  • SAY IT LOUD! The understated euphony of O.L

    When he sings, rising pop star, O.L summons the great crooners all at once: Brown, Timberlake, Antwi, Jackson. His honeyed delivery conveys a singular sensual charisma. That he arrives in the classic tall, chocolate build, and delightful smile that appeals to the fairer sex makes him the more troublesome. ...
  • STREET DISCIPLE: Kofi Mole

    In an Abelenkpe-bound Uber cab, rapper Kofi Mole who, due to his bleached dreadlocks and silvery braces, evokes a young Lil Wayne, holds his smartphone to his ear, mumbling half-finished melody over dance-ready instrumentation pouring from the phone’s speaker.

  • HANSEN: A KING Delivers on His PROMISE [album review]

    Behold, the great 2019 love album has come ashore, and, ‘as promised,’ it is singer King Promise, Ghanaian pop’s current vocal monarch, who has delivered it.

    Widely heralded as the great LYNX album following lukewarm critical appraisal of Kuami Eugene’s Rockstar, Sugar, KiDi’s debut does impress for sure, but only just.

  • HALLELUJAH! Amy Kasim shares sublime debut

    “Hallelujah,” singer Amy Kasim’s debut offering builds up gradually, gently working its way into one’s spirit till it arrives at an emphatic crescendo–yet its appeal is also immediate. Spanning nearly five minutes, the entire song—verse and hook—comprise a single word; that Hebrew call to worship that also commands greater...
