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.
