Different themes appeal to different musicians and for new artistes, Akyekyerefoo, it is the need for the youth to be humble and eschew arrogance that has touched their hearts to preach about.
That desire inspired their new track, Gyae Huhu which officially comes out on Friday, December 5. Produced by DR Ray of Globewaves Studios at Agbogba in Accra, Gyae Huhu is the group’s second single after I No Dey Mind which came out last year.
Gyae Huhu dwells on the need for people to find solace in humility irrespective of their status since pride had always preceded the fall of many great people.
Trained teachers by profession, Okyerekyereni Makorni (Richard Nartey) and Okyerekyereni Sparkles (Ranford Saltson) told Showbiz that they were inspired to touch on pride in their song because their daily encounters with people revealed how arrogant people had become.
“Music is a powerful tool of communication. As musicians, we are not just entertainers but people who must use our exposure for the benefit of society. Akyerekyerefo are here to help instill discipline and the values we have lost as a country.”
Signed to Bakus Entertaiment, a United States-based record label with subsidiary in Ghana, Akyerekyerefo hope to make a great mark in the industry business.
Yaw Agbey-Lawson, the group’s manager was confident that Akyerekyerefoo will face off the stiff competition in the industry by producing good music to stand the test of time.
