a groove driven melodic approach with the traditional call and response style of singing.

“Kyenkyen Bi Adi Mawu” is a sprawling remake of the Highlife classic originally recorded by Ghanaian maestro K. Frimpong. This re-imagined version pays homage to Rocky’s Ghanaian legacy and he brought in an international cast of musicians from the US, Belize, Cuba, Ghana and Brazil to expand the traditional sound boundaries of this track. 
Ghanaian lyricist Sarkodie’s rap melds current traditional pop elements to make this song an opus of sounds, harmonies and sweet melodies. “Let’s Go” fuses pop sensibilities, Reggae and the grooves of New Orleans to create a feel good anthem of forward mobility and positive vibrations. The hand claps add an organic Gospel feel to this exhilarating song. Other tracks that show more dimensions to the album include the Cumbia inspired dancehall track “Freedom Train” featuring Argentinian Dancehall star Alika  and “Burn One” that is an homage to the social transformative power of the legalization of marijuana in the spheres of medicine, recreational use and as a primary tool for economic emancipation. 
There will be beautiful high quality videos coming out for many of the tracks on the album including “Elevation” which was shot on location in southern India. It is an inspirational groove filled with a message of hope and uses the traditional Rastafarian Nyabinghi sounds. “Champion Arise,”a track that easily fits into the current roots reggae revival sound, paints a spiritual picture with biblical imagery and inspirational lyrics about spiritual warfare for the upliftment of all people. 
The diversity and features found on the new album are in step with Rocky’s vision of constantly evolving the boundaries of his sounds and expanding its global palettes and reach.In a time when divisive rhetoric is on the rise and the political climate prefers to build walls over bridges, Rocky’s album Beats of Zionis a refreshing message about global unity and a worldview of oneness. Rocky passionately states, “We live in a time when the elements of international morality need to be proclaimed as a guiding principle for how we engage and deal with each other, between individuals, between communities and among nations. 
It is a time for global mobilization for action on challenging socio-political issues like the environment and the refugee crisis. Beats of Zionis the drumbeat of war against apathy and re-energizing the forces of love and hope.” He concludes, “Beats of Zionis the rhythm of change beating from a distance and getting louder to awaken positive consciousness.” ###

Zylofon Arts Fund And Ghana Models Union Of Ghana Signs Partnership Deal

3rd of October, 2018 saw the birth of a partnership between Zylofon Arts Fund (ZAF) and Models Union Of Ghana(MODUGA) to promote, market, sell and protect film, music and other creative contents on the market.

The Ghanaian film industry is one that has the capacity to contribute meaningfully to the economy of Ghana and change the narrative of the culture of Ghanaians both home and abroad.

Unfortunately, the Ghana film industry has commercially experienced a downward trend for the past 10 years as such, industry experts and practitioners have yearned for an upward improvement but with no avail.

Zylofon Arts Fun, a subsidiary of Zylofon Group and an NGO, have for the past months into existence have invested heavily into the film industry to experience the advent of a booming Ghanaian film industry and the high spirit of movie delivery to a success.

Indeed, the ZAF Board has been working tirelessly to revamp the Creative Arts Industry by creating jobs, providing the enabling environment and build the required structures to let Ghana Film Producers produce quality movies to market, distribute and sell to generate decent revenues to bring the industry back on track.

As a result of this, ZAF has strategically partnered with Models Union Of Ghana to come together and support the film Industry to facilitate the sale and distribution of hard copies of made in Ghana movies to enable Producers make good income.

 

Nana Brew who handle as Board Member of Zylofon Arts Fund revealed, the partnership between the two institutions comes a long standing of marriage with no divorce ahead.

”There are going to be more initiatives in the coming days, measures have been undertaken to improve quality and security of these DVDs about to go on the market for sales” – he said.

According to him, The models from the union will assist in marketing the movies to complement the efforts of the various ZAF distribution outlets across the country, in exchange for commission based wages.

 

Speaking at the gathering, President for the Models Union of Ghana, Lilian Sally Addo said the initiative was necessary to boost the industry and change negative perception about modelling in Ghana.

