Philip NeeWhang is set to release yet another sensational new song titled “Orente”. The single which transforms Dany Starking’s original – Orente released in 2022 has been made over again with a fresh new breath and vocal from the sensational musical artist – Philip NeeWhang. Orente is a song that is sure to burst your brains with its smooth and melodic romantic afrobeat vibes much desired in today’s music market.

When asked what influenced Philip NeeWhang to do a cover of the song and re-release it under his vocals, he stated “The first time I listened to the song, it transported me to a different realm, I felt good, I loved the song, I did not even think I would be doing a cover on it but then I kept singing it over and over and over and then I realized, – I need to pick on this challenge and do my very first cover song and which better song than this new track which has just struck me in the heart”. The original track is one released by Dany Starking, a Nigerian musical artiste presently based in Ghana.

The song which was largely sung in English heavily uses the ‘broken’ Nigerian pronunciation style of speech and uses some native Yoruba words within its lyrical flow shockingly, Philip NeeWhang stays true to the song’s lyrics and style, often diverting to his vocal pitch as slight differences can be observed in the version released by Dany Starking and the one by Philip NeeWhang – You need to hear how the Ghanaian Musical Artist loses himself to the lyrics singing it so beautifully and true to its core, it baffles the brain.

The original as covered by Philip NeeWhang shockingly is produced, mixed, and mastered by the same sound engineer – King Kueyx under CockaStudiox who worked on Dany Starking’s original giving immerse room for improvement on the cover by Philip. Philip NeeWhang who has been hailed as the next big hit in Ghana you need to watch out for and aiming for international status has already earned 19 original songs released to his credit inclusive of Two (2) EPs which contain four (4) tracks each. Philip NeeWhang is a NAFTI alumnus with BFA Degree in Film Directing.

Abladzo Kwame changes name to “Kwame Ye”, drops promo photos to spark new journey

Published

Kwame Ye 4

Abladzo Kwame was a loud name for fans of Rap until the Rapper decided to go into hiatus and rebrand. He returns with a new name, Kwame Ye, and also shares new promotional photos to kick off his new found journey.

 

Follow him on his Social Media pages below:

Facebook – Kwame Ye (@KwameYeMusic)

Instagram, X – @KwameYeMusic

 

Stemming from a culture of hardcore hiphop and street rap, Kwame Ye, as he loves to be called in the showbiz circles is unapologetic about his style and presentation of rap culture.

 

Born as Klu Frank, he hails from the Volta Region of Ghana; but primarily grew up in Adenta, a suburb of Greater-Accra where he got inspired to start music as a hobby from childhood. With an unflinchingly real-life perspective, he would be found delivering rap with a gruff rasp influenced by  UK ‘Grime’ and ‘rusty’ beat compositions to fit his style of lyrics.

 

Kwame Ye is a co- founder of a music clique called Kings Capital Music Group (KCMG).

 

“I fell in love with art as the days crept, adding more years to my infant self; and while I grew up, my style and passion got influenced more by my peers and lovers of my music; this pushed me more to work more music, write more music, record more music and perform them as well across different stage. Music became a powerful tool for me to express myself effortlessly”, Kwame Ye intimated. He was formerly known as Abladzo Kwame, and would later pick Kwame ye as his newly found space after a new dawn of transformation and revitalisation.

 

“HipLife and Highlife were my foundation and first influences; both served as therapeutic sounds for me and led me into producing and writing my own music, and exploring other styles (genres)”, he added.

 

“I would say my style of music is a Fusion of Rap and Afro-Soul; and to keep my origins I use a lot of my native dialect, Ewe, for almost every song I churn out” –Kwame Ye.

 

Kwame Ye recorded his first song with Skillions (a Ghana-based music clique cum label) at their recording studio titled “Bossu”, featured on by Boynash, a London-based Ghanaian Rapper.

Kwame ye has scored some feats working with notable Ghanaian artistes like Edem, Gemini Orleans, Nektunez, just to name a few. He also doubles a Fashion Designer who pieces together all kinds of fabrics, creatively, as another form of gifted art.

His global influences? Kanye West, Akon, Lil Wayne, Da Hammer, Nektunez fall on his list of favourites he gets inspired by with their works.

Gary Hughton 754x424 1

Lionel Messi picked up the Best Men’s Player award for the third time since this format of the awards began in 2016, after doing so in 2019 and 2022.

A mix of votes from national team managers and captains, journalists and fans on Fifa’s website – with each counting for 25% – were used to decide the winners.

For Ghana, this is how Black Stars coach Chris Hughton and Gary Al-Smith (representing the media) voted for the best player category.

Hughton voted Messi as his first choice, Mbappe in second while Haaland was given the third spot.

Al-Smith, however, opted for Haaland as the first option with City’s Rodri and Victor Osimhen following accordingly.

Messi and Haaland finished on the same points, with the former getting the award as he had more first-place nominations from national team captains.

The Argentina captain was named men’s player of the year at the 2023 Fifa Best Awards in London on Monday, January 15.

The Inter Miami forward beat competition from Manchester City striker Erling Haaland with Paris St-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe coming third.

He scored nine goals for PSG as they won the French Ligue 1 title and 10 goals in seven games as Inter Miami won the inaugural Leagues Cup in the United States.
