Becca’s career lost a bit of shine in the aftermath of a surprising breakup of working relationship with Kiki Banson. Pulse writer, Albert Benefo Buabeng writes how Bisa Kdei contributed to her 'resurrection'.
Her debut studio album, Sugar, released in 2007 established her with five nominations at the 2008 Ghana Music Awards with its lead single "You Lied to Me", adjudged Record of the Year.
Becca’s ascension under the guidance of Kiki Banson seem to be a match made in Heaven until after the surprising breakup of working relationship. It is however not hard to say that Becca’s career lost a bit of shine in the aftermath of that breakup.
Capitalising on a “relationship” with perhaps the hottest individual act in the country, Bisa Kdei, Becca’s “Hwɛ” has been reworked into a masterpiece. It must be said that the story of a “romantic relationship between Bisa Kdei and Becca was not a bad idea. Many bought the story of the new found love of Ghana’s favourite queen and its hottest prince.
Dozens of social media posts, hundreds of news stories, well planned citing of the “new couple” all contributed to what many did not know at that time as the upcoming remix of the song.
Then came visuals of the song which depicted two adults in some kind of romantic relationship. Neither Becca nor Bisa Kdei has been on a show without the host asking a question on their perceived relationship. And as such news items drive traffic to websites, they are subsequently published for consumption.
Just as the news was about dying out of the system, a picture of the ‘love birds’ started circulating on social media. Each was wearing a cap with the others name inscribed on it. What cemented the rumour in the minds of many was when Bisa Kdei surprised Becca with a flower and cake while Becca was being interviewed live on Gh One on Valentine’s Day.
Hate him for his unimpressive stage performance but one key element you cannot take away from Bisa Kdei is his unique voice. It was the best decision to have featured Bisa not only because he has gained a high level of popularity in Ghana’s showbiz circles, but the texture of his voice suits the piece.
