To make a formal and gilt-edged entry into the world of music, QuaD releases his debut song, “Southside”.
Professionally known as QuaD, Selassi Addaison realized his passion for music when he was only fourteen years of age. While in Junior High School, he tried his hands, or better still his voice, on a cover of a then very popular song, ‘Illuminati’ by Sarkodie. Amazed at how good it was, he knew music was going to be a major part of his life. Even though aware of his undying connection with music and his quest to pursue it, he had to put it on hold for a period, while he prepared to sit for his final basic education examination.
He officially started his music career while in Senior High School, and his has been a display of pure talent and brilliance since. This does not however, seek to connote a notion that he has encountered no setbacks over the period. Considering how long it had been since he put music on hold, he had some challenges trying to rebirth his lyrical dexterity. Fortunately, he got necessary help from a fellow up-and-coming artist, Nathaniel, to whom he looked up. It was through Nathaniel that QuaD made his debut performance in University of Ghana, Legon. Motivated, inspired and supported by his mum, uncles, Nathaniel, Big Dee, Big.K Dj and a few colleagues in school, he was and still is determined to leave no stone unturned in his quest to chalk several successes in his musical journey.
Drawing inspiration from amazing people like Sarkodie, Kwesi Arthur, Burna Boy, Rema, Dababy, Roddy Rich, Kendrick Lamar and others, QuaD envisions a music career that brings smiles and hopes to many, while serving as a means of entertainment. He is hence, so glad about the maturity and evolvement of his music life at the tertiary level, and seeks to, in that vein, express his utmost gratitude to Faygo, Bxndit, and all Clan members, without whose support he wouldn’t have reached his present peak. It is noteworthy that in 2020, QuaD released a freestyle titled ‘Veli flow’.
On the new single, “Southside” produced by Faygo and mixed & mastered by Bxndit, QuaD seeks to give hope to anyone whose dream may be on the verge of being awakened from, and to remind them not to lose sight of their goals, but believe in themselves and work at materializing them. He does this effortlessly as he goes on to encourage everyone to support the dreams of the up-and-coming ones, and urge them to reach for higher heights.
