Everybody wondered where the Nana Quame disappeared to after bringing out some great his in the early days of his career as a highlife artiste.
He dropped in and out of the music scene with a couple other albums (Yâ€™ate, Odo Shock, Awo de me, Atia Donko, and Soldier) in between, but none as good as that which he started with.
Nana Quame, a product of Preseco in Teshie Nungua has graced the music industry with his vocal presence ever since he completed his secondary education.
His is simply a life of music. Nana Quame sees himself primarily as a highlife artiste and although, he has been hiding away in the UK to work on his compositions heâ€™s been recording in studios right here in Ghana with Zapp Mallet, Apietus, AB and Kaywaa.
Now he completed works on his masterpiece, bringing with it â€œPowerâ€. (Maybe the album title was inspired by the current power predicament in the country or maybe not).
He told us what the name meant to him and why he chose to title the album as such.
With â€˜Powerâ€™, he believes that in music, â€œI am powerful. Iâ€™ve got a very powerful voice when it comes to musicâ€¦ so basically with this album I wanted to tell people how powerful I am when it comes to music.â€
The 15-tracked album (8 tracks on the cassette) featuring KK Fosu, Snooky, Nana Batti, and Nana Antwi will come out on the market in a month or less. By early October, â€œPowerâ€ should be on every music shelf nation wide.
Interestingly, his new management, Universal Entertainment is using this album for charity. They are finding a way to give back to society having been given so much by the Ghanaian fans. S
o hereâ€™s what they are doing, explains Nana: â€œWhen you take a very close look, it looks like musician are not really contributing to the system so we feel this is the time for someone to take that stepâ€¦ In every nation the strength of the people is how well or strong the people are and water is one of the biggest problems we have in the villages and we plan getting them some boreholes.
We have some 10 villages we are trying to help and we plan raising funds to get them these boreholes. So this album is for charity.â€
If thatâ€™s not a noble gesture by Universal Entertainment, I donâ€™t know what is. Ours ears are on the ground waiting for â€œPowerâ€™sâ€ release.
