Gambo visits Castro’s parents
Fast-rising Ghanaian musician Gambo has paid a surprise visit to Cofie Eshun, the father of the late hiplife star Theophilus Tagoe alias ‘Castro De Destroyer’.
The visit forms part of the activities of Gambo’s Takoradi media tour to promote his ‘New Era’ Extended Play (EP).
The ‘Drip’ hitmaker says he thought it necessary to pay his respects to the family of one of the greatest Ghanaian musicians that ever lived.
Castro’s father expressed gratitude to Gratitude for taking time out of his schedule to visit him.
Mr Eshun observed how other musicians visit Takoradi but do not bother to visit despite all his late son did for the Ghanaian music industry.
He also prayed for God’s blessings upon Gambo’s music career.
Gambo said he was humbled by the kind words and prayers from Castro’s father, adding that he was also humbled by the great reception he enjoyed in Takoradi.
On July 6, 2014, Castro and Miss Janet Bandu were reported to have drowned following a jet ski accident in Ada Estuary while on holiday with the Gyan brothers. The jet ski involved in the accident was recovered on the same day of their disappearance but their bodies had not been recovered, despite a search by the police. The pair remain missing till date.
Gambo’s ‘New Era’ EP launched on June 18, 2021 features the likes of veteran rapper, Ayigbe Edem, Strongman, Medikal and Sefa.
There are five tracks on the “New Era” EP which is dominated by features from current trending stars in Ghana.
D-Black’s Black Avenue Muzik label signee, Sefa, who is currently dominating local charts with her latest hit single “E Choke” (which features Mr Drew) was the only female star on the EP.
Announcing the release, Gambo shared the tracklist on his Instagram page on Monday, June 14, and captioned: “#NewEraEp 9pm this Friday‼️ Anticipate‼️ Which track will be?”
Gambo’s management has stated that the project will drop this Friday and will be available on all streaming platforms online.
Songs on the EP include: ‘No Stress’ produced by Goodboi; Beautiful featuring Sefa and produced by DJKwamzy; ‘We Move’ featuring Strongman.
The ‘Beautiful’ song speaks about the heartbreak Gambo suffered in the hands of his ex-girlfriend.
Gambo is deeply emotional about the song.
According to him, the song is one that anyone who has experienced a broken heart can listen to and console themselves.
The track is off his Extended Play (EP).
He recorded the song when he was in love and suffered a brutal broken heart.
Earlier this year when Gambo released the ‘Drip’official video believed to be the most expensive music video in Ghana for 2021 so far, Gambo made it clear that there was a song for everyone on his upcoming EP.
‘Drip’ saw Gambo recruiting the services of celebrated Ghanaian recording artist, Ayigbe Edem. It was premiered at 4syte TV premises in Accra on Friday, February 26, 2021 and has enjoyed massive airplay since.
The premiere attracted several A-list artists, with live performances from Kechi and others.
‘Drip’ was the first song off Gambo’s Extended Play. The banger is available on all major streaming platforms including YouTube, Audiomack.
The EP was launched on April 9, 2021.
‘Drip’ was produced by popular Ghanaian record producer, Fortune Dane.
Starring in ‘Drip’ official video are curvaceous Ghanaian actress, Moesha Boduong and social media sensation, Shugatiti.
Moesha and Edem were both in attendance at the premiere, which saw music lovers thrilled to great songs and performances from Gambo himself and other artists who came to support him.
‘Drip’ official video was shot on the seventh floor of the leading hotel in Ghana, Kempinski Hotel, Accra.
The video perfectly showcases the luxurious side of Ghana and is comparable to music videos of top American recording artists.
