Jerry Anaba, otherwise called Okomfo Kwaadee may have been in the media for a long time now and for speculative reasons, but he says his imminent show at the National Theatre on October 3 dubbed Mea Me Nie Concert (Here I am), is bound to change that assertion.
OM Music, organisers of the concert and managers of Okomfo Kwaadee, arguably one of Ghana's most entertaining lyricists, say “Every personality comes with its own character and Okomfo is a 'fetish priest' who has been possessed with different spirits.”
They say with every one of Okomfo’s albums comes out a specific image and name. His first album that ooutdoored him as ‘Kwaadee’, will thus yield to his new character and portrait; Kwame Odi Dwεε, (The boastful Kwame). Listen to Menie by Okomfo Kwaadee
Abraham Ohene Djan, Okomfo’s manager admitted in an interview with Myjoyonline that “Okomfo has been suffering from bodily pains which kept him away from the music scene for some time but he is very fit to perform.”
He said to refute public speculations about his health, (albeit claims that he suffered mental challenges), Okomfo has dedicated a song on his new album ‘Am running’ which talks about the pains he has gone through over the years to address the issue and the concert is “to tell the public that he is well enough to perform and continue doing his music.”
The eight track album ‘Mea Me Nie’ has songs like; ‘Am running’, ‘Ma ti edi’, ‘Yaa Pompo’, ‘Hold on’ and ‘Mea Me Nie’ which has a video already out and the album will be released at the concert on October 3 at the National Theatre. Watch Menie by Okomfo Kwaadee
The manager also says fans will see a different Okomfo in his current album because he is introducing more dancehall into the songs. “There is more dancehall in this album and every time he does a new album, a new character will come with it”, Abraham Ohene Djan told Myjoyonline.com.
Artistes billed to perform at the concert include, Bradez, Kwaw Kese, Okyeame Kwame, Asem and OJ Blaq.
OM Music hopes to replicate the concert in Kumasi, Takoradi, Tamale, Wa and Bolgatanga.
