Once again, Tamale-based award-winning rapper Sherif Abdul Majeed aka Maccasio proves to the world his worth as he holds a historic album launch and concert to kickstart the year 2020.

Having started his career in a frenetic mode, the rap prodigy rose to the challenge, and today, he is the most decorated Ghanaian rapper from Northern Ghana.

Since hitting the limelight, Maccasio has redefined how rap content should be passed – with or without a language barrier and audiences’ proclivity for the genre.

Maccasio has consistently delivered alluring, compelling and sizzling rap flow for that past five years.

He, however, ascended the rap throne and sealed his place as Tamale’s biggest rapper of all time on January 4, 2020, when stormed the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium in the Nothern capital to exhibit what he is made of.

With support from a few Tamale stars, Maccasio delivered a raw version of his fourth studio album, titled “Zero 2 Hero”.

The album which contains 14 songs comes with prominent features from top Ghanaian rappers including 2019 VGMA “Rapper of the Year” winner Medikal and NKZ Music label owner Guru.

He kicked off the launch of the album with a football gala among the youth of Tamale on Friday, January 3, at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium.

“His fans have ripped his shirt apart out of excitement so you can’t see him right now,” his personal assistant told journalist David Mawuli on his arrival in Tamale to witness the concert. “If they see him again, they will repeat what they did.”

The ’69 Fans’ is the official fan army solidly behind rapper Maccasio. They were nominated for the 2019 edition of 3Music Awards but lost to Shatta Movement Family despite their massive votes.

Early morning Saturday, January 4, the ’69 Fans’ and admirers of the rapper rallied behind him to organise a huge health walk in anticipation of the album launch and also to seek their physical and mental wellbeing.

The participants also joined other thousands of fans to storm the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium that night to watch the “Dagomba Girl” hitmaker perform a live version of the album.

Before Maacsio’s grand entry, the stage was set ablaze by top Tamale stars including Don Sigli, Fadlan, Wizchild, Sapashini, Gaffachi, Choggu Boys, Flawa, Teflon Flex, Ras Tony, Wumbee, among others.

Maccasio took over the stage at 2 am (Sunday, January 5) to showcase his true and unadulterated talent to the crowd.

He rapped for about 10 minutes without catching a breath – classic showmanship which received a thunderous standing ovation.

From “Money” to “Rap King-Kong”, Maccasio effortlessly drove everyone crazy before closing his electrifying performance with the title song “Zero 2 Hero”.

“This album was made to prove my mettle and also to encourage my fans to keep up the fight,” he said. “Success comes to those who put their mind on the hustle and do away with negativities and setbacks. It doesn’t matter your education background or family status; you can reach the top just like I did with this album.”

Maccasio, who had hard times trying to figure out the right spot during his early days, is now an international star.

In 2018, he won the “Breakout Act of The Year” at 3Music Awards 2018 and the “Most Promising Artiste” at Ghana Music Awards SA. He was nominated for the “Reggae/Dancehall Song of the Year” at VGMA 2019 and won the “Reggae/Dancehall Song of the Year” award at 2019 Ghana Music Awards UK which was held in London.

The premiere of the most anticipated Ghanaian crime action thriller; The Agency, postponed to December 2

Published

The Agency3

We wish to officially announce that Ghana’s most anticipated crime action thriller, The Agency, initially scheduled to premiere on October 1, 2022, has been postponed to December 2, 2022.

This difficult decision became necessary due to some challenges, including a planned renovation by Silverbird Cinemas, commencing two days after the premiere of The Agency movie and lasting about a week. Meaning that subsequent showings of The Agency in the cinema would have to be suspended for the entire duration of the renovation. From a business perspective, this is not prudent as a break in screening would water down the impact we anticipate audience reviews after the premiere will make, while potentially affecting revenue as well. Hence, the need to postpone to a more suitable date.

In considering suitable dates, we had to ensure that the new date was not set too close to or on the same day as any major local or international event and or movie releases. This is also important because it can adversely affect our premiere. After extensive consultations and careful consideration, it became clear that The Agency should premiere in December.

Coincidentally, the National Film Authority called on Cine-God Studios to discuss the Ghana Cinema Week slated for December 2022. The ten (10) day event seeks to revive the Ghanaian cinema culture by encouraging Ghanaians to watch Ghanaian films at various venues across the country. By supporting and participating in this initiative, we get a golden opportunity to access more screens; which means we get to bring the The Agency movie closer to more film lovers across Ghana faster than we initially scheduled.

In all, we believe that this postponement provides an opportunity for us to entertain film lovers without compromising on returns for our investor; a win-win situation.

The Agency is a crime-action thriller movie which tells the story of a very powerful government security agency, which was formed to handle the government’s top-secret operations but which gets corrupted under the leadership of a highly connected female government appointee who uses the agency for back-door business dealings, hence, causing the emergence of a group of highly skilled individuals to embark on a self-sanctioned perilous mission to end the corruption and abuse. It was Executive produced by Amin Ramart and directed by Abu Iddris.

We therefore take the opportunity to apologize for any inconveniences caused and encourage the public to turn out in their numbers on December 2, 2022 for the premiere at Silverbird Cinemas (Accra Mall and West Hills mall) and subsequent showings at venues near them.
