I dream of Africa

I dream of  Africa as my mind manifests  over  all its greatness that matters. I hear of stories  imagined and true; from far away empires  and palaces.Are things as they are,? Kingdoms  spread  all over domination, across deserts and thick forest lands. Mothers   telling stories under moon light Coconut  compounds.

So i asked myself, why  the infighting,? from the North to the South, from the Eastern sea shores to the western trade zones. Wars, famine and unrest, caused by  greed, selfishness and hatred.

Where are the noble men and wise women of generations past?, have your daughters gone to the hill tops to fetch water from the spring crops.?Are your young men still waging battles among their brothers? for if you trade your  resources for your gun sources; in the morning you will find  out  you have no life force.

My Africa, your lands have no men to harvest your grains crops; yet the harvest is due and  the young and old cry out  for food.So  I kept my dream of Africa alive, “pregnant with patience” until her Sons  and Daughters return and spend time close to their father and Mother, their towns kins men and women.Then tears will stop for then all Will understand that their hearts have  come to stay  and engage.

Who is Waconzy? Take a listen

As you know, the history of the Nigerian Music industry would not be complete without mentioning the name Waconzy who maintains the fastest fan growing base in Nigeria, Africa and internationally.  With his knowledge as a project manager, Waconzy has built a strong social media fan base with hit songs that cut across various ages, genders and geographical boundaries currently making him one of the most popular and sought after Artists in Africa and beyond. As one of Nigeria’s A-List Artist internationally managed by Geobek Entertainment (South Africa) and published by Youngane Productions (South Africa), Waconzy is ready for international entertainment business, endorsements, collaborations, live performances, tours and more award nominations.

You know him very well as Waconzy but he is also Obinna Kelvin Anyanwu, born on the 10th of August in Port Harcourt city of Nigeria. Waconzy is a blend of two English words, “Wacko” and “Zany” which describes his style of music as Afro-centric by combining Western and African rhythms in creating a marvelous blend of music for all Living Standards Measure (LSM).

In 1998, Waconzy recorded his first song while he was still in high school. Waconzy released his first commercial single in 2008 titled IKEBE SUPA, which gained huge nationwide response from fans who enjoy rich African music. This inspired Waconzy to be a commercial and original Artist of his own kind of music which built a fan base of young and old Afro-pop music lovers in Nigeria. Over the years, Waconzy has grown from an upcoming Artist to a pace setter in his industry by creating a niche of his own music. Waconzy is in a league of his own with little room for competition as he says “the sky is big enough for all birds to fly”.

With Waconzy’s creative style of delivering remarkable lyrics that cut across all ages, some fans now call him “Supa Dupa Nigg#”, while others call him “Awah”. Also, sometimes his fans refer to him as “Mr. Tumble the stage”. Waconzy has been able to carve a niche for himself in the international music scene, with his success, money and fame one would expect him to be arrogant with ‘diva tendencies’ but yet the handsome young man prefers to be seen as your best friend as he remains grounded and humble.

Waconzy is a multiple Glitz and Odudu award winner and among his accolades include, Song of The Year for “Ikebe Super” in 2009 and the same award in 2010 for “I Celebrate” at the Glitz awards. He also collected the Best collaboration award at the 2010 Odudu awards among others. With such accolades, it’s no wonder he has an ever increasing fan base.

Waconzy is popularly known for his song I CELEBRATE, a song fused with rich African rhythm, Naija Pidgin English and English language, generally accepted by all African music lovers. Since the release of the “I Celebrate” album (listen here: http://www.reverbnation.com/waconzyworld), Waconzy has gained huge recognition in Nigeria as one of Nigeria’s A-List Artists, having performed in several major concerts Nationwide and international.
