Fast Rising Act...Miz Gold
Came across several photos of her and my first thought was " A new Goldie?", well because of her hair colour. I read about this fast rising singer and came to a conclusion that she is indeed an act to look out for.
Miz Gold is a songwriter, singer, model and former dancer born in Ibadan, Oyo State .Signed onto ZOME Records International Limited, she is a dancehall artiste and also sings R&B. ZOME Records International Limited is a progressive and independent Nigerian Registered Record label which is owned and managed by Mr Brian Greenaway (British) . The Record Label currently has 2 artists. She has released the following official promotional singles “I Love the Way” followed by a music video which was shot in Accra , “Tinka Tinka” ft. Sugar Boi followed by music video shot by Patrick Ellis in Lagos, “Diva” ft. Guru, a Ghanaian music star , followed by music video shot in Lagos. “Take Care” which was recorded and produced in Accra Ghana. “Kokonsa” which was recorded and produced in Accra Ghana, “Whisper” followed by a music video which was shot in Lagos Nigeria. For some reasons, she is termed a Ghanaian artiste as well as a Nigerian artiste.
She did most of her promotions and multiple performances alongside top Ghanaian and Nigerian artistes such as Wande Coal, Inyanya at the Calabar Festival and D Black on Music Music on TV3. She was also recognized in Nigeria as Best Female Dancehall Artiste and nominated for the Nigeria Music Video Awards as ‘Best Video by a New Artiste’ for her music video Tinka Tinka. 2013 will be a defining year for her as she releases her debut album ‘Man Zomi’ which has been produced and will be released later this year on September 28th. She intends to feature with a number of Nigerian, Ghanaian and Jamaican artistes in the future.
The true Diva and fashionister said,” This year is going to be a year that my fans will see a different side of me that they have not seen before, such as classy music videos, crazy chique fashion styles, different hair styles, wild shoes and colorful costuming.” Nothing makes her happier more than getting comments from her fans showing their appreciation for what she is doing.
Miz Gold performed at the 1st FESTAC Music Festival on Saturday 13th April 2013 where she shared the stage with 2-Face, Flavour, Wiz Kid, Banky W and many other top celebrities. She is the recent ambassador of Vinin Tonon Italian wine in Nigeria. There are more endorsements to come in the near future. She recently performed at Ghana Bass Awards for Dancehall and Reggae music in Accra on the 5th July and also at the ‘City People’ Awards in Lagos on the 14th July which featured many top Nigerian and Ghanaian artistes. The release of her new video ‘Diva’ shot in Lagos, Nigeria is scheduled 27th July 2013.
