Ghana’s sensational R&B artiste Eric Turkson aka Ded Buddy, who won the hearts of many music fans in Ghana and beyond with his stagecraft and singing skills, is out with another bouncing hit single titled ‘Ohemaa’. The single which is yet to receive massive air play on all the local radio stations throughout the country has good lyrics and danceable sound quality.
‘Ohemaa’ introduces music lovers to a never-seen side of Ded Buddy as a performer and recording artiste. The song comes with a mottled tempo with a beautiful rhythm and a great bass tune and drum beats to match. It comes with an all new feeling that instantly grows on the listener.
A section of music sound engineers and fans who have listened to the song will confirm that Ded Buddy has added a new flavour to the music industry.
Ded Buddy is not new in the R&B music and is one of the Ghanaian musicians who has carved a niche for himself in the world of music.
Hard work and a determination to succeed have seen him as a force to reckon with in R&B music.
As one of the giants who pride themselves in dynamism, Ded Buddy is comfortable with change. His music has assumed a more international flavour; a hybrid of R&B music.
After years of going into ‘hibernation’, Ded Buddy is back on the Ghanaian music scene with a new identity. The ‘Yebesa‘ hit maker is now known as Qweci.
In 1990, together with Eddie Blay, Tiny Quaye and Jake, Ded Buddy formed a group called NFL. Exposure gained in NFL led him to perform for Stevie Wonder during Panafest 1994.
He also performed at many other events. Being classified as the best Akan R&B singer, Ded Buddy, in the 1990’s translated Boyz II Men’s ‘I’ll make love to You’ into Akan and this caught the attention of many fans.
His music prowess led to an invitation by former President Rawlings to perform at the first ever peace concert organized in Accra. He was also invited to sing at the Miss Ghana event.
Encouraged by friends and family, Ded Buddy released his first hit album some years back. His name became a household name and fans related easily to his music.
When asked what pushed him to make good music, ‘My love for music encourages me to always make good music,’ was his response.
Qweci left Ghana in the late 90s shortly after the release of his hit songs ‘Abofra Wisua’ and ‘Yebesa’, which got the whole country singing and dancing.
