Ghanaian rapper and song writer, M.anifest has revealed his 14-track album ‘Nowhere Cool’ was inspired by renowned writer, Prof. Ama Ata Aidoo’s short story ‘Nowhere Cool’.
“The actual title was inspired by Ama Ata Aidoo’s book the short story of the same title, for me somebody who has lived different lives at different places, I felt ‘Nowhere cool’ will be an appropriate way to tell different stories of life, because sometimes that is how it feels”, M.anifest told Ultimate FM’s Naa Klordey Odonkor.
According to the ‘god MC’ singer, ‘Nowhere cool’ which appropriately describes different stories of life has taken the Ghanaian airwaves since its launch on September 8, describing it as one of his best albums released so far.
“I think basically I was committed to making sure that whatever I was committed to will be to take some time away from music, and prepare an album that will push the boundaries of Ghana, that will clearly be above and beyond anything that I have done before, that is what ‘Nowhere Cool’ presented to me,” he noted.
