Ghana music industry from the era of Nana Kwame Ampadu till now have witnessed a countless number of music groups who started so well, but due to disagreement on pertinent issues, ruined all their hard-earned fame.
Notable among the great musical talents who once took the music industry by surprise include Nananom, Akyeame, Nkas??, Jane & Irene, Praye, VIP, Wutah, Double, and many others.
The above-mentioned split groups consisted of individual talents who agreed to come together and fight for a common goal. Fast forward and unexpectedly, they came to announce their split to pursue their individual agenda.
Back to the subject matter, September this year, music duo Keche, made up of Joshua Ampah and Andrew Cudjoe, will be 11 years in the music industry, a journey they say has not been easy but has been enjoyable.
In light of music groups splitting all over the place, Keche must be commended for staying together all these years and the young men tell Emcee Bebe of Cape FM fame in an interview that nothing can separate them, having overcome all the things that are likely to break up a group.
“For now we don’t see anything breaking Keche up because we have been able to conquer all the things that are likely to break a group. We used to have serious issues with money and women but we have been able to thrash out our differences,” Andrew said.
According to him, they have made a vow to keep the brand Keche because it is the name that feeds individuals.
“We see Keche as a company and it is the reason we are where we are now. Once you value the company you work with and give it all the necessary attention it needs, it will definitely survive. Keche will last forever because we have not even thought of breaking up anytime soon,” he said.
On their advice to the other groups, Joshua said he wishes they would put aside their differences and solve issues when they arise.
“We have not even gotten to a stage where a third party comes in to solve our issues because we always find a way of dealing with it. As humans, there will always be misunderstandings but how you come out of them is what matters,” Keche Andrew told Emcee Bebe in a virtual interview.
