With a love for music and passion to succeed, shines one of today’s brightest and gifted male vocal soloist…QWECI.
All the way from Ghana to the U.S.A., Qweci has created his own genre of “Afro-Soul,” which has earned him the street credibility and fan base, that most artists only dream about. Spending his childhood in Ghana, exposed Qweci to a vastly diverse culture and sound, that is apparent from the first note. His musical influences include Michael Jackson, Enya, Lionel Richie, Kool and the Gang, and Stevie Wonder, in which Qweci opened up for at Panafest in 1994. Traditional Ghanaian music, Highlife, has had the most influence and impact in shaping the artist he is today.
Qweci has always had an enormous love for music. While accompanying his mother to church, Qweci discovered the confidence and courage and began performing at the age of 6. After years singing behind the microphone, he won an inter-collegiate contest by belting a strong performance of Boyz II Men’s hit single, Ill Make Love to You, in a Ghanaian translation. Soon after, Ded Buddy (Qwecis previous stage name) was Ghanas biggest singing sensation. From performing at the Miss Ghana 1998 Pageant to touring around Africa with the rap group, “Native Funk Lords,” Qweci has had the honor of performing and creating thousands of fans. These fans continued to follow him when he chose to pursue his musical career in America.
Currently, Qweci is working on his debut, cross over EP to share with the world. “This is my first cross over project. I have sold records in Ghana and throughout Africa, but this is the album made for all.” Collaborating with Hardy “Indiigo” Muanza, Buckwild, and other creative forces, has been an inspiring and exciting adventure for Qweci.
This EP will showcase Qweci’s new musical direction, introduce his current fan base to his new passion and create new fans to share his talent and experiences with. Qweci’s goal is to reach the entire world by creating that “feel good, world peace music” that everyone can relate to and sing along. His work continues.
