Afro Electronic Dance Music is a steady growing genre on the Ghanaian music space. And one of the artist helping push this front is Papa Chie.
‘Boss’ is the latest addition to his growing music catalog. Produced by regular collaborator Kayso, the song’s two verses detail what defines a boss, from both the male and female perspectives.
‘Make them know/ Na you wey dey call the shots’, Papa Chie sings over the taut guitar synths and drum heavy beat. His strong vocals envelopes the beat adequately. The song carries all the trappings of EDM: the ever winding string, fast paced, rising drums and the unmistakable beat drop. But, one can’t miss the African rhythms present in the overall production.
Papa Chie has a lot going on as far as his career goes. He outlines his plans in an email:
I am re-releasing my EP ‘Mystic Cloth’ with two bonus songs. I know a lot of the new generation haven’t had a feel of it. Then follow up with my collaborative Afro- Electro project with producer Afrolecktra. The release an album, solely house music titled ‘House Feels’‘
