K.Junior pioneers the fusion of Amapiano and Highlife on new single ‘Mansa’

We find ourselves in an era where there is a lot of experimental music coming from the new breed of artists who are young, gifted, and very bold.

Fearless in their pursuit of music, they do not shy away from trying out new things, and thanks to this class, music genres have gotten very spicy and the lines that categorize these genres keep blurring out. Listen/stream

K.Junior takes on this mantle very well. As a Highlife musician, his goal is to take this genre which originated in Ghana in the 19th century to the world.
Joining the likes of Ebo Taylor, Osibisa, and Pat Thomas, he has a master plan to attain this. Simple yet complex, he plans to achieve this feat by fusing Highlife music with more prominent and trending genres. 
For his first attempt, he jumps on Amapiano, a sub-genre of House music that emerged in South Africa in 2016 and is growing into one of the biggest genres making rounds with 80% of its listeners residing outside of South Africa.
K.Junior tackles this very well by seamlessly merging the two genres (Amapiano and Highlife) on his latest single ‘Mansa’ and earning him the title of Pioneer of this fusion of Amapiano and Highlife with excitement to see other artists/producers join in. 
‘Mansa’ starts with a Ghanaian traditional percussion pattern known to Kpanlogo that will get you bopping your head right from the moment you hit play.

This is followed by a smooth piano melody and consistent synth which are key elements in Amapiano. Then comes the chorus, singing in the style of a Ghanaian traditional choir with all vocals harmonized beautifully. Somewhere along the line comes the jazzy saxophone which will blow you away.
The merger of these two genres is a mission that has been perfectly executed and K.Junior brought his own Ghanaian homegrown flavor to the well-received Amapiano.
By all the standards, the production of this song is top-notch and very well crafted.
The lyrics are easy to grasp and sing along and the rhythm and melody will definitely get you busting some dance moves wherever you find yourself. K.Junior deserves his flowers for the production and performance of this masterpiece.
We know you will enjoy ‘Mansa’ as much as we did and smacking it on replay will be inevitable.

Patricia Mawuli

TBT: Meet Patricia Mawuli a 25 year old Ghanaian woman she discovered her passion at the age of 19.

One day whilst in the bush cutting trees in her small rural town, she saw small planes flying overhead. Out of curiosity she decided to find where the planes were coming from.

 

patricia mawuli

She was keen to work at Kpong airfield, she was given a job to clear shrubs from the highway which she took with gratitude. Later she luckily landed herself in the workshop.

She learnt how to build aircraft from scratch and was given a scholarship to pursue aviation, within a short period of 6 months she was given her flying license. Patricia has built planes for schools, clubs and organisation.

Patricia Mawuli has a school where she trains women to repair aircraft or to build them.

She is helping her society, moving people from one place to the other including school children to their schools to bypass traffic.

Patricia Mawuli is the first woman to be awarded Ghana’s national pilot’s license and the first black African and only woman in the world to be a certified rotax engine mechanic and is personally flying a Zenith CH701 powered by the all new Rotax 912 iS engine.


“Patricia has been offered jobs all over the world. She could leave Ghana tomorrow, travel outside and multiply her earnings to 20, 30 times, easily. She turns them all down. Why?

Because she chooses to make the sacrifice to stay in Ghana to teach others to build and fly. Now that’s sustainability,”

Young people should understand that hard work is the only secret to success and you must stay focused in everything you do if you want to succeed in life.” Patricia Mawuli Nyekodzi.
