When Nigeria’s King of Comedy jumps on a track alongside the country’s favourite rapper/actor/president of the Sweet Boys Association and leading Ghanaian highlife musician, there’s bound to be grooving.
Ahead of the launch of the highly anticipated Showmax Original Ghana Jollof, Basketmouth, Falz TheBahdGuy and Kwabena Kwabena have cooked up the highlife-infused companion track ‘Ghana Jollof’ for the show.
The single is the first off the soundtrack album for the upcoming comedy series, which is executive produced by Basketmouth and stars AMVCA-award-winning actor/comedian, Funnybone and AMAA nominee/YouTuber Akah Nnani as two Nigerians who move to Ghana in search of greener pastures.
Shot on location in both Lagos and Accra, the show also stars comedian/actor Buchi and Uzor Arukwe, who starred as dreaded crime boss Knight in Sugar Rush.
Bringing in the Ghanaian flavour are heartthrobs Mawuli Gavor (Chief Daddy), and James Gardiner, who currently stars in Ghana’s popular telenovela Dede. There’s also the uncontested ‘Queen of Ghana comedy’ and actress Jacinta Ocansey, popular reality star Portia Freelove, model and actress Brihanna Kinte, veteran actor Jackson Albert Davies (Beasts of No Nation), actress Korkor Oyeba Mensah, and multiple-award-winning comedian/actor Kalybos.
The track is produced by Duktor Sett, who also produced Basketmouth’s debut album, Yabasi, while the video for it is set to drop on 3 September.
