A local reggae artist is launching his single in Accra on September 29.

Richmond Bempong, known by his stage name Dewuro, is a Ghanaian musician from Koforidua, in the Eastern region of Ghana. 

His recording label DEWUROMUSIC will be releasing a hot track, called Need Somebody at a release party which will include a live band at Kona Cafe and Grill in Osu.

His music is a fusion of reggae, dancehall, hiphop, afro and highlife.

Bempong's stage name Dewuro comes from a traditional type of gong, to bring attention in the Ashanti kingdom palace.

Speaking with Pulse Ghana, Dewuro said his interest in music started in church, where his father was the music director and drummer. 

In his early years as musician he was a drummer for United Abbysinia, a reggae band from Accra. He still plays with various live bands.

"I love performing live as it connects me to the audience. It also means you express your emotions and can talk about different situations," he said.
