IT’S been five years since Rino TheSinger dropped his maiden song, Odo Ntoma and since then, he has been announcing the release of a video for the song but that had tarried due to financial constraints. The wait is however over and Rino TheSinger, a graduate of the University of Professional Studies is happy to finally outdoor his first video.
Released on Wednesday, May 11, the video shot by Mic Paul GH narrates a beautiful story of love of a young couple where the man whole-heartedly expresses his true affections to his woman. According to Rino TheSinger, real name is Gilbert Boateng, the song, produced by Mr Leham, is intended to celebrate the Ghanaian way of love.
He explained that the video of Odo Ntoma is crafted to bring life to marriage ceremonies by displaying Ghana’s rich culture through costumes. “Traditional wax print or cloth known as ntoma in the Akan language is very common and an important aspect at Ghanaian marriages and as an African man, the best way to show how much I cherish my partner is to make her my wife.
So in essence, I want to encourage men to cover their women with true love,” he said. The beautiful display of #Ntoma (cloth) during a marriage ceremony is a thing of art and a sight to see during a Ghanaian marriage ceremony. The Ghanaian way a man shows his #Odo (love) to someone he cherish is to marry her. The lack of investment in the music industry has been a challenge to many up and coming artistes who struggle to fund their music. The situation has not been different for Rino TheSinger, who has been financing his music career from his salary as an accountant at the Graphic Communications Group Limited.
Though the situation has delayed his progress, RinoTheSinger has not been deterred and has dropped a number of songs such as Ma Me Nkwa Tenten, Dadie Anoma (a cover of Kojo’s Antwi’s Dadie Anoma), I Don’t Wanna Stop, Believe, Your Song AN among others to keep him relevant. In a recent interview with Graphic Showbiz, Rino TheSinger, who is at the moment promoting his new song, Go Low, said he is making steady progress with his music career.
