Never under estimate the words of Presenters, DJ’s and show producers when they say, ‘if a song is good we will air it for all to hear’, that was the way ‘Aha Yede’ by Nana Buroo was handled.
The song was good, the timing was so right and the engineer, we believe was Killbeatz; he did a thumbs up work on that song, but what about SK Blinks, his input could not have been left out, so perfect. Listen to Aha Yede by Nana Boroo featuring SK Blinks
But once a upon a time in the history of Ghanaian music, there lived the quick hit makers whose hit song was well received in the industry but they could not sustain their level of success in the game after being Blessed with a single hit.
Nana Boroo unlike other musicians in the hipliife game paid very little in terms of dues (Hustling to find rhythm) in the industry, while others went through ‘hell’ from DJ’s and radio station presenters, he on the other hand had it a bit smoothly.
The radio stations in and outside the capital jammed the song to the fullest, giving it, it’s needed airplay just because after playing it once, the demand for that song goes high by listeners.
So the hit was not seen coming; the industry game was very open and from no were came the song “Aha Yede” by Nana Boroo featuring S. K. Blinks.
The very first time “Voice of Mid Morning Accra” Sammy Forson played that tune, he introduced it as the official song for the Easter Festivities and that, was the truth, “Aha Yede” by Boroo, instantly became a hit, a popular tune nobody dare went against in April.
Nana Boroo won the harden hearts of Ghanaian music lovers who will not easily move to a swift beat, even when it is danceable just because the artiste is in question is new.
The artiste became hot in the game, there was no event that did not have his ‘TAG’, the song was used for majority of voice overs in the country, for once, we saw a particular network using a song constantly, during their promotion.
But more was expected from Nana Buroo, all the stages Nana Buroo performed on during his hit days, have all being ‘CRAP’. His stage performances are nothing to write home about, and at certain times his appearance has also been a problem apart from his appearance during the GMA’s, the TV3 festival train inside the central region was bad.
Apart from his sleaze performance what else will make Nana Buroo survive the music industry. We have witnessed a lot of other artistes having a break through with a hit single and not following it up with other hits.
After several months of great success with a hit single, Nana Boroo, is likely to join to the trace of ‘Deeba’, Keteke, G-life, Jay D (the highlander) among others, who have nothing to show after a great success with a hit breakthrough, if he does not prove his critics wrong.
Does this also confirm the fact that the artiste in question, Nana Boroo is not a musician but can be described as someone who has love and desired to be like his role models?
His reign as a musician is over; the new single is doing so bad with air play as compared to the first one. What will do the magic for him with his second single, a song he sang on ETV’s late night celebrity show, formally known as celebrity soccer show.
Well if Deeba, among others are now back and struggling to have a stand in the game because it has change so much and it keeps on growing day in, day out, Nana Boroo should use that as a pillow, it should always serve as a reminder.
