Ronald Kwaku Dei Appiah is the singer who was able to reach Hollywood with his songs and show the way to a hundred young African amateur singers. With his artist name Bisa Kdei, he told MzGee of Showbiz 927 on 3FM: “It’s not a victory for me alone, but it’s actually a great victory for High-life, Ghana and Africa as well”. Hailing from Larteh in Ghana, we will find out how this singer got to a level that can be considered the pinnacle for an African singer’s career.
WHO IS HE, WHY IS HE SO FAMOUS?
From his stage name Bisa which means “serious boy in action”, the singer has won the hearts of the public and thus has several titles under his belt due to his work: proud Christian, singer, songwriter and producer. Nominated several times as the best High-life singer, Bisa Kdei is an icon in his country Ghana. He was discovered by the director Afra Marley at the age of 15. After years of hard work and despite the loss of his mother on August 19, 2015, which occurred on the day of the release of his music video “MENSA”, Bisa Kdei did not stop constantly redoubling his efforts to provide the best and make his passion for music a real success story. Indeed, in addition to being a songwriter, he is also a movie trailer designer. This is what makes Bisa an artist with many strings to his bow. Known for his seriousness and rigor in his work, this young singer-songwriter was contacted by several film production companies. He was able to work on the official trailer of “AZONTO GOST” which will propel him and allow him to sign big contracts with other production companies.
HIS DEPARTURE FOR HOLLYWOOD AND THE ROAD TO A GREAT DESTINY
It was a big surprise when Bisa announced that he would be working on the trailer for a Hollywood production. All of Ghana was proud of this news.
The film in question was written by David E. Talbert and is called “Jingle Jangle”, a Christmas movie to be released on November 8, 2020. This feature film features American stars like Forest Wintaker, Lisa Davina, Philip Keegan Micheal, Phylicia Rashas, Huge Bonneville. However, the best is yet to come, because the song chosen by the director, is that of Bisa himself. The title of this song is “Asew me Nie” which had collected 10 million views on YouTube in 2021. It will be retouched to be called “Grandpa Me Nie”. He will also work with USHER and John Legend, who are well-known figures in American music.
David E. Talbert has stated that he wants quality work. That’s why he contacted Bisa who is known for his work well done. This marks the beginning of the collaboration with the American showbiz for our singer.
THE FORERUNNER FOR THE NEW GENERATION
In anticipation of another future collaboration with the USA, the “Ecofest” 2021 event organized by the Multimedia Entertainment Group invited Bisa Kdei to represent Ghana, which is not insignificant when you know the impact that this event represents for amateur singers. Over thirty thousand music lovers from all African sub-regions will be in attendance and will be able to benefit from the experience of the leaders who will be singing with the Ghanaian representative. Bisa Kdei has come a long way in music. He has been able to touch hearts and lives with his inspiring music that will continue to inspire future generations.
