Versatile Ewe rapper, Ayigbe Edem has exclusively revealed Friday that his much anticipated second album, Mass Production, will be released October 29.
The rapper who has kept fans in suspense for some time now as to when they should expect the album said all is set for the release of the album at the Accra Mall car park.
Just to give fans a sneak peek into what to expect in the album which he says has “very versatile songs,” Ayigbe Edem known in real life as Edem Agbeviadey said he will be performing all the songs on the album with a live band on October 26 at Rockstone’s Office.
The live band, a never seen aspect of the Volta rapper, he said is, “for fans to see that part of my act,” emphasising the fact that he is an all round musician capable of anything.
An interesting twist to the Mass Production launch which starts at 12 noon and will run into the night will be a record setting music video shoot live at the venue. The music video shoot, according to Edem, will feature all his fans who will turn up for the album launch hoping to record the highest number of people in a music video in Ghana.
Unlike his first album, Volta Regime released in 2009, which was solely recorded by sound engineer, Hammer of the Last Two fame, Mass Production, he said, holds a mixture of unique beats produced by various engineers adding, “I have more to say and more to show people.”
The 10-track Mass Production, which also comes with a change of name from Ayigbe Edem to Edem, is filled with the signature rap style of Edem who never seizes to go to all lengths to treat his fans to good and authentic music.
On the album are already well-received tunes such as Too Much and Legacy which are currently the toast of events and on radio across the length and breadth of the country, and a host of other well refined songs.
Artistes, Joey B, Tinny, Bertha, Trigmatic and Germini are among artistes who have also signed their signatures in songs on the album.
Ayigbe Edem also revealed to Myjoyonline.com that he will be releasing a reggae tune, Ghetto Arise Friday, October 30, and it will receive its first time airplay on Blakk Rasta’s show Taxi Driver on Hitz 103.7 FM which airs at 10am the same day.
Gheto Arise, he explained, is to show his versatility and depth of his creativity and most importantly to show massive respect to the Rastafarian community in Ghana.
