Ebony Drops Potential Christmas Banger “Hustle” Featuring Brella

Since Ebony’s publicity team announced that she has 2 bangers coming up which are potential Christmas hits, ears have been on the ground to hear what the 90s bad girl has for us. The “Sponsor” hitmaker doesn’t disappoint as she gives us “Hustle” which features musician, Brella. Ebony sings about grinding to make both ends meet. It’s a struggle in the streets, so it’s only for Ebony to serve us with motivation. The most interesting part of the song is where she plays on words [again], saying “Mo ndi me oooh, mo ndi me dwa.” Listening to that statement alone may make you draw a conclusion that she’s being profane. But it’s actually Ebony pleading with customers/consumers to buy her items, since she puts up the personality of a trader in the song. the fast tempo Afropop song was produced by Danny Beatz. This is a potential hit!

After a successful commercial single with Joey B, the singer drops another one to end his silence, titled “Santorini.” Santorini is one of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea. It was devastated by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century BC, forever shaping its rugged landscape. The whitewashed, cubiform houses of its 2 principal towns, Fira and Oia, cling to cliffs above an underwater caldera (crater). Jay shine plans to take his dream girl there to let her have an experience she has never had in her life. Production was handled ace producer, Paq.

Broni Ft. Sarkodie – Ekomedeme (Remix) (Prod. by DJ Kwamzy)

There are songs which become hits off the internet. “Ekomedeme” happens to be one of them. The song which had massive social appeal caught the attention of Ghana’s most decorated musician, Sarkodie. Hence he laid a verse on the Afropop instrumental for a remix. In fact, before hearing the song I thought Broni was a rapper, just to plug in an earpiece and realize he’s a young man who lays sweet vocals. “Ekomedeme” literally translates to English as “I am hungry.” Broni sings about how people may be going hungry, literally, discussing poverty (a topic which most musicians don’t like to touch). You know how Sarkodie gets emotional with a topic like this, right? He goes in like none other. DJ Kwamzy laid the instrumental whilst Laxio handled post production.

Fuse ODG – Boa Me (Ft. Ed Sheeran & Mugeez) (Prod. by Killbeatz)

When I saw the tweet about the release of this song, I went totally bonkers. I mean when you have Fuse ODG, Ed Sheeran and Mugeez on one song, of course, it’d be extremely fire. With Ed Sheeran on the chorus singing Twi, and Killbeatz on the instrumental, words cannot describe the perfection of this song. “Boa Me” means “help me.” What I like about the song is the positive message it carries. They sing about how God has lifted them and ask for more help.
