Biography of Ded Buddy


People call him “the man with the silky voice. Others call him “Ghana’s R&B man”. Eric Turkson, aka Ded Buddy, whose presence was established in hiplife industry years ago is due to release his much anticipated second album entitled “Abofra Wisua”, a follow-up of his first album by December 2005.

Ded Buddy, who is also known as the ladies man, realized his calling into the music industry at the age of 6. He used to sing in churches and he fully realized his talent in music during his secondary school days in Ghana. Friends used to call him “buddy music” because his voice was beyond description.

In 1990, together with Eddie Blay, Tiny Quaye and Jake, Ded Buddy formed a group called NFL. Exposure gained in NFL led him to perform for Stevie Wonder during Panafest 1994.

He also performed at many other events. Being classified as the best Akan R&B singer, Ded Buddy in the 1990’s translated Boyz II Men’s “I’ll make love to You” into Akan and this caught the attention of many fans.

His music prowess led to an invitation by former President Rawlings to perform at the first ever peace concert organized in Accra. He was also invited to sing at Miss Ghana event.

Encouraged by friends and family, Ded Buddy released his first hit album 5 years ago. His name became a household name and fans related easily to his music. When asked what pushes him to make good music, “my love for music encourages me to always make good music” he said.

On who inspires him the most in the music business, Ded Buddy replied that God has been his inspiration. “My spirituality has gotten me this far so I give all the thanks to God. Without Him, I am nothing” he said. “On earth, oh man!!!

When asked whether he enjoys studio work more than live performance, Ded Buddy with a big smile on his face emphasized that he enjoys live performance more than anything. “I love live performance because it gives me the chance to electrify and connect with fans”. On advice to hiplife artists, he replied that since musicians are role models, artists should try and stay away from smoke and drinks.

Ded Buddy intends to establish an independent record label called Buddy Tunz.

This state of the art production company will greatly assist many other artists to release their music.
