Tonya M. Evans

In this episode, I speak with Gafacci, a renowned Ghanaian artist and visionary, whose productions naturally include an adventurous afro twist with strong influences of electronic music. It's in his DNA. His interest in music was nurtured by his father, a former band member of ‘Juju’ music legend ‘Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey’. He has earned great recognition among several excellent artists who quickly involved Gafacci in production sessions in and outside Africa. He is also the brain behind the Jowaa project, where he produced several popular tracks including #1 downloaded bass track on Juno in 2017 and toured around the world.

He is now experimenting with non-fungible tokens as an NFT crypto artist releasing the first Ghanaian space exploration series starring "Nii" the red cockerel in collaboration with Ghana’s renowned satirical artist, Bright Ackwerh. In our conversation, Gafacci shares his journey through the world of cryptocurrencies to crypto art, his creation process and selection of platforms as well as some of the pitfalls. And he and his manager, Yussef, share how Gafacci uses music and technology to advance his philanthropic goals throughout the Diaspora.
