April is marked in many places around the world as Jazz Appreciation Month. Let’s modify that into a celebration of an appreciation for our local GH female musicians. Today, we celebrate…
Agatha Veronica Swatson, better known as Verony, knows how to capture hearts and attention with impressive vocals. She sings with her Yibor Afric Band. They played regularly at the Accra City Hotel until COVID -19 made them go into hibernation. The band is still together and available to perform on request.
Verony majored in Motion Picture Photography from the National Film and Television Institute (NAFTI) but music was too strong to resist and she decided to spend more time with it rather than working as a cinematographer.
She started getting attention in music circles when she participated in the MTN Hitmaker music talent competition in 2016.
She was first runner-up in the Vodafone Icons talent contest in 2018. Verony has a seven-track EP and a single to her name and is working toward a new EP.
