Ghanaian musician Chemphe, known for his soothing lyrics, is embarking on a peace and poverty project as part of his efforts to contribute his quota to national development.
The project, dubbed Double P Project, started months ago and is expected to continue through next year.
For Chemphe, the project only further deepened his quest to fight for good social causes and encourage good social values.
The Double P Project involves finding different solutions to fighting poverty and also promote peace, ahead of Ghana’s 2012 general elections.
Chempe and his team will hence be embarking on a sensitization programme in some Ghanaian communities. They will use the platform to educate indigenes on ideas and how they could maximize their limited resources to enhance their lives and living standards while they also preach peace.      
Last week Saturday, the project was launched at the Casamora Hotel in East Legon in Accra alongside the release of the singer’s latest album titled, ‘New Day’ from the stables of E-Jam Records.
CEO of E-Jams Records, James Korsah Brown, told journalists at the launching that, “six months ago, even before the official launching of this project; we started working. We did a sensitization programme at Tema Newtown where most of the indigenes there are into fishing job. We educated fish mongers on how to use their limited resources to enrich themselves. We gave them strategic advice on how they can manage and improve resources and incomes. Also, a month ago, we went to a village at Saltpond to do same. We believe that fighting poverty is not just about giving people money but giving them good ideas and career guidance. We will also be embarking on donation programmes subsequently.”
The launching ceremony was used to screen videos of Chemphe’s programme outside of Ghana.
Born Henry Randy Agyekum, Chemphe promised the media at the ceremony that he was going to continue to churn out songs with lyrics that projected good social values.
Indeed, over the years, he has proven that. His first hit single ‘Why You Dey Treat Am Bad’, was a campaign song against domestic violence. He subsequently became a peace ambassador for a World Bank initiative.  
However, he said it saddened his heart that issues of war and famine still prevailed in Africa; hence he would not stop preaching peace and the need to fight poverty via conscientising the minds of Africans with good ideas to develop.
“My next sensitization project will be held in Saltpond on August 25 and Jakiti in the Eastern Region on November 29 this year,” he disclosed.
