There are people who are born to sing. And with each passing moment, they get drawn towards that destiny. Be it the gift of a singing voice, the people they encounter in life, the opportunities that fall their path, they consistently – sometimes unconsciously – push towards that destiny. At a point, the passion to be an artist who brings inspiration and excitement to people becomes a vehicle towards fulfilling one’s destiny.

For many, the name TiTi Owusu may not immediately ring a bell. However, her voice might have been heard by some. The bubbly singer has contributed vocals on Beauty, Nice and Sunshine; records by hip hop rapper/music producer and entrepreneur Jayso.

TiTi Owusu’s musical journey began at an early age when she used to accompany her grandmother to church. The church became the place where she cut her teeth as a singer. Even though she loved to sing, she never knew those times singing her heart out in the auditorium of a Church of Pentecost branch in Ghana was her preparatory years towards a career in show business.

The church was not the only place that offered the Accra-born singer the opportunity to develop and showcase her vocal talents. Parties and weddings organized by her neighbors served as a talent grooming grounds for her.

Although TiTi Owusu knew she had the talent, it was not until her Senior High School days that she consciously decided to inject a sense of seriousness to developing her musical talent. The former student of Ghana Secondary School in the Eastern region would win the Best Female Singer/Rapper accolade in 2014. Such an accolade was not the first in her life. TiTi Owusu, as a primary school student, won a scholarship thanks to her musical ability from the age of nine till she was 14.

On what music means to her, the talented singer was unequivocal in her response: “Music means everything to me, I don’t see myself living without it. I knew music was for me when I started picturing myself on big stages back in Junior High School, I’ve had visions and day dreams of myself singing my heart out on worldwide stages.”

In 2014, she would emerge first runner-up in the music reality television show, Vodafone Icons. Her outstanding display during the course of the television show, not only validated her musical gifts, but also endeared her to some of the best music producers including Jayso, whom she has worked with since.

TiTi Owusu is finally ready to step into the hallowed world of music after spending years developing her talent and recording music under the gaze of Jayso. TiTi Owusu is currently signed to UK-based Skillions Global, an independent label, talent management and media group.

On 13th December, 2019, the amazing singer/songwriter would release her debut single titled, Karma, featuring veteran female rapper/singer Itz Tiffany. A “girl power” song, the artwork for the single is inspired by Rosie Riveter, the woman who became the face of working women during World War II.

Armed with a mellifluous voice, an impressive presence, years of development as an artist and surrounded by a team of talented individuals with years of experience in the industry, TiTi Owusu is here for the long haul rather than a quick dip.

Download and listen to her latest single, Pray for Me (Feat. Moelogo) here.
