GHANA RISING - SLIMBO - I THINK HE HAS THE X FACTOR:
Music: Slimbo - I think he has the X factor…producers take note..
(Slimbo is the second rapper)
I enjoy the numerous messages and film clips of GH artists I get via my facebook account -even though I’m rarely moved or impressed with said artists, -but step forward a young man called Slimbo, a rapper based in Ghana. He tagged me the above film clip and I must confess -I’m impressed and believe that he has the X factor and needs a good producer and management team -but who can do the job in Ghana? I have suggested Slimbo tag and contact: Reggie Rockstone, Mugeez and the boys from R2Bees and Jon Germain (Reckless Dolls) -but what do you think? Who should talented artists contact in GH? God Bless Slimbo -Ghana Rising is rooting for you. For more information on Slimbo visit: www.slimbo.net
