The Volta Region has had a very good spotlight on their music scene this year after the emergence of Chief One who has put up sterling plaudits and breaking into some new grounds; coupled with mainstream nationals and international award recognitions. This however has brought some good attention on his contemporaries from Volta Region.
Notable among these new faces taking advantage of the times to launch and relaunch their music careers is Sakram, a Hohoe based artiste who is poised to become the next big face of the scene from northern Volta enclaves, and beyond.
Sakram breaks out with his new single titled “Agbezuge”, an Afropop jam he shares with his audiences. The song “Agbezuge” is coined from an Ewe folktale about a distressed peasant who has combed the lengths and breadths of the earth seeking greener pastures; yet each time he attempts to get better, struggles befall him.
The “Agbezuge” story modified by Sakram in an urbanized way to relate with current audience is one that details the daily struggles of a hustler in the countryside trying to make ends meet. It also relates to the countless struggles a musician has to go through before getting to the top and also being recognized mainstream. The song is out on Digital Stores for streaming, distributed via Ditto Music.
