Beleaguered Ghanaian highlife artiste, Daasebre Dwamena, real name, Abubakar Siddiq has expressed interest in collaborating on a new highlife tune with comeback kid, Ofori Amponsah.
Dwamena who has released a new single, ‘Yenfii Ta’ says he is ready to bounce back onto the music scene.
The talented singer, more commonly known for his 2004 hit song “KOKOOKO”, gave some of his fans and the Ghanaian public a shock when news came in that he had been arrested at the Heathrow airport in London for possession of drugs (cocaine).
He served an eleven month jail term and came out with a diploma in IT and Mathematics.
Speaking in an interview with Anita Erskine on the Starr Drive Thursday, Ahuofe Dwamena said his prison experience has made him realise the supremacy of God’s power hence his decision to serve him better.
He, however, agrees he has his work cut out for him coming back onto the music scene and acknowledged the need to strategize.
He believes a collaboration with his old friend, Ofori Amponsah would bring both of them some good fate.
“Ofori is good at highlife and writing good songs so I think merging with him would be great. We wanted to do a collaboration before he became a pastor and my cocaine case also happened,” Dasebre revealed.
According to him, the multiple award-winning highlife artiste is one of the few who sympathized with him when he got involved in the “cocaine scandal”.
“He even wept for me.”
Amponsah who quit music to become a full-time Pastor at the Holy Grounds Sanctuary has recently staged a comeback into the music industry.
He recently announced his return with a Highlife song ‘Alewa’ featuring rapper Sarkodie.
