New artistes aiming to reach the top keep popping up all the time and one hopeful of making a big impact on the music scene this year is Serwah Susan Amoakohene, known to many simply as SSUE.
Daughter of prominent music industry personality, Kofi Amoakohene of scratch studios, SSUE who bubbles with confidence believes her name would be on most music loves lips by the end of the year.
She has shared stage at various times with acts like Becca, Osibisa, Yinka Davis and Steve Bedi. She performed at last year’s dream child concert at the national theatre and sang backing vocals on the united kingdom-based Ghanaian trumpeter Paul Bilson’s stuff it album.
The first single under her name is due out by April. Her debut collection of songs is expected out by June to coincide with her attendance at this year’s MIDEM, the international music exhibition, conference and festival to be held in Cannes, France.
“I arrived with my own approach fused with a variety of influences from here and elsewhere. I’m simply me and I want everybody to soon sit up for my sound” SSUE said with an air of self-assuredness around her.
Born in the United States, SSUE moved to Ghana with her parents when she was four years OLD. She returned to us where she studied Marketing and Finance at the University of Maryland.
She however could never get her first love of singing out of her system and finally settled with it after trying and struggling with various jobs in her field of study.
SSUE’s sense of confidence also comes partly out of her association with the international singer and voice coach, Bibie Brew. She has been under Bibie’s wings for a while now and the two women seen to get along extremely well.
“It has been a great pleasure and very inspirational being entrusted with an absolutely beautiful person to coach and assist in the preparation of her maiden album. Given her drive and determination, I know she would definitely come off as a successful act.”Bibie says about SSUE.
It is always tough everywhere for new acts to soar but it seems SSUE is getting the appropriate push to make her name for herself and she is more than determined to make the world stop and listen to her.
