Project fame finalist, Anderson returns with I don’t know
When you remember the scintillating performances Anderson Amos gave during the 2015 MTN Project Fame edition, one is likely to have goose bumps. Now, the music maestro has returned with the same effect in his latest enchanting record dubbed, I Don’t Know.
Within the record, Anderson evokes emotions while reminiscing on “unrequited love and feeling inadequate in a relationship, while dealing with the seeming push and pull of desire,” he tells Weekend Beats.
The song floats over gentle Caribbean percussion, with Anderson’s lithe vocals stretching across the groovy bop. It’s a defining record for Anderson, whose discography has been dauntless since his stint with the Project Fame show.
Describing his sound as universal, he cites his influences to include a diverse range of acts, including Michael Jackson, Lucky Daye, Angelique Kidjo, The Beatles, Masego and Black Coffee.
He traces his evolution back to 2010 when he “was in an artiste development programme in Ghana. However, before then, I had been making music with friends in secondary school as far back as 2006. Before then, I had contributed to my mother’s album, in 2004. So, music has always been a part of me.”
Announcing his upcoming EP release, which would be “an expression of me as I am,” Anderson hopes that he can “take my music across borders and continents, spreading his gospel of love and life.”
