D-Black Finally Releases Hiphop E.P ‘Smoke & Mirrors’

Published

on

One of Ghana’s formidable music forces, D-Black, after a long hiatus, had finally dropped his highly anticipated E.P ‘Smoke & Mirrors’ today Friday 21st June 2019. Available on all platforms now ‘Smoke & Mirrors’ streamed exclusively on Aftown and Youtube apps 5 days ahead of its release today.

The award-winning rapper accompanies the E.P release with the first music video / single off it ‘Heaven or Hell’ featuring Sefa :

The seven-track EP titled ‘Smoke & Mirrors’ features soon to be everyone’s favourite track list which features talented acts like Bisa Kdei, Kelvyn Boy, Sefa, Sista Afia and others.

D-Black releases the E.P before his highly anticipated fourth studio album ‘Loyalty’ and after a press soiree at the offices of the Black Avenue Muzik Group on Thursday night with Ghana’s press / media creme de la creme D-Black commenting on the EP, D-Black said ‘Smoke & Mirrors’ was inspired by his journey in the music industry.

“‘Smoke & Mirrors’ essentially means nothing is as it seems. The smoke blurs your vision and the mirrors are a reflection and not always reality. This EP is 90% Hip-hop and was inspired by my nine-year journey and where I am today. All I learnt coming up from 2010 till now. Had to take it back to the roots, Hip-hop,” he said.

The ‘Heaven or Hell’ record was written in a car enroute Kumasi for Sefa’s first promo run. I started playing beats for my E.P on the car speakers and started writing after we had seen an accident on the Accra – Kumasi road. Thoughts just kept swirling round in my head so then i asked Sefa to write a hook as well to this concept of ‘Heaven or Hell’. Two days later when we got to Accra we went straight to the studio to record it, D-Black said speaking on the inspiration behind the first single.

Touching on ‘Tha Bounce’, the second track off the EP, he said: “The Bounce was inspired by a Jay Z record we were vibing to in the studio at home and watching Ryan Leslie’s productions sessions myself, Rony Turn Me Up and DJ Breezy whilst we were working on the album. I wrote some lines on my phone and before we knew it I’d recorded the full track. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did making it.”

Published

on

German-based Ghanaian Gospel sensational, Daniel Jeddman christened Daniel Adu-Boahene has announced his intentions of spicing up, both local and international Gospel market with his yet to be released Christian tune dub "Grace", which features Sylvia Boakye.

Speaking on the motivation behind "Your Grace" tune, Jeddman revealed that, despite the thick, and torn journey he's embark on, the perplexities and turmoil of life, God's able to elevate him to an excelling adventure. This he believes must have being the divine grace of the Almighty God.

The Ghanaian gospel artiste added that, he strongly believe that without the Grace of God, nothing is possible. He explained that, Grace in natural senses means something you don’t deserve, merit, don’t qualify to receive but yet, a high deity, a greater existence grants you free of charge.

He revealed that, everyone alive today is graced to be alive because they don’t bug oxygen nor carbon dioxide, yet they breathe in and out everyday, go through their daily activities and still make it home. Reiterating his submission with a quotation from the Bible - 1 Thessalonians 5:18, "that whether good times or bad times we should give thanks to God."

Your Grace was recorded on the 19th October, 2019, and features Sylvia Boakye (a Ghanaian who resides in Hamburg, Germany and a member of PIWC) because she was the perfect lady who fitted for the song as directed by God.

According him, Sylvia has something unique in her voice and also very determined and humble to make it in her music career, that makes it an opportunity to help someone recognize her talent and skills regarding music and most importantly the things of God to save and inspire lives.

The song will be released on all digital platforms (iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, Deezer etc.) on Sunday, 24th November, 2019.

Kweku Afro Drops New Super Funky Piece Featuring Darkovibes.

Published

on

The last month of 2019 will soon be upon us and Kweku Afro wants it to be a vibe-filled one. Titled 'Party Papa', a follow up to 'Monalisa', Kweku's message is pretty clear on this one: he's the PARTY PAPA!

The song, like its title has a party theme to it. Kweku Afro supposedly meets a damsel at a party and gets all braggadocio in hopes of wooing her - ''Anything you want make you say am, you know say me I go do am'', he continually says, promising luxury of all sorts. He then urges the girl not to be on a long thing and come closer so they dance it out with the phrase, ''Baby viens ons va dancer. Ils faut pas fais comme ce comme ça''.

Kweku Afro rides with a Anglo-Francophone type of vibe on this one; oozing a Nigerian style as well as dropping some catchy French lines in the course of the song. This gives the piece a unique feel and puts it in perfect sync with the super groovy beat produced by Nigeria's JaySynths Beatz and Maestro who helped with co-production.

Darkovibes comes through as Kweku's wingman on this one. He blends in perfectly with the theme and arguably has to be the best pick for the song. As expected, he drops those punchy Ga lines we've all come to love, very so cleanly that even the girl in question gives in with a salute.

'Party Papa' serves as a follow up to Kweku's debut well-received single 'Monalisa'; which is currently the number one song on Live FM Top 10 Most Played chart. He ended Sarkodie's four-week consecutive run at the top of the chart to set the record.

Signed to Twist Entertainment Legacy, Kweku Afro is one to look out for in these last weeks of 2019. 'Party Papa' has some good replay value and will have you singing along in no time. Listen, be sociable and share.
