The two Ghanaian powerhouses have teamed up on a compelling and thought-provoking jam that attempts to interrogate the place of the vast continent Africa in the world and addresses Africa and black power.
After a forced extended stay in the US, with his family, due to the coronavirus outbreak that caused airport shutdowns, Sarkodie has returned to his home in Ghana. The artist’s return comes with the release of one of the best releases so far, together with M.anifest, the duo trade bars speaking about how Africa is perceived by the western world through stereotypes and rampant racism, which is enabled by corruption, which is birthed by its leaders.
Sarkodie explains what it would mean to be genuinely free as an African, but in contrast, he describes how the odds have been stuck against Africa. Through all means, the ‘United States of Africa’ will always be blocked by those against its success. The artist then urges the continent to wake up. Taking from the same cue, M.anifest addresses how much corruption, pollution and greed has made the continent seek out handouts or aid from the would-be western world ‘masters’ thanks to the leaders who do not have integrity. He goes ahead to say we as Africans need to focus on ourselves.
