"Adowa Tywant ft Akan & Sister Deborah"

Produced by Kweku Ananse. 🕷🕸🎹🎧 Ananse sampled traditional Adowa music from the Akan people, namely the Ashanti, and layered it with some Rhodes.

I rap about a girl who is self determined and does not give in to societal pressures. Humans are wired to seek approval, especially from immediate family members, so it takes a lot of vim to go against zombie expectations.

Akan spits a groovy poetic 16 with the first line saying "she has pulled out her eyes (or roasted her eyes) & eaten them" which means she is not shy or afraid...and then drops a bunch of keys 🔑🗝i will have to break down the whole verse seperate.

Sister Deborah is my sister and someone I admire for not being swayed by ancient societal or familial expectations so I needed her energy to bring conviction to the chorus.

Adowa
Adowa

C d way she dey move
E heavenly body b d only proof
Wey e dey hia me to know say she b god
E curvy structure like som calabash gourd
The look for e eyes
Dey make u feel say nottin fit to soprise am
She wink at the sun seff she dey mezmerise am
Dey huu me more times say dey dey criticise am
And oh what a dance
An ancient Egyptian lost in a trance
Wey e no b to flaunt
She say shut the fuck up i do what i want

She dey feel the groove
An artisan carving a piece of wood
No dey mean to be rude
But sometimes she just no dey hia no dude
Mek u follow e feet if d rhythm dey conf u 2 find d beat
She no dey shy chale she no b discreet
E body language dey blind the street
E family say mek she shun Sankofa n start watch e front
She tell dem mek dey shut d fuck up coz she dey do wot she want
