The Steady Rise Of a Promising Star; Curr3ncy
Since Hip-Life was introduced in Ghana, a lot of young men and ladies got involved and they did their best to show their musical talents in diverse ways. Hip-Life started off in Ashanti Twi and later got to other Ghanaian local languages such as Fante, Ewe, Frafra, GA, just to mention a few… These artists basically demonstrated where they come from with their lyrics and contents; and that was more vivid in their songs because they preached what they have experienced personally.
Today I want you to take note of a young man who goes by the name Nana Yaw Celestins but also known as “Curr3ncy” in the music circles. This young man represents Takoradi located in the Western Region of Ghana, and therefore raps in the Fante dialect. He started showing off his exceptional talent way back in Takoradi but now residing in the United States of America, creating internet flood with his freestyles and singles.
Listening to this young artist for the very first time, I knew he is here to stay and his talent will be recognized very easily. There are some few things I noticed about him and those are definitely the attributes of a real artist. Many young and upcoming artists lack these qualities and I can say Curr3ncy could easily rub shoulders with the “Top” artists trending at the moment.
His lyrics are straight forward and very clear; that comes with a stylish delivery. He possesses an unbelievable sense of humour which I believe makes me and thousands of his fans in Ghana, US and the rest of the world want to listen to him all the time. He is also very creative with his story telling skills… He does paint a clear picture of any situation in his songs. All he needs is the right instrumentals… Well, he does it without instrumentals too!!
He has already impressed a lot industry players and some of our music legends like Samini, Nana Quame, KK Fosu, Sony Achiba, A Plus, and many others who I believe has been in the game for long and can easily recognize a great talent when they see one. Curr3ncy will be sharing the same stage with some of our Top artists in Atlanta on the #SaminiUnplugged happening 31st July 2015.
Curr3ncy is the next biggest star the world really need to prepare for. His freestyles always went viral on social media and his singles keep trending all over. He is currently shooting a music video for his song “Me Do Wo” featuring sensational singer; Singlet. We also heard he is planning on collaborations with KK Fosu, Nana Quame, Sony Achiba and many more legends. Listen to “Me Do Wo” below and watch out for the rising star emerging from Takoradi to the world!
