Sketchy – Friday Night (Ft. Koo Sebor & Kofi Jamar) (Prod. by S.S.K)

In most countries, especially Ghana, Friday night is time for relaxation, and dealing with the stress that one faced throughout the week. To make this precious moment solid, it’s necessary that we sing along to a common tune. And that’s what Sketchy brings to the table. The story of “Friday Night” starts when Y FM presenter (co-host of Dryve of Your Lyf) Koo Sebor alerts Sketchy how they lack cash although they still want to pop bottles and have fun. On a nostalgic 90s Hip-Hop/R&B instrumental produced by S.S.K, Sketchy lays smooth flows, detailing how he makes Friday night special, and assuring that the drinks are on him. Kofi Jamar comes through with the most befitting hook with his silky voice. From the camp of BKC music, we present to you this classic.

Rich Miller Delves Deep Into His “NDILIDI” Album Art

Hardworking and talented musician Rich Miller is more concerned about feeding his listeners with full body of works than singles. He’s the type of artiste that likes engaging his audience with interesting conversations in the form of soulful yet invigorating rap music. His previous instalment “The Steppin” caught the attention of rap lovers.

After making trends with singles like “Ride With Me”, Rich Miller is here with another body of work which bears the title of his favourite catch statement, “Nobody Do It Like I Do It”, abbreviated as “NDILIDI.” The wordsmith took time to explain the concept behind the artwork of his album.

The white nature or colour of the album signifies truth and victory at same time.

RichMiller’s face in the picture depicts consciousness that runs through the songs on the album. E.g., Depression, Relax, Lord forgive me, etc.

The dairy with the pen literary means he wrote reality or daily life activities and made it music.

The clock beside him which didn’t fully appear clarifies that his time to take over is now coming.

His legs are in white socks and up on the chair to establish a point that he’s not stepping down now as a king or a leader of a new generation.

The back cover artwork has his t-shirt down with the inscription “NOBODY DO IT LIKE I DO IT” which has been abbreviated as NDILIDI.

“NDILIDI” is an 8-track EP which features Hotboy DNA, Toff Dawg and Tina, with post-production handled by 1Kwame, and some beats produced by Krizick and Phredxter. The EP is set for release on Friday, 8th December, 2017.

5 Crucial Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Skip Breakfast

By: Joseph ‘Aqweci’ Ofori

“Breakfast is bae” says a school of thought. The other school of thought doesn’t see any problem with skipping breakfast. The latter usually ask the rhetoric, “What is breakfast?” Well, in a sarcastic reply, breakfast is the first meal taken in a day, thus in the morning.

People skip breakfast usually because of busy morning schedules. Some jobs don’t create space for you enjoy your breakfast in peace. Queuing in traffic each morning to make work is no joke. It gives one no time to enjoy a breakfast, hence people make it a habit.

Culture influences everything, and breakfast is no exception. In some parts of the world, making a breakfast is shorter than a quickie. It’s light, and doesn’t guarantee filling up your belly. In our beloved country Ghana, every meal is expected to make us full. In the journey of life as a typical Ghanaian, at least, for once someone will pose the question “is tea too considered food?” to you. This conception makes people see having breakfast to be a time consuming process, because after eating flakes, he/she shall crave for another meal.

Skipping breakfast can have its own demerits. Either of the two schools of thought can win a debate any day once this topic is raised. Let’s walk through 5 critical key points why one shouldn’t miss breakfast.

  1. To Acquire Energy: We’re advised of eating early to enhance complete digestion and metabolism. After enjoying a delicious supper, thus around 6 or 7 pm, one deprives the body of food for about 13-14 hours. Skipping a breakfast means expanding the body deprivation to adaptive levels. Our body constantly needs glucose. Hence it stores excess glucose in the form of glycogen. After all the barns of glycogen are also used up, fats are converted to glucose, a process called ketosis, which may result in unfavourable conditions.
  2. To Prevent Fainting: Speaking to Dietitian Stanley Ofosu Quansah, he made it clear that the average Ghanaian seeks curative care rather than preventive. Hence if one is diabetic, he/she may not know. “If a diabetic skips breakfast, his/her blood glucose level can be decreased to as little as 1 mmol/l. This can result in feeling unconscious and fainting.” explains Stanley.
  3. To Gain Enough Fuel for Daily Acitvities: The brain uses up 70% of all the glucose we take. We can all agree that in the morning we engage our minds a lot in various activities. So how can denying your body of it help you in this way? Stanley emphasizes a favourite catch statement of a dietitian which goes like “in the morning, eat like a queen. In the afternoon, eat like a king. And in the evening, eat like a slave.” They say this because according to the circadian rhythm (regular 24-hour cycle), human beings are naturally active in the day. Therefore you’d need to eat well during breakfast and lunch, and enjoy a light-weight meal as supper because in the night when you’re asleep, metabolism is quite dormant.
  4. To Prevent Unwanted Gain of Weight: Science reveals that if you continue depriving your body of breakfast, you store a lot of cholesterol or fat, making one gain unnecessary weight. Most of the time people apply the untrue logic that if you starve yourself you lose more weight. The actual fact is the other way round. If you want to continue being the slay mama or the fly guy with 6 packs you’re identified with, then you might not want to play games with your breakfast.
  5. To Prevent Mouth Odour: On a lighter note, one experiences mouth odour in the morning. One way of saving your breath is taking breakfast with a good scent appeal. People usually think once you brush your teeth you’re safe and clean of all sorts of mouth odour. But as you starve you produce a lot of saliva which you may be tempted to wipe your dry mouth with it, to keep it moist, promoting bad odour. Have you realized keeping your mouth shut for a long time promotes bad breath? Take your breakfast and stay active and fresh throughout the day.

After gaining this insight I trust I can easily guess the school of thought you’re with now. Breakfast is quite essential. If it takes skipping mountains and maneuvering valleys to get it, I advise you do it. You don’t need fufuo or waakye to call it breakfast. Porridge, oats, corn flakes, tom brown, semolina, and such light meals are good breakfast meals that are easy to prepare. Now in your subsequent mornings when you’re about to have your palatable breakfast, crack a smile and remember this article.
