After clocking 25 million views on TikTok, a music video from Chief One for the hit record Wotelewoea is in the right direction. Lawada Republiq teamed up with the Lion Group to launch official visuals for Chief One’s street anthem, Wotelewoea, an Ewe parlance channelling the can-do spirit.
Kabash Images, the Togolese video director, comes to the rescue again with a splendid storyline tipped to shoot the song’s visibility to higher heights for Chief One. With everything shot on location in Togo, the video would be the last Chief One is dropping for his fans to close the year 2022. The song “Wotelewoea” was produced by Hairlergbe.
Chief One has had a very successful year in 2022 with the release of his debut EP, Here I Come, followed by two new singles, Turn By Turn and Wotelewoea.
The EP propelled him into mainstream recognition after he went viral in December 2021 and early January with key endorsements and influences from Grammy recognised musicians and music influencers, like Gramps Morgan (Morgan Heritage), Samini, Shatta Wale, Rocky Dawuni, Reggie Rockstone, Obrafour, Giovani Caleb, Benedicta Gafah, Reggy Zippy, Elorm Beenie, as well as Producers JMJ (JR Music), and Cold Eye.
Here I Come EP scored over 3 million streams across various audio streaming platforms. This is considered a feat from a newbie who broke out 12 months ago into the scene with no label backing.
He went through the year with awards and nominations locally and internationally, including 3Music Awards 2022 (Best Next Rated Act – Won), with nominations in Vodafone Ghana Music Awards 2022, Ghana Music Awards France 2022, Ghana Music Awards UK 2022, Ghana Entertainers Awards 2022, Ghana Music Awards USA 2022.
