They shared a special bond as friends while growing up and musician Inusah Dawuda and esteemed journalist, Francis Kokutse, continue to express that bond through their creative skills.
The duo first showcased their creative abilities together when Francis tested his skills as a songwriter on the song, True Love, in 2015 and it was good. And they are back again with a new song called Hold My Hands.
Produced by Dery Korbieh Bushbeatz, Hold My Hands talks about how humanity must show love and support one another.
The deep lyrics of the song written by Francis Kokutse brings to fore the writing abilities of the former Ghanaian Times journalist whose forte has been on Science and Agriculture.

Despite songwriting being a new venture for Kokutse, the message and choice of words in Hold My Hands is a plus to his capabilities.
A Ghanaian-German Afro musician, Inusah Dawuda, has been plying his music in Germany where he has attained considerable fame for his talent.
It is, however, a yearning for him to get his music and brand popular in Ghana and that is why he has intensified the promotions of Hold My Hands.
“I have done enough in Germany and think it is time for me to promote my works in Ghana.
“Thankfully, I have the support of my good friend and brother, Francis Kokutse as a songwriter and I know music audiences will love it,” he stated.
Francis Kokutse started his career with the Ghanaian Times before moving to London to work as the UK Correspondent for the now defunct African Concord/Africa Economic Digest.
He has also worked as Ghana Correspondent for the Inter Press Service.
According to him, he would be giving much attention to songwriting since making impact with his works had always been a main concern.
“This is a new venture but as a journalist, songwriting is not so different since I’m also good at creative writing,” he stated.
