First Listen: M.anifest’s ‘Someway Bi’ Is An Unintended Homage To Fela Kuti


M.anifest’s yet-to-be-released EP, Apae: The Price of Free, is clearly shaping up to be a surefire hit. Following up on July’s fantastic Ebei: Dream Killers, the latest single from the Ghanaian spitter’s upcoming hip hop project is the jazz-infused Someway Bi — a perhaps unintended homage to Fela Kuti’s legendary Afrobeat genre. Delivered in his all-too-familiar (but not at all mind-numbing) laidback style, the Accra native’s signature whip-smart quips are as sharp as ever on this feel-good Yung Fly production. Replay, maybe?
