WELCOME TERRY OSEI-From Destiny Sounds With ‘Afro Swing’

Terry Osei

Destiny Sounds, a record label stationed in the UK and Germany is out to do great things in the music
industry, and they have the right product to catapult the music, their brand and everything they stand
for; in the name of Terry Osei!

From Hip hop to Hip life to Hip-Dia, so many genres of music have been birthed, some not lasting
while others evolve with time; and one enterprising artiste is ready to alter the status quo by
projecting a genre that has already gained grounds in Europe, especially the UK.

The Afro Swing, which commenced somewhere in 2017, is an amalgamation of African-influenced
melodic rap hooks and Caribbean chord progressions. It borrows the percussive sounds of afro beat,
the basslines of bashment and UK trap bars; and German-based Ghanaian artist, Terry Osei, also
known as T.O. – is all prepped up to push it to another level.

T.O.’s authentic Ghanaian roots, which is injected in mesh of Hip-Hop/Rap, Afro beats, Dancehall and
RnB, encapsulated as Afro Swing – is heavily felt in his single, ‘Boomerang’, which was released in
January, 2019.

As a singer, songwriter and producer, T.O., who is signed to Destiny Sounds Label, also brands himself
with another moniker, ‘ARTrapreneur’ which demonstrates his artistic qualities as an Artist, Rapper
and Entrepreneur!

On the critically acclaimed ‘Boomerang’ single, the artiste stated; “I believe temptation is something we
all face as we go through life. The difficult part is being able to resist it! Using a boomerang as an
example, if you throw a “Boomerang” it always comes back again. Another example is having cravings or
addictive personality regardless how hard you try to overcome it, at times it just creeps back. There are
many boomerangs which I use as a metaphorical expression for temptation in the song. From experience,
Prayer and self-belief are the only thing that will keep you away from such temptations.”

He first made headlines in Europe when he and his former music partner “ManLikeStunna” released
the song “Shigege” in 2012. Due to T.O.’s passion for music, he sacrificed his academic career to pursue
and focus on his music career. He already has an EP to his name, ‘7 Crowns’ and is feverishly working
on a new single, ’Motherland’ – set for release in the second quarter of this year.

He is first recording artiste signed for the UK/Germany –based Destiny Sounds Company, a
conglomerate which houses a record label, a production company, Lost Saints Entertainment, and a
Football Agency.
