Introducing…… ‘Hype Life’ the new genre created by Ghana’s most mischievous and alternative duo, the FOKN Bois. As ever the song is not short on humour and has an easy going vibe about it.
Completely in Pidgin the track takes us through what happens when the FOKN Bois they sit down to create together. The song gives a real sense of the dynamic the Bois share, as we hear them bouncing ideas off each other as well as the procrastination and arguments that occur when they work together.
The beat is a mixure of hi-life, and hip hop it includes retro organ sounds which add a nice funk feel to the track. Calling out the names of foods in the chorus adds an element of randomness to the track which is in keeping with the fun and carefree image that these guys alway bring to everything they do; and is in a way reminscent of Gyedu Blay Ambolley’s lyrical style.
‘Only Your Walkings’ is a truly original song both musically and concept wise. It is a true feat that they manage to incorporate old school afrobeat with modern day hip hop and pull it off so well. As far as the concept goes I for one completely enjoyed my walk with the FOKN Bois on their creative journey!
