Ghanaian writer, musician and composer Gladstorm Kwabena Akwaboah, famously known as Akwaboah, is reported to have written a song for American popular musician, Alicia Keys.
Per the information at hand, Akwaboah charges between GHc70,000 to GHc100,000 for every song he writes. Well, in an interview with Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, he was asked if he had sold any of his songs to Alicia Keys who’s known for the ‘Girl On Fire’ popular song.
Although the SarkCess Music signed act, Akwaboah felt reluctant to answer until one Nana Poku Ashis who doubles as entertainment critic on Hitz FM entertainment show entered the studio to confirm that Akwaboah had indeed written a song for Alicia Keys.
“I say it as it is and I would not lie. He has written a song for Alicia Keys. I will say the truth…” he claimed.
When pushed to confirm the rumour, Akwaboah stated that he had set a ‘trap’, and Ghana would soon know the moment it catches a prey.
This is not surprising because Akwaboah is undoubtedly a gem in Ghana music although he’s kind of underrated. For he knows how to play all the music instruments you can ever imagined. He’s simply the definition of a complete musician all other things being equal.
On records, he wrote about 98% of Sarkodie’s fourth studio album dubbed, ‘Mary‘. Aside, he’s the brain behind some of Becca as well as Efya’s hit songs. Akwaboah is currently promoting his debut album under SarkCess Music christened ‘Matters of The Heart’.
