M.anifest is one rapper who keeps it one-hunid everytime he spits a verse. His delivery is very smooth and he isn’t afraid to flaunt his Ghanaian ethnicity in his lyrics. My kinda rapper.
Peep this joint “Chale What Dey Happen” along with a solid video to match.
“Ghanaian superstar rapper M.anifest has released a new video for the single “Blue (Chale what dey happen).” The video which was shot on location in Saltpond and Accra tells a story of longing and nostalgia inspired by living away from home. The video shows M.anifest in soliloquy whiles his mind travels to many childhood memories that remind him of home. From longing for kelewele, beans, gari (foods readily available on the streets of Accra) to girls shaking their “wele,” “Blue” shows a man journeying through time, torn between melancholy and fond remembrance.“Blue” (Chale what dey happen) is also a throwback to M.anifest’s adolescent years but perhaps more importantly a historical document of the cultural shifts that hiplife/ rap spawned in the 90s. In the 3rd verse you hear and see images that serve as a reflection on the beginnings of a new wave of contemporary Ghanaian pop/hiplife music.The video was filmed and directed by WA Productions (Nigeria/Minneapolis) and edited by LOVECINÉ FILMS (South Africa) The song was produced by M.anifest’s longtime collaborator G Mo, who also produced the rapper’s latest single ‘Gh Baby’ featuring E.L & Efya. Blue (Chale What Dey Happen) is available on M.anifest’s latest album “Immigrant Chronicles: Coming to America” currently in stores and on itunes.”