Speaking exclusively to thepublisheronline.com, she said the time had come for corporate Ghana to recognize young talented Ghanaian models as better marketers of their brand and potential ambassadors.

“Modelling is not only about wearing skimpy dresses and walking on the runway. There is so much more to it. We have some models doing great things outside the industry and still modelling, so you don’t only have to take pictures and put it on social media,” she said.

 

She added, “Modelling is more than that and we need to get people to take us more seriously. This collaboration will be used to set standards and also connect all the modelling agencies across the 10 regions. Now that there is an umbrella body, models, agents and agencies can all work together, and the outstanding ones will be recognized so others are encouraged.”

FLASHBACK: I paid $25, 000 as bride price for Pokello – Elikem Kumordzie

elikem

This article was originally published on June 23, 2015

After several speculations about Elikem’s marriage to the love of his life, Peacefmonline.com has exclusive details of what really happened in Zimbabwe over the weekend in the official Polikem union.

In an exclusive interview with Peacefmonline.com this morning, Elikem Kumordzi the Tailor confirmed that he has indeed gotten married to Pokello Nare.

According to Elikem, the very private traditional marriage ceremony took place far away in Zimbabwe on Saturday June 20.

“I paid a lot of money and before you pay such money for a lady’s hand in marriage you have to be sure she’s the one. Otherwise you will be a silly young man throwing a lot of money away. So it feels good to be married to the right woman. It feels amazing. No mistakes or regrets whatsoever”, Elikem revealed.

Asked how much he paid as bride price for Pokello, Elikem was a bit reluctant in his response but finally agreed to give Peacefmonline.com those exclusive details, because according to him, people are mentioning wrong figures all over so he wants to use the opportunity to correct that.

“I initially didn’t want to make this information public but people are getting figures wrong so I want to correct it. The lobola (Bride price for a traditional marriage in Zimbabwe) was 25,000 US Dollars. A deposit of 20,000 US Dollars was paid on Saturday and the 5,000 US Dollars balance is to be paid by the white wedding”.

The Ghanaian Actor/ Fashion Designer said, according to Zimbabwean culture, a couple waits for months or even years before their white wedding, so the date for their white wedding is not known yet. He however indicated that the white wedding would take place both in Zimbabwe and Ghana on separate dates.

The former BBA housemate added that it was humbling to see members of both families come together to witness and bless such a beautiful union. Among those who flew with Elikem from Ghana to Zimbabwe were his mother, his grandmother, his brothers, cousins, his sister, his spiritual father Elder Maxwell and a few close friends. Also in attendance was Ghana’s ambassador to Zimbabwe His Excellency Mr. Sylvanus Tamakloe.

The new couple is currently at a secret location spending some quality time together before they head back to Accra.

Elikem met Pokello (now his wife) who was representing Zimbabwe during his time in the Big Brother Africa 2013 house in South Africa and the two have been in love since then. After being together for almost a year, he proposed to his Zimbabwean girlfriend publicly at last year’s Ghana Music Awards when they went on stage to present an award.

After their public show of love with that romantic proposal on national television the love birds were hit with a number of scandals including allegations that Elikem was having secret romantic affair with ex-wife of former Black Stars player Odartey Lamtey and there were several rumors that Polikem had separated but they came out to deny on most occasions. Perhaps their marriage would end it all.

The organisers told Beatwaves: “There is security on the ground and we have various experienced people among the team to take care of the children who will attend the event. We want this to be a party for the children. There will be a lot of drinks and food”.

They added that the event is going to be more fun and enjoyable, urging parents and children to be part of the excitement.

The organisers disclosed plans of collaborating with some of the country’s finest music icons to host a series of musical concerts in five regional capitals to raise funds to support needy, brilliant children in the country.

They revealed that in addition to the concert, the artistes would embark on an educational campaign tour to encourage students to learn and study very well to become influential people in society, despite the conditions they find themselves in.

“We want to help the less-privileged children in acquiring knowledge because knowledge is power and education is the key to success. Education breeds respect, enhances the chances of better living. Therefore, with our contribution, the needy can gain the knowledge to live a better life”, they added.
