IT has been long in coming but fans of Ofie Kodjoe can now exhale as the delectable singer launches her maiden album, The Essence, tonight, December 31 at the Soul to Soul UltraVox event at the +233 Jazz Bar and Grill in Accra.
Ofie, the soul music singer has loomed large on the music scene in the nation’s capital for a while now, raking in many admirers in the process. Though she always gives beautiful interpretations of other people’s songs, what many have been looking out for is something recorded under her own name and they have it now.
It is significance that the album is being launched on the Soul to Soul UltraVox platform since it is a forum that features only the best female singers around. Stephanie Benson, Raquel, Nana Yaa, Efya and Adina are among those who have already had their turns and everyone expects Ofie to deliver the goods tonight with the supreme touch she has always possessed.
The Essence album was produced by Kwame Yeboah. His band, OBY, will back Ofie at the 9.00pm programme which will also feature some special guests.
There’ll be a New Year countdown with firework display to usher in 2016.
