Speaking with Showbiz recently, he said the effective blend of Hip-Hop and Afro-pop to create a new synthesis of Hip-Hop is captivating and gaining more ground in this country, especially among the youth.
“The young acts of today got caught up in the frenzy of what their predecessors were doing with Dancehall. Shatta Wale fused a ‘jama beat’ into his Ghanaian Dancehall style to suit his brand and it is working well for him.
“In a similar vein, those into Hip-Hop are also injecting new stuff to keep the genre afloat,” the young artiste said.
Fareed, as he is affectionately called by his fans, presents a mixture of Afro-Pop, Hip-Hop, Hiplife and R&B which can be felt in his mid-tempo and danceable third single rendered in Hausa, Goga featuring Edem.
Though of Dagomba extraction, he speaks fluent Hausa because it is commonly spoken in his Accra New Town neighbourhood.
The song was produced by Masta Garzy with support from his team Bamba Records.
His latest single has come after one titled Alhaji which did very well on the market.
“I have been working on the Goga project for a while now. The song’s accompanying video was released weeks back.
Videos for Alhaji and my other song called Zaafi are also done, I can say it hasn’t been easy at all. It has been a marathon process of trying to find my rhythm, all geared towards my upcoming album. получить займ на карту
