Meet Fra, The Band That Pushed Saturday Live Beyond The Limit


The average time that each of them has played a musical instrument is ten years.

A year ago, they came together to form a band that was a mixture of different people with different backgrounds.

‘Fra,’ in Twi, means ‘to mix’ and the group adopted the name to show the strength in the diversity that they are so proud of.

On Saturday, June 4, they appeared on Citi FM’s Saturday Live, which is hosted by Kojo Akoto Boateng.

The show helps to catapult Ghana’s talent in music and poetry into the limelight. It is broadcast live every Saturday, from 2pm to 4pm. Saturday’s show also featured Nene Narh, Kojo Mensah Gavu, Robin Huw and Reynolds the Gentleman.

For the first hour, these talented young men showcased their gifts in music and poetry. They began by paying tribute to the people who were lost in the June 3 2015 disaster. Then they moved on to play some great live music.

At about three o’clock, the “Fra” band took over and thrilled listeners with some great sounds. They were so good that the show was extended to 5pm.

Saturday’s show was so exciting that a listener, Adwoa, drove to the studio just to see and to spend some time with the band that was doing so well.

The “Fra” band released their first single, Dumsor, last week and has promised to release some more before the year ends.

The band is signed onto the Vision Inspired Music record label.
