CULTURE BROWN in Mexico
“Mexico is the first country I received so much warmth and gifts and appreciation, for this I was to say again a big thank you. I urge you to look out for the New Music Video that was shot in Mexico on the Green Bead recording label.
Culture Brown just bless-up mama Africa. This was his first time in Africa and had the opportunity to perform at several events, had radio interviews, and did recordings with some of Ghana’s talented musicians such as KUJO LION , AND KUNANA who both did a music video with him.
“This trip to Africa was truly a blessing as i got to visit several locations of history and interest. Areas such as the Cape Coast Castle Dungeons. This brought tears to my eyes as I reflected on the evils of slavery and the unjust treatment of the fore fathers.
I was welcome home by the people of Ghana, and was afforded a property. I love the state of Ghana endless and Africa by extension. I look forward to a speedy return”.
