AYAT – Stages
Ayat has been breathing fire all year. From guest features, video releases and performing at almost every event, the “GUDA” hitmaker isn’t slowing down.
“Stages”, a collaborative effort with GroundUp is his latest output. A fiery delivery meet a trap sound has the Madina boy cautioning all not to push him: woke up annoyed so don’t get me worked up, he bellows on the song. The video illustrate Ayat’s missive more succinctly: the donations, tigers, fires, a drowning man confirms his state of mind. The likes of Akan, Twisted Wavex, Daney Eli King make an appearance in the video.
Kwadjo SPiRi – Benz
Kwadjo SPiRi is among the few artists keeping hip hop alive in Ghana. Infusing samples with speaker wrecking drum and bass and lyrics that are full of ‘positive affirmations’.
“Benz”, his recent single reflect these hip-hop elements. SPiRi brings good tidings to the listener, reminding them to forge ahead in life: work towards buying that ‘benz’. (Benz is employed as metaphor for success). The rapper also reflect on his own choices, like quitting his job to pursue his passion on the song.
