Actor cum producer Van Vicker will in no time prove to Ghanaian musicians that he is capable of singing as he is currently working towards releasing a 12-track album.
Even though Van had reportedly denied reports that he was recording with Stay Jay of ‘Shashiwowo’ fame, NEWS-ONE can say that the fine actor is currently in the studios.
According to a NEWS-ONE source, he was recording with Lynx Entertainment and had so far recorded a number of songs.
“The album will be a collection of different genres of music including Pop, Afro pop and Hip Life. He is not sure how he will call the album yet. But all will depend on the final product,” the source said.
The music is being recorded at a time when there are a lot of media reports about him, especially on his alleged brawl with actress Tonto Dike.
It is most likely his lyrical content will highlight some of his experiences with the media and also clarify issues on how he wants it to be.
Some entertainment observers said it would be suicidal if he took on the media through his songs.
Meanwhile his decision to sing follows a trend in Nigeria where almost every actor wants to sing.
Omotola Jalade, Genevieve Nnaji, Patience Ozokwor, Jim Iyke, Nkem Owoh, Stella Damasus and a number of others have albums to their credit.
In Ghana, Agya Koo, Mr. Beautiful and Mercy Asiedu are known for their singing prowess.
Van just wrapped up the shoot of his latest movie. He told Citi FM he would change the working title,’ Distance’.
He also said his eight-year-old daughter also shocked him in the movie with the way she handled a crying scene, noting she made him realize that she would become a chip of the old block.
His son is however not gifted with acting so he wants him to play football.
The new movie features some of the crème de la crème of Ghana’s movie industry like Kofi Adjorlolo and Van himself who is also the producer and director.
The movie is the third from the stables of his Orange Productions, after ‘Friday Night’ and ‘Raj’.
