M.anifest, Kelvyn Boy & Kel P Release 'We No Dey Hear' and Accompanying Visuals.

M.anifest Recruits Kelvyn Boy and Kel-P for New Single 'We No Dey Hear'

The trio also releases the accompanying visuals for the laid-back new single.

M.anifest has just dropped his latest single "We No Dey Hear" as well as the accompanying visuals for the laid-back track. The Ghanaian rapper recruits fellow artist Kelvyn Boy and the inimitable Nigerian producer Kel-P on the track which speaks to human resilience and triumphing against all odds.

Naturally, Kel-P comes through with an infectious beat while M.anifest delivers a number of impressive verses which coupled with Kelvyn Boy's catchy hook, adds to the uplifting lyricism of the song. Instrumentals take a back seat in this number with the minimal use of drums and stringed instruments allowing the strong message to take centre stage instead.

The music video, which was directed by Allison Swank, was shot in Ghana's vibrant capital city Accra. Scenes of ordinary people going about their daily lives and relishing in their wins, however small, support the overarching theme of the song. The scenes also dart between the hustle and bustle of the city during the day and the even livelier atmosphere of the nightlife scene.

If you're looking for a feel-good bop to lift your spirits, we've got you covered.

Watch Wizkid and Tems Perform Their Global Hit 'Essence' Live on Fallon

Take a look at the Nigerian stars' latest stop, as they take their chart-topping Grammy-nominated single around the world.

Nigerian singer and songwriter WizKid was joined by fellow Nigerian pop sensation Tems this week, to perform the duo's smash hit "Essence" live on The Tonight Show: Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The single, off of Wizkid's 2020 Grammy-nominated masterpiece Made In Lagos, was also nominated for a Grammy in the Best Global Music Album and Performance categories respectively. Due to the travel restrictions recently imposed on African countries because of the latest COVID-19 variant, the soulful rendition was performed from an empty stadium, instead of live from Fallon's New York City studio.

Made In Lagos has not left the charts since its release in October 2020, and the success continues to rain in for Wizkid, as the afrobeats star's project recently made history. During his European leg of his Made In Lagos tour, the singer was honored by London's infamous O2 music arena for being the first African musician to sell out 3 shows in a row.
