Ghanaian 🇬🇭🇬🇭hip-hop icon, Sarkodie drops his new single: “Black Excellence (Ebibi Man)”. The song is produced by Nova. This song tells his intriguing story as an African man who has seen poverty but now enjoys great wealth. The song is a medium to share his wisdom with the youth of Africa concerning pathways to achieve black excellence. Sarkodie cries out to the mentally enslaved ones to liberate themselves; and stop regarding everything from the western world as being superior or moral. He also raps about the ignorance of the average African youth. He speaks about how they squander their earnings on worthless things rather than on investments to better themselves and their communities. He stresses on the point that most of the poor decisions made by the youths of Africa today, are based on what the media has fed to them and the unfortunate examples given by the older generation. He also zeroes in on the unfortunate effects of peer pressure which lead the youth to seek a sense of belonging in order to be considered “cool kids”.
On the song Sarkodie samples a speech from Ghanaian president, Nana Akufo-Addo who in a joint talk with the French president was rather outspoken about his views concerning Africa and its journey to a brighter future.
“...Our responsibility is to charter a path which is about how we can develop our nations our selves”. - President Nana Akufo-Addo.
