Wave making hip-hop artiste Ephraim Ezenduka popularly known as Ghostbwoy has ‘elevated’ Olamide’s trending song ‘Motigbana’ with the infusion of crisp African instruments, to take the melody of the song to a whole new level.
Produced by DJ Sleek, the ‘Motigbana Cover’ by Ghostbwoy has an infusion of highlife, with lyrics in local dialects including Igbo, with many describing the hot jam as ‘a perfect blend’.
“I am a faithful lover of any good sound. I mean the sound was just attractive to me. However it was a friend that prompted me to attempt a cover of the song, you never can tell what it results to. So I took it up and it wasn’t a bad idea after all. Big ups to Olamide and Killertunes the producer,” Ghostbwoy who is also a staunch fan of Olamide said.
The multi-talented singer who can play several musical instruments is currently working on a song titled ‘Juli’ which according to him would be released before the end of 2018.
“It will drop before the year ends. It is a deeply rooted afro feeling with a major difference. I’m very much excited about the song. Just getting on the proper and final touch for it now and it will be my sophomore single so to say and believe me when I say that “Juli” will turn the table around, cos it’s like something you’ve never heard of, at least not in a long while,” Ghostbwoy added.
Asked how growing up was like, the youngster revealed that he grew up in a home of musicians and in fact started playing musical instruments at the age of 12.
“I grew up with my parents and siblings. Both of my parents are musicians. My mum who is late now was a music instructor, she had her master’s degree in Music. My dad who used to be the lead vocalist for their high-life band group back then, still serves as a prominent church choirmaster till today. So I grew up in a music saturated atmosphere and it powerfully influences and controls the life I live today.
“I started playing the keyboard at the age of 12years and today I can’t count how many of the instruments I can handle because I’m yet to see the one I basically can’t handle as long as it has to do with music.
“I’ve played and served in many capacities in churches before I got to the University and then started getting more interested in doing the circular music, so I started practicing and experimenting on music production and stuffs like that. My upbringing was and is still fun and enriching above all.”
