One of the most amazing things about the World Cup is that even non-participating nations will not miss out on the fun. Richie Blay is making sure of that on behalf of Ghana.
The festival of football that we know as the World Cup is ongoing in Russia. In about two weeks, it will be over but its memories will not die with it.
Speaking of memorable things the World Cup brings, one Ghanaian resident in the host country of Russia is soaring high. This is because Richmond Blay Nyamekeh has a song for the World Cup that has become very popular in Russia.
Nyamekeh's artiste name is Richie Blay, combining a short-form of his first name and his middle name. His song, titled "It's Time" is in the category of pop music.
This makes it suitable for the high-tempo of the sports it was made for.
Richie Blay featured a Russian artiste named DK7. Together, the two combined for perfect lyrics and rhythm.
Blay is more than just a young and talented musician. He is originally from Axim in the Western Region. In 2016, he got admitted into Volgograd State Technical University.
He has been featured a few times in Russian media. He has been hailed for his sound and the energy he brings whenever and wherever he performs.
Although he is determined to see through his education, Richie wants to see how far music will take him.
From the sound of his World Cup song, you can only guess that music will take him pretty far.
