Veteran broadcaster to manage reggae musician Cojo Tee

Ghanaian Reggae musician; Ike Tee Ewudzi, who goes by the stage name Cojo Tee and based in the USA recently revealed that his new manager is now Ebenezer Adzei Anang aka Nii Anang Patapa, veteran journalist who is now a media consultant in Ghana.
Cojo Tee says he picked Nii Anang Patapa because he is an experience scriptwriter, broadcaster-presenter-producer and a great radio and TV content developer who presented the radio flagship musical program “The Nii Anang Patapa Show” on Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) Radio 1 from 1976 to 1999.
More on why Cojo Tee chose the former GBC employee, he says "I feel Nii Anang is a great colleague who understands my style of music which is important to me and my debut album Ashanti Warrior. I need someone that really appreciates my state of mind so they properly relay it to my fans and clients, plus the man has done great work marketing and managing music all his life"
Nii Anang Patapa is a native of Teshie -- a suburb in Ghana's capital city Accra where he also spent over 3 and half decades plying his journalism trade with the national broadcaster of Ghana; GBC. He became the Commercial Coordinator for Guinness 'Music For Your Dancing Feet' show on Ghana TV in the 1990s during which he was awarded the “Most Extraordinary Salesman of the year for GBC in 1994.
In the 2000's Nii Anang Patapaa spent time working in respective roles for GBC in senior management positions and represented Ghana in noted foreign conferences like in South Africa for Contact Africa in 1991, Marketing-AUB Senegal and the African Union General Assembly in Algeria, both events were in 2010 respectively.
Nii is highly dedicated to the symbiotic growth and development of Afro-centrism, especially with the advancement of the Ghana Music Industry. This is clearer in Ghana's rich cultural heritage now embracing intellectual, socio-political and economic emancipation to earn that high value of cultural currency.
Artist Cojo Tee believes his decision to settle on Ebenezer Adzei Anang as his Manager is because the former broadcaster will help him "take Ghana’s name up on the international music scene. He says "we will try to take things back to the glory days of the business when household names like Osibisa and E.T. Mensah were touring Africa and the globe with their music".
Music aside, Cojo Tee is a trained organizational psychologist with a Masters in Organizational Behavior from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology who lives in the Bronx New York. Find his music on ReverbNation https://www.reverbnation.com/cojotee
