Music of Thursday, 16 August 2012
As Ghanaians continue to enjoy the fast tempo songs and afro beats which have become dominant all over the world in a short while, music enthusiasts and music lovers would realise that another highlife tune which has received a lot of commendation and radio rotation is “Odo” from Tema based music group R2Bees made up of Paedae and Mugeez.
A quick transition one would say after dropping a much talked about track, “Ajeeii” which went nationwide, the hit makers are now out with “Odo” which is a typical highlife tune fused with rap from Paedae. This terrain seemed quite unexpected.
Responding to questions in an exclusive phone interview with NY DJ, Host f Homestretch on Kapital Radio 97.1MHz in Kumasi as to why the music group would go through such a quick transition to do such genre after “Ajei” which was an azonto track, Paedae of R2Bees, said; “a lot of people are surprised but I believe it’s a positive surprise and that shows how unpredictable we are but one thing we shouldn’t forget is that highlife is indigenous Ghanaian music and so every Ghanaian artist no matter the genre of music you do must at least do one highlife song since its indigenous to get the connection with the people. That kept us to do this song.”
Although the group explains “Odo” was not really planned, they were surprised at the massive support it is receiving and asked that their fans continue to show them the love they have given them since the days of “I dey mad” and “Yawa Girl”.
R2bees has currently released another hit single titled, “Life”.
