Stogie T and Boity Connect on ‘Original Recipe (Remix)’

Listen to Stogie T and Boity's 'Original Recipe (Remix).'

About a month ago, Stogie T released "Original Recipe Freestyle," a song that took many fans by surprise. In the song, the veteran MC, who's known for his proficiency as a hardcore lyricist, is crooning with the aid of auto-tune, mumble rap style.


By now, you should have figured out that the song was part of KFC's #TheWrapGameHasChanged campaign. Touchline and Boity were known to be part of the campaign, but their involvement beyond appearing on the TV ad, wasn't clear. Well, not until last week.

Boity joined Stogie T to perform a new verse for "Original Recipe Freestyle" at the fast food franchise's Kentucky Nights. The full song was released yesterday, with Boity's verse added.

Boity's flow is solid, and there's really nothing you can do about it. She delivers her verse with conviction, drops some lines that cleverly reference KFC.

As much as this collaboration was facilitated by a brand, it's interesting to hear Boity rap alongside an OG like Stogie T, and him challenging himself to do what the kids do.

Listen to "Original Recipe Freestyle Remix" below and revisit our interview with Boity here.

Linked to the 400th year commemoration of the first recorded landing of slaves in the United States, it became a launchpad for the Ghanaian government to convince Black people around the world to permanently settle in the West African country.

Aisha Asamany, a corporate management consultant for high-profile UK financial institutions turned self-taught luxury jewelry designer was one of many who heeded the call, trading in the corporate life for a spiritual and an entrepreneurial journey – one of joy, appreciation, and representation in her fatherland.
