Meiway, aka Fréderic-Désiré Ehui, leaves Abidjan for Paris in 1985 to improve his music skills. He records his first album “Ayibebou” in 1989 including the premises of Zoblazo, a style Meiway invented inspired from traditional rhythms from Grand-Bassam, his native city. Meiway receives the award for Best Male Singer of Ivory Coast for this album but it is with the following album “200% Zoblazo”, released in 1992, that Meiway gets his first hit in the African diaspora.
Throughout the years, his success increases following inflation to reach 900% Zoblazo with the eponymous album released in 2006. Meiway has become a superstar in Ivory Coast, Western Africa and in the African diaspora in Europe.
“M20” is his 10th album, a record celebrating his 20 years of career – 17 tracks still offering the glowing rhythm section known as Meiway’s stamp.
