DJ Juls Shares 'Gidigidi' Featuring FOKN Bois' M3NSA And Pappy Kojo

UK-based Ghanaian producer DJ Juls releases the mellow 'Gidigidi' featuring FOKN Bois rapper M3NSA and Pappy Kojo.


UK-based Ghanaian producer DJ Juls is back with a new track "Gidigidi" featuring Ghanaian emcees M3NSA (of the rap duo FOKN Bois) and Pappy Kojo. The song's pleasantly subdued beat – reminiscent of early 90s jazz rap – is accompanied by energetic verses rhymed in the Ghanaian Fante dialect by Mensa and Pappy Kojo. Their swift, expressive flows provide a gripping contrast to the song's warm, relaxed production. DJ Juls sums up "Gidigidi" with this frank statement: "the song is basically us just telling people to take their time in life. No need to act all pompous because people know the real you and you just look like a clown pretending to be something you're not." Listen to Juls, M3NSA and Pappy Kojo's mellow "Gidigidi" below.

Interview: Wavy The Creator Is Ready to See You Now

The multidisciplinary Nigerian-American artist on tapping into all her creative outlets, creating interesting things, releasing a new single and life during quarantine.

A trip canceled, plans interrupted, projects stalled. It is six months now since Wavy the Creator has had to make a stop at an undisclosed location to go into quarantine and get away from the eye of the pandemic.

The professional recording artist, photographer, writer, fashion artist, designer, and evolving creative has been spending all of this time in a house occupied by other creatives. This situation is ideal. At least for an artist like Wavy who is always in a rapid motion of creating and bringing interesting things to life. The energy around the house is robust enough to tap from and infuse into any of her numerous creative outlets. Sometimes, they also inspire trips into new creative territories. Most recently, for Wavy, are self-taught lessons on a bass guitar.

Wavy's days in this house are not without a pattern, of course. But some of the rituals and personal rules she drew up for herself, like many of us did for internal direction, at the beginning of the pandemic have been rewritten, adjusted, and sometimes ditched altogether. Some days start early and end late. Some find her at her sewing machine fixing up thrift clothes to fit her taste, a skill she picked up to earn extra cash while in college, others find her hard at work in the studio, writing or recording music.
