After a stressful 2018, which saw singer-physician Knii Lante lose close friend and road manager Nana Turkson, the musician has issued his debut offering for 2019.
A reflective piano-based ballad, the record shines light on the perennial plight of the poor in developing countries who face flooding, drowning, loss of property and often death (after sometimes relatively very minor rainfall).
Published under Deluge Entertainment, with the support of Rich & Rad, the joint also arrives as tribute to the flood victims in recent Accra floods and the victims of floods everywhere especially in the motherland (Africa ).
“Often when it begins to rain, that is the time when privileged families sleep the most in their cosy houses; that is the time when lovers cuddle together in their warm beds.
“We easily tend to forget that just across town is a different society with a different experience. Indeed, that is the time when the masses of our people have to wake and stand up in corners , bail out flood waters entering their rooms, and deal with lost property and lives,” says Knii Lante about the song. “It is time we improve housing and town planning , sanitation , waste and plastic disposal etc.”
“Really , a change in approach must start now with us the people and with government,” concludes the singer.
Ghana’s sweet-voiced musician, the singer is also author of the Blakk Rasta-assisted “#52 Ambulances”.
