Ghanaian highlife musician Kwabena Kwabena has lent his musical prowess to the Showmax Original drama, The Billionaire’s Wife, creating an original score for the show that has become the most-watched title in history on Showmax in Ghana. The 10-episode series features newcomer Andriana Akua Amegbor in the lead role of Adepa, a young woman who must navigate the complexities of a marriage to an old billionaire. Kwabena created the show’s original score, which has added an additional layer of emotion and depth to the already gripping drama.

Kwabena’s involvement in The Billionaire’s Wife was recommended by a friend, and the legendary musician leaped at the opportunity to work on the project. He worked on the production for four weeks, reading the scripts several times to get a sense of the emotions of the story and the characters. He then used this knowledge to create a unique score that enhances the show’s drama and excitement.

This isn’t Kwabena’s first foray into film and TV scoring – three of his songs were featured in Shirley Frimpong-Manso’s 2009 film The Perfect Picture, and he collaborated with Falz and Basketmouth on the soundtrack for the Showmax Original comedy drama Ghana Jollof in 2021. However, The Billionaire’s Wife is the first production for which Kwabena created an original score from scratch.

Creating a soundtrack for a TV show is different from creating an album, as Kwabena explains: “Movie or TV soundtracks are much simpler since there is a script to guide you. However, with albums, one needs to imagine the title and theme of the project, among other things.” This made scoring The Billionaire’s Wife a particularly exciting challenge for him.

For the most part, Kwabena’s work on The Billionaire’s Wife has been a resounding success, and the show’s popularity in Ghana is a testament to the quality of his work. This is only the beginning of his foray into TV and film scoring, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store for us in the future.

Fans can watch all 10 episodes of The Billionaire’s Wife on Showmax now.
