I Recorded ''Kyenkyen Ni Edi Mi Ewu'' To Honour My Hero - Rocky Dawuni

Ghanaian reggae music icon, Rocky Dawuni has opened up on the reason why he recorded Kyenkyen Bi Edi Mi Ewu as part of songs on his latest album, Beats Of Zion and has said he did it to honour a legend and his hero, the late Alhaji K. Frimpong.

The award winning reggae musician said this in an interview with Accra based Class Fm on Monday.

Some few days ago, son of the late Alhaji K.Frimpong, Cabum posted on twitter expressing his displeasure with the reggae icon for recording the song without acknowledging any member from the circle of the late music legend. He described Rocky Dawuni’s work as wrong and said the Ghanaian music industry was a shithole.

As monitored by ghlinks.com.gh, the Grammy Award nominee said he wanted to honour some heroes of music in Ghana and had the opportunity to record in arguably the best studios in the world, Village Studios.

He added that he had the option of choosing from a tall list of heroes but felt the work of the late Alhaji K. Frimpong was the best and needed a refresh so he did that to pay his respect. “Literally, I could record any song I wanted  but one of the songs I chose was one from one of my heroes, Alhaji K. Frimpong. So for me, I felt this song needed a recreation, a refresh from the best studios to honour such an icon of African music and also to pay respect.”

Rocky Dawuni’s Kyenkyen Bi Edi Mi Ewu features award winning Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie. He said everything about the new version was great and sells Ghana in a positive way to the rest of the world. “Everything about this song is cool and good and bringing praise to our country so praise God for that.”
