The new remix of ‘Come & Go’ maintains the emotion and reflection that makes the original so special, with Black Sherif injecting some similarly powerful bars into the fray. The eye-catching accompanying video is made up of stunning, behind-the-scenes visuals of life on the road whilst in Lagos for this ever-growing global star. It was shot during ArrDee’s short trip to Nigeria, where he played at Homecoming Festival with Black Sherif and recorded the ‘24 Hours In Lagos’ freestyle with Tion Wayne.
Africa has become a key continent for ArrDee recently – Nigeria is his third biggest audience – so the fact he has linked up with one of the hottest rappers in the region right now further enhances his status, particularly across West Africa.
Black Sherif’s unique sound blends Ghanaian highlife with reggae, hip-hop and more. With highlife being Ghana’s authentic sound, his use of the genre has an instant effect on the country’s older generation, winning this 20-year old artiste a broad following. He has been further praised for his vocal range, but the actual catch is the substance in his writing and how relevant and relative it is to modern times.
This cross-continental collaboration is destined to heighten the global appeal of both artists involved.
Itty can be caught studying African pop culture, writing about it or hosting a relationship podcast. When he's not doing any of these, then he's definitely at a bar, getting mocktail.
