For several months now, her song entitled “West Africa” has been somewhat of an anthem for certain communities in parts of West Africa. The song, which has received well over 15,000 you tube hits and counting, speaks of her love for, and connection with the people of West Africa.
Recently, Karamanti was asked by Ghanaian based producer, and radio personality, Strike Dee, to record a song for his production company, S-Dee Music. The outcome was a single called “African Song” that was officially released in Ghana at the beginning of March and already is getting heavy radio rotation on several commercial stations in the region. Karamanti and her team are also in talks with promoters in Ghana about the possibility of a tour before the year is out.
Other African countries that are rapidly connecting with Karamanti’s music are Malawi, Nigeria and Zimbabwe. Check out the “African Song”here.
