Nana Boro the artist behind one of 2010’s biggest hip life joints is back with another party track. Admittedly he had a tough act to follow with ‘Aha Ye De’ and he’s chosen to go for a slightly different feel with this one.
‘Nsem Pii’ seems to sample the same syth melody from Edward Maya’s 2009 hit ‘Stereo Love’. The synth is a lot higher but the melody is exactly the same, though the beat that kicks in is distinctly afrobeats. It makes for a very interesting mix that fits together surprisingly well, providing a great backdrop for Nana Boro’s auto tuned musings in both French and Twi.
The track is one to move to, and while it was quite an ambitious idea to mix hip life and western dance music on one track it doesn’t really seem to live up to the vibes of Aha Ye De, but then again it could be a grower!
