Yes, exactly what the title says ‘’No Pressure’’. Literally, no pressure. I’ve been doing this, as you said over 10 years. And it’s very difficult, especially for a rapper in Africa, to be able to keep it for that long. So, I think I’ve gained a right to be able to believe and trust myself and trust the process and the pace that I go, because I feel like a lot of people rush to impress so quick that you put out everything that you got and now you have nothing left to show the people.
Ghana is in a right space now. Every generation takes it to the next level. So, these new guys are going to do way bigger than what everybody has done, and that’s what’s going to happen generation after generation because they’re looking at what we did and looking at the flaws and they’re going to better it, especially for the Kumerica movement.
The spiritual thing about the song is Oxlade apparently had recorded a song for me even before meeting me as Sarkodie. So, him as a young artist wrote the song, thinking this song is for Sarkodie. Yeah.So long ago, apparently he was like in a DM trying to hit me up about, ‘’Bro, I have a song. I have a song’’. So now, when we met it’s like, this is a song that I wrote for you. So, it was very, very… It’s a moment for me, very spiritual.
