Born Eric Turkson, QWECi also known as Ded Buddy is a Ghanaian American POP / R&B / EDM Singer, Song Writer, Music Producer and Entrepreneur.

Mensah, Osibisa, Michael Jackson, Beatles, The Carpenters, Enya, Lionel Richie, Kool and the Gang, and Stevie Wonder, whom he opened for at Panafest in 1994.
When the music scene back then in Ghana needed revamping, QWECi stepped up to the plate in 1998 and created a fusion of High-Life and R&B / Soul vibes to create a new sound (AFRO R&B) for the masses making him an overnight singing sensation.
QWECi has worked with some of the worlds greats including Junior Reid on his song ‘One Love’, Grady Spivey (Ruff Ryder), Hardy ‘Indiigo’ Muanza (Producer for Madonna), DIDEIR AWADI, J Martins, Kns Tha Engineer, Fiumi (Switzerland) on the song ‘Anthem’ that topped the itunes EDM/DANCE chart for 10 weeks.
Whilst releasing much anticipated music, QWECi is also putting together his Pop/EDM songs for the trending markets as well as an upcoming EP. His goal is to reach the entire world by creating that "feel good music” that everyone can relate to and sing along. His work continues.
