Watch M.anifest Drop Fire Bars in New Freestyle on Tim Westwood TV
Veteran Ghanaian rapper M.anifest spits an impressive freestyle on Tim Westwood TV.
One of Ghana and the continent's most talented lyricists M.anifest recently dropped by Tim Westwood's show. And, as is the tradition on the famed UK DJ and cultural icon's show, an MC must prove themselves by, well, rapping.
M.anifest makes it look easy, flowing effortlessly over Drake's "Duppy Freestyle" instrumental. He's not playing with us, the first two bars ("Oh Father who art in heaven, does that mean you paint pictures?/ I do the same on earth and put my pain on scriptures") set the benchmark, and he maintains the same standard throughout. He displays comfort, confidence, great breath control, and spits lines that reference a wide range of topics and fields. He flows with ease, spitting every word with crisp clarity.
In the interview with Westwood, the MC discussed his upcoming EP, which has no release date yet, and features Burna Boy, Worlasi and Simi. He also spoke about being an immigrant in the west as an African and how the challenges you face build character, among other things.
Tim Westwood joins a long list of Ghanian artists who have appeared on Tim Westwood's show including Sarkodie, Kwesi Arthur, Stonebwoy and more.
