After the great Osibisa band which told the African story across the world, people have been searching for the next band to continue with the legacy.

Some music lovers who listen to the afro-rock band Faint Medal perform, believe that the band is the next generation of Osibisa.

Faint medal, an afro-rock band formed by singer and song writer Syn, and the incredibly gifted guitarist Kyekyeku. Both individuals are well noted musicians emerging from the alternative music scene in Accra having mounted the same stages all over the city and internationally.

The deep appreciation for one another's musical art and the very evident passion that both musicians employ in their individual creative processes made them a menacing artistic duo.

Their sound is greatly influenced by a lot of rock music interlaced with rich African melodies influenced by great musicians like Agya Koo Nimo and Osibisa with a potent mix of rich Pidgen English lyrics. This new blend has seen crowds of music lovers go ballistic as they catch on to the easy melodies and interesting lyrics in just a few seconds.

The group has since its inception played various events and venues including the maiden edition of 'La Poilette Takpekpe' at the Alliance Francaise in Accra, Reggie Rockstone's Office, The Movenpic hotel in Accra, Marvel's mini golf course and Indie Fuse, a musical concert organized by ace events producer Accra (dot) alt amongst others.
