Delasi is a down to earth concerned citizen of Ghana, a committed friend of the environment, a visionary who believes in sharing his dreams of a better world and he is the Soul God.
Delasi developed love for music at a very young age with a lot of influence from his parents’ countless collection of records. His passion for music knows no bounds, as this is what gives him the greatest joy. Delasi’s sound has a fusion of R&B, Soul and Hip-hop. This conscious crooner has the ability of sweeping people off their feet, drawing his audiences in when they hear him perform live. These days he’s venturing into new experiments with Afrobeats, Pop and some Dubstep. His music is generally political and talks about societal issues from the poverty stricken in society to the corrupt governments not doing their jobs. He also speaks about several other issues addressing the everyday man, relationships and matters of the heart.
Being a student of the fine arts, Delasi explores his talents not only through music but also poetry, illustration, playwriting and acting. He has not only appeared on Citi FM’s Writer’s Project, but has performed at the Ehalakasa Talk Party, Alliance Francaise, Dubois Center, Nubuke Foundation, Goethe Institute and Chale Wote Street Arts Festival. The most memorable performance to date is the Rufus Green in the Park where he opened for and performed on the same stage as Koo Nimo and George Darko, two highlife greats.
After an appearance at the World Poetry Day event held at the Pan African Writers Association (PAWA) House, The Accra Mail, a local newspaper publication described Delasi’s single ‘Where Do We Go’ as a ‘painful wail from a young man who even at his tender age seemed to have had a fair share of Weltschmerz’.
