I seldom find established musicians welcoming new entrants unto the Ghana music scene. In instances where they do, it is either for direct gain or an attempt to rub-off the Oprah-effect chalked by the newcomer. Quata Budukusu, now Budukusu, has proven to be a different kind of musician. In a video sent from Kenya, Budukusu endorses Teflon Flexx, the enigma whose emergence from the Upper East Region has got tongues wagging.

The idea that pure entertainment is largely Accra-bred, is gradually being contested. For Budukusu, his journey’s around the savanna regions have often revealed a huge bank of talents waiting to blow. He therefore wasn’t surprised to encounter a talent like from Teflon Flexx. The excitement is evident as he makes a video about the fact that Teflon Flexx is not upcoming. But rather, an artiste that has arrived, and deserves the respect of all.
Teflon Flexx who hails from Wiaga in the Upper East Region of Ghana, released an EP titled Village Boy In Suit. The EP which is available for downloads via #VillageBoyInSuit , is a story of foresight. Believing that the journey of life, though has a beginning, is not meant to be stagnated. Our rise to prominence, is not limited to where we come from. Our efforts can definitely take us to the top.
Sometimes, an artiste isn’t sure the reactions to expect from the industry, however, Teflon Flexx has enjoyed a roller coaster ride. All media engagements in Accra has ended up with an endorsement.
Starting his media tour with Zylofon Fm and TV. Teflon Flexx won the hearts of music aficionados like Willie Roy and Chief Charles. Also, one of Ghana’s finest entertainment show hosts and critics, Sammy Flexx endorsed his artistry. Mr. Massive one of the big brains in Ghanaian radio, also gave the young man a resounding endorsement. This appears to have added to the confidence already posited by the demeanour of Teflon Flexx.
Subsequent media engagements have been a barrage of positivity, as people are wowed by the quality of productions on the EP. Considering the fact that all songs except the title track were recorded in Tamale, the belief of artistes like Budukusu are beginning to manifest.

A few years back, most artistes from the savanna would journey to Accra with the hope of working with producers like Hammer, Zapp Mallet and several others. Today, Producers like Stone B, based in Tamale, are making the difference with the production of amazing sound quality.
