Industry News: Ghana’s Praye Leaves Praye Tenten, Explores New Music Frontiers

News media report Ghana’s Praye has parted ways with his music band Praye Tenten.The split is reportedly amicable. I’ve discussed artists walking away in terms of an artist and record label situation. I am yet to discuss artist leaving a band, especially where the band is unsigned. I am pressed for time so I will have to discuss that at a later date when future news stories  raises those legal issues. For now, check out the artist-label situation and an excerpt from the news below:

“The tallest member of music trio, Praye, Nana Kwame popularly known as Praye Tenten according to reports, has parted ways with the group which also includes Eugene Baah (Praye Ho-ne-ho) and Steven Fiawoo (Praye Tiatia).

Praye which means broom and stands for unity got their big break onto the music scene by winning the maiden Nescafe’s African Revelation competitions held in Ghana in 2004. They subsequently went on to emerge West African winners.

They have over the years dazzled Ghanaians with hits such as Shordy, Lasupadora, Wodin and Angelina, and have widely been seen as one of Ghana’s most compact and successful music trio.

When Myjoyonline.com contacted Eugene Baah, a member of the group, he confirmed the story saying, “Praye is still together only that Praye Tenten is no longer with the group.”

He said Nana Kwame left the group about a month ago on mutual grounds, explaining further that Nana Kwame opted to leave the group due to his busy schedules and his quest to explore new frontiers. “We agreed for him to leave.” Eugene stated. . .”
