AFTER appearing on some major shows and collaborating with some hitmakers in the country, Ghanaian singer Mr Yuppie feels it is time Ghanaians paid attention to his craft.
He has mounted platforms such as Adom Keteke, Adonko Jams, Kuami Eugene Thank Concert, and Adom City Pub Lunch and has successfully collaborated with musicians such as Paa Kwesi of Dobble, Ayesem, Atom, and Ekow Marvel.
Mr Yuppie, who has been self-financing his music project for the past four years, said he is expecting a big breakthrough in his career this year.
“With consistency and originality, I know the future is bright. I am very determined to make it this year since I’m putting a lot into my works. For instance, I’m intensely promoting my latest single, Sika Kwan.
“Also, I have hired the services of a professional band I rehearse with to polish my live performances and stagecraft. Although I started professional music about four years ago, I have taken my time to learn from my predecessors and I need to share what I have learned over the years with Ghanaians and the rest of the world,” he said.
Sika Kwan, produced by Kasapa Beats was released a month ago. The song narrates how riches gotten through dishonest means is not sustainable.
Mr. Yuppie, real name Richard Ofosu and a native of Akim Oda goes on to say that when one genuinely works hard, the result is peace of mind which has eluded many people in recent times.
In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, Mr Yuppie born to Mr. Edward Ofosu and Madam Diana Adubea said he was motivated to do the song due to the increasing rate of the youth’s involvement in internet fraud and money rituals.
“I have so many friends flaunting wealth that was acquired by fraudulent means. I’m not too happy that this is happening among this generation so I’m addressing the menace with my latest piece. Such practices should be discouraged,” he said.
