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.
