Wutah’s ‘Bronya’ was recorded before their split – manager
The manager of music duo Wutah, Babie Dapaah, has disclosed to Citi Showbiz that the group’s current hit song, ‘Bronya’ was composed and recorded before they parted about 7 years ago.
According to Babie Dapaah, the group had already recorded the song with a different music producer.
“It’s true. Bronya was done before they broke up. We only took it to Kin Dee to redo it. So it is not a new song,” she told Citi Showbiz.
Babie also added that there are more songs Wutah recorded before they split in 2009 which will be released in due time.
‘Bronya’ in Ghanaian parlance is Christmas. However, the song does not literally talk about Christmas. It is a party song that simply preaches being gay at all times.
In Akan when one says “yɛbro deda, yɛntwɛn bronya,” it literally means they don’t wait till Christmas before they booze. The connotative meaning therefore, is that they don’t wait for a particular event to take place before they take an action of urgency.
Wutah came into the limelight in 2004 when it contested for the Nescafe Africa Revelation music competition in Accra and came second to Praye. The name Wutah is a Hausa word which means fire.
Their debut album, ‘Anamontuo’ which has songs like ‘Adonko’, ‘Goosie Gander’ and ‘Big Dreams’ earned them eleven nominations including The Most Popular Song of the Year, Album Of the Year and Artiste of the Year in the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
In 2009, they separated and started recording their solo projects. Afriyie has released song like ‘I Do,’ ‘Love of My Life,’ ‘Tontonti,’ ‘Everlasting Love’ and ‘Here to Stay.’ Kobby also has songs like ‘Chiochio,’ ‘Pii Por Pii,’ ‘Warning,’ and ‘Father for All.’
Apart from ‘Bronya,’ they also have another song, ‘AK47.’ Wutah is signed on to NKZ Music.
