Upcoming Ghanaian musician, who goes by the name Akesesem, has asserted that in Ashiaman anyone can sing, even the market woman.
Talking of what inspired him to do music, he revealed that music runs in his family. According to him, his mother is a good singer at church and both his kid brother and elder brother are very good drummers but with him, his talent is from Ashiaman.
This, he shared in an interview with Foster Romanus on the Late Nite Celebrity Show which airs on eTV Ghana.
He said, “It runs in the family but for me, I’ll say it’s because I grew up in Ashaiman and in Ashaiman, even a market woman can sing because Ashaiman is music”.
Akesesem told Foster that at a point in his life, he realized that whenever he listens to anyone song from Sarkodie or any other artists and tries to sing it, he ends up singing something totally different and that becomes his composition.
From that, he convinced himself that he can do music, thus began to practice and learn better, and that is how his career as a musician began.
