To many people on campus, he is known as Ebenezer Yebuah, Residence Life hall director of Willard Hall and Reed Hall. But to many others, he is known by his stage name Mawule and his song "Mirror Mirror," which recently landed in the top 10 of Channel 93.3's Hometown for the Holidays Music Survey.
As hall director, Yebuah works with his staff to ensure a positive living and learning experience for students living in the residence halls.
Born and raised in Accra, Ghana, music has always been an important part of his life, Yebuah said. As a child he was active in gospel choirs, and that coninues to inform his writing today. Following his family's move to the United States, he self-produced an album and then took a break from music to focus on his university studies. He says he soon realized that life without music wasn't an option.
With help from his father, he arrived at the stage name Mawule, which means "only God knows" to the Ewe tribe of his native Ghana. Working with The Spot Studios in Lakewood, he released his first EP, "Reflections" in July 2014. He is currently working on his first professional album "Chosen," which is set to release on June 3, 2016.
