Fred Kyei Mensah, better known as Uncle Fredyma, is a famous Ghanaian sound engineer and music producer.
On December 23, 2033, award-winning Ghanaian musician Ofori Amponsah surprised him with a visit and left him speechless with happiness and gratitude.
In a Facebook post, Uncle Fredyma talked about how proud and happy he was that Ofori Amponsah chose to come to his house right after giving a great performance at the Ready to Perform Concert at the Platinum Bay Hotel.
In the post, Uncle Fredyma also talked about their journey in the creative industry from more than ten years ago.
He also said the great musician was happy and surprised that his children, especially Kyei Mensah, whom he remembered seeing when they were young, were now adults.
“WHEN OFORI AMPONSAH VISITED MY HOUSEHOLD TODAY.
In my almost 40 years of being in the creative industry, never have i felt so good than Ofori Amponsah’s surprise visit to my household this morning straight away after putting up a great performance at the Platinum Bay Hotel between last night and the wee hours of this morning. He was lit on the Ready to Perform Concert featuring Nana Amakye Dede, KK Fosu, KayBlez, Afriyie Wutah, OB Amponsah and others.
In his own time, he makes things so beautiful. He was surprised to see my children whom he saw in their formative years, grow to such heights especially Kyei Mensah because, the very day that DADDY LUMBA had booked CHM studios then at Mataheko for him to record his hit song “odo mmra fie”, was the very day he was given birth to that was a Valentine’s day.
We reminisced life when i discovered him 32 years ago, the challenges over the years and the way forward. One of the bitterest memories we revisted was, when i took him to perform at the newly opened National Theater in June 1993 together with Chairman General Kwami Sefa Kayi , the late Kofi Ani Johnson, General Marcus, Ras Caleb Appiah-Levi, Kwame Yeboah, Selina Orleans Lindsay, Daughters of Glorious Jesus and others and was sacked from Konongo Odumase SHS for appearing on tv during school time ⏲️.
We pleaded with the then Headmaster for mercy and he retorted “Ko na ko bo Concert band” because you preferred going on stage to learning in stages. Today, he is indeed playing concerts all over the world. Onyame ho y3 hu!
We are charting a new course in 2024. Ofori Amponsah, my household, is grateful for your visit and the powerful prophecies and prayers you laid on us this morning. I believe in your prophetic gift. Thanks for your visit and continue doing so often. What a beautiful precursor to the Christmas celebrations 🍾.
Good beads don’t rattle.”
