Zylofon Media has revealed its intentions of venturing into movie productions. In line with this intention, the company has unveiled five actors they say will spearhead and help them achieve that dream. The five – James Gardiner, Bibi Bright, Toosweet Annan, Zynnell Zuh and Benedicta Gafah were unveiled at a ceremony at the Zylofon Media headquarters in Accra last Friday. All but Benedicta Gafah attended the event. Prior to unveiling the five, the company had also signed five musicians – Kumi Guitar, Becca, Stonebwoy, Joyce Blessing and Obibini – to Zylofon Music wing of the company. Samuel Atuobi Baah, Head of Communications at Zylofon Media told the press that the signing of the five actors is in line with company’s theme of pursuing an agenda of “creative arts made in Ghana.” He added that they are targeting all aspects of the creative arts industry. The ambassadors, who have signed a three-year deal with the company, are going to help Zylofon Media achieve their agenda of producing movies. Revealing that they now own the franchise to the Ghana Movie Awards, Mr Baah said, “As people who have a franchise for a particular award scheme, the best you can do is to contribute in that sector. “We cannot run a movie award when we don’t have anything doing with movies. So, it is our plan that we put out our own movies on the market.” The five, he noted, “are going to play the role as our movie stars as well as our ambassadors when it comes to Zylofon movies. “The stars, as much as they can also do their individual works; we are going to handle their management and give them roles both in Ghana and outside Ghana. They will also be producing Zylofon movies.” ]]>
Dianna Wright to shoot Ahoo video in Ghana
THE line-up of events and international artistes coming to Ghana this December keeps getting exciting and the latest to join is Jamaican singer, poetess and actress, Dianna Wright.
The US based artiste will be in Accra to shoot the video of her trending song, Ahoo and also participate in events to mark the festive season.
The song is already being played on some radio stations in Ghana and Jamaica and Dianna who is signed to 16-Bars Multimedia LLC, hopes to cement its popularity with the video which will be shot in a village setting in Ghana.
While here, she is also open to shows and collaborations with local artistes and bands.
Dianna who was part of acts for the Hands Across Africa concert held at the National Theatre in July said she selected Ghana to shoot the video for the love she has for the country.
“When I come to Ghana, it’s just like home, Ghana is a bigger Jamaica. I love how the people dance with so much energy. I will feature some young and talented dancers in my video. I love the newness, vibe and energy anytime I am there.
“For the video, I want a natural setting and it was Ghana that first came to mind, the unique and serene villages in Ghana is the kind of vibe I am looking for,” she said.
With the exception of her engineer and a couple of her team members, Dianna will use Ghanaian based creatives for her production saying, “there is no point flying in many professionals as Ghana has them in abundance. There are so many talents here who can help us execute this project perfectly”, she added.
As a way of giving back to the Ghanaian society, she adopted the drama troupe of the Manya Krobo Senior High School and supports the group regularly.
“Orente” by Philip NeeWhang, to be available exclusively on Boomplay, is a soothing, lovely song
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.
Check out Orente which is now exclusively released on Boomplay starting Nov 17, 2022 – releasing in other stores on Nov 24, 2022, and enjoy a lifetime of sweet bliss contained within this music. Next to be released is “Freedom” on Nov 25, 2022, on Boomplay exclusive a week before other stores.
