Audio: Shadow "Killing Me”


Akwaaba Music founder Ben Lebrave is on the ground in Ghana, and has a new column for Fader Magazine, entitled "Lungu Lungu." This is defiantly something to keep an eye on in the world of African music, specifically because it's straight from the source, so we imagine he will be posting a lot of ground breaking content. His latest post comes from a Liberian refugee camp called Buduburam based in Ghana, near the capital Accra. This post spotlights the Liberian refugee musician and scene starter Shadow.
