The world is finally paying attention to Liberian music.
CHARLOTTE, NC – 9 Dec, 2017 – Both 2016 & 2017 were good years for Liberian music history. Many websites, blogs, and talk shows were created to push Liberian music & culture forward. The Liberian music industry also experienced a few set-backs; the loss of Quincy B and the charges against Bucky Raw being the most unfortunate ones.
However, the world began to experience Liberia in a different way with the launching of the Top 100 Liberian Music Videoplaylist. Artists like MEZONIC, Tamba Hali, Flex, G-RIZE, Bucky Raw, Kizzy W, Christophe, Z.WE etc… had huge impacts in the Liberian music industry. MEZONIC, who is also a record label owner and an artist manager, released 3 major music video projects in the span of 8 months. His video for his song, Dah LehVo is still one of the most talked about videos. He launched the Top 100 Liberian Music Video playlist to showcase a compilation of quality Liberian music videos to the world. He was an opening act for WIZKID in Washington, DC, USA (July 2017). The WIZKID event was a sold-out event with more than 5000 fans in attendance.
MEZONIC released several hit records and set the bar high for uniformed dance groups in Liberian music videos. MEZONICalong with Jimmy Black & WF DOC formed the Liberian Music Video Awards foundation. The first annual Liberian Music Video Awards is scheduled to be held in Liberia in March of 2018. MEZONIC claims that one of his most important achievements in 2017 was the ability to sign, develop, and manage other Liberian acts.
Tamba Hali who happens to be an NFL Linebacker for the Kansas City Chief’s, scored a major touch-down in the African music industry by releasing the video for his smash hit single, The One For Me. His performance for the WIZKID concert in July 2017 was one of the most memorable because he brought out about 20 plus female dancers on stage.
Bucky Raw had a great year with his mix-tape Country Soda.He performed for sold-out crowds from Minneapolis, MN to Philadelphia, PA. He was on the verge of completing his follow-up mix-tape, Country Soda 2 but ended up in some legal issues.
Flex also had a solid year, by first doing one of the biggest Liberian records of all-time, Holy Ghost Fire the Demons.His music video & song featured the World’s best selling African Artist, AKON. Flex also released Dancing Shoes among other hot Liberian music videos.
Fast forward to later in 2017, Dance-hall/Afro-beat artist, Z.WE caught MEZONIC’s attention which flourished into a management deal. Z.WE is without a doubt one of the hardest working, young Liberian artist. Here is his BIO to learn more about him.
