Sensational singer Efya and Dancehall Artist MzVee exhibited a dazzling rap of Cardi B’s Bodak Yellow on a high-life mixed with hip-hop instrumental at the just ended Wave Concert organized by Lynx Entertainment on December 29, 2017 at the Achimota Retail Centre in Accra.
“Bodak Yellow” (alternatively titled “Bodak Yellow” (Money Moves) is a song written and recorded by American rapper Cardi B released on June 16, 2017 by Atlantic Records as her debut single on a major record label.
Both Cardi B’s flow on the song and the song’s title is a response to Florida-based rapper Kodak Black and his 2014 song “No Flockin” Bodak Yellow.
The song has topped the US Billboard Hot 100 chart for three consecutive weeks, making Cardi B the fifth female rapper to ever lead the chart, and the second-ever to do so with a solo output after Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing)” in 1998.
The song won Single of the Year at the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards. It is nominated for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song at the 60th Grammy Awards.
Audiences all over Ghana also witnessed supporting performances from hit singles Angela and Odo from Eugene and KiDi respectively and esteemed artistes including Adina, Vvip, King Promise, Tinny, Edem, Yaa Pono, Kurl Songz, Akwaboah, Magnom, Kojo Cue, Shaker, B4Bonah, Opanka, Cina Soul, Cj Biggerman, Freda Rhyme, Dope Nation, Nana Yaa Patch Bay Band, and Dj Vyrusky.
