Watch Juls' New Video For 'Saa Ara' Featuring Kwesi Arthur & Akan

We premiere the beautiful Ghanaian-shot music video.

Juls has been delivering steady hits for years now.

In his recent single, "Saa Ara," the producer teams up with buzzing Ghanaian rapper Kwesi Arthur and Akan for an infectious blend of vintage highlife instrumentals and booming hip-hop beats

The single is now receiving a beautiful new music video shot Ghana. It features epic shots of the coastline and Elmina Castle, the first trading post built on the Gulf of Guinea and the oldest European building south of the Sahara.

"Saa Ara" is something so special to me that I HAD to go back home to Ghana to shoot the video," Juls tells OkayAfrica.


"I wanted it to be as traditional as possible with iconic shots of the Ancient Elmina castle and surrounding areas. The meaning of "Saa Ara" translate as 'We working hard to make it, despite all the obstacles that come our way'. I come from a linage of people that work extremely hard; and I'm so proud to be a Ghanaian. Press play and enjoy my beautiful country!"

Watch our premiere of video for "Saa Ara," directed by Babs Direction, below.
