Pappykojo is on fire and it’s only early on in the year! After releasing Balance in line with his tradition of releasing new songs every new year, the artiste follows his hit single with ‘Blessing’ featuring La Même Gang’s Spacely.
‘Blessing’ is a feel good-song matched visually with scenes from a floral installation by V-for Vanity – a stunning exhibition which was well attended over the holidays. We see PappyKojo rap about this beautiful one-of -a-kind girl while Spacely agrees with catchy mid-tempo lines bound to get even the most reluctant listener off their feet.
Pappykojo continues to challenge our ideas of afrobeats, pioneering the new wave of young Ghanaian artistes unafraid to explore the depths and intricacies of afrobeats. Rather than hide, Pappy has been open about his struggles with depression, fostering an intimate connection with his fans. This honesty with himself makes ‘Blessing’ a breath of fresh air.
It’s a song for anyone who has felt the warmth that comes with finding someone special, the fascination from the countless discoveries to be made about each other – love in it’s honeymoon phase –
The video paints a narrative with colors and motion that is breath-taking, from the slow-motion of the gorgeous model to the vivid red of a receding Challenger.
‘Blessing’ is a fraction of an even bigger picture Pappykojo paints with his Logos II album, an album centered on love, so that fans are taken on an auditory journey from the sound of waves caressing shore lines to high-tempo, high-strung baselines on a bed of afrobeats with features from Sarkodie, Kwesi Arthur, Medical amongst many other artistes.
Produced by Altra Nova and directed by Tee Sangari, ‘Blessing’ lingers long after the last lines ends, leaving listeners reminiscing about how it feels to ‘find the one’. It’s a song you’re bound to sing to your significant other, best friend or crush.
