 ‘Books and lyrics, a project aimed to bring together book and song writers, producers and students to provide a holistic education­al experience to bridge the gap between music and lit­erature, has been launched in Accra.

The project seeks to foster deeper understanding of both art forms by empow­ering young people through the exploration of great mu­sicians and literary works.

Launching the project, the initiator and Chief Executive Officer for Aim Ghana Foundation, Ms Glad­ys Biney, said the project aspired to equip students with skills that would serve them beyond the classroom, nurturing their intellectu­al, emotional and creative growth.

She said, often times most people did not under­stand or pay attention to the lyrics of a song and tends to interpret them wrongly.

Ms Biney said the proj­ect would not only focus on music but to raise funds to support less privileged but brilliant and talented in the society.

“There are some upcom­ing artists who do not have managers or supporters to achieve their dream but are brilliant. The project has come to empower, educate and support brilliant minds in the industry,” she stated.

She called on individuals and organisations to support the initiative to help project music and educate masses on the importance of lyrics.

Ghanaian highlife musi­cian and songwriter, Joseph Nkrumah Buabeng, popularly known as Nero X said the ini­tiative would help musicians write good lyrics that would educate the masses.

He pledged his support towards the successful im­plementation of the project.

The Registrar of Knuts­ford University College, Mr Frank Adjei-Nterko, a part­ner to the project under­scored the need for students to cultivate the habit of reading and do away with social media that would not bring meaning into their lives.
