Gowee Mozee returns

Old school musicians seem ready to take  over from the new generation act as Gowee Mozee, who’s last produced worked was released in 1995, returns with a bomb. His last recorded effort titled Solve My Problem was produced under Ivory Music in 1995.

The hip hop artiste is back with an eight track-album produced by Bisk, a Ghaanian producer whom he said is a music teacher at the American Music School, Victoria Island.

The album titled Musical Empire was recorded at Gary studio and has tracks like Survival Journey, Secret Love, Corruption amongst others. Some of the tracks in the album are already enjoying massive air play on radio stations across the country.

The Anambra (Awka) State born artiste said he was named Gowee Mozee by his father because he was born in a French speaking community.

His music career started when he began singing in various night clubs and that dates back to  the 80s. This, according to him, took him to Warri where he formed a band called ‘The Saints’ comprising both Nigerians and Ghanaians.

Unfortunately, the band collapsed because most of his Ghanaian members left the country at the time when Ghanaians were asked to leave (Ghana must go) the country.

Though, he has been off the scene, he has remained fulfilled singing in clubs.

Music videos and the act of its production have evolvedrapidly from just serving to promote the artiste and his songs and metamorphosed into a full blown industry. Music videos depict a people’s culture and way of life. They can now be arguably referred to as a phenomenon, with an out of the ordinary following which transcends age, religion, class and creed.

The 2009 edition of the Nigeria Music Video Awards may have come and  gone but  it does not seem like resonating will fade any time soon, as Callivision Network, organisers of the event  and MNET have concluded plans to  broadcast  a complete package of the  show which is still being talked of as one of the most successful awards in that year.

The objective of the NMVA which was instituted on 2nd December 2007 has remained to stage a world class event with the capability of establishing benchmark that will stamp out mediocrity, enthrone excellence and inspire practitioners to take the Music Video production business more seriously. This is against the background that Music Videos markets, exposes and celebrates, a people’s cultural-heritage, way of life, and so much more.

In the coming days, viewers all over Africa can expect to behold the NMVA 2009 in full colours with rare behind the stage footages and green carpet shots. NMVA guns to become the most credible, most attractive and most respected out of Africa .

Plans are at advanced stage to put out a 24 hour- dedicated channel in furtherance of the music video revolution in Nigeria . Already, plans are in top gear to ensure another very successful outing at the 2010 edition of the NMVA which promises to be another show stopper.
