Following the success of ‘kolgo’ players like Atongo Zimba and King Ayisoba, another, ‘kolgo’ player, Gad Nmabia Agure, has arrived on the scene with his hit single titled ‘Mi Ye Te Ni’, which is a fusion of traditional ‘kolgo’ rhythms and Afrobeats.
The song, which is yet to hit the Ghanaian market, features an international Austrian rapper Kravali.
According to Gad Nmabia Agure, known in the showbiz scene as Big Gad, he has been working on his art since his youthful days.
He added that he began performing on stage, particularly in Bolgatanga and its environs, ten years ago. He has been rapping and playing his ‘kolgo’ professionally at events.
Big Gad revealed that he draws his inspiration from ‘kolgo’ expert King Ayisoba, dancehall king Samini, Guru, Sarkodie, Nikki Minaj, among others.
“I am here to stay and I will showcase the great rhythms of the north laced with some contemporary grooves to entertain my fans and music lovers,” he said.
Big Gad was discovered by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Nantanga Entertainment, Douglas Abalene.
Mr. Abalene stated that his outfit is dedicated to discovering and marketing talents from the Upper East Region, an area he believes has more than its fair share of talents.
He cited the global exploits of King Ayisoba and Atongo Zimba as examples of what the region has to offer and added that the public should watch out for more from Big Gad and other Nantanga Entertainment artistes.
