ELi A Free Partners with UK-Based Ghanaian Artist Bryte On ‘’Sebetutu’’ (A Most Ghanaian Song)

“Sebetutu (A Most Ghanaian Song)” is a sonically lush and socially conscious Afrobeat song (riddled with an undertone of Hip-life accent) inspired by the past, but crafted for the present and future Ghanaian. This song speaks to the reality of life in Ghana after the YEAR OF RETURN celebrations which brought back millions of Africans to our coast in search of their roots and identity

 “Sebetutu (A Most Ghanaian Song)” is mixed and mastered by the ever-talented Rvdical the Kid. The title of the the song is snatched from Samson Kwame Oppong‘s sobriquet; Sèbètutu, which means “destroyer of native charms or personal deities.”

“Sebetutu (A Most Ghanaian Song)” is a metaphor, an ideology, a state of mind, or even a movement— a mental renaissance. “Sebetutu (A Most Ghanaian Song)” admonishes Ghanaians not to “destroy their native charms”: thus we shouldn’t destroy what we have/own, we should learn to value and make use of our resources so we don’t go begging the west for financial aid. The main ideology of the song is: change of mindset and attitude towards our country. And the song conveyed that beautifully and effortlessly

ELi A Free is a Ghanaian alternative singer-songwriter who creates honest music with an experimental demand.  Taking his musical inspiration from the messages and struggle of Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, Osibisa, Ebo Taylor, Nina Simone and Benjamin Clementine. He first debuted his brand of music to the world in 2013 when his song “The Devil Is In The Detail” featured in the Fader.  He has since continued offering an introspective blend of Soul, Jazz, mellow Highlife and smooth Afrobeat vibes. His musical experiment of genre-hopping, emotive, poetic and personal opus aims at finding his Higher Self abundantly delivering messages of love, hope and inspiration.  In a world where attention-seeking music rules artists like ELi A Free are rare to find and precious to come across.

Since winning the Africa Unsigned talent search in 2012, Bryte has established himself as one of the most exciting voices coming out of Ghana in recent times. He has developed a global following due to his unique fusion of afrobeats, rap, funky and experimental club sounds. Bryte has collaborated with local artists such as Gafacci and FOKN Bois, as well as two tracks with the UK artist Mina, both of which have received international radio play on Radio 1, Beats 1 and 1Xtra. His cult underground club hit “I Like Your Girlfriend” was released on Ransom Note Records in 2016 and has been supported by tastemakers such as Bok Bok & Mixpak, making history as the first azonto record released on vinyl. His highly anticipated 9 track mixtape is due for release in July 2018 on More Time Records, featuring a roster of forward thinking producers, further confirming Bryte’s status as one of Ghana’s most electrifying rising talent.
