Hecta is the ‘Black Magic’ of Ghanaian Music
Since the Hiplife revolution started in Ghana, it has given the “Hiplifers” a unique identity which we can always be proud of. The whole Hiplife idea was original because we came up with our own taste of rhytms, and lyrics were always in the Ghanaian local languages.
It started with Twi rap initiated or renewed by Reggie Rockstone, then the GA rap made popular and appealing by Tinny, Ewe Rap transformed by Edem, and other local languages later joined the Hiplife Train.
Names like Hecta, Torgbe, Dimormi, Chief One GH, Agbesi and few others, are the strongest force holding the Volta version of Hiplife up. The above mentioned names are working tirelessly to keep the Ewe rap movement alive and active.
I want to talk about an outstanding rapper who goes by the name HECTA; whom I personally call the ‘Black Magic‘ of Ghanaian Music. Apart from being an original Hiplife artist, he applies all other things that represents who he is and where he comes from.
His performance at the just ended “VGMA Nominees Jam” in HO, became one of the most trending topics even though he performed for only few minutes… What made him an outstanding performer at the nominees jam, is his costume and stage craft, which aligned with the song he was performing. Hecta unleashed the black magic behind the song on the stage that day; and that got every one feeling that charisma.
His performance was well arranged and electrifying! Hecta has been in the music scene for a pretty long time, and has grown to become a professional artist by all standards. Loud Sound Ghana has been hinted the official music video for the song “Voodoo” will be out soon! Check out his performance at the VGMA Nominees Jam below and anticipate for the official video.
