Today is Friday. Today is Zylofon Media signee, arguably one of Ghana’s finest, multiple awards winning songstress BECCA’s album listening session with the media at Carbon Nite Club in Accra, Ghana with support from Hennessey. Nigeria’s DJ Spinal and Ghana’s finest, DJ Vyrusky and DJ Sam Sheldon, we hear would be on ground to rock listeners’ boats all evening.
Don’t forget that she has been in this game for ten solid years and of course; she is an ‘old dog with strong teeth’ now. Ytainment has been privileged to listen to all the thirteen songs in the ‘UNVEILING’ album – and must confess that truly, Akosua is a firm grown woman.
Having known this artiste for a long time, we can authoritatively say that her prolific and hardworking curriculum vita presents itself as overwhelming as ever – every time. This new album according to the music aficionados that spoke with us, sums that, ‘UNVEILING’ displays maturity and understanding of the fast evolving African music industry; therein, Becca touches a different genre of music on every track, from Highlife, RnB, Dancehall, Soul and…Gospel.
