Ghanaian music producer Owusu Sekyere Adu popularly known as Owusek for years now has been out of the country busily working on a new venture, Adum African Market in New York.
The man who left the country in March 1993 has not been active in music production in recent times due to low sales of CDs. Speaking to Zionfelix.net, Owusek said he has been busy in America working on expanding Adum African Market, a business he setup eleven (11) years ago because music production is not lucrative as it was in the past years.
According to him, his new business, Adum African Market which has been in existence since 2005 “has been attached to Owusek Production here in America because I can’t stop music entirely”.
Mr. Owusu Sekyere Adu before he left Ghana worked with A.B.K Pharmaceutical Avenue and Kesewaa Hotel in Kumasi.
As a producer, Owusek who said he has produced about sixty (60) albums in an interview with Zionfelix.net from his New York based residence worked with highlife singer Oheneba Kissi on five albums, produced Daddy Lumba’s ‘Aben Wo Ha’ CDs in America and Canada, produced Ofori Amponsah’s ‘Asew’ and ‘Me Pera Wo’ albums. He has also produced veteran musicians like Appiah Fodjour, Pat Thomas, Kofi Abraham and many others.
Before setting up Adum African Market in New York, Owusu Sekyere Adu during his first eleven (11) years stay in America worked with Cantamanto African Market owned Frank Shamal but he had to open his venture due to the divorce between his boss and wife.
For these years as a businessman, the boss of the Adum African Market has not had issues with any individual or company.
