If there’s anything clear about the bromance between afro-pop act, Fuse ODG and British pop star Ed Sheeran, it’s one of unfiltered attraction. They both feel very comfortable around each other.
That bromance is evident on ‘Boa Me’, the latest video by Fuse ODG featuring Ed Sheeran and Mugeez (of R2Bees). The video offers a snapshot into the good time the two had while on a visit to Ghana- from enjoying the love from the street, visiting a cocoa farm and the well famous Kantamanto market.
Ed’s visit was indeed a jolly one as his recount of events of his time in Ghana during interviews suggest-from drinking the liquor Shocker to eating waakye. I bet to say Ed is one of the few celebs who really enjoyed the ‘Ghana life’ during his few weeks stay in the country.
The song, ‘Boa Me’ which translate as ‘Help Me’ has both artists calling on people to offer them a helping hand in their times of need. What’s indeed remarkable is hearing Ed Sheeran singing part of the song in Twi (one of the widely spoken languages in Ghana). It’s not the first time Ed Sheeran had sung in Twi. On his album “Divide”, he not only sang in Twi but named the last song on the album ‘Bebia Be Ye Yie’ a twi phrase meaning ‘Everything Shall Be Well’. (Somebody get Ed Sheeran a Ghana passport).
Although the song is a personal plea, the cry for help resonates with the sad experiences of many people across the world, especially those caught up in political upheavals- from the Royingha Moslems of Myammar, the immigrants trapped in Libya and the bombing going on in Yemen and Somalia.
‘Boa Me’ is another addition to the growing catalog of Fuse ODG, who has been shooting visually appealing, ‘go-happy’ videos, as seen in ‘No Daylight’, featuring people of various creed dancing in the streets of London.
