Golden Empire Legacy Limited – a record label which has been in existence since 2016 – disclosed the deal during a press unveiling held on Tuesday, April 16, at East Legon, Accra.

The duo was offered a whooping GHC2.5 million (equivalent to USD $500,000) plus three-bedroom apartment and two Hyundai Elantra saloon cars to help them run their day-to-day activities.

The “Diabetes” hitmakers will, aside from their mind-blowing signing on bonus, receive all necessary support to help rejuvenate their career.

According to the C.E.O of Golden Empire Legacy, Joana Gyan, Keche’s deal is intended to uplift the brand and its image, and all the necessary measures to propel their career.

She said the duo were signed because they are valuable assets and that they believe they can recoup their investments by the end of the contract.

The contract which lasts for two years will also see the group’s manager George Britton move to the label.

On the current status of Keche’s former label, GB Recordz, Britton used the phrase ‘it’s been absorbed’ to describe it. Indirectly, it’s been merged with Golden Empire Legacy.

Enforce NFA Law to instill discipline in the creative art industry-actress, Akofa Edjeani called on government!

Published

on

Veteran actress, Ms Akofa Edjeani has called on government to enforce the National Film Authority (NFA) Law to ensure that the art industry is imbibed with ethics without adopting foreign culture.

That, she said would promote the creation of a conducive environment for local production, distribution, exhibition and marketing of films as well as preserving the nation’s culture from foreign invasion.
The actress noted that when the law is passed, it would encourage the use of films to project the identity and culture of Ghana and the way of life of its citizens.
“Now actresses and musicians wear skimpy and body appealing clothes that don’t depict our culture, it is destroying the generation and corrupting the fine system we have,” she stressed.
Speaking with degraftpr.co.uk in Accra on Thursday, the actress who doubles as the Treasurer of Ghana Culture Forum and the Convener of Calabash Arts indicated that culture was the soul of every nation and was therefore relevant in every country’s development, hence the need to preserve it to retain the nation’s heritage.
“A country without culture is a generation with no past knowledge of their history, therefore the generation must be reoriented on the past history of the land,” she added.
Ms Edjeani further stated that culture should not be idolised but rather be deepened for people to be able to distinguish themselves and their region from others since each region had its own peculiar and rich culture.
According to her, should the NFA law be passed, it would go a long way to monitor the art industry to instil discipline whilst also refining the content they produced to the outside world.
Ms Edjeani explained that musicians, actors and actresses are followed by the mass and they have the tendency to change trends, shape and preserve culture, adding that the media should supplement the effort by telecasting 70 percent of the local content and 30 percent of foreign content.
She maintained that the art and culture would be strengthened if the key players come together to promote made-in-Ghana goods to the world and urged parents to speak the local dialect with their wards.

Stop promoting bad songs on air-AK Songstress

Published

on

Ghanaian Reggae and dancehall diva, AK Songstress known in real life as Akosua Kwakye has chided Disc Jockeys (DJs) and other industrial players for promoting bad songs to the public.

According to her, key industrial players have created artistes who craft terrible songs that could not be transported outside the country.

She said some of the artistes were staining the nation’s name and expressed regret that the industry had soft spot for promoting terrible arts to the neglect of real talents that could lift high the nation’s flag internationally.

In an exclusive interview with degraftpr.co.uk in Accra on Sunday, the songstress lamented that the industry had no data to give an investor who wants to invest in quality talent of the country, stressing that each media house has its own chat.

She noted that, local chats that DJs and Presenters give out to the citizenry had no authentic database and described it as ‘payola’ based music chat.

The dancehall goddess called on industry players to be up to task and embrace artistes who have quality talents without sidelining their music.

“DJs are killing good songs in the country simply because talented artistes cannot pay bribes for their music to be played while they and other promoters have imposed some songs and specific artistes on Ghanaians,” she added.

She explained that the industry is not excelling due to the fact that artistes who have quality talents are not recognised in the country but are left to struggle with their fate.

She urged the media to show keen interest in promoting good arts without switching to artistes that the industry had created for the public in the country.

Touching on her VGMA nominations, she observed that women over the years have been sidelined in the secular music arena and called on all women to rally round her to win the award by voting for her.

AK stated that the industry was a male dominated one and would have loved it if there had been category for female reggae dancehall artistes to recognise the few women who have been working hard to compete with their male counterparts.

She pushed forward the agenda that being the only female rubbing shoulders with the men in the reggae dancehall artiste category, by default, makes her the best choice artiste and stressed the need for her to win the award.
