DUM-DUM SET TO LAUNCH OMEWORONYA IN SPAIN
Few weeks after releasing his debut album in Nigeria, elder Stephen Chukwudi Amaeze better known as Dum-Dum will be launching the awesome and soul lifting work tomorrow, in his Madrid, Spain base.
The ten-tracker entitled: Omeworonya was produced and mastered in Europe alongside the scintillating videos that are currently thrilling his daily increasing fans base. Interestingly, the inspirational work is already making waves on national and cable TV stations as well as major radio stations.
According to Dum-Dum, the beautiful songs were rendered in both Igbo and English and divinely inspired with a special message for the children of God. Speaking on what motivated him, the Obosi, Anambra State born emerging crooner, disclosed that the project started in 2003 and dragged into this year. 'Actually, the zeal and passion to praise God with my voice started in 2003, when I won 74,000 Euros in a Spanish football lottery, in Madrid, Spain.
So I now felt that the best way to praise and thank God was by doing a good gospel song in his Honour. However, I'd always loved singing. That is why the full album is entitled, Omeworonya, meaning, He has done it for me.' Continuing, the boss of D-Vista and Chista Investment, said he's fulfilled coming back home after a ten-year sojourn to sing and work in the Lord's vineyard. 'My passion for gospel music cannot be described and again, my environment in Onitsha, where I grew up also inspired me a great deal.'
Dum-Dum, who has the duo of Patty Obasi and Mbaka as role models, said he looks forward to taking his burgeoning career to the next level, noting that he wants to win souls for Christ by impacting meaningfully in the gospel terrain.
The act, whose work is currently being distributed and marketed by Afro Best International, equally plans to float an entertainment outfit that will basically cater for up and coming talents in the music industry. 'I already have a few acts on my label, but we will take off fully in 2011. I see all these as my little contributions to the growth of the industry as well as another way of appreciating God for his goodness in my life.
I was amazed with the reception I got while recently promoting my album in South East/South South regions, even in Lagos too. I will be back in Nigeria this Xmas, for the official launch of the album, which is coming after the European outing tomorrow, with Boniface Nwankwo and Obinna Ogugua, as chief and co launchers, respectively.'
