Tamale is fast becoming the haven of entertainment with a dash of culture in the savanna regions of Ghana.
But for a Ghanaian artiste especially those in the northern part of Ghana to sit down, analyze the preference of the people in the southern part of the country, predict the content that would make an instant hit, make classic music, release and promote it to the limit, is one of the difficult challenges facing artistes in the northern region. But trust me, Maccsio is doing marvelously well in the north and Ghana as a whole.
Who is Maccasio? Sheriff Abdul Majeed “Maccasio” is a Hiplife musician who is making it big in Tamale. He made mainstream prominence last year when he managed to recruit Shatta Wale for his hit song titled “Too Big”. He climaxed a successful year with “Too Big Concert” which saw thousands at the Tamale Sports Stadium on January 1. He kick started this year with a diss song titled “Fired”.
This year, the northern star stands out to be the best new artiste for 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards due to his efforts under the year in review. The criteria for the new artiste of the Year states;
“The New Artiste of the Year is the Artiste(s) adjudged by the Academy, Board and the General Public as the most promising and talented emerging artiste (s). The award goes to a relatively new artiste(s) who released a SINGLE/ALBUM that FIRST shot the artiste(s) into the limelight during the year under review.
Maccasio has built a bigger and better fan base in 2017 and was warmly received and cheered on all the musical platforms he mounted especially with his energetic stagecraft.
Maccasio’s presence and relevance was really felt in all aspects of our music industry under the year of review.When it comes to provision of hit and relevant songs,Maccasio seems to have the secret of making hits,good and relevant songs.Talking of shows he played,I will like to give you a gist of the shows because I will need extra sheets if I try to mention all. One of Maccasio’s biggest show was the “Northern Xplosion concert” held in the february this year and his recent album launch j”Ninsala Album launch” held on the 19th of august 2017 which recorded over 12,000 patrons.
Yes, we understand the likes of kurl Songz, Kidi, Kuami Eugene and many others are doing marvelously well but comparing them to Maccasio, he will surely come out as the top most artist of the year. He actually has Ghana on his shoulders.
A lot of entertainment pundits have tipped Kurl Songs but Personally,I enjoy those tunes and I know most Ghanaians also do,but sincerely two songs isn’t enough to Kurl Songs the glory.Kurl Songs did a great job in the year of review and it is no wonder his name is circulating around as a potential winner of the accolade but in my view,his works are not enough to win him the crown,thus, Maccsio deserves the new artiste of the year.
With the pictures attached to this informations, I believe it will enable you agree with my stands that,the northern star deserves this years best new artite of the year crown.
