Sonny Bally; Sonny Kwabena Amoako Akoanor Born in Accra, Ghana, is the next rising star in the Ghanaian pop music scene. His infectious music combines the energetic sound of the popular “hip-hop life” genre in his home country with the deliberately spiritual vibe of Jamaican “root reggae”. Sonniballi was born into a typical Christian family in Ghana, the first of three children. His parents wanted him to become a doctor. However, at the age of 9, Sonniballi discovered his musical talent when he started singing in the local Methodist church choir.

At the age of 17, against the wishes of his parents, Sonny decided to start a music career. His first success was discovered at the age of 18 by American producer Nana King, who worked with him on his first single. Sonny then formed a music group called “G Life” with three other friends. Namely the group produced two successful albums together; Kotoho – “Bow” and Ghana’s Abrabo – “Live in Ghana”, but split shortly thereafter. After “G Life,” Sonny worked successfully for several years with big Ghanaian entertainers like Mary Agyapong on a hit single called Adede, which means “sweet taboo”. He has also collaborated with other artists such as Slim Buster on the single “Georgina” and with Lord Kenya and more. In 2001 Sonny moved to the UK to expand his musical possibilities.

After several years of communicating, Sonniballi teamed up with London-based producer Eugene Nartey and the CEO of “Bad Habit” label Bright Okah to begin production on his debut album, First Scene Second. Sonniballi is a singer, songwriter, poet and avid storyteller who brings all his talents to his debut album while managing to balance the traditional with the modern. As he reports, his songs are drawn from his own personal life experiences and his guiding principles for Rastafari. “First Scene Second” While deeply influenced by his love of Jamaican reggae music, Sonni is determined to stay true to his roots.

“My culture is who I am, and that’s important to me, but I don’t just make music for my local audience, I make music that everyone can understand and enjoy.” Featuring a feel-good track, “First Scene Second” is set as a sure hit. In addition to being an interesting album, Sonni’s nascent album carries a positive theme. “The main message of his music is love, which is evident in tracks such as ‘Ama Fimpomah’, which express his deep experience of being in love, ‘I want to spread the message of love, all kinds of love; intimate love, for family love, love for yourself, and love for others”. Sonni didn’t just want to entertain with his music, he wanted to send out “positive vibrations.” “I call myself a ‘soul healer’ because that’s what I want to achieve with my music. I may not have been a medical therapist the way my parents hoped, but through my music, I’m still A Soul Healer.” First Scene Second will be released in fall 2009.
