Ace Ghanaian rapper M.anifest is set to drop the video for his fiery single BEAR. He posted the announcement, together with a 10- second snippet of the video via social media site Twitter.
Produced by fast-rising producer Drumroll, BEAR (which is widely speculated to be acronym for Best Ever African Rapper) is off the rapper’s fifth album Nowhere Cool, released in September 2016.
About Nowhere Cool
Describing it as his most “industrious” effort yet, rapper M.anifest’s Nowhere Cool, his fourth studio album, was released to instant acclaim, and has been widely tipped as Album of the Year, 2016. It is also the project through which he stakes his most vehement claim to rap elitism in Ghana so far.
Through 14 songs, a precocious Kwame Ametepee Tsikata (as he’s known privately), discusses everything from love, politics, sex, ambition and setback, neglect, etc.
On an album crafted with careful hands, powerful wisdom, wit, and sparkling language, by an artist known for composing songs of established value, Time No Dey (ft. Worlasi) is extra-special.
