MEET THE WRITER AND COMPOSER OF THE ALL NEW VGMA THEME SONG!

Published

on

About a week ago, Charterhouse Productions Ghana, organizers of the annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Scheme released an all new theme song for the special 20th anniversary of the scheme and beyond.

Produced by Kaywa with top names like Amandzeba, Adina, Joe Mettle, Teephlow, Kidi and Kuami Eugene all on the track, we went behind the scenes to dig a little further into how the entire composition was done. “When I heard about the theme song contest, I had a chat with one of the young talents in my studio, he penned down a few words and we invited some musician friends who were interested and available to jump on it. Dave is a gem”- Kaywa

So who is this Dave who hasn’t been mentioned on this track at all?

Dave DA MusicBox, a.k.a. Eliel David Ofori-Atta, is a music producer, songwriter, recording artiste, music director and pastor.

Born on January 26 to missionaries Apostle Florence and Rev. George, Dave grew up in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. He is the eldest of three siblings: a brother and a sister.

Dave started playing music in church at a very young age. And at age ten, he was already playing the drums. By his thirteenth birthday he had become the Head of the music and sound department in his church.

Tagging along with his uncles to gigs, concerts and studio sessions in his early teens, Dave quickly graduated from an amateur music environment to professional music production. Still in his teens, his love for all things percussion saw him collaborate on beats arrangements for rappers.

Dave was made music director and president of his university’s mass choir during his third and final year of studies. And right after moved into full time music production as director, producer and songwriter. He has since been working with both local and international artistes.

Dave is founder of DaveDaMusicBox, Co-Producer at GrooveHouse, He also performs with his friends and regular crew: the musicbox

“My music is more of a calling than a passion” he says. “It’s what drives me”. To him, the stage is a vehicle of positivity.

Dave has albums to his name. OUT OF THE BOX and the OUT OF THE BOX EXPERIENCE. Both feature a cocktail of African and urban contemporary rhythms and express a unique and honest approach to gospel music à la DaveDaMusicBox.

It may be pertinent to note that though acts like Teephlow, Kidi, Kuami Eugene and Amandzeba wrote their own lyrics, Dave’s structure was what set the entire tone for this master piece of a song to be created.

Others who worked on the track are listed below:

Kaywa (producer,) mixing and mastering engineer

Emmanuel Bludo (drummer)

Emmanuel Cobold (additional keyboards)

Emmanuel Selorm Dornyoh (Guitars)

Dominic Quarchie (Guitars)

Bass Player (Eliel David Ofori-Atta)

Background Vocals (Eliel David Ofori-Atta and Getrude Cobold)

The song, titled “OUR MUSIC LIVES” is available for free download online.

TOME TEAMS UP WITH LEGENDURY BEATZ ON AMAPIANO TRACK ‘WAIT’

Published

on

Nigerian Canadian Singer & Songwriter Tomi Akanbi popularly & professionally known as Tome teamed up with hit record producing duo Legendury Beatz for her latest single which is an Amapiano hit titled ‘WAIT’.

The Single is the first song off her 12-track album: ‘No Long Talk’, which is set to be released early next year.

It’s been just over a year since Tome released her JUNO Award-winning Reggae single; “I Pray” which featured Jamaican superstar Sean Kingston, and she looks set to close this year out in style with this new Amapiano hit. The talented songstress crosses over successfully to the Amapiano sound & dominates the beat with her self assuredness, swagger & cheeky bravado on the delivery. Tome declares notably on The second bridge of the song that “even Aliko Dangote does not have my kind of money & even Otedola doesn’t have my kind of cash”, giving us a glimpse into Tome’s extremely lofty aspirations. 

The beat is distinguished by its high-pitched piano melodies, Kwaito basslines, and low tempo South African house rhythms blended with percussions which Tome glides on crisply with her vocals.

With Wait, Tome has delivered a masterpiece that the world can rock to not just during the end of the year festivities, but also into next year.

According to her, “She states that I want to dominate global sounds, Amapiano is a global sound; not just for now, but for the future. So I had to give it my best shot for the culture and to create something timeless with a life of its own that people in Africa and the World could vibe to”
