Amandzeba to celebrate 25 years of Wɔgbɛ  Dzɛkɛ

When a song is well produced, it never gets old and renowned Highlife musician Amandzeba can proudly boast of his Wɔgbɛ  Dzɛkɛ as one of such songs that has survived the test of time.


Come next year, the versatile singer will be celebrating 25 years of Wɔgbɛ Dzɛkɛ and he says it with all joy because he knows the impact the song has made all these years. 

“Through Wɔgbɛ Dzɛkɛ, I have had the opportunity to travel around the world and performed at different festivals. After explaining the lyrics of the song to some white folks, I was invited to lecture at Israel in some Jewish schools and also been to other foreign countries because of this same song.

“Anytime Wɔgbɛ Dzɛkɛ is played, it feels like it was just recorded and that is because of good production. From instrumentation, lyrics, arrangement and all the components that make a good song is in there. I don’t regret spending so much on this production because it is still paying off. Anywhere the song is played, everyone loves it and I feel fulfilled that it belongs to me. 

“Next year, Wɔgbɛ Dzɛkɛ will be 25 years and I intend to celebrate it big time because it has chalked a lot of successes. I want to thank Kwame Yeboah for recording such a wonderful piece” he told Daily Graphic in an interview. 

Talking about the 25th milestone celebration, Amandzeba said a lot of choir groups and individuals have done renditions of the song and he will give such people the opportunity to perform at a concert he is planning with his team.

“It is going to be very interactive and interesting because I have quite a number of personalities who love Wɔgbɛ Dzɛkɛ to bit. I will also give individuals who want to sing the song the opportunity to do so” he revealed.

Amandzeba is all about doing positive music and he says whenever he hits the studio, all he thinks about is projecting Africa first and that has made his songs stand tall.

“Whenever I am writing a song, it is about telling the African story and that makes the song rich and authentic.  If I am even writing a love song, I want to use local names like Ama, Akosua and not use an English name. I have songs like Dede, Ama and I am proud of such African names.  Great songs are timeless and I am delighted to know that the youth still love Highlife music” he stated.
