He followed that up with the official video to the lead single off the EP, a heavy collabo between Mike and Ghana's top reggae and dancehall act Stonebwoy, titled "Super Mario." "Super Mario" is a hat tip to star footballer Mario Balotelli, in which he likens his style, swag, and cool to that of the high-flying athlete's.
Worlasi 'Fkn Guy'
Supertalented act Worlasi came out with a new single, simply titled "Fkn Guy." The single is rapidly gaining traction on social media, for Worlasi's honest admission of being a ''f****** guy," so to speak. Produced by Lisa the Composer and Qube, "Fkn Guy" is a representation of guys who like to do all the wrong things, in relationships, in friendships, and just about everywhere else.
Ebony 'John 8:7' ft. Wendy Shay

Shatta Wale 'Lift (VGMA Diss)'
This month Ghanaian dancehall heavyweight Shatta Wale dropped a diss track titled "Lift", where he descended heavily on the Ghana Music Awards (the VGMAs) and its organizers, Charter House. On the song, he lambasts the organizers of the award scheme following the announcement they made without his consent that his indefinite ban had been lifted.
E.L 'Baba Dey'
Rapper and singer E.L takes a shot at comeback with the uplifting "Baba Dey." Here, he issues a timely reminder that God still watches over us, even amidst the tragedies of a most peculiar year. This record is reminiscent of his past hit records like "Koko" which was immensely acclaimed by fans worldwide when it was released back in 2015. "Baba Dey" follows a similar inspirational theme—urging us to hold on to our beliefs and never stop hoping and praying, because baba dey for us.
