Thankfully, fans of good music have turned out and supported the same man who sang "Susana", "Mehia "Odo", "Akono Akono", "Monto", "Nonum", "Akyekyere Me", "Adene", "Krokro Me", "Akona Yaa" years back when he launched the album in the USA recently.
“Without the fans, I will be nobody. I appreciate their support”, Kwaisey Pee said.
