    Kologo- a traditional musical instrument made of two tiny ropes stringed to a goat/sheep skin woven/sealed on a calabash, was only regarded as a traditional musical instrument by the Indigenous people of Bolgatanga. It was until, Atongo Zimba made its sound popular, exposing it to the global audience in the 1990s. King Ayisoba also took this musical instrument across several continents, rocking thousands of crowds he performs live singing and playing this instrument.

    Stevo Atambire, though relatively young and new has tipped by many as a global brand. Stevo, unlike Atongo Zimba and King Ayisoba, is a contemporary artiste who fuses his kolongo melodies with modern Afro beats to produce what is enjoyed by both older and younger generations.

    Stevo released his first album in 2012 and sold over 50000 copies in the Northern part of Ghana alone. In a country where pirating i not uncommon, artistes in Ghana rely on shows and endorsement deals to make cash ins, selling 50000 copies of his first album is like being certified Platinum by RIAA in America.

    Stevo has performed at Alliance Francaise in Accra and has also toured Europe together with Wanluv da Kubolor and the afro gypsy band. His energy and rawness on stage is something that is lacking in Africa showmanship lately, a trait he is so much sought after.

    He Confirmed to harmattangh.com through a phone interview that, his second album is ready and is produced in the form of a musical video album. The video Album was directed by Wanlov da Kubolor and Stevo Atambire. He also revealed that the album features new rap sensation Yaa Pono (Ponobiom) among other notable artistes.

    When quized further about his expectations for this album, he was very optimistic about the prospects of this album and hopes that this album will take him to the apex of his musical career.

    The Video album will be launched on the 8th of April 2017 at the Ashaiman Lorry Park, and 15th of April 2017 in kumasi cultural center.
