Ghanian rapper M.anifest describes the dynamic push and pull of his homeland on Confusion
Africa is a diverse and energetic place. It is the youngest continent on earth. There is such beauty and creativity there and it exists with corruption, danger and tragedy. M.anifest, the Ghanaian hip-hop legend, sees all of this in his homeland, and he expresses and describes it forcefully in his new single "Confusion."
This percussive banger is one for the streets and the clubs and it finds M.anifest addressing the joys and struggles that the people face not only in his homeland, but in cities and towns worldwide.
The song's title expresses the feeling that comes as people seek the balance the contrast between the life of a city where the breakneck speed of the day can come to the halt because of a traffic jam or where the expected innocence of youth can be stripped away as children are exposed to adult issues and problems.
M.anifest's perceptive eye and tight flow and he has a deep understanding of counterpoint. The descriptive realness of the song's lyrics and M.anifest's assertive and prophetic flow are balanced against a musical arrangement that sports a festive and percussive dance beat and triumphant sounding horns. The contrast lends the lyrics even more power.
M.anifest has captured the attention of fans and fellow artists worldwide. He's collaborated with Chicago rapper Vic Mensa, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Erykah Badu. That is why publications like The Guardian UK as Africa's foremost rapper.
