It is customary to have gospel musicians organise concerts at church auditoriums and the national theatre to launch their albums, but Nii Okai keeps pushing the limits.
Nii has released his 5th album "Saving Hearts" at the new Junction Mall at the Nungua Barrier last week with a massive flash mob dubbed the Saving Hearts Storm (SHS) that held fans and patrons to the mall spellbound for hours. The activity was later replicated at the West Hills Mall.
The new 11-track album which features some of Africa’s best musicians and producers including Danny Nettey, Koda, Ijeoma Mekomam, David Kaywabeatz Kyei, Francis Osei among others was not only available on CDs but also on trend-setting USB wristbands which bore the inscription “I am a heart saver”.
Commenting on the successful SHS, Nii Okai said
“The Saving Hearts Storm is the new phase of our Saving Hearts Project where a third of the proceeds from the sale of the album goes directly to fund heart surgeries for needy Ghanaians under 10 years in collaboration with The Ghana Heart Foundation.
After this ground-breaking launch, we are set to go countrywide and beyond with our products while showcasing our success stories as regards the beneficiaries so far. I want to thank my family, the church and its leadership, corporate Ghana, my indefatigable team, partners, friends and fans across the world for supporting us on this project, and urge that we do more as there are more hearts waiting to be saved.”
Patrons at the Junction Mall, especially Shoprite were treated to a rotation of the new tracks including "Trinity", "Boundary Lines", "Coming back again" and the remixed "Moko" be which are said to be already enjoying good airplay and hits across social media.
