Finally, an official tribute to the Highlife legend; Dasebre Gyamena. Sarkodie did a refix to his hit single ‘Kokooko’ and featured the singing sensation, Akwaboah on it. Song produced by Jayso.
Dasebre Gyamena’s ‘Kokooko’ is one of the biggest hits in the history of Ghana music. The legendary record featured retired rapper Lord Kenya (Now a minister of God) and it was a big hit and a proud moment for Hip-life and Ghana. I got to know recently that, Dasebre did not want a rap verse in the song; but was later convinced and Lord Kenya delivered that master piece! It’s just right Sarkodie chose this song to do a refix to. Brings back lots of memories.
As a rapper, Sarkodie had to sink into the concept in the first verse before paying respect to the Highlife legend. I don’t know if it’s just me or nobody in the mainstream did a tribute for Dasebre Gyamena? I stand to be corrected but I am not sure anyone did. Well, I won’t be surprised if tributes start flooding our airwaves after Sarkodie’s. Well, download free music below and share.
