M.anifest has appreciated Amaarae for being different in her music after she made it to the top 100 on the chart.

He mentioned that to be an artiste means to go on a path different from others and that’s exactly what Amaarae is doing.

“Anybody that has been successful from Ghana has been bold and charted a new path. You’ve seen what is happening with Amaarae. Well, she may not be popular in Ghana but it doesn’t matter because now she is charting on the US Billboard charts, nobody has done it and that is what I’m talking about”, he said in an interview with Graphic Showbiz.

He also noted that “If you are an artiste, you know you don’t have plenty of resources but you have to use your creativity to break new grounds”.

Amaarae is mostly known for her unique appearance that comes with different colours on her hair and glasses. She is known for her representation of gender and race in her music.

The single is making her a household name around the world. Only after it was remixed with a feature from Kali Uchis, she then became a viral hit on social media and streaming platforms, charting globally.

Meanwhile, Amaarae has shared her under 100 billboard achievements on her Instagram, listing all the other platforms her song is doing well on and the number of people who have used her song on TikTok counting well over 1.7 million and more.
