When asked about the significance of utilizing English in a song, he stated that music is a vibration that transcends language, although it’s good when people understand the lyrics.

“Music is a vibration and someone might not understand the language used in a song but yet jams to it even the beat of the song can make you like it,” he said in an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com

He continued “We’ve listened to Angelique Kidjo for a long time and we feel her songs but I agree that when you understand the words used in the songs that’s also very helpful.

“But that’s not the main thing although we were colonized by Englishmen and that language is worldwide, however, in doing music your identity should be inside”.
