His biological name is Mohamed Ibrahim popularly known in the entertainment industry as Javada Empaya Alonzo Sparta or you can call him Empaya Alonzo. Empaya Alonzo is a new sensational in the dancehall genre, also intuitive for art work which whatsoever Empaya touches turn to gold. Born and raised in Agona Swedru – Central Region (Ghana), but wasn’t born for Ghana Alone! Empaya is for the World.
Alonzo Empaya started his education from Greenfield school, and finished at Nsaba Secondary School at Agona Nsaba – class of 2009. He likes Reading, searching and learning to know new things.
He had hit released tracks like Bamasalah (No worries), Bariyawa, Somebwoy (Badmind), War Fare, etc. He had been on so many platforms to perform in Agona Swedru, Kasoa, etc. Listen to some of his tracks below:
He has been pursuing music as his career since thirteen years of age. It is a passion he had since he was a youth. But never been able to use this talent till he grew up at the age of twenty years ago, Empaya! The ting deh now that’s that. Right now music is his observations of the day to day life of people living in and around Agona Swedru –Ghana as well as Central region is concerned. “His music will tell you more about him than l ever will”
Jamaica, Nigeria, Caribbean, U.S.A. Canada, London, Europe Globally, inspires him to write a god songs. His music comes from his heart, soul, and mind of ghetto people (he means everyday people). His current view on the music industry in Ghana is that, it is a one side business, Swedru if you own your owner Recording Studio or a rich man then you can be able to sell your music well.
He does not have a preferred genre of music but like Dancehall, Hip-Hop and Reggae. Now and then he listened to Pop and Alternative. He wouldn’t say that there is a specific sound within any of the genres he likes that grasp my attention, he likes music in general; so as long as the beat nice and he can vibe with it, it can gwaan (Happen).
Empaya Alonzo wouldn’t say he looks up to anyone artist as a role model, but he will rates: Vybz Kartel, Movado, Busy Signal, Aidonia, Bounty Killer, and Sizzla Kalonji, Alkaline, Shawn Storm, TommyLee Sparta, Shatta Wale, StoneBwoy, Samini, I-Kane, Boosh Kash, Mazin Dagan, etc. as well as foundation people for the generation like Gregory Isaacs, Beres Hammond, Bob Marley and his sons.
He also likes Hip-Hop artistes such as Tupac Shakur, Fifty Cent, Lil Wayne and T.I. Empaya Alonzo likes because most of these artistes are true to themselves, and they display a raw passion for the work they create. His top five (5) artistes of all time would have to be: Bob Marley, Michael Jackson, Tupac Shakur, Bounty Killer, Vybz Kartel, Movado, Shatta Wale, StoneBwoy, Samini, and TommyLee Alkaline.
It varies on how long it takes him to write a song, it is dependent on his mood. It can sometimes range anywhere between half an hour to the entire day. If he wants it to be one of his best, it can take even up to a month.
If he had one message to give to the youth in Ghana and the world in general is to work hard on developing their talents, and don’t stop until you achieve your dreams. Be yourself and don’t try to walk in anyone else’s shoes – it’s ok to admire them, but always be true to yourself. This is just a musical expression globally…….
