Analysis of the Christian account of creation by some scholars reveal that Adam failed to communicate well with his rib-created partner, Eve, when she convinced him to take the fruit. Great communication makes kings. Poor communication exterminates prosperity. A lot of great inventions that have been made since civilization are geared towards enhancement of communication — petroglyphs, pictograms, hieroglyphs, down to phone calls, Skype, WhatsApp, and reducing chats to 6 seconds snaps. This shows the power in communication. A great deal of relationships have ended up on rocks due to poor communication, but who’s counting?
Virtuosic singer and songwriter, Offei chooses to discuss this topic in his next single “Communication”. In two verses interspersed with a chorus, the “Let It Go” composer paints the picture of a modern day relationship in which a partner doesn’t see the need to freely discuss certain issues such as dislikes and wants, but expects the other to know. Offei believes that inasmuch as one is able to read minds, conversations about these issues are key in making a relationship as firm as igneous. Ace music producer, Paq provides an impeccable instrumentation for this mid-tempo Afropop classic, with heavy bass, melodic keys and refreshing guitar fills. Offei’s musical imagery is solidified with “Communication.” Good music has come to stay!
