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.
