It’s undeniably that Chemphe has been one of the best songwriters to come from Africa. Ever since he was awarded the best lyricist at the 2008 Ghana Music Awards 2013 and appearing on the world chart, Chemphe has created global songs such as “Why U Dey Treat Am Bad”, “One People”, “Global Citizens” and many songs that has positively influenced people across Africa and the world.
“Its time”, the new YMCA world theme song was composed and written by Chemphe in partnership with Romulo Dantas, Brazilian and Executive Secretary of the World YMCA.
The aim of the song was to express the main aim of the YMCA worldwide and its commitment to empower young people. The YMCA movement reaches 58 million people in 119 countries and serves thousands of communities in their most relevant needs.
“It’s Time”, the theme song was officially launched during the YMCA Prague Festival in August to an audience of 5,000 young participants from over 50 countries. YMCA members from all over are getting more and more excited as the song spreads by the work of hundreds of volunteers in celebrations and youth gatherings.
The World YMCA is preparing a set of flash mobs in several cities of the world for June 2014 during it’s 170 years anniversary.
It is also very fascinating that the collaboration between Chemphe and Romulo is being considered as an unofficial world cup theme song by participants. He is currently preparing to present his “purple Kiss’ album to the world and confirmed recently it will be launched in Ghana instead of Norway where the previous one was launch.
With three nominations at this years 4syte music video awards he continues to be one of the consistent artist in 2012/2013.
