Kumasi is renowned for producing an overwhelming number of artistes from the gospel
genre to the highlife genre. Daughters of Glorious Jesus, Esther Smith, Ernest Opoku Jnr,
Daddy Lumba, Tommy Wiredu, and Nana Tuffour of blessed memory are just a few on the
Tommy Wiredu, in the 1990s and in the early parts of the year 2000 dazzled Ghanaians with
his unique highlife music and earned the praise of Ghanaians home and abroad. Some of his
tracks include Me Do Mu Edu, Ebia Ne Me, Checki W’abrabo, and a host of others.
It is not surprising, then, that his blood brother Mr Music Mensah whom he grew up with in
the same house in Kumasi is also gaining popularity in Ghana and abroad with tracks like
Blessing, Great God, You Are God, Thirty Billion, and Everybody. It is the story of ‘like
brother, like brother’. ‘That is like Tommy Wiredu, like Mr Music Mensah’.
In a phone interview conducted with Mr Muisc Mensah from his base in the United States,
he revealed that what Ghanaians are experiencing with his music is merely the beginning of
great things to come.
Check out a video of his latest track entitled Blessing.
