Okomfour Kwaadee

Agya Koo - Ghanaian films (movies) are back!

...Sounds on da ground and seens on the see-ins

When I first heard about the 'Ka wo nan to so' movie, the first thing that came to my mind was Okomfour Kwaadee's song of the same name. It warmed my heart to think that the work of hiplife artistes was making its way into the film and movie industry. Once I got to Ghana and saw the many flyers and posters for Ghanaian movies, I had to watch 'Ka wo nan to so' to satisfy my curiosity. The soundtrack was not Kwaadee's 2006 hit and I discovered something else - Agya Koo. He's not exactly the one Praye sings about in their Agya Koo song either. Meet Kofi Adu, the guy leading the surge of Ghanaian films getting back on the market.


P1 (Class 1) - Making sure everybody goes to school

It's that time of year again; first-year students are thronging the campuses of Tech (KNUST), Legon, UCC, etc while last-year senior secondary students have just completed their SSCE exams. Inevitably, some students would fail to make the cut to enter the tertiary institutions and this realisation hit me when I was listening to Okomfo Kwaadee's 'P1', a song on his latest album, 'Nsem pii'. P1 stands for 'primary 1' or the very first year in elementary school. Take a moment to think about the number of youth in Ghana who will be unable to go to school because they are unable to pay. And picture what the idle minds and hands are doing with their time.


Efie nipa - idle minds and working hands

Almost every month, we hear about workers' strikes, people calling for increased wages, better terms of service, etc, etc. These calls come from the brains that make our economies tick - the doctors, the lecturers, the civil servants, etc. Granted, the cost of living in Ghana is high and the wages of the middle-class do not seem to allow for a good standard of living. However, what about the Ghanaians who have no jobs? And those who have jobs which do not necessarily exercise their brains but keep their hands busy? Have we stopped to think about what our idle minds are up to these days? This realization hit me when I was listening to Okomfo Kwaadee's 'Efie nipa' recently. It shouldn't surprise you to hear the lyrics of the voice of the streets which is increasingly becoming Okomfo Kwaadee's tag.
