Sony Music Publishing recently concluded its inaugural songwriting camp in Accra, Ghana which ran from January 5 to January 12, 2023.
The first-of-its-kind camp for the publisher saw it bringing in some of the most prominent African acts from across the continent for one week, including two of Zimbabwe’s most decorated artists – Rymez and Daecolm.
|The 2 platinum-selling Zimbabwean artists were invited to the exclusive camp alongside other decorated names such as Tems, Stefflon Don, Teni. Sarz, Lojay, Ladipoe, Ms Banks, GuiltyBeatz, Ozedikus, AV, Berwyn, Moon Willis, Jonny Coffer, and more.|
Daecolm’s invitation to this camp is another impressive feather to his already decorated cap. Earlier this week the American organisation – The NAACP (The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) announced the nominees for the 2023 edition of their Image Awards where Daecolm received 2 nominations for his writing on The Grammy-nominated Chris Brown album – Breezy.
The Sony camp was a very inspiring and a memorable experience, getting to work with powerful artists from all over Africa is something I’ve always wanted to do. A lot big records were made and I am really excited for the world to hear what everybody made. – Rymez
Rymez is also enjoying an incredible run having just secured collaborations with Nicki Minaj, Popcaan, Bugzy Malone, and more. Rymez also secured 2 production credits on Winky D’s recently released Eureka album for Shaker and Peter Friend.
Rymez is no stranger to collaborative writing camps as he last spearheaded the Pungwe Sessions writing camp with Point Black in Harare.
Both artists are set to release a slew of new music in the coming year.
