Wurld Gave Me The Easiest Entry Into Nigeria With His ‘AfroSoul’ EP : Ghanaian Producer Wakayna

Published

on

Fast-rising Ghanaian Producer/Singer, Wakyana, is with a fat grin even before this story gets published across our platform.

Wakayna who scored an appearance on Nigerian Afrobeats Singer, Wurld’s latest Album (EP) titled “AfroSoul” was quite elated that one of his productions got listed for the album.

“Birthday Song, Palmwine Riddim”, the classic he produced for Wurld is one of the popular songs from the “AfroSoul” EP which featured legendary Ghanaian Hiplife Singer, Zeal, (of VVIP fame). The album (EP) was released in May 2020.

Narrating the whole connect to BeenieWords.com, Wakayna says it was one of the earliest surprises he got from his works this year. The beat for that song he says was purposely meant for Zeal of VVIP. But little did he know Zeal had a bigger plan for it. According to Wakayna, Zeal “got that afro-fusion style in his music. I contacted Zeal and he recorded his version and later sent the beat to Wurld. Coincidentally on the 6th of March 2019 I got a message from Zeal that Wurld has voiced on the beat, then he sent me the unmixed version of the song to listen. I was extremely happy because it’s a birthday song sent to me on my birthday.”

“It feels good working with a great artiste like Wurld. He is one of Africa’s finest vocalist, I love his work ethics. I think every producer will love to work with him. I have worked with lots of Nigerian artistes but Wurld is the first mainstream artiste from Nigeria I’ve worked with so far. And I can say for a fact that I am honoured to be on his ‘Afrosoul’ EP. It’s worth the expectations and even more,” Wakayna concludes.

Wurld in a radio interview with YFM Ghana 107.9 days ago also eulogized the Ghanaian Producer, Wakayna, for the spectacular production.

Wurld however dropped a latest video titled “Wayo” earlier this week on Wednesday, July 8, 2020. The song video is one of the singles of his AfroSoul EP.
