Praye

Agya Koo - Ghanaian films (movies) are back!

...Sounds on da ground and seens on the see-ins

When I first heard about the 'Ka wo nan to so' movie, the first thing that came to my mind was Okomfour Kwaadee's song of the same name. It warmed my heart to think that the work of hiplife artistes was making its way into the film and movie industry. Once I got to Ghana and saw the many flyers and posters for Ghanaian movies, I had to watch 'Ka wo nan to so' to satisfy my curiosity. The soundtrack was not Kwaadee's 2006 hit and I discovered something else - Agya Koo. He's not exactly the one Praye sings about in their Agya Koo song either. Meet Kofi Adu, the guy leading the surge of Ghanaian films getting back on the market.


Jacket - what you come back for, the Diasporean Ghanaian

...Sounds on da ground and seens on the see-ins

One of the songs my cousin used to sing frequently when I was in Ghana last Christmas was Jacket by Praye (wOama yEayi me jacket). I got hooked onto the song for a bit, but I only started listening to it a lot when I came back to the USA. There's this line that is now synonymous with the song, 'What you come back for'. A lot of my friends in Ghana constanly ask me when I would be returning to Ghana, for good. I have thought about this question many times but when I have to give a response, I am not articulate aout it. So really, why haven't I gone back to Ghana already and what's stopping me?


Efie ne fie - Home Sweet Home

I was 'shiing imprÉ›' (dozing off) in my international development class as a result of inadequate sleep. When my lecturer mentioned, "now, we shall see a movie about manufacturing in Ghana", I became wide awake. The movie was rolled with highlife playing in the background, and my mind tuned to the memories of riding around Kumasi and hearing Paapa Yankson's music blare through music shops' speakers. Home is where the heart is - Efie ne fie aka Home sweet home.
