Ghanaian recording artiste, Denning Edem Hotor, has said he has some unique features.
According to him, he does what most Ghanaian musicians cannot do.
He indicated that his versatility makes him switch between genres.
“I’m not trying to move, I’m doing what I’m capable of. Every other artiste who is a rapper and could sing would do like Edem but they can’t that’s why they don’t do it, and I can that’s why I do it,” Edem said in an interview on Radio Central with Amansan Krakye.
He added: “So it’s not about moving it’s the fact that I can do it and I’m capable and I’m that talented. No dancehall artiste can rap but I did ‘Go Harder‘, no rapper can sing but I did ‘Ghetto Arise‘ so it’s a fact that the talent is on that level and I’m exhibiting it.”
Edem rose to fame in 2006 with his first hit single “WOTOME WOSHI” and he got signed to The Last Two Entertainment Group that same year.
His Debut Album The Volta regime was released in January 2009. This album is a result of two years of recordings in Accra. All the lyrics were written by Edem. The compositions were produced by Hammer of The Last Two who doubled as the executive producer.
Edem won the Best International Act-Africa at 2015 Black Canadian Awards. The ‘Koene’ hit singer beat Mafikizolo (South Africa), Yemi Alade (Nigeria), Davido (Nigeria), Eddy Kenzo (Uganda), Oritse Femi (Nigeria), and Teeyah (Ivory Coast) to win the award. The rapper thanked God and Ghanaians for their support which he said helped him emerge victorious at the event.
He won 2015 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Album of the Year Books and Rhymes, Afro-pop song of the year with “Koene” and Video of the Year with “The One” video featuring SwayUk.
Edem featured six up-and-coming musicians from the Volta Region on a hiplife song titled ‘Godo’ some few days ago.
