NII OFORI TACKIE-TETTEH (ALORDIA)

In the Ghanaian music industry, a figure such as DJ Alordia (Nii Ofori Tackie) needs no introduction. As an event producer, record label boss, music promoter and one of the most sought after DJ’s, he has affirmed himself as one of the most hard-working and major players on the scene. Alordia Promotions was founded in 2000 when DJ Alordia met Isaac Abiedu Aidoo aka Goodies, a well-respected music producer who is now his partner in Ghana. Before then, DJ Alordia was spinning the latest Ghanaian tunes on radio with his partner DJ Skoobi on Voice of Africa radio where their shows saw the pair gain the reputation of one of the most exciting and freshest DJ’s on the Ghanaian radio. This led to the duo moving on to Hot 90.00 FM radio.

In 2003, DJ Alordia won the best Radio DJ/ Presenting award at the Ghana Music Awards UK. DJ Alordia’s presence in the Ghanaian music industry soared when he obtained the European rights to significant Ghanaian music album releases.  Alordia Promotions then ventured into gospel music. As well as the record label, Alordia Promotions also encompasses live Ghanaian music events in the UK. They also have a number of DVD releases under their belt that includes the productions titled ‘Hip-Life Splash’ and ‘Hip-Life Festival’. Alordia Promotions are offering a consultancy service where they provide advice and assistance for all areas of event production and music promotion.
