We had a chat with Desmond Desmee and this is what he had to say.
Think Ghana Music…Tell me who Desmee is and where he is from?
Desmee…I am Desmond Drickly K. Amponsah I was born in 1992 to Vida Kyerewaa and Emmanuel Dankwa at Akyem Asafo in the Eastern Region of Ghana. I am a fun loving guy who is honest, faithful, caring and I consider myself to be a good person. I work very hard for what I have and for my dreams, I come from a poor family and for me I have to work hard to show that I am working hard to achieve my dreams. I am the only son of my father and the first son out of three children of my beloved Mum. I am slim and tall and a little fair in complexion. I completed Akyem Asafo basic school and continued my education at Akyem Asafo Senior High School in the year 2008 and passed out successfully in the year 2012.
Think Ghana Music…What does Desmee do in his free time?
Desmee…I listen to songs and watch movies (leisure time)….Blessing the mic is my hobby…that’s my motto.
Think Ghana Music…Which Ghanaian artistes inspire and motivate you to be the best you can be and for what reason?
Desmee…Obrafour, Sarkodie, and R2Bees
Obrafour uses proverbs and rhymes with them in his rap. Sarkodie he raps about true story lines and the way he rhymes the words and uses the twist when necessary I really like his style of rapping. R2bees (Mugeez) always amuse me with his great voice all time when singing. He is very creative and multi-talented as well because he can sing as well as rap.
Think Ghana Music…Tell me about your songs and what they mean to you personally.
Desmee…I wrote “Love Is Blind” because a best friend of mine, who I have known for a very long time was going through some issues of being betrayed by his serious girlfriend. He had done a lot for the girl but she didn’t respect the sacrifices that he had made for her, so when he told me about it I wrote this beautiful song for him not to put 100% trust in a girl…When my friend heard he was like waaaw, Desmee you are creative. When I wrote “True Love” it came from the core of my heart, although I got the idea from the song “Love Is Blind.” From my perspective I found that my friend still loved the girl and wanted her back, so I wrote this song and I showed him the lyrics and he was speechless. He told me that I must record the song and that he would help me to pay the studio fee. The recording engineer allowed us to record the song with the little amount of money that my friend had and I sang this beautiful song from the bottom of my heart. “Hardcore Rap” is a freestyle rap for my fans to see that I have not stopped rapping but have added singing to my repertoire in order to be different in the Ghanaian Music Industry. So if they hear me singing they will know that I am multi-talented and should not get confused when they hear me also sing instead of just rapping.
Think Ghana Music…I am going to dip into your personal life and I hope that is okay…it is only 2 questions and you may answer or not, it is up to you….
Think Ghana Music: Do you drink alcohol?
Desmee…Please I don’t drink alcohol
Think Ghana Music: Are you in a serious relationship at this time with anyone?
Desmee…Am single too am not in any relationship
Think Ghana Music…thank you for answering….now the last question. Tell us what you think about the platform of ThinkGhanaMusic?
Desmee…Think Ghana Music is a music site that promotes Ghanaian music and the best Gh. Music site that is helping the good underground Artiste in Ghana into the Ghanaian Music Industry. They share and feed us with all the information in the music industry that is relevant to us and what we need to know….to me Think Ghana Music is one of the Best Gh. Music platforms and is my prayer that they become the Number One Site in Ghana and to continue their good work with the musicians who need them.
Think Ghana Music….Thank you very much for your time and God bless you always!~!
