Nenebi, fast-growing Ghanaian poet/songwriter is set to launch his official website: www.nenebi.com on 21 September. Two poems “#HereNow” and “Six Heads” from his upcoming debut, “Scar on My Face” will be up for downloads when the site opens.
#HereNow is recorded, mixed and mastered by Magnom (with its Afro-rock beat produced by Camaflaj) features songstress Jackie Morris and celebrates finding love after several struggles in the past. While the politically-charged and controversial poem, “Six Heads”, features dancehall starlet, Myron AK and its beat infected heavily with flutes, Afropop and reggae sounds.
Nenebi first performed a soulful version of #HereNow on February 14th, 2013 at the African Regency Hotel during Richie Mensah’s This Is Love Concert to loud applause. He has since January been building momentum for his album by releasing a couple of poems like “Every Woman”, which featured Whitney Houston’s version of “I’m Every Woman” and Frank Ocean’s “White” instrumental and Ghana’s first Azonto poem, “ECG Love”. He also released a Kobi Rana-directed video, Just Tell Me, as a promo single before releasing the insecure-girls-cheerer, No Explanation, as the first single from his album.
Hip hop version of Nenebi’s “No Explanation” titled, “We High”, was released on June 18th, 2013 as the second single from the album. It featured Myron AK and Ayigbe Edem.
Nenebi’s debut album, Scar On My Face, has been rescheduled for the first quarter of 2014.
