Kiki Banson to manage reunited Praye
Becca’s former manager, Kiki Banson of EKB Records will be managing hip life trio Praye who have announced their comeback after four years of a break-up.
Choirmaster, a member of the group which performed together at the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, told Citi FM’s Kwame Dadzie on Celebrity Radar that the group is back for good.
“We’ve resolved our issues. There is no confusion anymore. We are ready to play as a group and I have always said that when there is that opportunity to perform with my former group, I don’t see anything wrong with that. I know there are a lot of opportunities to follow what we did at the VGMAs,” he said.
When asked who initiated the reunion he mentioned Kiki Banson, former manager of Becca.
“My manager, the manager of the other team in addition to Kiki Banson who is fronting the whole thing, have really helped in making this happen,” he noted
“For now, we are working with Kiki Banson, Jerry Bonsu and another person. They are three,” Choirmaster added.
The group’s performance at the music awards was filled with super excitement and nostalgia as they thrill music fans to their old hit songs.
The Praye group, comprising Choirmaster, Kente and Big J Cartel was born in 2004 after they emerged winners of the maiden edition of the Nescafe African Revelations talent hunt.
They produced hit songs such as ‘Shordy,’ ‘Angela,’ ‘Jacket’, among others.
In 2014, members of the group went their separate ways but two of them (Kente and Big J) came back later to keep the group.
Choirmaster after the break up has released songs like ‘Catwalk,’ ‘Ghana’s Most Beautiful’ and ‘Pull Him Down’ and ‘Double Up’ while the other two have also done their individual and joint projects.
Recently, Choirmaster told citinewsroom.com that he would not mind joining the group again – but on condition that his former members would not repeat mistake they made in the past.
“Both my manager and Praye’s manager have met before and I remember what my management did was to present a contract to them. But when we met even though they disclosed all the projects they wanted to embark on, they did not give any positive reply,” he said.
He added that even though he wants to embark on his solo project, he would really want to see the group re-united.
“I’d really want to solve this issue before this year ends. I want to see Praye united although I will still be doing my solo projects. That is what I was working by posting something on 1st January, which was misconstrued by them,” he stated.
Information has it that the two is feverishly preparing to produce joint projects for the music market.
