Charles Nutifafa Morttey, known in showbiz circles as Ghana-Pac, had been an underground artiste for a while but with some singles under his name out there in the public domain, he believes the time has come for him to achieve the fame he deserves with his music.
He had always dreamt of securing the appropriate platforms to showcase his talents to the world and Ghana-Pac blesses his stars for the chance to feature the great rapper, Sarkodie on his single called Party Time.
The song will be included on his upcoming album produced by Zapp Mallet. Party Time has come after Ghana-Pac’s maiden single called Akosua Kuma which did not make much of an impact due to promotional challenges.
Other songs on the Party Time album include Victim, Tears and Pains, My Woman, Poor Party and Abrantie. The Victim video has been on some of our television networks for some time now and it talks about the artist’s personal life.
“It is conscious music for the oppressed in our society,” Ghana-Pac says.
Though Ghana-Pac has embraced a variety of musical influences, he leans heavily towards dancehall.
He combines beautifully with Sarkodie on Party Time which is rendered on a mid-tempo beat in Pidgen English and Akan. The song has a catchy arrangement with chorus easy to sing along to.
He is a confident artiste proud of his versatility and says music lovers would see what he is truly made of when his album comes out.
Ghana-Pac, who is signed to Williams ‘Rhymes’ Asante’s Rhyme Entertainment, started dabbling in music during his days at Osudoku Secondary Technical School, Osu in Accra. He formed a group called Triple K with two of his friends to do dancehall.
He went solo when he realised that his colleagues were not committed to the course.
Meanwhile, Ghana-Pac has appealed to presenters on Ghana’s radio stations to help promote Ghanaian artistes just like they do for foreign acts, especially Nigerians.
According to him, up-and-coming artistes find it tough raising money for airplay of their songs and radio presenters must not frustrate their efforts.
“Money is hard to come by these days so exacting cash from new artistes and not playing their music on air is wicked, barbaric and dangerous,” he says.
