Published

Bafowaa 02 2021 1654107886 983298415 1654107886 818039548

Emerging American-Ghanaian independent recording artist, Bafowaa is known for her fierce, resilient, and powerful vocal offering influenced by the likes of Whitney Houston and Maria Carey.

In 2019, Bafowaa, who has been in the States since she was 6, made the conscious decision to return to her homeland of Ghana.

With the release of her first two singles “Fam Pin” and “Chaskele”, she is switching things up sonically with the distinct vocal style which is highly influenced by Western culture fused with the African vibe.

Artists like Angèlique Kidjo, Sho Madjozi, Sungi Mlengeya, Amaarae, and Aša, have continued to take the world by storm in the last 10 years, and there’s no shortage of up-and-comers ready to follow their footsteps or create their paths.

Joining voices with the myriads of female artists who continue to put African music on the map is Wendy Bafowaa Hanson, known professionally as Bafowaa moved back to Ghana in 2019.

In talking more about herself she revealed, “My sound is like a fusion of Afrobeats, R&B — just anything with a vibe. I feel like I’m bringing a new style to our music here in Ghana.

I feel like most of the girls do a one-way type of music, but I’m bringing different dimensions. I’m a rapper too. Just adding different elements to my music and making an impact across Africa, particularly Ghana hopefully.

She further stated, “I love most of the male artists, I love King Promise and KiDi. But, the female artist that I am more gravitated toward is the late Ebony. I love her and Gyakie too.

As she readies to serenade us with an upcoming EP soon, Bafowaa expounded, “This EP is different from my last one. Though we haven’t come up with a title yet, the title we think we want is Games People Play.

Published

A young Ghanaian man narrated a sad incident that happened in his life last year, when he was deported from Canada, just right after he arrived at the airport.

In a video cited on the RIDE AND CHAT YouTube channel, he shared how he had managed to save up to 60,000 Ghana Cedi before the idea of travelling and working outside the country started. He spoke to a group of people he believed were into travel documentation. The trip was organized and then he left Ghana, but things went sour for him upon arrival at the Canada airport, he called the person who was supposed to come to pick him up. To his surprise, the person didn’t pick up his calls.

He continued by saying, he became stranded and didn’t know what to do since that was his first time travelling out of Ghana. While he was at the airport looking stranded, the security team worked with him and interrogated him. The security team even proceeded to help him reach the person who was supposed to pick him up, but he didn’t pick up.

The only option was for him to be deported, but ever since he arrived in Ghana, things haven’t been easy for him. It took prayers and the timely intervention of his pastor that saved him from committing suicide after he had mixed batteries to drink.
