The much anticipated new single from Ghana’s Yaa Pono is finally here – “Amen!” The song is inspired by his recent performance at “Felabration 2013” at Lagos’ New Shrine as one of Pidgen Music’s Ghanaian contingent. “Amen” contains elements of chants heard from the Shrine’s audience which serve as a fitting tribute to the Pioneer and King of Afrobeat, Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Pono was especially moved by Fela’s positive and proactive message to the World, and also the hustle of African life; to encourage us to remain determined and hard work toward goals in order to reach them.
“Amen” showcases the unique versatility of the 2011 Ghana Music Award nominated music artist, who is primarily know for his hip hop roots. However, he can also draw on the experience of writing a large back catalogue of strong material that includes dancehall, rock and house music.
