Desmond Agyemang is my name but I go by the pseudonym De Gem. I am a teaching assistant, a rapper and an avid reader and writer.
As an independent underground musician I have a couple of singles but no album to my credit. However, I have put one together. It's a hip hop E.P and I plan to release it by January next year , but I can't do so without your kind help. Music without promotion and distribution is waste. Promotion is everything in music. As for the production I have sorted part of the cost with my sound engineer and will need $500 to cover the additional cost. I have estimated $1000 for getting my music onto distribution platforms (Apple Music, Tidal, Kanjian, Deezer, Pandora, etc.), getting copyrights for them, strong promotion and creation of my first video. It took more than a year to put this 5-track E.P together and without you it will be a dormant project. You can stream one of the songs via this link track: https://archive.org/details/okay-degem
Secondly, I wrote a book on world leading producers of commodities and elements after I completed high school. I submitted to some renowned publishing companies including Xlibris but I couldn't afford the cost of publishing and the book has been dormant since. I intend to use the remaining $800 for publishing the book also at the beginning of next year. Your support is truly appreciated and definitely won't be forgotten. Thank you.
