Knii Lante is going deep in to reggae and showing his versatility as a musician with many sides. The practicing medical doctor who in 2000 released the hit single 'Mi k3 Bo Noo' a Ga afro pop music is about to drop a classic reggae tune titled ‘House Of Pain’.
Last year, Knii Lante happened to be the first ever Ghanaian musician to get an official invitation from Tony Rebel to perform at one of Jamaica's most recognized and biggest reggae festivals, 'Rebel Salute'. Knii Lante was indeed on the line up for the 14th edition of the festival alongside top reggae artists from Jamaica and elsewhere, billed to perform on 14th January, 2012.
The festival begun and ended before Knii Lante entered Kingston, due to visa challenges. But that journey was not fruitless. Prior to the invitation he had already booked his studio session at Grafton. For four weeks he had the opportunity to work with renowned reggae artist’s music producers and sound engineers at Grafton Studios.
After months of waiting, Knii Lante is finally ready to release 'House of Pain' produced by the legendary Dean Fraser, on Saturday September 15th. The single will be part of an album yet to be titled but ready to be released next year. It is a song that will challenge reggae artists locally but has the potential to crossover.
Knii Lante's 2010 album, Love & Revolution, is available on itunes and other major online music stores and outlets in Accra.
