A 2011 SUNY Canton graduate has unveiled a new music video to encourage peace and understanding a week before elections in his home country.
Okyere “Walter” Twumasi of Brooklyn recently contacted several of his former professors to share his production. Using his own musical resources and the artistry of his friends, he composed, arranged and produced a bilingual rap/hip-hop song to encourage his belief in peace for Ghana, and in the entire world.
“On December 7, Ghana will have their election for their next president,” Twumasi said. “On that note, I have composed a song to help promote peace among the various political parties, ethnic groups and tribes.”
Twumasi, who studied healthcare management at SUNY Canton, said his homeland is one of the most beautiful, but poorest and chaotic places in the world.
Previously, Twumasi composed a song about SUNY Canton while he was taking classes on campus and was a member of the Gospel Choir. He also won second place in the 2007 RooTube video contest.
