The face and voice behind the ever-growing Alté scene in Ghana, Amaarae has admitted that she hasn’t been able to organized a concert in Ghana because she doesn’t have the audience.
Asked if Ghanaians are to expect an Amaarae headline show in Ghana, she said “I have always been apprehensive to do a show in Ghana because I have never felt like I had the audience to do it or the audience to do it on a scale and that’s kind of being my fear.
The Ghanaian-American singed added that for the past two to three years, she has been so skeptical about organizing her concert in Ghana which is her origin because she feels that she doesn’t have the audience to attain such stride.
She, however, expressed optimism about hosting her maiden concert in December and that would take place after she had released her upcoming album. She said it will be amazing to put up a concert for her cult fans and music enthusiasts in the motherland.
“I don’t know if people are going to be receptive to that so I have been like skeptical for the last 2-3 years now but I am hoping that once the album is out I definitely want to come back home just to connect more with people and hopefully in December it will be amazing to put together a show for the fans that are loyal and the community that wants to see it and come and be on it.
The singer whose real name is Ama Serwah Genfi confirmed on 3FM Drive that she is from Ghana but lives in London and has also accomplished tons of work in Nigeria.
She disclosed that her journey to international acclaim started in Nigeria after she and her ‘momager’ decided to do a lot of press activities and events in the West African Nation.
Amaarae is born to Kwado Boateng Genfi, Board Chairman of the Ghana Export-Import Bank (EXIM), and Ama Sarpong Bawuah, the first female board chair of Access Bank Ghana.
