There seem to be some magic working in the favour of 25-year old upcoming artiste, Nii Funny, as his newly released single, ‘Broken Heart’, is suddenly playing everywhere an attracting a lot of attention to him.
Surprisingly, the track has not had a lot of air play on mainstream radio but is very strong on the streets and has become the favourite at parties, events, and ceremonies especially in Accra.
Though the song’s original title is ‘Broken Heart’, it is more known on the streets with its hook line, ‘Yooko Ebreaki Me’, an expression in the Ga language which translates as ‘a woman has broken me’. Some also refer to the song as ‘A Woman Can Break A Man’.
“I don’t know what is working well for the song but everywhere I go, I hear people playing it and dancing to it. They do not even believe it is my song and when we tell them it is mine, they do not take me serious. We are still pushing it and when you meet ten people to give them the CD, six of them say they already have the song and the feedback is pushing us to work harder.
“It is not all that popular on radio yet but we are working hard to get there and I am not afraid of that because my manager is a media person and we have a dedicated team working hard so we are sure it is a matter of time. We are working hard and leaving the rest to God”, Nii Funny explained.
On first hearing the song, the impression one forms is that the chorus is about a woman breaking the virginity of a man. The message however is about how a in love relationship, the female partner is equally capable of breaking the heart of the male partner.
The song started gaining popularity along Accra’s coastal town of Gamashi, La, Osu, James Town, Teshi, Nungua and Tema but has suddenly spread fast to other across the capital city.
‘Broken Heart’ is becoming Nii Funny’s most popular song although he has a few other tracks including ‘Judas’, ‘Goliath’, ‘My Life’ and ‘TOTO’ in which he featured Gasmila.
