The Ghanaian music scene has in recent years seen some young talents who are hungry to be successful at home, Africa and the world at large.
Names such as Bisa Kdei, Wiyaala, Stonebwoy among others readily come to mind. And one such artiste, who believes he has also got what it takes to attract audiences in Ghana and beyond with his music is Mclerk.
For one who has had two failed attempts to get some recognition with his earlier songs, Monica and I Don’t Know, which featured M.B from Cameroon, it is just appropriate that Mclerk calls his latest song, Grace.
Mclerk, real name, Sulemanu Mohammed, a product of Cape Coast Technical Institute, who describes himself as a versatile artiste, hopes to get some spotlight with Grace which was recorded and produced by Mix Masta Garzy.
With inspiring lyrics, Grace explores the need for people to appreciate the essence of God’s grace in their lives.
For him, the everlasting mercies of God upon mankind should be an opportunity for Christians to appreciate God’s “graceful nature”.
He sings about how his enemies seek his downfall but he always comes out victorious despite the many challenging situations he finds himself because “prayer is his tool to defeat the enemy”.
Although instrumentation and lyrics of Grace earned him some good marks for a young artiste, Mclerk would need to work on his voice which was obviously a minus.
He told Showbiz that he has not got a charming voice but was not perturbed because he has got great messages to attract his listeners to his songs.
“I have done other genres of music like hiplife and highlife but I think that it is worth praising our Maker for all the good things he does for me. That was the inspiration behind Grace,” he said.
He attributed his “slow” rise to fame to the absence of a management team to handle his music career.
But for now, Mclerk can heave a sigh of relief because Creative Storm Entertainment is ready to push him to the greatest height of his career.
