Terry Bonchaka’s death affected my music career – Nana Agyemang

Ace Ghanaian highlife musician, Nana Agyemang, says the untimely death of hiplife artiste Terry Adjetey aka Terry Bonchaka adversely affected his music career.

Nana Agyeman featured Terry on the hit track Mr. Ode on his third album that contained other hit tracks like ‘Alomo Kitua’ and ‘Beauty Queen’ in 2003.

The song, which advises men against promiscuity, gained popularity and enjoyed lots of air play especially after the death of Terry.

But contrary to claims by a cross section of Ghanaians that Terry’s death shot the song into fame, Nana Agyemang told Hitz Entertainment News it rather reduced the life span of the song.

He said they had bigger plans for the track which happened to be the titled track of the album.

Nana Agyemang said they planned to shoot a high-profile video for the song as part of the promotion process but Terry died a few days before the shoot.

The ‘Kwahu Bipo’ hit maker further explained that they had finished buying all the items they needed for the shoot including, props and costumes, when the unfortunate incident happened.

Almost in tears, Nana Agyemang revealed that he still has a cap Terry was supposed to wear for the video in his wardrobe 12 years after Terry’s death.

He could not hide his admiration for Terry and confessed to Hitz Entertainment News that he had worked with some other artistes before Terry but the late artiste was a serious musician with exceptional talent who always attached a high sense of urgency to his work.

Nana Agyemang also hinted that he misses Terry.
Terry Bonchaka died in a car crush on October 29, 2003 after a performance at the University of Ghana, Legon.
