Sarkodie takes on the Ghanaian electricity crisis over a Fela Kuti sample in the Peewezel-produced single "Dumsor."
Sarkodie takes on the electricity crisis in Ghana in his latest single "Dumsor" (named after the popular Ghanaian term for blackouts). The track sees Sarkodie heavily criticizing the government and the Electricity Company of Ghana as part of the #DumsorMustStop campaign, on which he's been joined by Ghanaian actresses Yvonne Nelson and Lydia Forson. The Peewezel-produced single features the Ghanaian rapper's usual rapid-fire Twi delivery, as Sarkodie goes in over a sample of Fela Kuti's "Lady."
