Radio show host Brown Berry wowed by the exploits of rising Ghanaian artiste Chief One, says the chiefs and traditional leaders in Volta Region need to consider making Chief One a tourism ambassador to promote the Volta Region.
Chief One launched onto the scene with mainstream recognition in the last quarter of 2021. His style and sound are a fine infusion of urban creativity laced with traditional ensembles from his home ground (Volta Region), and projection of his native language, Ewe, majorly forming his lyrical composition.
With a debut EP, Here I Come, surpassing 6 million streams across various digital platforms, Chief One has outlived himself as an indie artiste who rose to fame in Ghana in January 2022 and has been consistent across all year with at least six national and international nominations, key among them is Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (2022) and 3Music Awards (2022) in which he won Next Rated Act, among 16 nationwide contenders.
He is best known for hit singles Young Boy, Mekamo, Novayi, Du Agbe, Turn By Turn, and Wotelewoea.
Chief One’s debut EP, Here I Come, has surpassed 6 million streams on the audio streaming service. His song, Wotelewoea, crept over 27 million impressions on Tiktok.
Under Lion Group management and the Lawada Republiq team, Chief One has already begun 2023 with the single, One Day, produced by Hairlergbe. He is still in Accra on a 2-week media tour to promote his One Day song and Wotelewoea video.
