Late last month, I made my predictions about who I thought would be nominated for the 2012 BET Awards in the Best International Act Africa category. While Edem was my second choice from Ghana, his continued branding efforts and repositioning continues to show he is purposeful on expanding and pushing his style of music onto the global scene. I appreciate his hustle.
Edem has just been announced as an Absolut Vodka Artist.
Continued success to him.
