Ghanaian international sports journalist Edmund Okai Gyimah has released a single titled “Ndagukunda” under the stage name “Black Messiah”.
The hit single which was produced and recorded by Winner Beatz in Kigali was released over the weekend under Winner Beatz Records.
The track is a mixture of Twi, English as well as Kinyarwanda which is the local dialect of the people of Rwanda and it features Ray Traore and Neema.
“Ndagukunda” which means “My love” in Kinyarwanda is a free flowing rap song with quality sound and chorus. It is already making waves in the East African country just two days after being released.
Asked about how he combines his journalism job with music, Black Messiah emphasised that music has been his other side since childhood and he would have been a full time rapper if he had not been a sports journalist.
“Actually, I started rapping in Junior Secondary School and also in church, I was part of the Junior Choir so music has been part of me. In Secondary School at Kumasi High School, I rapped at entertainment shows on campus under my name Black Messiah,” he told Dailymailgh.com
“Initially I wanted to be a professional rapper but my late dad who worked at Ghana Commercial Bank will have none of that, he wanted me to focus on education and he was always on my neck since he thought with music, I won’t learn. I had to quit rap after secondary school before I went to the Ghana Institute of Journalism.”
“After many years, the thing was still in me so after completing my education abroad, I linked up with a producer and he recorded me.
“I am still a sports journalist and music is just my part time job since I love it,” the former writer for Goal said.
Edmund Okai Gyimah (Black Messiah) has worked for many reputable media houses including the biggest football website in the world Goal.com
Currently, he writes for Times Sport in Kigali as well as Sportsworldghana.
