Zakes Bantwini Tells Apple Music About His Album, ‘The Star Is Reborn’
My album ‘The Star Is Reborn’ is like a continuation of my last album, ‘Ghetto King.’ I feel like sonically it’s more or less like an extension of that album because that sound I’m still exploring. On that album, ‘Ghetto King,’ it was an introduction to the way Afrohouse and Afrotech – the music, the way now it’s sounding – and I felt like there was still a lot of instruments I still want to use in the sound, so the extension of that culminated in ‘The Star Is Reborn.’
Zakes Bantwini Tells Apple Music How Artists Like Tyla Can Influence South African Performers
When you look at artists now like Tyla… I feel like audiences need to see a performance and in South Africa we don’t get to see a performance a lot, because most people who are happening in South Africa have to stand behind the decks, because the music is carried by DJs in South Africa and I think that needs to change. We still need to find more artists performing dances, really doing something amazing and that’s why Tyla is so important. She’s saying “Hey” to the world, “We are South Africans and we perform like this.” That’s why I’m loving what is happening right now.

12 years old Ghanaian Nicholas Boamah premieres first TV show
U.S.-based Ghanaian, Nicholas Buamah Continues To Wow Audience
12-year-old Nicholas Buamah has recently set the internet ablaze with the premiere of his new TV show, “Nick’s House.”
The much anticipated pilot episode lived up to expectations, delivering both a blend of humor and wholesomeness. Nicholas, whose father hails from Ghana, infused elements of the Ghanaian culture into the TV sitcom, evident in the incorporation of the Twi language. Hollywood actor Som Aidoo, portraying Nicholas’s father on the show and a native of Ghana, seamlessly embraced the Ghanaian dialect, contributing to the authenticity of ‘Nick’s House.’
Nicholas’s journey into the world of storytelling began at the age of 7 when he published his first book, “Kayla & Kyle: The Walking Dictionaries, Election Day.” This marked the inception of a passion that led him to publish two additional books. As his love for writing blossomed, he envisioned creating a scripted show. Collaborating with his mother, Danielle, Nicholas enlisted the expertise of professional writers and producers to bring this remarkable project to life.
Although presented with offers from different platforms to feature “Nick’s House,” Nicholas and his mother opted to release it independently, ensuring accessibility to a global audience. Nicholas says that he’s looking forward to filming an episode or two of “Nick’s House” in Ghana in 2024.
Nicholas is credited as the creator, writer, and star of the show. He invites everyone to watch the pilot episode on MotherHubbard.TV or YouTube.com.
