 His name may not immediately ring a bell in the Ghanaian music circles but rising dancehall artiste, Quame Decash, made a subtle impression with his two singles, This Girl and Thank You, in 2013.

Quame Decash who early this year released a new single, Don’t You Know featuring BET International africa Act  winner, Stonebwoy  is poised to get some attention with his music this time around. And according to the former student of Somanya Secondary School , “it’s my time to shine”.

“It’s been a long journey since childhood until 2013 when I got signed on to D Cryme’s Twi Pop Records label. They helped me to get some attention but I hope to take my career to the next level,” Quame Decash told Showbiz on Monday.

 

The road to accomplish his dream of becoming one of the big names, according to Quame Decash, real name, Otiboe Paul Tetteh, has begun with his new record label deal with Big Benzy Entertainment owned by Mr Ofosu K Ebenezer.

“I know that success doesn’t come on a silver platter but with hard work, perseverance, good stuff and support from my record label, I know that I will surely shine.

“This is not to say that my first record label, Twi Pop, didn’t give me the needed assistance. I will forever be grateful to them for giving me the platform to let Ghanaians have a taste of my talent,” he stated.

Quame, who describes himself as the “Dancehall Vibrator” has worked with the likes of Screwface, Dr Cryme, Ephraim, Keche and Stonebwoy Burniton said despite the big names that parade the dancehall front, he has what it takes to beat off the competition.

 Like the dream of every young artiste, the Tema based artiste who honed his musical skills back in his junior high school days at the Michel Camp One Junior Secondary School said he is looking forward to the day he would  perform on big international platforms such as the MAMAs and BET awards.
