Popular Ghanaian Entertainers – Kontihene, Ded Buddy, Mikkie Osei Aka Master Richard, Borax, Nana Quame & Others ‘Suffering’ For A Come Back into Limelight


If some celebrities or entertainers knew taking ‘leave of absence’ from the creative art or showbiz industry would only make them come back to their ‘first love’ and start from ‘class 1,’ they would have thought through their decisions carefully or not take such decisions at all!

What do I mean by entertainers who take leave of absence? I am referring to those who become popular in any of the arts field: movies, music, broadcasting, fashion, modeling, writing, etc. but for many reasons such as: furthering their education or pursue a course, relocate out of Africa to seek for greener pastures, shun media presence for personal reasons, amongst other reasons.

The ever finest Ded Buddy is back to music after many years of leaving the industry but the center is not holding for him. He came back to say he is rebranding so he wants to be known and called Cwesi but Ghanaians also say its Kwasi or Kwesi they know and can identify with and not Cwesi – hence he is an alien to them. Seeing that Cwesi is not working, he has gone back for his Ded Buddy but still, no one cares about him and his back and forth name changing!

The once popular and sought after Kontihene of ‘Aketesiwa’ fame, is also back to his first love after a decade of leaving the industry – unfortunately, no one seems to care whether he was once popular or not. His latest track has even been dumped somewhere to make way for new ones to get airplay.

Borax, who shot to fame with his collaboration with revered musician, Daddy Lumba, also thought he would have it easy after leaving the game for many years – but his comeback has been met with a huge disappointment.

Daddy Lumba [DL] For ‘Legends & Legacy Ball’ 2011!

Celebrating Daddy Lumba

In the western world, legends are honoured, appreciated and celebrated all the time. They are awarded in their various fields of endeavour when they are alive and active. Even when they finally give up the ghost, they still get acknowledgements and recognition.

Celebrating legends posthumously has become the order of the day in our part of the world. Legends die many years before they are celebrated or anything done in their names.

Imajin Advertising, an event promotion and management outfit based inAccrabelieves it is prudent if legends are honoured and appreciated while they are alive and can relish in the accolades, praise and other benefits that come from being recognized as a legend.

The company feels it is wrong to wait till a legend dies before praises and accolades are showered on them, when the same can be done whiles they are alive. Owing to the above, an event ‘Legends & Legacy Ball’, to honour living legends has been instituted.

The ‘Legends & Legacy Ball’ is an annual event to honour music legends. As time goes on, the company hopes to extend the event to Kumasi to cater for the Northern sector of the country.

The maiden edition of the ‘LAL Ball’ focuses on legendary high life musician born and christened Charles Kojo Fosu but known by many as Daddy Lumba and recently responds to ‘DL’.
