Dzidu delivers verses 1 & 2 in Twi and Ewe, while JJ Gonami hands us the chorus in Ewe, adding some diversity to the song.

Setor – “Know”

Setor on single; “Know is really just words on a beat, but then I didn’t want it to sound like every rap song you’ve heard, and I like to think weird abstract thoughts hence the talking aspect, the sing-along bit, however, makes you question the relationships you have, whether they would last or your people would let you go. In the end, it’s just a song I wrote one night around the ungodly hours because I had watched some freestyle and I was inspired. Ungodly or odd hours brings the best of the creativity in us and ‘know’ by Setor is one of them.”

WonderKid featuring Terminator – “Sunday”

In a typical Sunday service, the norm is to pay attention to teachings, worship, praise and pray to your maker but these days I mean not in the COVID days but lately the youth of today have a whole different agenda when they go to church, I can list 1000 of them but WonderKid tells us more about it in his new song ‘Sunday’ featuring Terminator, listen take notes and change your ways.

Peerayce – RENAISSANCE AN EXPRESSION

Renaissance, a 6 tracks expression represents the culmination, at this point in time, of passive and active exposure to, and immersion in diverse art forms, influences, philosophies and thought patterns from a range of distinct genres and eras; 80’s,90’s & 2000’s Soul, TrapSoul, Neo-Soul and contemporary RnB. Peerayce worked towards evoking the longing for things deeply desired but only just slightly out of reach, tantalizingly so. 

In these times where brevity is preferred/treasured, what has been executed in this instance of creation can be summed up a single word, nostalgia. Renaissance is (an experience) fuelled by introspection, examining experiences, mental and emotional processes; parsing things, dissecting, working towards rebirth and a fresh start.
