Ghanaian band, FRA! on Friday, August 10, 2018, launched its maiden album titled FRA!ternity at the Piano Bar in Teshie, Accra.
The event, which attracted a large number of personalities from the music industry and the general public, witnessed some momentous live musical performances from the band itself, as well as other celebrated artistes such as veteran musician, Ben Brako, Afro Pop artist, King Promise, Adomaa, Susan August, Six Strings, Queen Ayorkor, Yanful and a host of others.
The album launch did not only offer music fans of FRA! an opportunity to enjoy some of its hit songs on the album, but to enable the eclectic band to officially introduce itself to the Ghanaian music scene.
‘FRA,’ translates to Twi as ‘to mix’ —and the band adopted the name to show the strength of the diversity that it’s so proud of.
Made up of Martin Adjartey, Maxwel Klu, Selorm Dornyoh, Joshua ‘Virgen’ Boateng, and George Ashirifie ‘Gogoe’, the band started in 2015 at Nungua, Accra, initially playing largely cover versions of popular songs at its shows.
The boys, however, realized that they had the ability to create their own songs and for two years now, they have been releasing hit singles, which have so far been featured on their maiden album.
FRA!ternity, which combines Highlife, Afrobeat, Rock and Soul elements, has songs such as Crazy (ft. Maayaa), Mmaa (ft. Adomaa), Lover (ft. Kueiqu Afro & Susan Augustt), Another Day (ft. Robin-Huws), Fra In The Building (ft. Reynolds the Gentleman), Kokonsa (ft. Six Strings) and Ego Bee (ft. Dave da Musicbox), Moments (ft. O’minor), Ozimzim Party, Akono Ba (ft. Kyekeyku & Senku band), Happy Yourself Remix (ft. Efya).
