Accra Ghana- Friday January 25, 2019. Winner of the 2018 Closeup #BreakTheBarrier Music Challenge, Lycon, is out with a music video for his groovy new tune, Where She Dey. The song was produced by award winning engineer, Kaywa. 

The Ho Technical University graduate, who beat other highly talented artistes to win Closeup’s exciting new music competition, is set to break the barrier and make it big in mainstream music.

Lycon is a singer, rapper and songwriter who delivers his music largely in Ewe, English, Pidgin and other languages. He first won the Volta regional edition before taking the ultimate crown in the grand finale held in August 2018. This music video is part of his winning package, which includes a mentoring session with respected producer Richie Mensah, of Lynx Entertainment.

Explaining the motivation behind the song, the promising artiste describes the search for that special someone with good qualities. In his own words, “there are beautiful ladies with good character whom you can marry, who do not just slay with their beauty”. A very relatable thing to many men out there. 

The Closeup music challenge, subtitled #BreakTheBarrier, is the brand’s programme to give young people that once in a lifetime opportunity to make it big in music. The reason behind this programme is simple- Closeup understands that there are many talented young people who have potential to make it big in mainstream music. However, many of them do not have the right platform to get to the next level. Closeup created a unique platform to give people a chance to use their confidence to break the barrier to the next level.

Closeup is Ghana’s leading youth brand which gives long lasting fresh breath. Only closeup gives the confidence to get close when it matters most. Just like the new Closeup coolbreeze toothpaste that comes with a new minty flavour for long lasting fresh breath, Lycon comes with a breeze of fresh vibes to hit the music industry in Ghana and beyond.

Users can follow @CloseupGhana on all social media platforms for update on Season 2 of the Closeup Music Challenge.

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.
