Mesharck Afotey Akueteh (born April 30, 1991) is a Ghanaian-born musician, actor and a video editor known by the stage name, Ninepence.
His best-known songs are “Dormi & Frema”- well-cooked hit singles which have led Ninepence to be nominated in the Highlife song of the Year category of the 2019 edition of the Ashaiman Music Awards.
Judging from the genres which gave him some mileage and spotlight in the industry, Ninepence is very affluent in the Highlife, Afropop and hiplife genres but can equally deliver in several other genres.
When asked why he chose music, specifically Highlife music, he disclosed, “Music is part of me since childhood and I can’t do without music in life because Highlife songs really resound so deeply in my heart anytime I’m listening to different genres of music”.
He takes inspiration from the likes of Ghanaian music legends, Ofori Amponsah and Kojo Antwi.
Concerning his recent nominations and ongoing voting in the 2019 Ashaiman Music Awards, he besieged fans and Ghanaians in general, “Just praying to God and also begging the fans out there to help support by continually voting for me to win the best Highlife song of the 2019 edition of the awards scheme and I will be so glad because it’s my first time being nominated on this platform yh”.
He entreated fans to expect another single release with the title Odo within a short time from the camp of Ninepence.
